I watched the livestream last night and although it was very spotty, you still got to hear and see some of the police brutality. Our OWS were well within their legal right but the police still did whatever they wanted.
Media didn't show up until kinda the end, NY1 was there and no surprise today, there is NO COVERAGE. I called NY1... And asked why no mention of this abuse on the morning tv. Her answer, we have people on scene right now. I told her NY1 was there towards the end, why no footage. Her lie.....we don't have news crew to be out at 4am.
When I explained that most of the police abuse happens around 12am to 4am. And this has been happening for a while. She replied again, we have no crew to cover that time.
Look OWS... When are you going to say enough and make sure you get that coverage. Last night was so bad that I was 100% positive I was going to turn the news on and see some footage, at least NY1. It doesn't make you SICK to witness what happened last night... And NOT ONE local news is informing the public?
Again I say....ENOUGH! Its really time to figure better ways to demand that coverage. The police really are not your problem... Its the media and the people who pulling the strings to keep this away from public view.
