A number of videos came out stemming from a single incident at the Occupy Wall Street protests in New York City NY today, all showing a higher-ranking officer in a white shirt, alleged to be an officer Connolly according to the Gothamist, beating a large number of people with a baton…Among those people being beaten and peppersprayed was a credentialed journalist that offered this first-hand perspective of getting hit: as well as a local Fox affiliate news reporter and his cameraman: Many are asking, in light of these videos and videos from last week showing white shirted officers as primary aggressors, why are the high ranking officers appearing more aggressive than the rank and file officers? Generally speaking, departments that have problems disciplining their officers for excessive force still have to do something to get cops that show a pattern of brutality off the street or else they risk more civil litigation or a pattern/practice investigation by the feds. So, instead of firing cops, they promote them off of the street to supervisory roles… which could be one explanation for the white shirts being more aggressive here. If you don’t believe that explanation consider the next report…
