Occupy Wall St. Marchers Hurt Police-Violence Escalates
This time it’s getting ugly and causing injuries. Wall St. Occupy Protest marchers have injured a New York Policeman.
Marchers, having been displaced from Zuccotti Park, staged an attempted march through the Wall Street district, with original plans of distrupting trading and financial activity. The NYPD was able to “steer” them using barricades and their forces, and largely blunt their attempt. Over 100 were arrested, and two officers were injured by marchers. Once officer was slashed by a sharp object thrown at him, sustaining a hand injury, another officer had to have his eyes flushed after some sort of irritant was thrown on him. As perhaps a warning about their penchanet for violent behavior, march protestors said they are going to have meetings about how to take it to the “next level.”
