+ - Occupy Wall Street Protest Turns Ugly

Submitted by theodp
theodp (442580) writes "The Atlantic's James Fallows has an important video from the Occupy Wall Street protests he'd like to share, in which a New York City police officer gives a penned-up group of women a taste of pepper spray. Fallows explains further: 'He walks up; unprovoked he shoots Mace or pepper spray straight into the eyes of women held inside a police enclosure; he turns and walks away quickly (as they scream, wail, and fall to the ground clawing at their eyes) in a way familiar from hitmen in crime movies; and he discreetly reholsters his spray can.' The NYPD's chief spokesman said the police had used the pepper spray 'appropriately'. 'Pepper spray was used once,' he added, 'after individuals confronted officers and tried to prevent them from deploying a mesh barrier — something that was edited out or otherwise not captured in the video.' More pics from the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations here."
