BREAKING: Message from Scott Olsen - Occupy Oakland Marine injured by police

Scott Olsen  -  11:00  -  Mobile  -  Public

I’m feeling a lot better, with a long road in front of me. After my freedom of speech was quite literally taken from me, my speech is coming back but I’ve got a lot of work to do with rehab. Thank you for all your support, it has meant the world to me. You’ll be hearing more from me in the near future and soon enough we’ll see you in our streets!

The US government sends these kids abroad to fight and hate foreign peoples, while pumping their naive brains full of ideas of freedom and liberty. When they return home and express those same ideals, they are attacked. It is a terrible hypocrisy when the citizens of nation awaken to reality of the duplicitous nature of their government.

“Video footage posted to YouTube shows Olsen lying motionless in front of a police line after apparently having been hit. A group of up to 10 protesters gather around him, but a police officer can be seen throwing a device close to the group which then explodes with a bright flash and loud bang, scattering the protesters.”
“I’m just absolutely devastated that someone who did two tours of Iraq and came home safely is now lying in a US hospital because of the domestic police force.”
