The Occupy Wall Street movement is a non violent protest, but every day, we see photos of people thrown to the ground, knelt on, surrounded by police and arrested. These protesters are exercising their First Amendment Rights, and the NYPD needs to to control the officers who are illegally, and often violently, violating those rights.

      This is a perfect example of public servants violently abusing their power.

      I too am appalled by what I have seen in the videos. Videos that are being brought to my attention from people even outside the U.S.

      The world is watching and baffled as to the value of The Constitution and why the media is blacking out coverage.

      The ones who need to be arrested are the ones on Wall Street who WE bailed out and they're still up to their tricks. The protesters did not ruin your monetary worth, your retirement, your life savings....... This is a peaceful protest.

      Violence causes violence. Stop inflicting such on non-violent,peaceful protesters. I heard two people got pepper sprayed in the face point blank range; and an officer laughed or something. Sickening.
