Did anyone see the officer who shot Scott Olsen? I would like to talk with you

If anyone saw, or knows someone who saw the face of the officer who shot Scott Olsen, I would like to talk with you.  It would be good to ID the officer.  I want to help work up an image, for accountability purposes of the person who shot the tear gas cannister.  I heard on KPFA a man who said he saw the officer’s face and would like to speak with him or anyone else who witnessed who shot it.  Thanks – GO OCCUPY OAKLAND! – John 2724
