The New York Police Department (NYPD) on Saturday cracked down on “Occupy Wall Street” protesters in a big way, arresting roughly 80-100 people, including members of the press, and accusing them of blocking traffic and resisting arrest.
One person was charged with assaulting a police officer and one officer suffered a shoulder injury, an NYPD spokesman said.
In the footage below, that crackdown is shown from the perspective of a protester, who scrambles through the chaotic melee trying to get each arrestee’s name before police haul them away.
“Do not do what you are told,” the Occupy Wall St. group urged NYPD’s lower-ranking “blue collar” officers on Wednesday. “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.”

Lindsey Graham completely loses it in Fox News interview — and demands Joe Biden testify
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who voted against having witnesses in the impeachment trial, now is demanding at least one witness in the impeachment trial: former Vice President Joe Biden.
In an interview with top adviser to President Donald Trump, Sean Hannity, Graham said he was ready to leave the United States if Biden isn't investigated.
"We're not going to live in that country!" Graham proclaimed.
As a point of fact, the Justice Department has had information on the Bidens for over a year, but has never opened an investigation into it.
Graham went on to say that the fact that Trump wanted Ukraine to announce an investigation was just "good government." In the United States, however, we don't ask other countries to do our investigations. Similarly, Trump never actually wanted an investigation, just the announcement of one.
Legal analyst rips senators for ‘getting the vapers’ and using Schiff ‘being mean’ as an excuse to vote against witnesses
Senators are already trying to come up with an excuse not to support calling witnesses for the impeachment trial and CNN legal analyst Jeff Toobin thinks they found it.
According to CNN's Manu Raju, Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), John Barrasso (R-WY), Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Jim Risch (R-ID) freaked out about a CBS News report cited by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) that a Trump confidant said if the Republicans vote against Trump their "head will be in a pike."
