Here’s the Army Ranger the Oakland Police Brutally Attacked

Video Emerges of Oakland Police Attacking Army Ranger

Video has emerged of a portion of the confrontation between Oakland Police and Army Ranger Kayvan Sabeghi which ended with a ruptured spleen, internal bleeding and multiple other injuries.

Here are stills captured from the video shot by KTVU:

Sabeghi was wearing shorts and light, casual shoes (hardly riot clothing):

Sabeghi is an entrepreneur … he owns a local brewery (hardly the type to riot).

He was acting totally peacefully, and he told the police he was a veteran.

Here is the must-watch video of a portion of the incident (it shows police surrounding Sabeghi and dogpiling on him, but it doesn’t show the baton strikes which ruptured his spleen).

    Hopefully, my useage of expletives will be forgiven in this posting.


    We are LEGION.
    We have done our damndest, but still, the opressing powers will not let up. WE CANNOT FORGIVE THIS.
    Peaceful demonstrations (‘redress of grievences’, as guaranteed in the Constitution For The United States) have been met with VIOLENCE and BODILY HARM by those who claim to be ‘protecting’ the Constitution.
    I, for one, shall NOT ‘FALL BACK’ any more.

    For GOD’S SAKE; they attack VETERANS of wars which were promulgated by the BANKING CARTELS…THEY EAT THEIR YOUNG!
    320 people who worked for MARSH and MCLENNAN died in the attacks of 9/11…they don’t CARE!

    WE ARE THE 99%.

      War is a racket. (Brig Gen Smedley Butler)

      It may seem odd for me, a military man to adopt such a comparison. Truthfulness compels me to. I spent thirty- three years and four months in active military service as a member of this country’s most agile military force, the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General. And during that period, I spent most of my time being a high class muscle- man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.
      I suspected I was just part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it. Like all the members of the military profession, I never had a thought of my own until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military service.
      I helped make Mexico, especially Tampico, safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefits of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912 (where have I heard that name before?). I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested.
      During those years, I had, as the boys in the back room would say, a swell racket. Looking back on it, I feel that I could have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents. . . .

    The man was clearly assaulted by police in a abusive manner.

    It is time to put the corrupt abusive police in it’s place as true American Patriots should strike back when this occurs . think about it 5,000 plus protestors against 1,000 police officers or gestapo goons as I call them would run like scared rabbits if they were to face patriots that turn on them to defend themselves.

  • Robert A. Vine, Vietnam War Vet

    This is worse treatment than we got from the civilians when we came back from Nam. Now, his country that he served with honor, his country’s bully-punk cops, most of whom have never served in the military anymore, beat him so severely his spleen was lacerated, then he was denied treatment and furthermore had to undergo emergency surgery when he made bail, his country’s government crapped on him when he walked into the street and spoke his mind. Veterans why are we taking this crap? Active military why are you continuing to serve a government that craps on you while you serve then replaces you with highly paid facist mercernaries when they are done with you? Why do you serve a government which has long ago abandoned our Constitution. A government that when you come back the VA takes a crap on you again. Do what the Americal troops did. Refuse to fight for the banksters!!!!! We need to end these wars fought with your blood for the banksters profits.

    Welcome to Obama’s Change!!!!

  • Jack Ruby

    The Estabishment hire attack dog police to repress the masses.

    These are rabid and demented officers that love to practice in brutality and excessive force.

    Why was the Oakland PD and so many other police departments sent to Israel for ‘crowd control training’ at US taxpayer expense? What did they learn there, that they couldn’t have learned in the U.S.? Are we ll Palestinians now?

  • Mimi

    Wow, this is horrifying. Any of those cops able to go through the training this man did? I think not. Thankx for the info, total media blackout of this on the East Coast.

  • The thing about being the 99% is, you don’t NEED to be violent, because you ARE the majority.

  • This is outrageous! You the people are pying thugs to beat you up…Come on…there is something terribly wrong here. Stop paying them, get out of their system, boycott the system. Withdraw your support for a corrupt govt gone wild and out of control. Unite in peaceful resistance! Don`t Buy (from corporations), don`t comply (with their fraudulent system), ask why they are acting like that!


  • Freethinker

    I question if this person was an agent provacateur, actually. Why the face scarf?

  • Charles Martel aka The Hammer

    They are no different than the Taliban or AQI, just another group of terrorist thugs that must be stopped. In fact they are far worse.

  • Frank

    When will the mayor of this extension of Africa put a stop to police brutality?
    And when will these idiots OWS get an education? Big law suit going to happen.
    These cops are no better then Hitlers own SS. He wasn’t involved with the OWS and yet, the SS stepped on him.

  • walt

    Isn’t it feasible to call in the ones who protect the civilians against all enemies both foreign and domestic?
    Does the US military see that civilians need their protection?
    Does the US military take oaths to Obama or America(ns).?

  • Calvin Klein

    Best way to kill the snake is to start with the head

  • crazyhorse

    Power to the people!! the thugs in uniform need sorting out,these so called men have no honour
    they beat up men and women with sticks,rubber bullets and tear gas,if the peaceful protestors
    fight back will they run or will they use live rounds?this is the same kind of tactics used by the
    SS in germany in the 30,s and 40,s.What will they do when ordered to shoot to kill their own?
    “sorry mom but orders are orders”

  • Satyr Blue

    As a Vet and american patriot I implore our current military and HONEST law enforcement officials to follow your oaths… The ones you took in service to the citizens of America. Will you stand by and watch your brothers be brutalized and imprisoned for standing up for their constitutional rights. This ranger did not provide any form of violent confrontation. Still he was beaten and refused medical treatment. Send this video to our brothers serving overseas so they can see the truth… how will they be treated when they get home? When do we stand UNITED? Where are the active duty service men and women going to step up? Wear your uniforms with pride and stand against this domestic threat to our freedom. I am not promoting violent revolution by active service members… only that they stand with us in non-violent protest to the corporate run government. Stand with us against the destruction of our constitutional rights and human rights. STAND with us against a government corrupt and abusive of the powers that are supposed to protect its citizens.

  • Andreas Strassmier

    This is exactly what the new American Century that was unveiled during the staged 9/11 attacks but which was planned long before. The protestor is afforded no more rights than an invaded Iraqui that has the temerity to stand up to a house invasion. Why do you think that Israel now trains the police departments of the US cities? It’s all coordinated and with Homeland Security an oxymoron if ever they monitor down to the real time where you are on the net, who you associate with and your financial tracks. Whatever you call it-IT”S SICK WRONG AND MUST BE STOPPED.
    I know from personal experience from researching the bio-warfare they plan to unleash at the time of the next wars. I was threatened, visited by spooks, and also told that there was a case against me all prepared. This is how they operate. Not everyone is on board in gov but a lot are and you’d be suprised how deep the rabbit hole goes.

  • Reyes R. Tellez

    I think military units need to stop training these punk ass cops. Fucking DELTA training punk ass FBI HRT whom by the way went out of the country to snatch up some puke terrorist. Why the fuck are they allowed to go out the country and do a military operation? Law Enforcement are civilians not military so why the fuck are they being trained in military training. Some pig in AZ who was part of the SWAT who killed a former Marine while he woke up thinking there was a home invasion in progress said to the press that they the SWAT are operators and went rambling off talking typical cop bullshit. So when the fuck do police think they’re special operations even if they are SWAT which basically a Infantry could wipe them clean off the face of this earth if it ever went to that.
