Scott Olsen, an Iraq veteran who served two tours of duty, has been critically injured in the confrontation between Occupy Oakland protesters and police on Tuesday night in downtown Oakland. Olsen, a systems administrator living in Daly City who is originally from Wisconsin, is a member of Iraq Veterans Against the War and was discharged in 2010 after joining the U.S. Marines in 2006. He suffered a skull fracture from the impact of a “blunt object” and is currently in “serious but stable condition” at Highland Hospital in east Oakland. He has been sedated and has been examined by a neurosurgeon, and has only regained consciousness a few times.
