Scott Olsen was back out Tuesday. The Iraq War veteran and Occupy activist suffered a head injury after being hit with a police projectile in Oakland in October 2011. He told Mother Jones that it took two and a half weeks before he could speak at all after the injury, and about a month "before I was comfortable speaking."
