Jennifer Weiss, one of the ten journalists arrested during Tuesday’s Occupy Wall Street rally, just posted a video of her arrest.
The Agance France Presse photojournalist was thrown into the same paddy wagon as Jared Malsin, who also recorded his arrest. His video is below.
Both journalists repeatedly told the officer they were with the press, but that did not make a difference.
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s spokesman tried to justify the arrests by saying they had no press credentials.
But the videos showed they were not breaking the law.
