Occupywallstreet female protester dragged by hairs

As  the Occupy wall street stages a “day of action” and  mounts a huge  rally coast to coast against Mayor Bloomberg, it is evident disturbing incidents and Police brutality is becoming common place.  Though the movement is relatively tame and peaceful, without the destruction of people or property, Police is using heavy handed tactics to discourage protesters. Protesters keep growing in number day by day, and on the 60 th day of the movement’s birth there were lot more people on the streets than a month ago. Their numbers range from few hundred to few thousands any place and the crowds are virtually growing. It’s an over worked and underpinned Police department that has used brutality as a means to overcome the odds and numbers and retain superiority on the streets.

Protesters are beaten, dragged and cattle prodded by a ruthless Police force. A citizen captured an event where you can see officers from NYPD clearly dragging a female protester by the hair into the middle of the street. The footage is remarkable, taken from a cell phone camera. Watch this video.

The video is courtesy CNN’s ireport a Citizen contributed project.

    I support efforts to protest the gross income disparity in America and the conrol of Govt by Corporate interests and wealthy Americans.

    But misinforming the public about supposed incidents such as the one above has nothing to do with the bigger issues at hand.

    I’ve watched this video numerous times, slowed it down, paused it, re-examined it…..

    The video clearly shows the police have grabbed hold of the top strap of the backpack (rather than hair).

    I’m not denying that police brutality has occurred but to call every action of the police “brutality” serves no purpose.

    The rich, the corporate muckety mucks, and the power brokers would be happy for the protest to turn into a protest against the police instead of against the powerful corporate leaders.

    DONT play into their hands.

    Watch the video again, Police is dragging the woman by hairs first than when the crowd yells he lets her go and grabs the backpack.
