Friends say Scott Olsen released from hospital
http://www.mercurynews.com/occupy-oakland/ci_19315180?source=most_viewed

4:45 p.m. Friends say Scott Olsen discharged from hospital

Friends gathered at Frank H. Ogawa Plaza say Scott Olsen, the 24-year-old military vet who witnesses say was hit in the head with a tear-gas canister on the night of Oct. 25, is out of the hospital.

Olsen fractured his skull when police and protesters clashed the night after the Occupy Oakland camp was torn down by police.

Also speaking at the rally is Oscar Grant's uncle, Cephus Johnson, also a veteran.

(That's the full article)

1. Last I heard he wasn't able to speak. I wonder if he can now or if
he has to learn to talk again?

2. Glad to hear he's well enough to go home!
But reporting that "Olsen fractured his skull when police and protesters clashed," is so manipulative, it pisses me off all over again.

7. If only his speech is affected, and maybe reading/writing, he can do outpatient rehab.

6. Reporter's covering for the police action: "Olsen fractured his skull..."
instead of "Olsen's skull was fractured by..."

8. Now we know why they are serving "eviction notices".
Don't want a rally point for OWS Oakland.

The PTB have to shut it down before they gain a symbolic figure. Much like Bahrain tearing down the Pearl.
