Occupy Wall Street: Why Are Police Attacking Peaceful Protesters?

As the members of Occupt Wall Street arrests nears 1,000, instances of police brutality continue to pile up. Felix Rivera-Pitre was punched in the face in New York during a march through the city’s financial district; Ryan Hadar was dragged out of the street by his thumbs at Occupy San Francisco; and at Occupy Boston, members of Veterans for Peace were shoved to the ground and dragged away for chanting and peacefully occupying a local park.

Footage from the Occupy Oakland protest, October 25th, 2011. After protesters ran to the aid of a badly-injured person, Oakland Police deliberately lobbed a flash grenade into the crowd. Whatever you think of the Occupy movement, police behavior of this kind is criminal and should be prosecuted.

First amendment rights do not allow you to violate the law.

If you are told to disperse because law enforcement deems the situation is becoming dangerous and you fail to disperse, you are violating the law. The mob doesn't get to decide.
