NYC Mayor & Police Chief: STOP BRUTALITY against WALL ST. Protesters

NYC Mayor and Police Commissioner:

The response of the NYPD to the Occupy Wall St. peaceful movement is shameful. This is America. We have a right to peaceful assembly. You are not protecting and serving the people of New York who are bravely standing up against corporate greed and unjust tax policy. Instead, videos are spreading of how NYPD is spraying mace in the face of peaceful, corralled, defenseless protestors, pulling others by the hair, picking up others and throwing them, dragging others, and so on.

Show the world that America is different - a place of freedom. After all, the protestors are rebelling, in part, to protect against cuts to social programs, like the POLICE FORCE.

We call on you to investigate and punish the officers that used unlawful, excessive force against the peaceful protestors' right to assemble. Hold a press conference to apologize. The brutality videos will continue to spread virally. You WILL have to answer.

UPDATE: The officer who maced the penned, non-provoking women has been tentatively identified as Deputy Inspector Anthony Bologna, who also has a pending suit against him for assaulting protestors in 2004. A sadist like this should not be allowed to continue on the force. http://rt.com/usa/news/nypd-bologna-officer-anonymous-521/
