Police make arrests in Occupy protest

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Here we go again. Is it possible for the NYPD to show any restraint or is being a bunch of hooligans simply what they do?

Police arrested dozens of Occupy Wall Street protesters on Saturday night during a protest marking the movement's six-month anniversary at its birthplace in New York's Zuccotti Park. The sweep of the park by police just before midnight capped a day of demonstrations and marching in lower Manhattan. There was no official word on the number of arrests but dozens of people were handcuffed and led out of the park. Earlier in the day, 15 people were arrested and three officers suffered injuries, police said.
