Occupy Oakland has me freaked the eff out

I’m supposed to travel to Oakland for work in a week and a half. If this is what I encounter, consider this my 2 weeks notice (that is, if I make it out alive…)

 

 

Like what the fuck? Seriously. It’s a god damn war zone with people screaming “Medic!” and shit like it’s an episode of Band of Brothers. I felt like I was watching video footage from Libya. So unreal…

UPDATE:

Apparently the injured man in the video is an Iraq war vet:

HuffingtonPost.com — The local police’s use of force seriously injured an Occupy activist and Iraq War veteran.

Scott Olsen, 24, remains sedated on a respirator, in stable but critical condition at Oakland’s Highland Hospital after being hit in the head with a police projectile.

Olsen’s roommate, Keith Shannon, 24, told The Huffington Post that Olsen is still in the emergency room.

Olsen was never injured during his two tours in Iraq.

Well if there was any chance of Occupy Wall Street settling down/fading out, that’s definitely gone out the window…
