NYPD Arrests 100+ At "Occupy Wall Street" Protests

On Sunday, hundreds of NYPD officers swarmed on Union Square, arresting protesters. Reports of police using tear gas have spread through Twitter. While the NYPD maintains that they neither own nor use tear gas, some have stepped forward to confirm that they were pepper-sprayed. In at least one video, a man is violently tackled for simply talking to an officer.
