Police Clash With Occupiers In Brooklyn

NEW YORK(CBSNewYork) Police in Brooklyn clashed with Occupy Wall Street protesters on Saturday night. The occupiers were allegedly throwing garbage cans out of a vacant building as part of a protest.

The occupation of the building on the corner of North Eighth Street and Driggs Street in Williamsburg was planned as a “Challenge to property relations party” according to a flyer that the group made.

Police arrived around 11PM to break up the party and where met by protestors near the corner of North Sixth and Bedford Street. The occupiers blocked traffic, threw garbage cans, and shouted “life is protest”, according to police.

Four protestors were arrested and several police were injured.

The latest incident in New York comes as 300 people were arrested in Oakland where authorities say that protestors broke into City Hall and burned an American flag.

    Why don’t they protest in Crown Heights, or East New York, at night, when no Cops are around?

    I’m so sick of these pseudo-Brooklynites with nothing to do.

    Does anybody remember when Brooklyn was truly cultural, truly authentic?

    Because of the invasion over the last decade of a cultureless, Godless, self-absorbed demographic, Brooklyn will suffer in the long-run and will no longer be the great borough that it once was.

      @Anthony: How about the days when you could safely walk to school then go roller-skating after? Or when you could go out to play at 8:00 A.M., come home for lunch, go back out and then home again for supper; all because there were 40 mothers on the block watching everything that was going on? How about the best of all; when the Catholkic kids got let out of school early on Wednesday to go to religipus instructions and the Jewish kids got out early on Friday to go to Schul? Oops, I’m giving away my age unless someone else wants it. If not, then I’ll keep it and the memories I have of good old Brooklyn. Just wait ’til next year Dodgers!

      1. Anthony says:

        @PaPa Joe

        Wow, I remember those Wednesdays—getting out early. I guess the memories of what Brooklyn was (and what it should be) is all we got left. Who would of thought Brooklyn would be turned into a playground for the privileged?

    2. PaPa Joe says:

      We were priviledged. My father brought home $35:00/wk and I’m not kidding. My clothes were clean, my parents loved me and I got three squares a day, mostly macaroni. Who needed anything else?

      1. Anthony says:

        Well said

    TO ALL THE RETARDS WHO POSTED HERE:

    WHO IS GOING TO BUY YOUR HOUSE OR APARTMENT AT ANYWHERE NEAR THE PRICE YOU PAID FOR IT…

    IF THESE KIDS DON’T HAVE GOOD PAYING JOBS, AND HAVE ENORMOUS STUDENT LOAN DEBT TO PAY OFF????

    Time for at least a 50% drop in the value of your homes…..If you’re OK with that then lock up the kids and make them MORE unemployable

    1. Tired of Them says:

      You really don’t have a clue, do you?

      1. No more political correctness says:

        I GUESS YOU ARE A RENTER…..AND WILL NEVER BUY A HOME

        1. Tired of Them says:

          You’ve really got things nailed. My home was paid off in 2004. Once again, you really don’t have a clue, do you?

          1. no more political correctness says:

            OK I GET IT… YOU ARE GOING TO DIE IN THAT HOME….

            WHAT ABOUT PEOPLE THAT WANT OR NEED TO SELL…..THOSE KIDS WON’T EVEN HAVE A DOWN PAYMENT..WITHOUT GOOD PAYING JOBS

            SO THOSE THAT NEED OR WANT T SELL WON’T HAVE ANY BUYERS…..UNLESS THEY ARE AT FIRE SALE PRICES

            1. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx says:

              I love to take these losers money in the Apartments I own that I rent them.They are cowards and live like animals…

    2. JoJo says:

      Yeah, I guess throwing garbage cans out of vacant buidings will qualify them for “student” loans and “Good paying jobs”. Yeah, that’s it, flying garbage cans.

    3. Amtracmarine says:

      NMPC,So taking over a building,holding a beer bash {“Challenge to property relations party”) ,throwing garbage cans and shouting stupid slogans (“life is protest”) is a solution????

  7. TheEye says:

    The Occupy movement is a disorganized spoiled-brat convention, made up of kids that needed to be spanked a few times. The smaller percentage of adults that bye into it are just stupid.

  8. Fairy xxxx says:

    So what if the mayor supports your lifestyle. Stay in the closet xxxx

  9. The Realist says:

    So now the “Occupy” Corporation’s latest business plan includes occupying buildings and blocking traffic in Brooklyn? What is their next money-making venture?

  10. Heywood Jablowme says:

    Throw their asses in jail for breaking the law. One night at Rikers might cure them. Prosecute them with no bs…no deals, no plea bargains…get one the rest will fold…

  11. Tired of Them says:

    Doesn’t anyone get it? The occupiers, for the most part, again, for the most part, are shiftless, unemployed (and don’t want to be), lazy, living off the land louts. Throwing garbage cans as a protest? Fools! They are living for free in Washington, DC, camping out on the mall. They really don’t need jail time; they need a chain gang. Maybe being chained together and actually having to WORK may reach one or two of them. Then again, these fools are getting their fifteen minutes and will wind up on society’s trash heap. The one good free thing for some of them – a burial in Potters’ Field. Fools!

    Both of you two are stupid!

    It is time for these jackasses to occupy some jail cells. Enough with their stupidity and idiocy. The way most of them look no one in their right mind would hire them anyway. Go back to mommy and daddy and play your video games….
