I swear I'm not trolling. I'm sympathetic to #OccupyWallStreet. I just have logistics questions.
1. What was the rationale for a demonstration seeking to physically occupy Wall Street to cross into Brooklyn?
2. How did the NYPD on the Brooklyn Bridge actually arrest 700 people? In this video, the police are vastly outnumbered. If these arrest figures are correct, these were some orderly-ass protesters who would have had to willfully submit to arrest, even after the nets came out on the bridge. Which makes reported incidents of brutality seem even less justified. (Not that police brutality is ever justified, but you get my point, I hope.)
Like I said: logistics questions. I'm not seeing news accounts of the arrests explain.
Meanwhile, Micah Sifry explains how and why he went from #occupywallstreet skeptic to supporter.
