NEW YORK (AP) An Occupy Wall Street protester says police gave demonstrators little warning before kicking them out of a New York City park overnight and that officers beat several of them during the arrests.

The protester, Chris Casuccio, was at Manhattan's Zuccotti Park on Saturday, where demonstrators chanted and held impromptu meetings to mark the six months since the movement against economic inequality.

I think what would be extremely fair would be for every protester that claims injury to line up in front of the officers they claim to be injured by - and each one who doesn’t have any detectable injuries gets beaten to pieces by the cops. Those that do have detectable injuries that exceed any reasonable use of force get $25,000 in a cashier’s check minus one thousand for every liar that shows up.

Though, of course, all the officers will likely claim a percentage of disability from beating up the protesters, so this won’t work anyway.

How rude. Those demonstrators should have seen the media guides and gilt-edged calling cards written in German that we airdropped over northern France before D-Day just so they could prepare for our tactics and arrival.

How dare the police take action without telegraphing it first?

No better way to start the whole bathing process than a well-applied nightstick shampoo

I can see why you have "sorry" as your tag line.

There needs to be an investigation.

We need answers.

Why did the police only beat several of the filthy, mooching louts when there were so many breaking the law and resisting authorities?

Isn’t Chris Casuccio (quoted in article) the moron that wants student loans forgiven as a way of stimulating the economy?

After a couple hundred grand you would be sorry also. In reality an admin mod changed my Tag Line because of a rather nasty, from their perception, opinion of Harry Browne.

My question is what in the world is going on with the city officials & leos who let this drag on & on? This is waaay beyond First Amendment rights and it certainly is violating the rights (en masse) of everyone around them.
There are just so many laws broken involving the health & safety of the general public, it boggles my mind. Not to mention literally destroying public- & private property.

This isn’t a 2 year old’s tantrum. This is dangerous, individually and as a society/ country.

Maybe their parents are of the same ilk as BO who supported Fluke and apparently would be okay with this type of behavior from his daughters. I think if either of my kids even thought about doing something like this, they would find themselves being the subject of a very late abortion.

I foresee a replay of 1968. I work 2 blocks from Zuccotti Park and a block from the Fed and when this OWS started there were a couple of morons protesting the Fed and they were so obviously 1968 wannabes.

Look for some serious violence at the DNC convention because Obama thinks he is the master of OWS protests, and the union thugs who are paid to show up will probably do his bidding, but no one else will be controlled by Obama and his minions.

Let’s see a resurrection of Dick Nixon’s “Law and Order” (pre tv-show for you young’uns) presidential campaign!

Long live the silent majority!

Actually, IF it is female, I think it could be somewhat attractive after the necessary scrubbing, delousing, hair styling, and nice clothes -- probably what dear old Mum & Dad always wanted. Now mind you, that's a BIG if.
