"Observations of a Jailed Journalist" - WNET journalist tells his story of arrest at #OCCUPYWALLSTREET →

When we first arrived on the scene, protesters were marching along the sidewalk in unison, chanting. There was no sense of chaos. Many held video and audio recording devices, including camera phones.

However, the stream of protesters did disrupt traffic. Pedestrians wove in and out of the mass of protesters, some on their way to do Saturday errands, others who joined in for a block or two, chanting with the masses.

As more people spilled into the street, police started to demand that protesters stay on the sidewalk. But as people seemed to be retreating from harm’s way, police began pushing the protesters. I saw police use large nets to corral people en masse. I watched as police pepper sprayed several young women in the face. (An NYPD spokesperson confirmed the use of pepper spray to MetroFocus.) I saw senior citizens and teenagers get arrested. I saw about 20 or 30 police officers tackle people and prod them roughly with police batons…

When I saw the young women get pepper sprayed, I ran over to interview them. While holding a microphone and wearing a badge identifying myself as an employee of “WNET – New York Public Media,” I found myself suddenly roped into one of the large nets. I was thrown against a wall and handcuffed with hard plastic zip-tie restraints. I sat kneeling on the sidewalk with about 50 others. I yelled over and over “I’m press! I’m with WNET MetroFocus! Please do not arrest me.”

Except it wasn’t ‘hate,’ you Fox ‘news’ douchebag lickers, it was ‘hat.’ ‘Hat.’ You lose you fucking morons, watch it for yourselves. Not to mention, we’re talking about master satirist Stephan Colbert, here.

The foe will riseWith the sleep still in their eyesAnd they'll jerk from their beds and think they're dreamin'And they'll pinch themselves and squealAnd they'll know that it's for realThe hour when the ship comes inAnd they'll raise their handsSayin' "We'll meet all your demands"And we'll shout from the bow "Your days are numbered"And like the pharoah's triumphThey'll be drownded in the tideLike Goliath they'll be conquered— When The Ship Comes In
The foe will rise
With the sleep still in their eyes
And they'll jerk from their beds and think they're dreamin'
And they'll pinch themselves and squeal
And they'll know that it's for real
The hour when the ship comes in

And they'll raise their hands
Sayin' "We'll meet all your demands"
And we'll shout from the bow "Your days are numbered"
And like the pharoah's triumph
They'll be drownded in the tide
Like Goliath they'll be conquered
