Hundreds of 'Occupy Wall Street' protesters arrested - Oct. 2, 2011I see, so you're claiming the arrests were bogus, and were simply for "walking on the street". Can you provide evidence of these bogus arrests and use of pepper spray? And can I assume that there will be legal suits brought against the NYC Police Department because of them?
"Over 700 summonses and desk appearance tickets have been issued in connection with the demonstration on the Brooklyn Bridge ... after multiple warnings by police were given to protesters to stay on the pedestrian walkway," said Paul J. Browne, deputy commissioner for the New York City Police Department.
Browne said authorities had warned protesters they would be arrested if they occupied the roadway.
"Some complied and took the walkway without being arrested," he said.
I would agree with that statement. Maybe not the specific goals part. The whole point is anger at inequality and anger at our corporate/financial powers that be that have bought Washington and profited greatly while Americans have been suffering in the current economy.I'm stating that, when comparing the OWS to the Tea Party rallies of the past, the OWS are more violent (not I did NOT say they are all violent). I have also stated multiple times that OWS needs to focus their message and make it coherent and organized if they are to be taken seriously.
