    I like how you evaded my point.

    Re: Injured Iraq veteran is face of Occupy movement

    So a kid who owns "ihatethemarines" blog and goes by that moniker, who was administratively discharged for cocaine use (other than honorable), who has been openly hostile to the Marines, is the face of the #ows movement?

    Shocking I tells ya!

    The police have the right to defend themselves from thrown objects and to disperse the crowd. However, there are limits on the amount force allowed based on the threat. Firing a multitude of projectiles at people who are already running away is not proper use of force. Firing a flashbang at a seriously wounded person and those attempting help him is not proper use of force. Firing projectiles into a crowd is very likely to cause serious injuries and possible a fatality. There would have to be a far greater threat than people throwing cans and bottles toward police to justify the use of projectiles.

    Every police officer I know is appalled by what the Oakland police did.

    To everybody: Watch the video, and note what happens at the 1:45 mark. The cannister is clearly coming from the police, and explodes right in the midst of those who were attempting to provide medical assistance to the wounded vet.
    Dude..... watch from the 45 second mark.... The freaking smoking munition is flying into the police line from the area controlled by the demonstrators.

    I did notice something though... the creator of this video HAS better footage... because the last portion of this is the same "clip" from another video that shows him when he falls.

    They just wanted to show you the "spark" and try to make you think that "spark" was him getting hit.... I must now go dig up that other video so you can see.

    Actually, no he's not he's just whining about bottle and rock throwing and about how the protestors had the gall to defend themselves against a tear gas attack.
    They aren't defending themselves if they started attacking.

    Why are you being dishonest repeatedly?

    Who was already running away?

    I REALLY need to get off my ass and find that video ... It not only shows Olsen wasn't hit in the face with round, but it shows protesters not only NOT running away, but grabbing used percussion grenades and other munitions used by police and throwing them back at the police........

    Re: Injured Iraq veteran is face of Occupy movement



    And there it is.... watch closely on the right side for the guy who falls. around the :23 or :25 second mark.

    Also, during that same time frame, at the :26 second mark you can see a guy in the middle of the screen throwing objects at police..... Running away my ass.

    Also, you can see, again, the smoke munition coming FROM the crowd TOWARDS the police.

    EDIT: The guy throwing **** is actually around the same :23 or :24 second mark

    I know, right? We are hunting bear and I didnt go off chasing after your bunny rabbit. Dammit. You want to talk China, start a thread. This thread is about Oakland, a bunch of miscreants that vowed to take back the park from the evil Po-lice (who acted on the direction of the government), and then went full retard and started throwing rocks and bottles at the cops.
