Journalist and Reason contributor Michael Tracey is covering New York's Occupy Wall Street as it's happening. Above is footage he shot as the protesters marched through the street of Manhattan and had various stand-offs with the New York Police Department. Tracey himself reports being punched in the shoulder while filming.

In the above video, around the 1.40 mark, a white-shirted NYPD officer decks a protester in a green shirt (how the incident started is unclear). Reason.tv's Meredith Bragg edited the video above from about 20 minutes of footage.

Lol all the people just video taping and doing nothing. This is why there is no revolution. The American public is too coward to fight back.

if one gets in a cops face you may get hurt. is anyone really surprised or simply angered by something beyond their control. those protests will never change anything. law enforcement is too big and the military is on my side. get a life. 
this was just a big waste of time.  a lot of money spent and nothing accomplished.

The video does not show what the woman did to the cop. You could see he was trying to get his cuffs out after the incident. She obviously did something to deserve an arrest.

0:18, Stupid leftist claiming Nazism since 2011. This anti right rhetoric from regressive intolerant leftists is nothing more than political silencing just like the brown shirts did to others. By the way, Nazis were hard leftists not right, isn't that a coincidence?

The police should just get out of the way and let traffic take out those protesters.
