OAKLAND POLICE CRITICALLY INJURE Iraq Veteran Scott Olsen at Occupy Oakland on Mayors orders

All eyes are on military veteran Scott Olsen as he goes into surgery after injuries at Occupy Oakland, by the local police on orders from the Mayor, left him with FRACTURED SKULL & SWELLING OF THE BRAIN.

YouTube video of the incident shows Olsen, wearing his Marine jacket without his nametape, being carted through a cloud of tear-gas smoke to the sounds of shrieking activists. In a close up, his forehead appears bruised and bloodied. He stares up at his ad-hoc triage in a daze. When asked,“What's your name?” he can’t answer. Someone screams, "Medic!"

Shannon first got to know Olsen serving in Iraq from August 2006 to May 2007, when the two worked tactical communications as part of the Marines' 3rd Battalion. Olsen subsequently served a second tour. "We both came out against the war," Shannon said.

Olsen was never injured during his two tours in Iraq.

UPDATE: 4:20 p.m.-- New video posted to YouTube suggests that Olsen was hit at close range with a tear-gas canister. After demonstrators rush to Olsen's aid, an Oakland cop waits a few beats before lobbing a second tear-gas canister at the crowd. They are attending to Olsen when the canister explodes, sending smoke everywhere.

Is this guy a plant? Wouldn't surprise us if they use him to get people worked up!
