'Silver Circle' Predicted the Scott Olsen/Occupy Oakland Flashbang Tragedy

When "Silver Circle" director Pasha Roberts wanted to show out-of-control police state tactics in the film, he thought to include an incident in which security forces deployed flashbangs against bystanders at an outdoor protest. Little did he know at the time that real-life Oakland police would later unleash stun grenades on Occupy Oakland protesters, critically injuring Iraq War veteran Scott Olsen, who suffered a cracked skull when a flashbang exploded in his face.
