Video - Lawrence O'Donnell on police brutality at Occupy Wall Street - Sep. 26, 2011
UPDATE - All is NOT well with the NYPD. Read these 2 new stories posted last night.

"It's unsurprising that establishment media outlets have been condescending, dismissive and scornful of the ongoing protests on Wall Street.
