Footage of Scott Olsen Being Shot by Police at Occupy Oakland


This footage is proof that Scott Olsen was shot in the face by police without provocation during the Occupy Oakland march on Tuesday, October 25.  The moment leading up to the shooting, Olsen was standing completely still.  He was then hit in the head with a tear gas canister, which is potentially fatal.  Also, no rocks or bottles were thrown before Olsen was shot, contrary to Police statements.  Two angles of footage confirm this.
