And the Oakland Police keep beating up Iraqi War vets.
The second Iraq war veteran hospitalized after a confrontation at an Occupy Oakland protest wasn't participating in the demonstration when he was injured and arrested, a friend and colleague said Saturday.
A friend said Sabeghi asked for medical attention several times from a jail cell and an ambulance came more than three hours after another friend posted his bail. An official who answered the phone at an Alameda County Sheriff's Office jail could confirm only that Sabeghi had been arrested and released on bail.
Goodstal said Sabeghi took part in an Occupy Oakland march to the city's port Wednesday but left when it was over.
"After that, he went out with his friend and had dinner," she said.
When dinner was over, Sabeghi decided to call it a night because he had to work Thursday. While walking home in west Oakland sometime late Wednesday or early Thursday he encountered a line of police at the protest who wouldn't let him through.
Goodstal said Sabeghi told her he tried to explain his situation and officers began hitting him with batons.
A Hospital spokesman said Sabeghi was in fair condition Saturday but released no further details. Goodstal said Sabeghi was in the intensive care unit and had to undergo surgery for a lacerated spleen.
OWS member who spoke up for movement in Ft Collins Co arrested for $10M arson. More criminal behavior from so called protesters.
Maybe the apologist can blame this on the oakland police too.
A Fort Collins man has been arrested as a suspect in a $10 million fire along Mason Street in downtown Fort Collins.
Gilmore appears to be the same person who recently appeared before the Fort Collins City Council to ask that Occupy Fort Collins protesters be left alone. He was arrested for suspicion of first-degree arson, burglary and criminal mischief in the blaze that destroyed a condominium complex under construction and damaged a complex next door.
"Occupy members in Fort Collins are being cheated by banks, who like the 5-year-old, always win, Gilmore said, because the "rules are changing all the time."
"Some guys play in all-star games, some guys don't. I don't know who picks all those all-star teams. In all honesty, I don't know who picks the combine, for that matter," Belichick said. "How does (Miami-Ohio offensive lineman Brandon) Brooks not get invited to the combine? How did Vollmer not get invited to the combine? I don't know. We can't really worry about that. We just have to try to evaluate them the best we can."

What George Soros funded boards does Gerard sit on? I'm only finding that info on right wing sites, and none of them offer specifics. What do the salaries of a handful of other union officials have to do with your point? Are you saying Leo Gerard earns an enormous salary? Or are you simply using guilt by association? Do you only object to big salaries for union leaders, but not shareholder leaders, aka, CEOs and other executives? What do you think unions should do about jobs being sent overseas? I'm not sure it's a good idea to block bridges and tunnels, but the labor movement has always fought against the vested interests often by civil disobedience, and because of that we have weekends off, minimum wage, worker safety, social security, child labor laws, 40 hour work week, and so on. I don't want the movement to get violent, but I'd like to see both parties do more to protect American jobs. I guess, Icy, that's where we disagree. You're on the side of old money, big banks, and investment firms, apparently.
At any rate, right now all we're seeing in the birth of a movement. It's difficult to say in what direction it will evolve. In my opinion, it needs to coalesce around a few themes in order to be effective. One of them might be protecting American jobs. That would be a good broad theme that would win the support of a lot of working people.
