Forum Post: NYPD loses an Occupy Wall Street trial

This case could have been a slam dunk for the NYPD, had it not been for one thing: the video showing police claims of disorderly conduct during an OWS protest to be completely untrue.

Hundreds have been arrested during the Occupy Wall Street protests, but photographer Alexander Arbuckle’s case was the first to go to trial – and after just two days, the Manhattan Criminal Court found him not guilty.

Supporters of the OWS protest movement have already hailed the ruling as a major legal victory.

NLG (National Lawyers Guild) is a great organization .... proud to be a supporter (look forward to being able to support it more in the future, as hopefully circumstances will permit).

No wonder the police doesn't want cameras near the protests. It shows who the REAL Gangstas' are - THE COPS
