In America, On the Brooklyn Bridge, the NYPD asserts itself with approx. 700 arrests of peaceful protestors.

And did this make YOUR evening NEWS? If not, ask why not.

It did get prompt headline coverage by the BBC, Reuters and Al Jazeera.

    I am confused why exactly did they arrest those people, it seemed completely random.

      Meg! Well, the protestors are claiming entrapment by the police because the NYPD basically lead them in that direction. This was only part of a larger group of protestors. The initial charges had something to do with blocking traffic in essential. LOL.

    i’m glad you posted this. It’s hard to ell how the police are deciding who to arrest.

      Hi Helen, well they just kept taking people out and arresting them until they arrested EVERYONE. This was very strange to watch Live via teh Occupy Wall STreet’s Media Team’s livestream. People were calling Bloomberg, the mayor of NYC, to tell him thousands were watching what was happeing. It was insane.

    Americans have forgotten how violent our pararmilitary can be…I fear for the lives and welfare of demonstrators. 😦

      Hey Charles. You’re right. When news does not cover events and police actions then we don’t know what’s going on and we forget just how violent people can be towards each other. When we don’t SEE the war and the toll it takes on civilians we are ignorant of the pain and suffering military people are TRAINED to inflict on others.
      Apparently NYPD did not take too kindly to the rally/march on One Police Plaza on Friday to denounce police brutality. The police were downright stoic there. But Saturday’s actions show what they think of what was said on Friday.
      peace
