Another item in Bloomberg’s stupid column. He’s letting these cockroaches stay indefinitely.
Just a short while after protesters learned they’d be able to stay in Zuccotti Park indefinitely, violence broke out as a group marched away from it.
Protesters, apparently jubilant over being able to stay in the park after their furious cleanup efforts, took their brooms, flags and signs and started fanning out at around 7:30 a.m.
1010 WINS’ Steve Sandberg reported the protesters were saying things to the effect that now that they’d cleaned up the park, they were going to clean up Wall Street.
A group of protesters headed south on Broadway toward the New York Stock Exchange, carrying their brooms. Police were taken off-guard, Sandberg reported. The group swelled quickly and wound up in a confrontation with police as they tried to gain access to Wall Street. The standoff occurred near Bowling Green as they turned left on Beaver Street.
Police urged protesters to stay out of the street and stay on the sidewalk.
……Sandberg reported police clashed with some protesters, wielding their night sticks and batons.
First Precinct Commander Ed Winski checked a protester who refused to stay on the sidewalk. When the protester came back into the street, Winski hurled his megaphone down and wound up rolling around in the street with the protester, throwing punches. Other officers surrounded the two, throwing punches. The protester was arrested.
……Police say the protesters were throwing bottles and bags of garbage at officers, triggering the police response, Sandberg reported.
Police say they were trying to control the situation when it got out of hand.
At least a dozen demonstrators were arrested, mostly for ignoring police commands, CBS 2′s Dave Carlin reported.
Many of the protesters wound up circling back and returning to Zuccotti Park, Sandberg reported.
Just wait. It’s going to get worse. The ‘Occupy’ assholes talk violence, threaten violence, provoke violence and commit violence.
Michael Bloomberg owns this mess. He’s forcing the city, working people, and the cops to put up with this filth and violence, when he should have ordered the ‘occupy’ pigs cleared out as soon as it became obvious they wanted to squat and destroy instead of peacefully assemble.
