Wall Street Occupier tackles a police officer during a march towards Wall Street in NY, on Friday. (here)
This is the Democrats' movement, embraced by Obama and Pelosi. Make sure you get the word out: the media is PR pimping this overthrow.
The cops jumped the HIV positive protester after he threw liquid at them.
A video posted online showed a police officer punching a protester in the side of the head on a crowded street. Police said the altercation occurred after the man tried to elbow the officer in the face and other people in the crowd jumped on the officer, who was sprayed with a liquid coming from the man’s direction. Police said the man, who escaped and is wanted for attempted assault on an officer, later said in an online interview he’s HIV positive and the officer should be tested medically.
A man who identified himself as the protester, Felix Rivera-Pitre, said in a statement posted online that he didn’t provoke the officer. “I was just doing what everyone else was doing in the march,” he said. “It felt like he was taking his frustrations out on me.”
"Occupy Citibank" -- 20 arrested.
protesters donned suits and got fresh new haircuts to march on banks in advance of boisterous rallies in Washington Square Park and Times Square today, but over 20 were arrested when a shouting mob invaded a CitiBank to close their accounts.
The group claimed 23 demonstrators were locked inside a LaGuardia Place CitiBank and arrested, after a shouting mob entered the bank just shortly after 2 p.m.
“[The protesters] all went in a big flash mob to close their accounts," said Adrielle Slaugh,a 24-year-old office manager who saw the clash. "There were about 30 of them. They were screaming and chanting while they were going in. Security told them to leave, but they didn’t. They stood in a group chanting things to the tellers. There were locked in, and then they were taken away.”
