Oakland Police Strike Army Ranger With Nightsticks On His Back, Ribs, Shoulders and Hands, Lacerating His Spleen and Causing Internal Bleeding … Then Deny Him Medical Treatment for 18 Hours

Reuters notes:

A former U.S. Army Ranger and Occupy Oakland protester was in intensive care on Friday after a veterans group said he was beaten by police during clashes with demonstrators this week.

 

The veteran, identified as Kayvan Sabeghi, was the second former American serviceman during the past two weeks to be badly hurt in confrontations between anti-Wall Street protesters and police in Oakland.

 

The group Iraq Veterans Against the War said Sabeghi was detained during disturbances that erupted late on Wednesday in downtown Oakland and was charged with resisting arrest and remaining present at the place of a riot.

 

Highland General Hospital confirmed that Sabeghi was a patient in the intensive care unit there.

 

Brian Kelly, who co-owns a brew pub with Sabeghi, said his business partner served as an Army Ranger in Iraq and Afghanistan. He said Sabeghi told him he was arrested and beaten by a group of policemen as he was leaving the protest to go home.

 

“He told me he was in the hospital with a lacerated spleen and that the cops had jumped him,” Kelly said. “They put him in jail, and he told them he was injured, and they denied him medical treatment for about 18 hours.”

The Guardian reports:

Kayvan Sabehgi, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, is in intensive care with a lacerated spleen. He says he was beaten by police close to the Occupy Oakland camp, but despite suffering agonising pain, did not reach hospital until 18 hours later.

 

***

 

Sabehgi told the Guardian from hospital he was walking alone along 14th Street in central Oakland – away from the main area of clashes – when he was injured.

 

“There was a group of police in front of me,” he told the Guardian from his hospital bed. “They told me to move, but I was like: ‘Move to where?’ There was nowhere to move.

 

“Then they lined up in front of me. I was talking to one of them, saying ‘Why are you doing this?’ when one moved forward and hit me in my arm and legs and back with his baton. Then three or four cops tackled me and arrested me.”

 

Sabeghi … said he was handcuffed and placed in a police van for three hours before being taken to jail. By the time he got there he was in “unbelievable pain”.

 

***

 

Sabehgi was due to undergo surgery on Friday afternoon to repair his spleen, which would involve using a clot or patch to prevent internal bleeding.

 

***

 

Some protesters had set fire to a hastily assembled barrier at the corner of 16th Street and Telegraph, in a bid to prevent access to the occupied building, but police drove demonstrators away from 16th Street using tear gas, flashbang grenades, and non-lethal rounds.

 

Sabehgi said he had not been in the occupied building, and was walking away from the main area of trouble when he was injured.

 

He said he had his arms folded and was “totally peaceful” before being arrested.

Local San Francisco ABC affiliate KOFY News interviewed Sabehgi’s sister tonight, who said that Sabehgi 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.

There is apparently a videotape of the incident (KOFY noted that “police are reviewing video of the incident”).

Given the outcry over the unprovoked injury of Marine veteran Scott Olsen – which has caused veterans from all over the country to come out to support the protesters  – Sabehgi’s treatment by the police could generate even more support for the protests .

Off topic but the FCC/DHS/FEMA/IPAWS are getting together later this week to conduct the first ever nationwide coordinated test of the EAS.  Unlike the voluntary EAS tests that occur from time to time at the local level, this will be mandatory and simultaneous across all traditional media outlets excluding internet.  My guess is that a year from now (maybe two) another test will be conducted but that one will also include internet such that all ISPs will be required to participate broadcasting the EAS alert to all connected devices mobile, laptop etc  Moreover expect that electronic public displays will also be tied in to the EAS.

 

 do a  search on IPAWS EAS  DHS FCC etc.

Uh, I'm sorry but if you "Clash" with police expect to be beaten.

Re-read the piece, HE was not even involved in the clash.

He was a watcher.And according to him(as an Ex Ranger), I believe him first, he was leaving alone, when attacked.

IF this is true, ALL the Cops involved should lose their badges and jobs.

Uh, I'm sorry but if you "Clash" with police expect to be beaten. Now, a peaceful protest will not get you beaten in most cases and this might of been the case judging by recent stories concerning OWS Oakland. "Remember, if you don't want your ox to be gored you don't go down there playing all Matador. If you do, then expect the worst. I feel sorry for the Ranger but as a ex-service member I know you are trained to size up your surroundings and to place yourself in the safest and most advantageous position to succeed in your mission. Hopefully, in the end he feels that it was all worth it and that he simply was more than just a pawn.

You are right

If you clash with police, expect to be beat.

Can you please justify the act of denying medical treatment by more than one member of the OPD? By the jailer? Any person who has any violent confrontation with law enforcement should be examined, agree?

Absolutely, Having felt the brunt of Law Enforcement's wrath in my youth. I agree that inadequate medical care is wrong regardless yet, with all the confusion and the influx of people entering the jail system and shorthanded due to budget cuts, one can make the case that they were overwhelmed by the sheer volume of people with many probably demanding attention for their cases and using up unnecessary time that could of been used to properly examine the ex-soldier.

