Marine Injured at Occupy Oakland Likely Injured by Protesters

Remember that anti-Semitic, Marine-hating, Marine veteran and IVAW member who suffered a critical head injury on October 25th at the Occupy Oakland protests? His name is Scott Olsen and he became an instant vehicle for left wing exploitation. He provided the perfect opportunity, or so the lefties thought, to portray police as bloodthirsty villains who couldn't control their urge to whoop up on protesters, who refused to obey police orders to leave the area by the way. The narrative was set. Olsen was the victim of a nearly fatal attack from police, who shot him in the head with a projectile.

Uh, not so fast. It's looking increasingly like Olsen was hit in the hit with a projectile hurled by a supposed ally.

Via San Francisco Examiner:
Protesters identified the three deputies based on preraid video that showed them from a closer and less chaotic standpoint — near enough to make their nametags visible.

The head of the union that represents sheriff’s deputies said activists circulated one deputy’s home address online. The union has requested it be removed.

The Sheriff’s Department said an internal investigation unit is reviewing the incident, but it’s unlikely the identified deputies caused Olsen’s injury. Spokeswoman Eileen Hirst said 35 of the 37 Sheriff’s Department personnel on site for the raid were not carrying projectiles, and the two who were equipped with them did not fire.

Hirst also said the department has a policy against deputies using weapons for which they are not trained, or borrowing weapons from other law enforcement during a raid situation.
So, not only are the police likely innocent but some despicable left wing whacko decided to post the address of one of the officers' thought to have been involved, who is also, more than likely innocent.

I'll say it until I'm blue in the face, anyone of these protesters asked for something bad to happen to them when they decided not to obey police by leaving the area. For some reason, that seems to be lost on the mainstream media, which continues to push the narrative that the police overreacted.

We already know protesters were in fact, hurling projectiles:
