NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) They were caught in the middle of madness.
Some grade school students were forced to walk a gauntlet of screaming Occupy Wall Street protesters just to get to school on Thursday.
It was a wild day in lower Manhattan for most everyone involved, including elementary school children who had to brave the mayhem just to get to class on the other side of Wall Street.

In the middle of thousands of protestors yelling and chanting some kicking and screaming CBS 2s Emily Smith found little school kids trying to get to class. Nervous parents led them through the barriers on Wall Street. The NYPD helped funnel the children, anything to ease their fears while some protestors chanted follow those kids!
These guys are terrorists, yelling at little kids, one father said.
For them its horrible. Theyre afraid of all the crowds. Were not even able to get through. Theyre just, hes very afraid now, a mother added.
One protester followed a father and his little daughter all the way down the block. As the school day ended just after 3 p.m. children trickled out of Leman Manhattan Prep on Broad Street. Smith heard a 4-year-old boy telling his mom he was scared. He told Smith it looked like a parade.
There was a parade. It was scary crowded with school, the boy said.
After a while it got so bad some parents couldnt get their children through and they had to go late, said Gary Goldenstein of Tribeca.
Some saw the days doings as chaos; others saw it differently.
The parents actually along with teachers were at every entry point into this area, which is fantastic, said Vicki Pitcock of Tribeca.
School officials said they havent had to change school times or cancel class, and are trying to keep it that way.
How far is too far? Please offer your thoughts in the comments section below.
They’re not only targeting kids, they’re using them to lead chants and march. I saw it on the live stream.
It’s what we call “bullying”.
Someone should tell the President - he has an anti-bullying agenda.
Of course, he’s also pro-OWS - so like everything else he’s doing, it’s a complete failure.
..hey Pelosi, ???????....where’s Bela?, your people need you
The OWSers do look out for the children... they must be that 1% to have gotten them so ticked off for going to school!
Please let there be video of this and let the TEA Party run commercials of this alongside with DemocRATs who praised this “occupation”.
If they bother the children their butt needs to go to jail—PERIOD.
Biblical plagues of locusts.
Only instead of destroying all the crops theyre trying to destroy commerce-which would be the modern day equivalent...
They think it's their Constitutional right to camp out and have their "Freedom of Speech". They love all these rights when they want to do something, but don't want any part of them when the topic is the Second Amendment.
I believe if you're terrorizing others with your free speech rights, or grossly infringing on the rights of others, spreading disease and just being a public nuisance in general, you forfeit those rights and have the right to remain silent as you're being led away kicking and screaming in a matching set of very tight bracelets.
I am starting to worry about this massive bunch of shock troops that have been left to roam free. If this isn't shut down soon, it could get ugly. Think about trying to go out and vote with these Oholes all over the polling place blocking the entrance. Or maybe they're trying to incite some kind of civil war so they can impose martial law.
It's really making me sick-all of it.
No big deal - it's not like people were consuming salt or sodas. Those are real crimes (extreme sarcasm)
I guess “Eat the Rich” includes rich kids. Class warfare includes children. Obama must approve.
‘In the middle of thousands of protestors’—————
weird, I read only 500 showed up....
I’d like to see these OWS a—holes go up the Bronx and try this stunt on some of the kids in the predominately Dominican neighborhoods.
The OWS trust fund kids would get a REAL learning experience in celebrating diversity along with a education in multiculturalism when some Dominican mother while protecting her children, activates an occupiers dental plan.
Nancy Pelosi - on OWS: God bless them, for their spontaneity. Its independent its young, its spontaneous, and its focused. And its going to be effective.
"We don't need no education ..."
Boy, I will say this much, Obama is truly living his dream. Our economy is a disaster, we now have socialized health care, and now total anarchy in the streets.
He must be loving it. The socialist turd that he is.
I suggest we declare a “TAKE YOUR LOUISVILLE SLUGGER TO WORK” day
If some smelly degenerate POS happens to get in the way while practicing your home run swing........
What did Stalin say... you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs?
Meaning those kids are expendable if it furthers the revolution.
Good point. You can see the truth of your statement in the faces of the OWS.

They’re insane. And Bloomberg is letting them get away with it. He should be impeached tomorrow.
Barack Hussein Obama approves of this ...
If I were the father of the child who was stalked by a protester, two things would have happened.
1. I would beat the shit out of the protester, and
2. I would tell the cop that the protester was stalking his daughter like a sexual predator, that I had to protect my child, and that I want him arrested for stalking (and a check to see if he had a “yellow sheet”.
If I had a trial for beating him up, I would only have parents in the jury. You know the rest.
nullification for you FRiend, if i lived there...
I learned “jury nullification” tactics from the communists, esp. William Kunstler, Charles R. Gary (one of Hillary’s legal mentors - New Haven Black Panther murder trial), and Arthur Kinoy.
It is a two edged sword, if we use it properly.
If it were my kid in that situation I would take her aside and use this as a (I HATE this smarmy phrase) “teachable moment”. I’d explain to her that since she’s going to eventually learn about the birds and bees here’s the first thing you need to know. Take a good look around. This is what a bunch of a$$holes and d*ckheads REALLY look like.
“...THEY DID THIS TO MY KID THEY’D BE SCRAPING HIPPY REMAINS OFF THE SIDEWALKS!...”
I concur wholeheartedly.
Remember that it IS New York and folks are disarmed via the Sullivan Act which prohibits peasents from carrying firearms for lawful self defense.
That’s why these OWSholes are so brazen. They know no one is going to drill them between them the eyes.
There’s other ways of dealing with them, though... there are PLENTY of things you can carry that are legal (for now) that you can use to protect yourself and your family that WILl cause damage and make the perp cease and desist.
