    trying to help injured Iraq veteran? Protesters take to the streets of New York and Oakland in solidarity after Marine was left in critical condition

    Ex-Marine Scott Olsen, 24, of Daly City, California, served in Iraq in 2006 and 2007 - and was hit in California protests
    Anger over Oakland police ‘brutality’ fans across America as protesters march in solidarity with Olsen on Wednesday
    Occupy Oakland activists trying to reclaim camp they were in for 15 days - until police evicted them early on Tuesday
    More trouble on Tuesday at 5pm when 400 people marched towards Frank Ogawa Plaza, which police surrounded
    Conditions in the Oakland camp were thought to have become unsavoury as tented town became semi-permanent
    Some protesters threw turquoise and red paint at riot police officers last night and others reportedly threw rocks
    Meanwhile in Atlanta, Georgia, dozens of protesters were evicted from a park and 53 were arrested by police

    Protesters took to the streets of New York and Oakland in force last night as anger boiled over after a two tour Iraq veteran was left seriously injured when he was blasted in the face by a police tear gas canister.

    War hero Scott Olsen, 24, was hospitalised in a serious condition after he suffered a fractured skull during a march with other protesters in the Californian city on Tuesday night.

    Questions were today being asked of how police handled the situation after videos emerged of an officer throwing a gas canister into the crowd after they had rushed to help Mr Olsen, who was on the floor.

    The OWES crowd should listen when told to get out and stop throwing rocks and shit at the cops . . . and maybe wear helmets if they decide to stay. That poor kid . . . . .
