What ever happened to that Oakland man who was seriously injured by riot police during the Occupy movement?

What happened to that man who was shot in the head with a tear gas canister by riot police when he was protesting a few years ago? I think he was an army veteran too. So what happened? Did he get better, did he get compensation, did the cops get introuble, did he recover? Why hasn't the news reported on his story or what happened afterward? I haven't seen it since then, and I'm in Los Angeles.

    Scott Olsen. It's on video, it happened. Oakland Police SWAT admitted they did it. He lived, he's fine. Nothing happened in terms of punishment or compensation. Why did the news not care? Good question. He's far from the only protester shot or injured by cops and totally ignored.

    Ask the mainstream media---they buried the story like good Leftists.
