Scott Olsen, a Marine and Iraq War veteran from Onalaska, Wis., was hurt during an Occupy Wall Street protest in Oakland when a projectile fractured his skull. Fellow veterans and others are blaming police, according to the Associated Press.
A witness nearby captured video of the incident:
"I think now the people involved with Occupy Wall Street are saying, ‘Here is our poster child,'" Olsen's uncle tells the La Crosse Tribune.
Olsen works as a computer systems analyst in California. He is hospitalized and in fair condition.
