While watching the live feed of Occupy wall street a clash between some protestors and police broke out. Several protestors were seen to be hauled off. Huffington Post reports one protestor in critical condition as per twitter feed from the protest. At least one person was injured as per the following From Huffington Post:
The first arrest was a protester who objected to the police removing a tarp that was protecting our media equipment from the rain. The police said that the tarp constituted a tent, in spite of it not being a habitat in any way. Police continued pressuring protesters with extralegal tactics, saying that a protester on a bullhorn was breaking a law. The protester refused to cease exercising his first amendment rights and was also arrested. Then the police began to indiscriminately attempt to arrest protesters, many of them unsheathed their batons, in spite of the fact that the protest remained peaceful.Huffington Post reports Anonymous claims police have been confiscating recording cameras and such from protestors filming. First amendment anyone?
While this was going on MSNBC was doing story on Tea Party. CNN did not mention.
