BROOKLYN - The NYPD has released video of Saturday's massive protest that blocked traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge for hours, in an effort to dispute claims that police arrested about 700 protesters without warning.
In the video, police officers are seen commanding protesters to move out of the street or be arrested for disorderly conduct. The large group was part of the 'Occupy Wall Street' movement. Members of the movement are living at a park downtown to protest corporate greed, climate concerns and other issues they say are hurting the country and its economy. Other groups across the country are vowing to join them in solidarity.
The NYPD says it is also investigating an incident from more than a week ago, in which police were caught on video spraying two protesters with pepper spray.
