Second Occupy Oakland Iraq war veteran injured after police clashes

Someday it would be nice not to have to get news about America from Great Britain, but for now (and, Thanks for Standing, Canada)....

 

"A second Iraq war veteran has suffered serious injuries after clashes between police and Occupy movement protesters in Oakland.

Kayvan Sabehgi, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, is in intensive care with a lacerated spleen. He says he was beaten by police close to the Occupy Oakland camp, but despite suffering agonising pain, did not reach hospital until 18 hours later.

Sabehgi, 32, is the second Iraq war veteran to be hospitalised following involvement in Oakland protests. Another protester, Scott Olsen, suffered a fractured skull on 25 October."

Ironically, Sabehgi was on his way home and wasn't participating at the time the police came after him.
