Of course, we don't know exactly what happened before the cop punched the guy in the first video, but this video has to make you wonder about some of the actions the NYPD has taken over the last several weeks.

In the second video, a NYC cop runs over a protester's leg with his scooter. Again, we don't know what exactly led to all of this.

That is the worst acting since Gigli. He should probably get his money back for his Drama/Theatre degree.

Hey NYPD,

You should have driven over his head instead.

Why can't these OWS slackers protest peacefully like the dangerous Tea Party? I don't recall cops having to pepper spray or stomp on any of those violent, radical folk.

Nice try but your attempt to vilify the police in this instance was a complete failure.

1. The police are coming through...GET OUT OF THE WAY.

2. He put his own legs under there. He wasnt knocked down or run over.

3. You have to be an idiot to intentionally provoke or look for a altercation with the police, which is what this idiot and others like him did.

Better luck next time kaimuki
