Justice Department Refuses To Investigate Police Brutality

After Scott Olsen, a two-tour Iraq war veteran, suffered a skull fracture Tuesday when police shot Occupy Oakland protestors with rubber bullets and threw flash bang and tear gas grenades at them, you might think that the Justice Department would investigate.

After all, the Justice Department has the power and responsibility to investigate state and local police violations of Americansí constitutional rights.

Sorry, Scott Olsen. Sorry, Occupy. No such luck.

The Obama Justice Department has not opened an investigation, spokeswoman Xochitl Hinojosa told Wired.

Thatís despite Oakland having a long history of abusing protestors. Just last month, a federal judge hinted that he would take over the department for failing to rein in rogue policing practices identified in a consent decree from 2003 that the department has failed to obey. The National Lawyers Guild contends police violated that order again Tuesday.

Oaklandís paramilitary response was no accident.

This is bigger than just Oakland. The crackdowns on Occupy Movements must be stopped. Obama needs to remember who put him in office and recognize that we can just as soon take him out as well. Obama still has my vote but he needs to answer to us now.

:D All I know is when he was supposedly pushing his jobs bill he flew down to Orlando for the day to raise money at a couple of parties. Sounded like Tiger Woods.  ::) ::)
