Pepper Spray Incident in Slow Motion #OccupyWallSt

Although the corporate media is late to the punch I am glad to see them covering the pepper spray incident and other NYPD police brutality in great detail. The officer who did the pepper spray is identified as Anthony P. Bologna by anonymous who I think went too far to also disclose who the officer's family members were in addition to past civil rights complaints against the officer.  Kudos to Larry O'Donnell for this good piece.

Editor's Note: There are a large number of NYPD officers who are opposed to the violence and 99 refused to show up for work in solidarity with the "Occupy Wall Street" protesters.  Quoting the article Report: 100 New York Police Officers Boycott In Solidarity with Wall Street Protesters from Washington's Blog:

Are New York Police Boycotting to Protest Violence?

After New York’s finest brutalized peaceful Wall Street protesters, rumor has it that police officers are boycotting.
Occupy Wall Street notes:
Today we received unconfirmed reports that over one hundred blue collar police refused to come into work in solidarity with our movement. These numbers will grow. We are the 99 percent. You will not silence us.
But the 1% will certainly try to silence the 99%.
