Round two of Police violence in Oakland

Police in Oakland have yet again turned violent against the peaceful protesters of Occupy Oakland. Video has surfaced of a police officer throwing a flash grenade at a group of protester who rushed to assist an injured protester. The flash grenade left a Iraq veteran Scott Olsen hospitalized. A new poll shows that 43 percent of Americans support the movement and many more are expected to support the movement after the incident in Oakland. Joshua Holland, a senior writer and editor at Alternet, gives us his thoughts on the police behavior.
