What does anyone know about this “Scott Olsen”, is he a REAL Iraq/Afghan Combat Vet or is he a Paper-Pushin’ REMF? We need to know!

The media is delighted. Leftists always benefit from tragedy.

How ironic that he had a good job, survived two tours in Iraq, only to sign on with a ‘professional’ gang of Marxists posing as protesters and moving targets for the media to get shots as they get pummeled of their own accord...

You swim with sharks, you get bit..

A helluva way to seek sympathy and gather support for anti-capitalism, but to the media who helped birth this pig, break out the spare lipstick..

I feel sorry for the poor guy, but let’s face it - you sleep with dogs, you get fleas. Now he’ll probably be the poster boy for the union thugs, who will increasingly feel empowered to goad the police.

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes...

The guy should have had enough SITAWARE (and common sense) to bug out from the area before the Oakland PD cleared the area.

All I saw was tear gas being fired above the crowd. Then a pan to someone lying on the ground with no tear gas around him and then lots of confusion....he was hit in the head by something and someone. I am not about to suggest this was done by the police

Very sad, but he shouldn’t have been there.

Question that needs to be asked, did protesters PROVOKE police?

Yup... Reminds me of what African President Lunda told Anthony Quinn...

We have a saying in the Bush, Unguama Intikiva: Be careful what you want, you might get it...

Don’t care. If he wasn’t down there running with marxist scum throwing their little tantrum it wouldn’t have happened.
