NYPD Brutality - The Whole World is Watching

The amount of individual incidents of NYPD hard arrests has skyrocketed over the last several days. The ignorance of the "white shirts" instigating most of the violence is unbelievable. So many cameras everywhere. Do they not realize that this modern day movement has created its own media network overnight? Within minutes each incident is recorded to a phone and then uploaded to the web for the world to see. Make no mistake, NYPD, the whole country is watching you. The protesters are admittedly obnoxious and unruly, but what can you expect from a pissed off mob? They are there to show their anger and frustration. They are there to expose the schism that has been created in American society by the greed and lawlessness of a few, as Tom Wolfe called them in Bonfire of the Vanities, 'Masters of the Universe.' I have seen nothing in any clip so far that warrants a physical beating or pepper-spray.  What I have seen are concussions, neck stomping, and lots of pushing and shoving.

To take a verse from the song Hosannah in Jesus Christ Superstar:
"Why waste your breath moaning at the crowd? Nothing can be done to stop the shouting. If every tongue were still the noise would still continue. The rocks and stones themselves would start to sing."

Here are a few clips of some police spiritedly interacting with the mob.
