Iraq War veteran Joshua Shepherd, a friend of the veteran injured by police at an “Occupy Oakland” protest, appeared Wednesday night on Countdown with Keith Olbermann.
Olsen, a two-time Iraq war veteran and member of Iraq Veterans Against the War, sustained a skull fracture in late October after being struck in the head by a teargas canister and has been rendered unable to speak.
Shepherd told Olbermann the incident created a sense of “collective rage” among veterans.
About 100 veterans marched from New York City’s Vietnam Veterans Plaza to the “Occupy Wall Street” protest in Zuccotti Park on Wednesday to show support for Olsen.
