Wall Street protests escalate on 8th day – VIDEO


Occupy Wall Street Protest Escalates On Eighth Day (VIDEO).

The protests have continued, perhaps smaller in numbers and apparently still leaderless.

NYPD exhibiting what I consider an unjustified heavy hand on the  loud but peaceful protesters. They – the police – need far more training in dealing with these with these type of disturbances and very clear guidelines on how to act. Officers appear to act on their own whim without any effective command.

The police seem as disorganized as the protesters are.

Most of the tri-state media is oblivious to these events. The New York Times only has an editorial deriding the protesters:

The Washington Post reproduces the Associated Press report:

I have not seen any mention of the protest in New Jersey media I have looked at.
