Some Oakland Cops Express Their Thuggish Nature

More charming behavior, again against a Vet, this time an Army Ranger. The usual narrative of patriotic military all in the service of the Right might start to unravel more if there is any kind of mobilization of ex-servicemen.

Starkly poses the question of fighting for democracy on our own streets vs “fighting for democracy” overseas.

Local San Francisco ABC affiliate KOFY News interviewed Sabehgi’s sister tonight, who said thatSabehgi lived near Frank Ogawa Plaza (the center of the Occupy protests), and was walking home Wednesday night away from violence when police stopped him. Sabehgi said that police ordered him to walk in another direction, and he simply asked “why?”

In response, according to Sabehgi’s sister, the police beat him mercilessly with batons.

Sabehgi was then kept in a holding cell for 18 hours. Despite begging to see a doctor, Sabehgi was refused medical assistance. Instead, according to Sabehgi, his jailors accused Sabehgi without any cause of being a heroin addict and alcoholic and – instead of providing medical help for his severe injuries – told him to stop taking heroin.
