Video: Oakland Policeman Throws Flash Grenade Into Crowd Trying To Help Injured Protester

In spite of claims by Oakland Police that they were attacked by protesters I have yet to see any video or photos that substantiates that. The action by the authorities is a complete overreaction and on its face a police riot not a riot by protesters who are attempting to simply exercise their constitutional right to assemble.

Update:  Iraq war veteran Scott Olsen has been identified as the protester injured. He condition is being described as critical with a fractured skull and brain swelling after being hit by a police projectile.
