Troopers preparing for arrests

State Troopers are massing in a room outside the pension and benefit hearing room waiting to make arrests.  The Troopers have a line of tickets they are prepared to issue and according to a source there is a bus outside prepared to haul those arrested away.

The gathered crowd is a rowdy one, continually interrupting the testimony by Senate President and reform bill sponsor Steve Sweeney and cheering questions from Senate Majority Leader Barbara Buono. 

Budget Committee Chairman Sen. Paul Sarlo has repeatedly warned the crowd, but sources say a group of more than a dozen are preparing to force their own removal from the chamber.
