A group of Occupy Wall Street activsts assaulted a man who happened to point a camera in their direction.
The activists stormed up to him, pushing him, threatening him, sticking their hands in his face and telling him he had no respect because he had recorded them.
The incident took place early Tuesday morning after police had evicted the activists from Zuccotti Park.
It appears they may have been attempting to let air out of police car tires, which is probably why they didn’t want the added attention from a video camera.
So they turned into thuggish assholes and confronted him, ensuring the added attention.
The guy with the camera maintains a Twitter feed called @TheOther99, which means he is not officially embedded with the official Occupy Wall Street movement, but has been documenting it from the beginning.
We have been a PRIMARY source of the peaceful occupation of Zuccotti Park since Day One. We continue to report from the front lines, fueled by small donations from all around the world. We attempt to remain objective while filing reports, however we do weave together a narrative that can be followed during the ongoing Media Blackout.
We encourage an open, honest dialogue in every community across the country on how to move America forward. We encourage every citizen to make their voice heard. We reject hate speech and manufactured divisions by some in the Corporate Media.
