Kayvan Sabehgi, 32, a former Army ranger who served two tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, is in intensive care with a ruptured spleen after being beaten with batons by police while he was walking home from an Occupy Oakland protest. After being arrested, he was left in agonizing pain for 18 hours before getting medical help. The Police and Sheriff's Department are investigating. Goddamn: you think?
