Tahrir Square Comes to New York, Act II. Trade Unions Step In, Cops Swing Batons Like Baseball Bats
Just before 8 p.m. Wednesday, reportedly at the corner of Broadway and
Wall Street, a New York Police Department officer appeared to turn on a
throng of activists with the Occupy Wall Street movement, hitting them
with a baton. A video posted hours later to YouTube shows the officer
wielding the baton with two hands — like a baseball bat — as he swings
at and strikes the demonstrators. At one point, a woman can be heard
shrieking in the background.
