MUST SEE RAW VIDEO - Peaceful Female Protesters Penned And Maced By Police At Wall Street Occupation

     Email Video to a Friend


This is pretty shocking video from yesterday, day 8 of 'Occupy Wall Street.'  You will see the arm of a police officer dressed in a white shirt enter the frame and spray pepper mace.  The officer then simply walks away while the women scream.

Text below from Youtube:

While on a peaceful march near Union Square in downtown Manhattan, multiple female protestors were penned up in the street by orange mesh baricade, then maliciously maced.

The women were peaceful and unarmed. They were secured by barricade with an overwhelming police presence. And they were then sprayed directly in the face with pressurized mace.

You can see the mace being held in the hand of a police officer in the right side of the above screenshot.


Here you see the spray as the women have already turned away.

That cop needs a blanket party while he's wearing a plastic bag over his head full of Mace.

It is amazing these idiots don't realize actions like this are what starts riots.

These outrageous acts of police brutality are being blacked out by main stream propaganda media.

How long will it take before flash mobs invite main stream shill media to a Molotov cocktail party?

The government is rogue top down, bottom up and inside out. It's just a matter of time before all hell breaks loose.

Glad you posted this one. There's a lot that can be said about this.

First, what the hell are Bloomberg and the NYPD trying to do? What's with caging and barricading people just because they want to engage in peaceful protest? I'm as cynical as anyone, but it's worth considering what the real motives are. I.e. is it just authoritarianism run amok, or are they just trying to protect the Important People from embarrassment?

Second, when will Bloomberg or the chief of police grovel in front of the cameras and apologize for this blatant assault on a handful of young women? Never, that's when.

Third, when will the press start to DEMAND that authorities answer for this blatant assault on a handful of young women? Again, probably never. Someone like Gretchen Morgenson might do, however. We'll see.

Finally, from DAY ONE of this peaceful protest, the NYPD (and other departments?) have been out in massive numbers, preemptively. WTF?

Next time the protesters should dress properly: http://bp3.blogger.com/_AkHeUaEva5k/RpFVwZeHAFI/AAAAAAAAC4Y/yiIYEqSiL7c/s1600-h/Weathermen.jpg

Note that whoever the fucking idiot was who sprayed the mace, besides being a psychopathic bully, he also sprayed it directly on his own officers and then walked away leaving them holding the bag.

New York City has some real dirt bag idiots among its police brass and that was one of them. Get his name. That would be real reporting.

In the name of protecting the temples of greed on Wall Street there are no restrictions on the level of violence the police may utilize to quash even peaceful protests. Is Goldman Sachs paying the overtime for the officers?

It saddens and shocks me these unarmed
women engaging in peaceful protest would
be so viciously attacked. It is a Constitutional

It should also be alarming and upsetting to
all the good policemen out there trying to

j r, They start a big enough riot it may actually get the civil war rolling and they'll end up dead. But so would a lot of regular Americans. I think the blanket party is the best option. Televised of course!

"Those who make peaceful revolution impossible make violent revolution inevitable." "JFK '62, but true still regardless of your political party"

I wonder when the American People are going to finally realize the major political parties in the U.S.A. are different in name only. The real power in the all these parties is guided by the elite special interests. That guidance extends to all elected officials, their assistants, and their employees. Democrat or Republican no difference, their true goals in government are the same.

To keep diverting the wealth of the nation to the elite and corporate special interests.

Make sure any legislation that would actually protect the american consumer never passes period. Take two years to pass a bill like the C.F.P.A. and any like it that would pass in two days if the special interests wanted them passed, all the while amending them to be powerless and blocking them in every way possible.

With the help of Corporate Controlled Main Stream Media, keep the sheeple living in mortal fear of terrorists. Throw Deficits, government shutdowns, economic collapse, and any other terrifying chicken little event they can come up with at them . Hypnotizing and overwhelming them with bullshit, some important, most not.

At the same time making sure the sheeple never realize the truth. That their futures, their children's futures, and their whole way of life has been destroyed by their own government under the control of Domestic and International Special Intreests.

I think George Carlin's (The Truth About Wall Street) and (The Bill Of Privileges) Tells more truth about what's actually going on in the U.S.A. in twelve and a half minutes, then the MSM has done in the last four years.