Consequences can be a bitch regardless of which side your on. I pray that he will completely recover from his injuries. I would suggest to him that next time forget protesting in downtown's and to take the protest where it really belongs, At the feet of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. and the Federal Reserve. These are the places where their protest really belongs.

Bullshit

They had time.

Do you think they would have let an OPD officer wait that long for medical attention because of the sheer volume of people..........?

They were not prepared?

Bring riot gear, but no medical plans? BS!

They had medical contingencies if an officer was hurt.

Guerilla warfare would be almost impossible to control & defeat in America.  The civillian population is amazinly well armed, and not just with traditional hand guns and basic hunting rifles.  People have night vision, Electronic gadgets & gizmos, explosives, and all kinds of survival gear.  Our military is an incredible fighting force, but even the best we have can't defeat a bunch of rag-tag, sandal-clad, peasants who decide to resist.

If your taking a beating to the point you need hospitalization then you have the right to defend your self.  A defensive technique that minimizes the threat of accidently killing the opponent is a well place sidekick to the knee to tear the supporting ligaments.  If everyone implemented this systemically in mass as a group, then the incompetent unpatriotic  police management would have to modify their operating protocols to prevent lost time injuries from jeapordizing their minimum staff level requirements. You will have to pay price by taking a more severe beating; but, this is premised on the them beating you unprovoked to the point of needing hospitalization. To quote Rambo, "They drew first blood sir". The one one knee strike training program should be started now. The founding fathers gave us our 2nd amendment rights to protect our 1st amendment rights.  Arm yourself, learn the one knee strike techique today and enable your self to make a sacrifice for your country.

Those police who near beat this man to death have no defence at law since this was not police work but simply a gang attack on a defensless man who was offering no risk to them or any other.

These police should be prosecuted and the ring leaders given 10 years in an anus bashing prison.

It looks like the bankers are getting some groups of the Oakland police force to provoke a violent response to give them excuse to crack down harder and clear the streets, and to spill more blood.

I have little doubt that the over the top violence by some corrupt elements in the Oakland police is instidgated and paid for by TPTB. You would hope the straight members of the Oakland police force will take these corrupt members out the back of the wood shed and rupture their spleens.

 

Seems they will need to relocate Afgahn troops to Oakland to protect the American people. Who are the terrorists? Not foreigners, not local civilians, but the bankster police.

NOTE: this 'occupy' movement in Oz has been totally infiltrated by the extreme-leftie do-nothing-productive parasitic Joo-fag clique, who have somehow AGAIN nominated themselves as semi-formal 'occupy' representatives and spokespeople, within the local MSM bullshit machine... Isn't it funny how this always seems to happen, whenever any real protests starts to gain steam? ... It always seems to lead to the general population taking one look at these vile fucks and getting thoroughly turned off and wanting nothing to do with them ... one might even suggest that this is the whole aim of their participation, and constantly insinuating themselves into the centre of all things remotely social-interest-ish and political protest-ish ... or else, maybe they just really care a lot? Nope, they are there to divide the people, and to dissipate and derail any such movement.

Don't let them get away with that crap again, and again, and again. Tell them to shut-it, and get out of the way ... or else. They are not there to help. They are there for one thing only, to make the whole movement look like a pathetic and stupid circus full of absurd weirdos, in order to dissuade the general population from taking it seriously, and then hearing the real message, and the call to a just protest, and to join-in in really big numbers. That's why the MSM wish to give these disgusting freaks all the air-time, and wants to treat them as if they are semi-official 'representatives' of the 'occupy' 99%-ers.

Watch out for them, they are easy to spot, and shut them down - it's no accident that they are there and come to the fore, and the media seeks to discredit other voices - they're wolves in sheep's clothing.

A bay area rapid transit cop killed a man with his gun while the victim was face down and unarmed

He got two years

Cold blooded murder

Two years

We sure sent a message to the cops. ( we will cover your ass)
And to the people ( if you want justice for the cops, be prepared to act as cop, jury and executioner, because the system is there to protect THEM!)

The Oakland police force (and any P.D.) is a reflection of the citizens they serve.

Oakland is a city of ne'er do wells, malcontents and couldnt make it in the big city, big city types.  And lots of people with their hands permanently extended who have learned how to game the system.  These same people are easily co-opted by the criminal radical left.

So the Oakland PD has to resort to harsher tactics to control these people.  So be it.

Rangers, Seals, Green Berets and 'other' assorted specially trained SOG members exist for guerilla warfare.  One full A-Team that decided to go rouge on any police department would be lethal, and could cause long-term fear and wreck havoc against a poorly trained, ill-prepared police force.  The police must operate in public view, while, any good guerilla operates in the shadows, carefully selecting tagets with maximum damage in mind.

Oakland police better pray that 8-12 random SOG members don't decide to come together and 'make a point' on their turf.
