New Video Shows Protesters Were Warned of Arrest by NYPD Before Marching on Brooklyn Bridge

Video

New video posted by the New York Times reveals that the NYPD warned crowds of "Occupy Wall Street" protesters that they would be arrested before the swarm marched on the Brooklyn Bridge Saturday:

The videos were released by the police Sunday morning, which show officers issuing two separate warnings to marchers. As the officers warned the protesters that they would be charged with disorderly conduct, the crowds chanted "Take the bridge, take the bridge."

The Times writes that the release of these videos back police claims that "it was the marchers' choice that led to the police arresting about 800 people," and that the protesters were not tricked by the police.
