NYPD Targets Videographer In New Video

Another video has emerged from Monday’s protest against Goldman Sachs in the World Financial Center showing NYPD officers singling out a videographer.

The video shows a man holding a laptop computer in one hand and a small video camera in his other hand as he stood with a group of activists.

A New York City police officer then grabs him from behind as another grabs from the front.

The man hands off his laptop to another citizen before he is taken down.

At 1:43, a woman can be heard asking a man if he ok, which he responds, “they broke my camera.”

The Wall Street Journal reports that 17 activists were arrested during the protest, which included dancing in the financial center’s Winter Garden, a space owned by Brookfield Office Properties, the company that owns Zuccotti Park.

The Youtube description of this video states that police arrested five Occupy Wall Street videographers as well as a New York Times reporter, but there are no other reports of a reporter getting arrested.

However, we did see a New York Times photographer having a confrontation with an NYPD officer yesterday.
