An otherwise peaceful protest was marred by unprovoked arrests when officers lunged into the crowd on the sidewalk and tackled people to the ground. No warning - no reason - just violent intimidation. This happened twice during a peaceful march that kept to the sidewalk. The second time the NYPD arrested people carrying the Occupy banner and confiscated it as well. By the end of the night there were over 20 arrests according to the NLG. This is the video referenced by Colin Moynihan here in the NY Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/16/nyr... The NYPD took the first opportunity they had to aggressively assault peaceful activists in an attempt to crush the celebration of the one year anniversary of OWS which is tomorrow 9.17.12.
