    For anyone that is interested, this looks like a decent quality video of the event unfolding.

    The really sad thing is, as I watch the interviews with protesters it becomes clear they are all 100% brainwashed and misinformed getting all the facts wrong and they miss the big picture.

    For one thing I saw one of this idiots claim that 1% of the rich control 46% of the wealth.

    WRONG,

    The wealthiest 1 percent of the population earn 19 per*cent of the income but pay 37 percent of the income tax. The top 10 percent pay 68 percent of the tab. Meanwhile, the bottom 50 percent—those below the median income level—now earn 13 percent of the income but pay just 3 percent of the taxes.

    These fools don't seem to understand that the wealthy crate the majority of the jobs.

    The protesters say they are fashioning there protest after Muslim Spring.

    Well bad news because many of those uprisings ended in serious violence and the loss of life.

    These crazies need to stop listening to Obama's push for class warfare he could lead them into something they cannot win.

    I think when the break the law they need serious jail time, not just a slap on the limp wrist fine.

    Don't think for one minute that I deel this way because I am somehow rich. That is almost funny. I feel this way because the wackos can have their own opinion but they cannot have their own facts.

    They distort everything and what they don't distort they either get wrong, just make it up, or repeat something some other dumb-ass like Obama said.
    You have confused wealth with income.

    Re: More than 700 arrested in Wall Street protest

    Here is proof that the police led the protestors onto the Brooklyn Bridge. For the first three minutes, a row of police stand in front of the protestors, and the protesters do NOT walk onto the bridge. If you look to the sides, you can see many protestors heading to the walkway on the side of the bridge. At about 3:35, the cops turn around and lead the protestors onto the bridges roadway. If the cops had stayed put, the protesters would not have walked onto the bridge

    This may take longer to load than some videos, because it's in the MOV format:

    Most of the people posting about the protestors being at fault here haven't actually been at a demonstration with police crackdowns or they wouldn't be saying what they are.

    Here's another video showing the police leading the protesters as they walk on the roadway

    Re: More than 700 arrested in Wall Street protest

    That is a pretty good quality video of what seems to be the beginning sangha, TY for posting it. http://glassbeadcollective.org/walls...e3_h264_sd.mov

    IMO the protesters seem to be chanting take the bridge shortly before a few people in the front of the crowd walk towards the police at which point the police seem to retreat rather than fight the potential push of the crowd which probably would have created more of a mess.

    It seems everyone handled things calmly for the most part and it surely could have turned out worse.

    The protesters are probably more than likely willing to be charged with a misdemeanor in order to prove their point or gain attention.

    From the video you posted IMO the protesters wanted to occupy the bridge.

    These folks have no realistic goals or strategy.

    Do they also not have jobs? Sure looks that way.

    LOL yes the police are the victims here! It would've created much more of a mess rounding up hundreds of protestors off the bridge instead of on!
