Police came in the middle of the night to remove the #OccupySF camp. At roughly timestamp 2:00 in the video, you can see officer #682 attack an unarmed protestor who had just complied with his order to get back on the sidewalk.

At timestamp 2:50 officer #682 appears to punch the subdued protestor in the head. The video doesn't show it well but, in person, the punch was clear and you can hear the reaction from the crowd who saw it too.

I want to take a moment and thank the vast majority of the SFPD force which, that night, showed restraint and professionalism in the face of a difficult crowd. Not all cops are bad. Most of them are just like the rest of us: the 99%.

Update: Officer #682 may be Ronald T Liberta based on a 2-yr old court filing: http://docs.justia.com/cases/federal/...
