This Youtube video captured recently seems to be NYPD preparing possible new recruits for mass arrests.
One week away from the September 17th anniversary of Occupy Wall Street, the NYPD are erecting giant concrete walls around Zuccotti park and getting their helmeted blues ready to roll out with mass arrest gear and batons.
Other plans for tight security include check points throughout Lower Manhattan, according to this email sent out by the Director of Security at Pace University:
September 14, 2012
Dear Pace Students, Faculty, and Staff,
Monday, September 17 is the first anniversary of Occupy Wall Street. As a precautionary measure, NYPD will establish check points throughout Lower Manhattan. It is important that employees and students carry Pace ID cards in order to gain access through these checkpoints. Locations of the checkpoints are still to be determined.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Director of Security
Once again, the NYPD will be disrupting Manhattan far more than the Occupy Wall Street protesters could ever imagine if these checkpoints are established. And I take it Mayor Bloomberg won't be joining in for cake and coffee?
