It wasn't until now that we found out just how badly injured the Officer was.
On Friday Officer Curtis Brown was give the Portland Police Star, designating his severe injury in the line of duty. According to the Zero (here) he actually limped to across the state to receive the award.
The douche who was arrested for the attack was eventually let go due to lack of evidence. Although he was fingered by protesters at the time of the attack and arrested, apparently there were just no witnesses willing to come forward and testify. Imagine that.
I've waited all weekend to post this. I've waited for my seething to abate. The Occupy Dilettantes and the idiots in power who indulged these children deserve public excoriation. Again. And the Occupiers deserve to have the book thrown at them in their court cases. Any judge who goes easy on these anarchists looking past their violent lawbreaking willfully ignores what really happened there and should be defrocked.
