Police have released two videos that show officers warning hundreds of Occupy Wall Street protestors who marched across the Brooklyn Bridge Saturday that demonstrators will be arrested if they do not get off the roadway.
In each video, an NYPD officer is reading a statement into a bullhorn.
In the first video, the officer says in part:
“I am ordering you to leave this roadway now. If you do so voluntarily, n0 charges will be placed against you. If you refuse to leave, you will be placed under arrest and charged with disorderly conduct. If you do not wish to be arrested, you must leave this area now.”
As the officer is giving the warning, protestors can be heard chanting what sounds like “Take the bridge!” and “This is what democracy looks like!”
This really pisses me off because if they focused this energy they might actually accomplish something. I’m beginning to think that’s the point.
While the protestors are marching around Wall Street and chanting about greed, they aren’t costing the bankers a dime. They also aren’t supporting a primary challenger to Obama.
They aren’t even talking about him.
