AlterNet's Joshua Holland on Olbermann: Police Attacks on Protesters Are Only Making the Movement Grow Bigger

AlterNet's Joshua Holland was on Countdown With Keith Olbermannlast night to discuss Scott Olsen, the veteran and protester whose skull was fractured by Oakland police on Tuesday, and other police attacks on the Occupy movement. Holland notes, "These aggressive police actions I think have the opposite of their desired effect. [The police] may think that this is going to dissuade people from coming out and exercising their free speech rights, but it is the opposite. Every time I go down there I see bigger crowds than the time before."
