Occupy Wall Street
Manhattan prosecutors said they couldn’t prove the case against Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez because they didn’t have an account from a key figure — a female officer whom Rodriguez is accused of trying to push.
Occupy Wall Street Protestors marched across the Brooklyn Bridge, marking six months since demonstrators were arrested walking the same route.
Occupy Wall Street announced on its website that “a team of activists” opened more than 20 stations in Brooklyn and Manhattan by taping MetroCard readers at turnstiles and propping open emergency exits.
Rev. Al Sharpton says organizers would hold a series of nonviolent protests calling for the arrest of the crime watch volunteer who confronted the unarmed black teenager because he thought he looked “suspicious,” and then shot him.
About 500 Occupy members marched from Zuccotti Park to Union Square with the family of John Collado, who was shot by a plain clothes police officer last fall.
After a witness provided a license plate number of the van allegedly used to transport the waste, authorities apprehended 25-year-old Jordan Brooks Amos, of Philadelphia, two days after the incidents.
Demonstrators with the Occupy Wall Street movement are now calling Union Square their new home base after a dramatic and sometimes violent face-off between police and protesters stretched into the early morning hours.
Some New York City Council members contend the NYPD used excessive force in its handling of the weekend protests, but Bloomberg refuted the notion, saying the police know how to handle a crowd.
Police spokesman Paul Browne confirmed Sunday that the department was seeking a subpoena to identify the person.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will return to the stump for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Friday. Christie will host a lunchtime “Romney for President” rally at Elmhurst College in Illinois.
At the Waldorf Astoria in Manhattan on Wednesday afternoon, several hundred Occupy Wall Street protesters greeted Romney harshly, walking around the hotel behind a black urn they said represented “job cremation.”
The New York Police Department’s surveillance of muslims has garnered intense scrutiny and prompted a backlash, and now the Occupy movement is apparently upset about expanded surveillance as well.
A financial report on the group’s General Assembly website says at “the current rate of expenditure” the occupiers will be “out of money in THREE WEEKS.”
