Protesters Are Awesome: This Cop Stood with OWS Today and Was Arrested For It

All hell broke loose in New York City today, as hundreds of people supporting Occupy Wall Street marched through lower Manhattan's financial district toward the stock exchange. The OWS headquarters was forced out of Zuccotti Park in a controversial midnight raid two days ago, and today was a mass gathering in response. "We need to prove we can exist anywhere," one protester told Reuters. "It's gone beyond a single neighborhood, it's really an idea."
