Thoughts on Police Brutality video at Occupy Wall Street Times Sq.

Admittedly, some people chose to stand their grounds as the NYPD repeatedly told them to back off, but those who wanted to move really couldn’t. There was no space to get away. And these horses were pushed into the crowd… I didn’t understand and continue to not understand what the NYPD was trying to do.

Times Square on October 15.  Some serious footage.

Thoughts:

#1. Police Horses are still a thing?

#2. Police Horses should not be a thing. Poor horse (1:30).

#3. That is definately some unnecessary shoving of heads between 2:00-2:16.

#4. The police brutality seems to always be by the white shirt cops. Apparently, you get promoted in the NYPD by being a violent dick.

#5. Whatever happened to Tony Bologna? Mr. Pepper-spray-o-matic? Still under investigation, according to the Manhattan DA.

Consumer-created media is public accountability.  Use it.
