The Huffington Post points out that U.S. Marine Scott Olsen (a veteran), seriously injured by Oakland cops who hurled a tear gas canister at his head then threw a flash grenade near his crumpled body as fellow demonstrators tried to help him, served not one but TWO tours in Iraq -- and never suffered an injury.


So Oakland’s cops did what sniper’s bullets, improvised explosive devices and rocket-propelled grenades couldn’t: they hurt a U.S. soldier.

Good job, Oakland PD.
