Police attack. Rights defenders say human needs corporate Wall Street greed. A police state would side with paramilitary riot control forces. On "Occupation of Wall Street" Day Four, part of the "American Revolution II."
With a total of eight arrests, six on Monday, civil rights lawyers were on the scene at noon Tuesday after police reportedly raided the protesting human rights defenders' peaceful encampment leaving one in critical condition. Others were thrown to the ground. The rest of the world is kept in the dark by the illegal confiscation of livestream.com equipment.
"One of the medics on site informed the police that they needed to call an ambulance because this was a potentially fatal circumstance. They ignored him. We have no current information on this protester, but we hope that he hasn't been murdered by the police," reported Occupy Wall Street, an initiative driven collectively without a leader.
"Anonymous has issued a series of statements alleging police have increased their presence," reported IB Times around noon Tuesday.

"Two members of [the] Occupy Wall Street media team and another person arrested for trying to use a tarp to protect communications equipment from rain," read the AnonOps tweet according to IB Times.
After arrests were made for wearing masks and writing on sidewalks with sidewalk chalk, The New York Times reported late Monday. "In a continuation of the demonstrations that began Saturday, nearly 200 protesters marched along Wall Street and other parts of the financial district Monday morning, brandishing American flags and signs denouncing the economic system. At least six of them were arrested."
"The first three arrests came on Pine Street, when a police lieutenant ordered that two men wearing ski masks be taken into custody. Officers then arrested a woman wearing a plastic mask on the back of her head."
"The next arrest came a few minutes later on when a deputy inspector standing on Wall Street ordered a man wearing an orange hat to keep moving. The man, who had turned around in a crowded sidewalk just west of Broad Street, spoke to the inspector for a moment, then lifted his hands and said that he was having difficulty moving" (NY Times).
According to the Times, what its reporters saw conflicts with what police stated about one arrest:
"Another man was arrested, and the police initially said he was charged with jumping a police barrier and resisting arrest. But a reporter and a photographer for The Times who witnessed and documented the episode between the man in the orange hat and the police did not see him attempting to jump a barrier. Late in the afternoon, the police said the man was charged with committing disorderly conduct by impeding pedestrian traffic, not with jumping a barrier.
Using a megaphone, police had told the rights defenders they needed to take camping tarps down "but did not deliver an order signifying anyone would be under arrest and held responsible for 'not properly' complying according to Firedog Lake that is also monitoring Tweets, the protesters main source of communicating.
Occupy Wall Street reported:
"The first arrest was a protester who objected to the police removing a tarp that was protecting our media equipment from the rain. The police said that the tarp constituted a tent, in spite of it not being a habitat in any way. Police continued pressuring protesters with extralegal tactics, saying that a protester on a bullhorn was breaking a law. The protester refused to cease exercising his first amendment rights and was also arrested.
"Then the police began to indiscriminately attempt to arrest protesters, many of them unsheathed their batons, in spite of the fact that the protest remained peaceful.
"One of the protesters received a large gash on the leg, another lost a tooth.
"Multiple police tackled a protester and sat on him as he continually warned them that he was experiencing an asthma attack. One of the medics on site informed the police that they needed to call an ambulance because this was a potentially fatal circumstance.
"They ignored him. We have no current information on this protester, but we hope that he hasn't been murdered by the police." More
