Marines Outraged Over Occupy Wall Street Attack

(CNN) -- More Occupy Wall Street protests were scheduled in New York on Thursday, a day after demonstrators marched to support an Iraq war veteran who was hurt in California.

Hundreds packed the streets near Manhattan's Union Square on Wednesday in a march in support of veteran Scott Olsen. At least 10 people were arrested in clashes with officers, a New York police spokesman said.

Olsen suffered a skull fracture Tuesday night after allegedly being shot in the head with a police projectile in Oakland, California, according to Iraq Veterans Against the War.

The former Marine has become another rallying cry for the Occupy Wall Street protests spreading throughout the country.

This is a man who is fighting for your freedoms! Stand up and support him! Stop the Police Brutality!

Yes, Marines are very upset. Google for Scott Olson and you will see what I mean.

It's Olsen by the way. At least get his name right! Sheesh.

The point is that the Right can't smear this as being an all lefty demonstration. These are real men and women some of whom have already fought for this country in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now we must support him and put an end to police brutality that is happening all over the country.

I see no evidence in your article that the Marines are upset. It's my job to do your homework?

It's not a lefty demonstration because a former marine is in it? Huh?

Stop twisting my words you know exactly what I mean. This is a movement that consists of all kinds of people. Nothing to say about police brutality? You think they should be able to brain people whenever they want? Do your own homework :)
