OAKLAND -- An armed forces veteran was in the intensive care unit of Highland Hospital after suffering serious injuries that he said were caused by a confrontation with police during this week's Occupy Oakland protests.
Kayvan Sabehgi was among the 103 people arrested early Thursday after a day of peaceful protests turned violent. He was arrested for remaining at the scene of a riot and resisting arrest, police said.
Sabehgi told members of Iraq Veterans Against the War that he was beaten by police with nightsticks on his hands, shoulders, ribs and back. He suffered internal injuries, including a lacerated spleen, he told the group.
Oakland police are investigating the allegations, said spokeswoman Johnna Watson.

What’s the matter with these cops? Don’t they know they aren’t supposed to hurt the little “armed forces veterans” even if the are trying to burn the place down?
Congratulations, Mayor Quan and City Council.
No dead .. yet.
but a lot of tension and hostility is still bubbling below the surface,, stay the course.
You’ll get your immortalization of the cause yet.. even get to have pics of you at the funeral services empathizing with the ‘cause’ , I bet.. and the inquests that will likely follow.. oh yeah, lots of pics.
He chose his side.
They’ll drag Neil Young out of retirement to perform “One Hurt in Oakland”.
Veteran or no, I have zero sympathy for these scumbags.
A quick search shows little but the almost identical information about this guy. No other details, just three identifiers, that he was in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Veterans Against the War.
Saying someone is a veteran is meaningless unless they are identified by branch, and possibly unit. Rank is a big plus as well.
We watched their antics in silent disgust. Then we moved on. As we were walking along, I said: “I'd wish for one thing — a ground-to-air radio talking to two A-6E Intruders loaded with 250-pound Snake Eye retarded bombs and napalm. I'd give these bastards and bitches the experience of their worthless lives.” We agreed it would be interesting to watch.
We have found out that the “Marine” injured was dishonorably discharged for using cocaine, and owned a site “ihatethemarines.com
Guess they needed another poster boy.
Scroll down. Promotion list to E5/E6 in 2007
Not unusual for the Left to promote fake veterans so it's only prudent to confirm everyone they claim to be an "armed forces veteran".
Rule Two: Don't stand next to folks who are violating Rule One.
Yeah, sucks to be stupid.
Anyone find it odd that the ONLY (supposedly) seriously injured Occuoy protestors/rioters are “veterans?” Something is hinky.
Infantry E-5 in 2007. Further information is that Sabeghi is a Shiite-Persian name found in both Iran and the UAE. Kevyan or Kavyan is a popular Persian boy’s name.
Yeah, I ran across a Sabeghi dot ir website. Didn’t want to touch it without firing up Linux though :)
