This is how freedom fighters are treated

An American marine veteran of the US war on Iraq is to undergo a brain surgery after suffering life-threatening injuries during an anti-Wall Street protest in Oakland, California, where police officers brutally attacked protesters on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old former US soldier, Scott Olsen, suffered a fracture on his skull when he was hit by a projectile fired by local American police forces during an Occupy Oakland protest, the Associated Press reported.

"He was standing perfectly still, provoking no one," said Raleigh Latham, an Oakland filmmaker shooting footage of the confrontation between police and hundreds of Occupy Oakland protesters.

While doctors await Olsen's brain swelling to ease to operate on it, his injury has intensified the focus of national attention on Occupy Oakland in the aftermath of repeated police tear-gassing of protesters Tuesday.

Tuesday's clashes appear to have re-energized the US Occupy Movement, as Oakland protesters have vowed to shut-down the city next Wednesday, to protest police brutality.

They have called on workers and students to join the protests and vowed to march on all banks and corporations who do not close down for the day.

The “Occupy Oakland” protests are part of the “Occupy Movement” in the US against pervasive economic inequality in the country, which has gone global and is now in its sixth week.

Our idea of democracy is so unbelievebly laughable

and you dont know nothnig either cos when the shit hits the fan its admin assistants like you who go first

i dont agree with them protesting either cos most dont know the real criminals,

but they know enough to knwo that companies like goldman sachs and many other investment banks are not even banks but just glorified betting houses that have so much power and influence over govt...then they flop and become too big to fail

so let them protest

and fuck you and your ugly russian bitch

This is the most rinsed comment coming from those against the protests.

It basically sums it.

You man are working with systems most of you don't even understand yourselves. Yet you argue that none of these protestors have a clue about economics, how dare they protest.

YOU'RE MISSING THE FUCKING POINT.

Either fully say, yea we're scummy, selfish and fucking greedy bastards. and We're in control. So what.

Or lowe it.

Cos that's literally what this whole thing is about.

The terrorist name was used with high levels of sarcasm, bro.

Policing needs to change worldwide.

They are just normal people themselves but when they put on that uniform they just turn into utter pricks.

There needs to be a study conducted into this phenomena.

If he did then it's karma.

I have no sympathy for servicemen, they know the score. Respect to the dead, but I honestly see it as karma when soldiers get limbs blown off. I would fight for my country if we were TRULY threatened.

If you are shipped to a foreign country to shoot at stuff for your country, you should know the score already. Orders are orders, if tear-gas is order you will get gassed, if baton-rounds come out, they come out.

If he was a good guy who tried to impart his beliefs onto others and tried to genuinely help, then God bless him. Killing is a sin, though..

didnt Derren Brown do an experiment on this on Friday?

saw the ad for it, never watched it, but he was talkin about how people can be normal, but given anonymity and being ina group can turn into online bullies etc
