Sept 24, 2011 - OccupyWallStreet - near Union Square, NYPD attempt to break up protests with orange nets, billyclub young man with camera, pepper spray female protesters. Chaos is not the enemy. We are the 99%.
And thank you to the medic who flushed my eyes with what I guess what liquid antacid and water, and wiped my eyes with the bandana around his wrist saying, "This was my grandfather's bandana, he got through Korea with this, and that means you're going to get through this." And it helped immensely. Thank you. I'm glad we take care of each other.
Just as a quick side note, I want to make clear that in general I support the police force, my mom worked in the justice system for 30 years and I know that for the most part cops are good honorable people doing their jobs, and often they are heroes. But whether these cops were just scared and thinking irrationally or taking out their own misdirected rage, there is no excuse for this violent abuse of their authority. This was wrong and it didn't make anyone safer. Hell, along the same lines, I even support the death penalty, but executing Troy Davis only weakened the integrity of the system that I have, up until yesterday, supported and defended.
Pepper spray is a real weapon that hurts like hell and should only be used in the most desperate of situations, not on peaceful protesters that let you push them onto the sidewalk but won't let you corral them into a parking garage.
All day, all week, occupy Wall Street.
