And here are the most disturbing videos you will see from this morning’s Occupy Wall Street protests involving police/protester altercations.
Note of caution: Before crucifying the NYPD, the reports coming in from today’s stand-off involve both the protesters and the police trying to provoke each other into a full-blown riot.
A police officer on a scooter runs over a man’s leg. Screaming ensues. This video is not for the queasy or faint of heart.
And then there’s the tale of Felix Rivera-Pitre, a former dancer who was punched in the face by an officer today. Mr. Rivera-Pitra told Gothamist that he is HIV positive, and that the officer in question should get tested.
