Occupy Wall Street protestors were beaten by NYPD officers. Protestors being attacked by officers included a small female protestor. A male protestor who got away from the police attack said he was at a loss of words after seeing the police attacking protestors. The gentleman stated that police where telling protestors to cross the street but then were stopped and hit with batons when they tried to cross.
Yet again the police of New York City have resulted to extreme violence to deal with a non-violent protest. On The Other 99%'s live video stream you could see where the young man was hit with a baton on his elbow. The spot was red and the skin raised. How much more is America going to stand for? Has this country really become a police state? By the looks of the live video feeds coming out of New York City it is.
Occupy Wall Street has always been a peaceful, non-violent movement and the violence reported has always come from the police departments who are supposed to be protecting the citizens. They are hitting small women with batons and other protestors in the neck. The movement needs support and the police need to be brought to justice.
