Iraq War veteran Scott Olsen was hit in the head with a projectile fired by police during their violent raid of the Occupy Oakland protests on Monday. Olsen was rendered unconscious, but his doctors at Oakland’s Highland Hospital listed him in critical, yet stable condition. It is now being reported that Olsen’s life may come to an end as a result of his injury.
According to The Guardian, Olsen’s skull was fractured and now his brain is beginning to swell. If Olsen dies, he would be the first ‘Occupy’ protester to die. Olsen served two tours in Iraq and after surviving war he could die because of an irresponsible and violence hungry American police officer.
