Clayton’s Corner: On Scene at Occupy Wall Street
Clayton Patterson was again on hand at the Occupy Wall Street protest/rally/happening, and filed the following photo report:
The cops stopped the march, although was peaceful and on the sidewalk and following all the rules- from going north when Occupy Wall Street started to march uptown. The cops keep this up but finally the group crossed Canal street and then the cops allowed the march to go forward. At one stop an individual dressed in civilian clothes, rushed into the crowd and started to physically push one of the marchers- he did not identify himself as a police office. Only after he could not start a fight and he backed up I could see a piece of ID hanging in front of him- he tried very hard to stop me from photographing him-
He clearly was in the wrong- he was trying to start a fight- and he never id’ed himself as a cop- then he left the march- other photos are at stalled blocks.
