Occupy Wall Street, Late Tuesday
Yahoo, Twitter and Google (via YouTube) all did some pretty shady stuff, but I'm going to try to put all that together in a longer post Thursday. Stay tuned for links!
If arrests resume tomorrow, the NYPD First First District phone is 212-334-0611. Cf. this:
everybody at risk of being arrested had lined up a lawyer in advance. Parents of the kids were informed, and we had a network of old ladies who called the police station continuously to ask about those who had been arrested. And now you are sitting there, and everything is happening as predicted, and the good detective is offering you a cigarette and the bad one is hitting you on the head and it looks like a bad joke. And the phones are ringing in the police station and nobody can do anything. And my question is, who is under siege now? This is not the most comfortable situation for the police: they deal with criminals. You block them from doing their normal job, traffic, looters, the things they should do instead of interrogating an 18-year-old kid for wearing a T-shirt...
All precinct phone numbers here.
MSM blackout largely being observed. Twitter has been the best resource - same as in the heat of the #wiunion protests. What interesting things has everyone been seeing?
