NYPD have started punching protesters as well:
For no goddamned reason.
We demand that Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly resigns.
We demand that this man is charged for maliciously spraying protesters and blue-collar police.
We demand jail time - for this man and others like him.
We demand that no blue-collar police is charged for the crimes of their supervisor.
We demand that Mayor Bloomberg address our General Assembly and apologize for what has occurred.
A message to blue-collar police:
Do not do what you are told. We are peaceful and you know this. We offer you coffee in the morning and water in the day. You always refuse and we know that's because they told you to.
Speak of the crimes of your supervisors. We will help you. We are expressing the same frustration that you feel. You are the 99 percent. Join us. Join our conversation.
To that end, I think Police who agree with the #OccupyWallSt protesters need to start heading down to Wall Street and arresting those in the NYPD who are being abusive, beligerant, and combative. There is no reason for the police to be instigating and/or initiating violence against peaceful protesters.
To the protesters: You are building a peaceful society. A peaceful society is made of peaceful people. Keep up the good work. Your refusal to take part in acts of violence shows the world the stark difference between yourselves and the hired thugs who are trying to keep Wall Street gentrified.