Obama is planning on pissing off the people to the point of making peoples anger rise to the point of armed riot retalliations. Don't you see that? He wants to declare martial law. He has the OK from the elitist's to do it. I bet the police support it as well, so that they can have the opportunity to do some killings, as their ego's require it. There is reason to riot people. We will all be rioting one day soon. The world banking cartel and the one world order people are readying you into forced compliance of the acceptance of REAL ID, which is enrollment into the RFID bodily implant. America has no clue what is coming , and is not in the slightest ready in any area of their being for what is coming. Agenda 21 & Codex Alimentarius are just 2 you need to know are real.

Yes, you really can order pizza (from anywhere) for the folks at Occupy Wall St. Here's the link. Just tell them to deliver to the Occupy Wall St. folks or send it to "1 Liberty Square" -- they'll know what you're talking about because they've been sending pizzas over there all week.

Here's a pic of the "Occu-pie": http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=534268&l=4458f57dd5&id=157924040929162

Sorry, Daily Bail, it doesn't look like a" peaceful protest " to me..when you put yourself in harm's way, there are unintended consequences that do not always have pleasant outcomes.

Maybe your coverage leans a little left??? Certainly most of the comments do exactly that...I'm only trying to show another view of the same scenario. I think those lovely young women could use their time for something more positive..
Sep 26, 2011 at 1:15 PM | Unregistered Commentertruthteller
If you knew anything about this site, you would know our coverage doesn't lean left or right. We support balanced budgets, an end to the illegal wars, and especially an end to corporate cronyism. We are strong capitalists, who hate bailouts. We want a fair playing field where failed companies are allowed to fail and corporations don't control Congress.

Dear Bail, When you ENDORSE (your words) the likes of Larry Flynt I fail to see where youre leanings are neutral as you claim...Who protested when we bailed out GM, Chrysler, etc, and allowed GE to go off shore and now to India to avoid paying taxes.. AND...Can anyone say Warren Buffett?

What "first time" American protesters? Maybe you were not around in the 60's. I certainly was.. now that 's protesting!
Not that it means anything, but,FYI, I've been voting Republican since I registered at 21, hardly what you could call "Socialist"
Maybe Wall Streeet won't need a" bail out" after all. It did very well for me today...Protests should be directed at source of our problems..1600 Pennsylvania Ave. .

"I hope you all realize that the rabble rousers are paid left wing hacks"

Interesting. You draw this conclusion based on a trip to New York (Manhattan?) two years ago. Isn't that inference a bit thin?

In any event, don't the people who are now protesting the Federal Reserve represent the true conservative movement in this country? You are for the Rule of Law, right? I mean, the concept dates all the way back to 1215, which is about as conservative as it gets. The Federal Reserve comprises a collection of private banks, whose offenses against the law include but are not limited to the following:

1. Lacking promissory notes, and thus without any standing to sue, they defraud courts with forged documents to illegally foreclose on homeowners.

2. Lacking promissory notes, they nevertheless sold mortgage-backed securities that are not mortgage-backed. That's fraud. Alternatively, they sold bundles of promissory notes as AAA-rated knowing they're not AAA quality. That's securities fraud. Alternatively still, they sold the same promissory notes multiple times. That's fraudt too.

3. They engage in accounting fraud, marking worthless (as in $0.00) assets at 90-95 cents on the dollar.

4. They engage in insurance fraud, buying credit default swaps from companies that have no money.

5. They engage in loan fraud, making loans that they know cannot and will not repaid, in order to collect fees and secure said same promissory notes, which they in turn sell to multiple investors. See 2.

Despite the systematic and wholesale violations of black letter law by members of the Federal Reserve banking system, there have been no--zero--prosecutions of executive level bankers. Why is that?

One reason is that "conservatives" like yourself don't understand the term. If you'd read (or remotely understood) Milton Friedman, a consevative legend, you'd understand that capitalism without law is an oxymoron, a fiction. Further, if actually cared about the most conservative principle underlying our republic, you'd probably care that it's getting gang-banged every day by the likes of cowards like Jamie Dimon and Lloyd Blankfein.

It is no accident that the protestors are young. At some level they must understand that this economy will not and cannot turn around under a system of untrammeled looting and depradation that you fully sanciton.

Congratulations. Now get back to your favorite left-right puppet show on your TV.

I think those protest are directed right where they should be. The thing that really pisses me off is the MSM Bobble-heads are pretending it's not going on. 50 people can fart in Greece, Ireland, or China and it prime-time, but mace helpless women on Wall Street and the corporate propaganda outlets ignore it.
