Video: NY Cops Brutally Drag Female ‘Occupy Wall Street’ Protester Across Street
This is just one of many videos of police brutality against peaceful, unarmed ‘Occupy Wall Street’ protesters that’s appeared online following today’s large-scale day of action in New York City and elsewhere.
According to The Raw Story, a CNN iReporter caught the alarming brutality as if unfolded. “We noticed that cops were pulling the girl by her hair,” the recorder of this video, identified only by his iReporter name “rocker75,” explained. “People starting yelling that it was police brutality. That’s when I started filming.”
Bystanders booed NYPD officers as they dragged the woman into the street by her backpack and, witnesses say, her hair. Some shouted “SHAME”; others cried for help.
It is unclear why officers attacked the woman.
