Add comment on:Scott Olsen and NLG SF Demand Oakland Police Stop Using Less Lethal Weapons At Protests
Scott Olsen's skull was shattered and part of his brain destroyed when an OPD officer shot him in the head with a Specialty Impact Munition (SIM) at a 2011 Occupy Oakland demonstration. As he lay critically injured on the pavement, an OPD officer threw a CS Blast grenade onto him — a teargas device that explodes with a flash of light and loud bang. A new petition seeks to compel Oakland's Mayor Jean Quan and the City Council to ban the use of these weapons.
