Video From Occupy Oakland

This video clip shows protesters trying to come to the aid of Scott Olsen, who was struck in the head by a police "projectile" and suffered a skull fracture. He is not in the hospital listed in serious but stable condition. When a group of protesters tries to help Mr. Olsen, police standing behind a barricade nearby toss an incendiary device into the group, which explodes, causing the group to scatter. According to news reports Olsen is an Iraq war veteran and member of Veterans for Peace.

The Guardian, a British newspaper, is running frequent updates on this situation, as police crack down violently on the protest group in Oakland.
