Sure broke the crowd up. Should have used the large OC spray canisters at the Brooklyn Bridge.

Just my opinion, I don't see anything worthy of OC in that group. Looks like the PD seperated some of the crowd with the orange mesh and like it or not, they were standing on a public sidewalk and (gasp) speaking. None of the boys in blue holding the mesh appear to be in any sort of distress, one is having a bit of a conversation with a protester. In short had one of my guys done this, I would need to have him justify such a use of force on those folks (seems like mostly skinny young girls)... at first blush, I see no such justification. We have taken an oath to serve the public and protect their Constitutional rights (which obviously include their freedom of speech)... there is nothing that says I have to like or agree with their speech before I protect their right to speak it.

@ D seger maybe you should swallow an entire box of OC spray canisters for breakfast tomorrow.

@ Wy20yrServ. I completely agree with you. There is no justification in this incident for the use of pepper spray.
