4. I Am So Pissed
Please get better, Little Brother. JFC! 24 years of age! I am so ashamed that your own country fucked you up after you did what so few would do over there in the badlands. I don't have the words. I am so angry.

I am not Catholic, but my wife is. I will light a candle to the Virgin until you are out of danger. I can't believe this shit is happening here.

Semper Fi

I will give to Occupy Marines on your behalf.

Former Corporal to Captain

48. Very good words
never served in the military, I had my problems, but I sure supported the troops and I can't understand even after the protests in the 60's and 70's the cops haven't learned much. They are not above the law.

Great grandpa was in the military , both of my grandparents were in WWII in some form. One uncle came back bad from Vietnam. Another came close to shipping to the frontlines but was transferred at the last minute. (this was back during the draft he's more like me) Odd.

Dad was in the National Guard. ie before they started sending out National Guard internationally. :( We know friends and family over there. But come back and get shot in a peaceful protest (throwing plastic water bottles if that actually happened ) didn't require such overkill. ie yeah Kent State. 4 dead and 60-70 shots at protesters

And going to the VA for grandpa for 2 years until he died in 2008... plenty of good vets there (men women) because grandma was married to one, she's allowed to be there. Had to move her when the one in Charlotte/Iowa Falls closed (Nursing Home)

Wish Scott the best

21. When we know what Scott's bill is, we could all send duplicate bills to
the Oakland Pd. Imagine them getting thousands of bill's in the mail. Maybe they won't pay it, but it will certainly remind them of what they have done to one of our brave soldiers. Thank you Scott for you service to this country :applause:

32. Is his Tri-care from the military still in effect?
It used to be that veterans were guaranteed free health care for life. I am sure that has been stopped. Fucking pig bastards. Piggies at the trough. Excuse me, I don't usually go this far in my anger and hatred.

37. Free health care for life is another broken government promise.
TRICARE FOR LIFE is for retirees. If he was not disabled before he left active duty, he's probably not eligible for TRICARE, and even if he is, he still would have to pay a copay. Free medical for life was discontinued long before I retired in '91. A group of vets sued and were told that the government didn't have to honor it contracts with the military. I lost all faith in the government after that.

40. You get free VA care if you have disability. Tricare is for retirees.
VA is pretty good though, you can also get discounted rates through them, so it's better than nothing, and a hell of a lot better than what most people in the rest of the country have.

31. I like the part about medals being meaningless.
Reminds me of Eric Bogel's songs. Read Bogel on Wikipedia and Youtube a couple of his anti-war songs if you don't know who he is.

and nearly lost his life.

Scott you are a hero to all of us who believe in democracy and freedom and will not see it taken away from us by a bunch of greedy obscenely criminal fascists.

You have made history.

You have become one with all the great men of the history of democracy and of this country who stood proud to risk life and limb to fight for and to write and to protect our constitution that so brilliantly guarantees freedom to mankind.

OWS is doing nothing less than standing guard over our constitution while many still sleep...standing guard with their lives...and all of them are making history.

And thank you Anon. We, enjoined, are fighting for nothing less than freedom from tyranny...fighting the forces of fascism always lurking in the darkness; waiting for any chance to take it and everything else, away from us.

Just over a month ago it looked as if they'd won and their theft would be swept under the rug of history.

And along came OWS, egged on by folks like KO, Rachel and others who willed them into being.

OWS is a faint light at the end of a long dark tunnel that many cannot yet see, but blinding in its brilliance to some of us, becoming brighter each minute by shooting stars like Scott Olson.

What this country owes you and OWS; still standing guard while your broken body is repaired; cannot be measured.
