New York's Not So Finest: Photos Video Capture NYPD Thuggery And Overreaction At Occupy Wall Street Protests

Over 80 protesters associated with the ongoing Occupy Wall Street protests were arrested today in New York. Many photos of the NYPD thuggery can be found on flickr. The protesters were taking part in a non-violent march from their Zucotti Park encampment near Wall Street to Union Square Park when the police went on an arresting rampage. Independent news reports and video uploaded to YouTube indicate a number of incidents were it appears excessive force was employed on protesters by police. The grandmother pictured above was charged with disorderly conduct after she happened to be in the wrong place and the wrong time.
