Iraq Vet Crushed By Police Horse at Presidential Debate

Last Wednesday [Oct. 15th 2008], while presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain debated domestic policy issues in front of a live television audience at the Long Island campus of Hofstra University, Nassau county police faced off with a few hundred spirited but peaceful demonstrators. And using excessive force, police — on horses and in full riot gear — trampled several people including Iraq vet Nick Morgan.
