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.

Potius sero quam nunquam.
I wonder how much all that garb they’re wearing costs?
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.
These “People” and I use that word loosely, are parasites, they contribute NOTHING to our society, all the want is everything they can get for free..they are communists, not a surprise..these are Obama’s people, freeloaders
These people should be given bars of soap with bathing instructions.
Poor dog. The only one in that picture with any dignity.
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?
yeah but those instructions involve reading, which is something I doubt those people know how to do
Release the hounds!
No better way to start the whole bathing process than a well-applied nightstick shampoo
Eeeeeghad, what is that thing in the middle of the pic?
Beatings? Finally? Yahoo indeed.
Zombie Apocalypse ...
Sorry useful idiots. It’s much too close to November now. You have failed your masters and shall be dealt with accordingly.
These putrid losers embarrass the parents they live with. They deserve any walnut shampoos they may receive.
During the War Between The States, you had to show Blood to get off the line, so Show Blood!
Looks like my ex, years ago.
“Eeeeeghad, what is that thing in the middle of the pic?”
If you mean the one with the fag flag sticking out of the back of its head, it’s really nothing; just another fabulous basement dweller.

I can see why you have "sorry" as your tag line.
That looks like a dood.
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 that dog abuse, like sticking one in a carrier on top of your car would be?
Hippie beatings rule.
I think it’s a guy, Little Bill.
And see that dog on the left of the picture?
What is that thing she's carrying on her shoulder?
Isn’t Chris Casuccio (quoted in article) the moron that wants student loans forgiven as a way of stimulating the economy?

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.
I hear ya.
BTW, my post was meant to be humorous and just ribbing a fellow FReeper.
Sorry if it came across in any other way ;)
The only difference between these pigs and burglars is that at least burglars have the balls to break into your house.
These putrid losers embarrass the parents they live with.”
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!

Forgive student loan debt to stimulate the economy.
Beat em again, beat em again, HARDER, HARDER!!!!
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.
