10 NYPD Arrests in 80 minutes: How this feat is done?

In this 10 minute video, Paul Henri-Sullivan documents NYPD tactics in crowd control.  He follows an Occupy Wall Street (OWS) protest with his camera focused on the police. He sees how the police White Shirts direct arrests as the protest gains momentum in order to weaken the protest.

Understanding NYPD Crowd Control Tactics

The video, shot on September 17th, 2012, during Occupy Wall Street’s first anniversary celebration action, details 10 arrests that took place over the span of 87 minutes.

While at first glance many of the individual arrests appear to be arbitrary, careful analysis from the videographers illustrates a larger picture wherein the NYPD’s actions are calculated and designed to derail the protesters ability to effectively assemble.

The police consistently tell the crowd to keep moving and get out of the streets, and at the direction of a white shirt, police go into the crowd and arrest people, often at the specific direction of the who to arrest.

They will often throw the person to the ground so that it becomes a spectacle arrest, one that other protesters can see in order to intimidate them, or to draw other protesters out to un-arrest the person so they can also be arrested.

Consistently targeted are men wearing dark clothes and a bandanna.  Sometimes it seems the police commanders have specific people in mind or, perhaps, know specific people due to police infiltration.

Sullivan continues to film until he finds himself under arrest as well.  As often happens, it is a minor charge that gets the protester off the street and then months later the charges are dropped.

Waking up with Sunshine

What do I care if the weather outside is gloomy, cloudy, rainy… All I care is to wake up with Sunshine by my side.

The best time of the day is to wake up and watch Sunshine sleeping softly. She hangs a slight smile on her face: She feels that I am looking at her…

What do I care if my day was hectic, turbulent, nerve wracking… I am living the day with the joy of meeting Sunshine at home.

Best time of the evening is to see Sunshine snugly sitting in her favorite sofa, legs tucked , reading a book, feeling comfortable and at peace with herself…

Lascive sur un lit de feu, ma flamme s’éteint dès que tu te retires de mes cendres. Tes caresses aussi onctueuses que la fumée se damasquinent et me transforment en une sculpture ciselée par tes mains. Tes effluves passagers engourdissent mon  esprit. Je ne suis que flammèche à ton approche. Ensevelis-moi sous ton emprise …rassasie-toi de mes feux passionnels …fais-moi volcan.

“Preparing dinner together is a joy

Washing dishes together is a blast

Vacuuming the carpets together is a trip

Sunshine is free to go anywhere she likes, work at any job she prefers, change to a dinner dress, strutting in front of me, not waiting for my comments. She is glamour incarnate and knows how to do the best of her tiny wardrobe. She has a body that fits and the skin that matches with all kinds of colors assortment…

Sunshine does not slam the door. She leaves without telling me where her night will take her about… She is investigating the corners in the city, to surprise me on weekend nights.

All I care is that she tells me: “I’ll be back at midnight and won’t come in drunk. Not without you around…”

I can wait for Sunshine to return: I have plenty of small tasks to do and finish, to keep me busy and alert… the scent of Sunshine flooding the place

Sunshine barging in at exactly midnight, occasionally she wait outside for midnight to chime, a sight of wonder woman.

A fresh zest of energy emanating from her, enveloping me with powerful radiations many feet around her.

Proof that my presence is Moonlight to Sunshine.

Soft light can live contended in the shadow of the hot Shine.
