VIDEO: Oakland Occupier Shot by Less-Lethal Round
An Occupy Oakland videographer who says he wanted to film police response to the protests captured himself being struck by a non-lethal round fired by an officer.
Scott Campbell, 30, said, "I thought it would be a good idea, since I had a camera, to film the police. I just stood there."
An officer appears to pull out a weapon that shoots a bean bag or a rubber bullets and, well, shoots Campbell, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.

So when a fellow peace officer is down and the 99%er decides to protect and serve the ones who protect and serve, this makes no difference? http://on.fb.me/tNJb0Z Are you then saying that the LEO who was cheated out of their home by a corrupt bankster deserved to lose their home? And did you know that even though you may own your home, I can as an entrepreneur can legally kick you out of your home, raze your property and use your co-workers to gt you out? How so? http://bit.ly/wCrsQ, The conservative Supreme Court Justice's decision under Kelo vs. the City of New London Connecticut. And if you stand up to the earth-movers with your shotgun, you are now committing a felony.
The Occupiers know this. And by discouraging the Occupation, your league/Association/ Benevolent Society...union cannot do a thing.
The people you mock? will go to jail to make sure that your rights are protected. Are you willing to do the same? No? Then do me a favor and get out of your union. Leave the union and prove to me how self-sustainable you are without your rep against I.A. can't and won't do it, will you. Because the people you dislike, are making sure that you too are protected. As you too are the 99%

What in the hell are you smoking? That entire rant makes absolutely no sense.

No kidding...not even relevant to the story at all. I'm actually supportive of a PEACEFUL protest, and would like to see improvements in the way the country is run, but people like you sabotage the process by screaming "rabble rabble" without paying attention to the conversation.
