As you may know there have been protests going on in wall street called occupy wall street. Protesters have been “occupying wall street” to voice their frustration with both the economy and Wall Street. For the most part these protest have been peaceful, but at some point NYPD intervened. Perhaps the most egregious incident involving excessive force came after NYPD officers began kettling protesters (a peaceful group of women) with orange police nets and pepper spraying them.In total the police arrested approximately 80 people mainly for disorderly conduct. In a statement to CBS New York, the NYPD said every arrest made was justified.
A video of one of the girls maced explaining her point of view.
