Scott Olsen--Hero?

As Paul Harvey used to's the REST of the story.

Scott Olsen is an Onalaska (WI) native who got a bit of attention because he was injured in an #Occupy Oakland (CA) demonstration.  Seriously injured.

The Oakland cop-shop is under pressure--deservedly--to determine how this happened.  Their take: the review of the video makes it entirely possible that Olsen was injured by something thrown AT the cops FROM the crowd of demonstrators.  It's not a settled issue.

But that's not all.  The ex-Marine hates the Corps--and the Jooooooos, too.

Too bad.

A new low--using a man who got hit in the frickin' head as a cause célèbre for the right's agenda to link a protest movement simply organized and inspired by anarchists who desire to ruin our country.

Regardless of whether he was unhappy of his tour of duty in Iraq, he represents the 10% of those who volunteer and became disgruntled with the military for a host of reasons. He is not a saint by any stretch of the imagination. But using him as a tool to declare him as an anti-hero equates to a savage contempt for human life, all because he expressed rather unpopular views, as protected by our First Amendment.
