All this diary requires is this picture.  Look at this girls fear.  Look at her friend's fear.  Check out the facial expressions of others from the crowd.

Now look at the cowardly thugs dressed like NYPD.  It is very difficult to not hate the NYPD these days.

Police Brutality New York Today

OH, THAT'S NOTHING.  I'm so angry at this new pic, I can barely compose myself.

HERE'S NEW YORKS FREAKIN COWARDS, and damn them, some are actually smiling.

They've ripped a teen age girls blouse open, and carry her, like a trophy with her legs spread open.  

AND HOW CHEEKY!!  They made sure to have a Female NYPD and two Black NYPD carry this CHILD.


You that know me, know I don't use four letter words very often, but



It's really hard to get me this angry.

Thanks to Timothy Kraus, here's a picture of the young woman named Messiah a few days ago.  Taken in Union Park.

Messiah at Occupy Wall Street

What was this teenagers action that caused the NYPD to treat her this way?  ELEVEN SECONDS of blocking a cop on a scooter.  ELEVEN SECONDS.  Remember being this age?  Remember how we felt.  The NYPD has ZERO tolerance, ZERO empathy, and 100% drive to show their power.  

Here's the vid.  Messiah's 11 second event begins at 00:15

3/24 #LetFreedomSpring Anti-Police Brutality March, Live Updates

Today, we take direct action against the NYPD. They have spied on us, they have assaulted us, they have kidnapped us from the streets without cause or charge.

We, the 99% of people who will no longer be silent have chosen to make our voices heard. Former commissioner Raymond Kelly, we, the people have decided you no longer have a job. Any acts of brutality you order today will only serve as further evidence of your misconduct.

Hundreds With Occupy Wall Street Rally Against Police Brutality

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - Hundreds of Occupy Wall Street demonstrators are rallying Saturday with the family of man killed by a police officer to protest police brutality.

About 500 Occupy members marched from Zuccotti Park to Union Square with the family of John Collado, who was shot by a plain clothes police officer last fall.

Police say that Collado had the officer in a chokehold, but the victim’s family says he was simply trying to break up a fight between his friend and another man, who he didn’t know was a cop.

City Council member Ydanis Rodriguez is taking part in the demonstration and says they are also protesting violence by the NYPD against the protestors.

“They cannot pretend that this movement will disappear from the City of New York by some NYPD members using excessive force,” he said. “Enough is enough.”

Rodriguez says he believes that the NYPD needs to keep citizens safe, but in doing so, respect their rights.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
