A woman sitting in a chair at the park knitting requires the presence of at least six white shirts in NYC?
What amazes me again and again is the fact that these officers go into a crowd that is vocal yet peaceful and go ahead and escalate the situation and anger the crowd.
I really have to wonder why these supervisors are doing the exact opposite of what they were trained to do at the academy in regards to crowd dynamics. Intentionally angering the crowd is the only explanation for the repeated acts of incitement by the police.
We know they are trying to trap Occupiers the judge that threw out the Brooklyn Bridge arrests agrees.
Captain Lombardo isolated one person in the protest to make an example of and the person he chose was a 56 year old woman. Her crime? Sitting in a chair and knitting.
