    How did they react? Better than me.

    They were professional and displayed exceptional restraint. Me, I'm not so restrained anymore and probably would have been the topic of a post "How do you think this @#$% reacted to the mob at 3:00 mins - yea the guy choking someone out (or worse)...

    They really did a great job.

    They reacted as they were trained to do, to keep order and arrest those that need to be arrested / disturbing the peace (disorderly conduct). Trying to arrest someone who's resisting is one thing. Now try arresting someone at the scene of a demonstration, who's resisting AND retreating into an "angry crowd / mob"....:steamed:.. This takes it to an entirely different level... A You Tube video doesn't do it justice. ... You may not realize this, but not only are the Police being at taped by the public, but also by the PD for a review of tactics. I commend them for acting with restraint.

    I saw one TARU officer videotaping. The problem is the dummy was using his strong hand to do it with and his pistol was vulnerable.

    I think the demonstrators protesting against Wall Street resonates very sympathetically with everyone. Heck, I'd like to kick some Wall Street butt for losing a large chunk of my retirement and investiment monies since 2008.

    But as for the NYPD's conduct, that has been for the whole a non-event except what was stirred up by the media.

    Mass demonstrations seem to follow a certain characteristic. First they start out as fairly friendly. Then when the demonstrators realize no one is paying attention, or their messages are not resonating, plan B is to incite the police. Works great in getting tea and sympathy, and media attention.

    At 3:09 the chick in the black shirt and green bag takes a swing/swipe at one of the Sergeants, she is then arrested, I see no "police brutality". She learned that her actions have consequences.

    Is it just my computer or is the video put in fast forward at around 2:55?

    Most suspicious thing I have seen in the bottom video is the pepper spraying around 4:00. Othere then that, well looks ok to me.

    Then she did something else to the brass in the white shirt, which is what got her arrested, I think.

    They're lucky I am retired. My reactions would be a huge YouTube sensation.

    I think they needed more fire hose, sting-ball grenades, and 3' sticks used for beating hippies. JMNSHO. What they did probably plays better on the news though.

    That's kind of harsh calling him a dummy. Only problem is every camera I know of needs to be operated by the right hand (strap to support hand is meant for right handers and the LCD screen is on left side meaning you must carry it in your right). You'll notice there was another similarily dressed officer with the camera operator at all times to watch his back.

    I was in our Forensic Identification Unit (just another name for CSI) and part of our mandate was videotaping demonstrations or other public gatherings. We always worked in pairs. One operated the camera and the other would watch his back and that was his only job.

    I can't think of any other way to carry the camera properly but perhaps you could suggest a better way.

    If you watch the video there are several times where his side is to the crowd and he's within spitting distance of the crowd. In addition if you look at his hand the videocam is synched down tight on the back of his hand so he can't drop it in a hurry. I'll rephrase what I said, he's not a dummy, but some of his actions weren't the wisest.

    It's still going on. Thus, I think NYPD should step up their game and collar EVERYONE who fails to comply the first time.

    There was a time that I've heard of that there would be charges of mounted cops to clear such a scene.
