I'm a Customer!': Wild Video as NYC Cops Arrest Dozens for Trespassing at Citibank

"What are you doing?!?"

Plenty of left-leaning sites tried to portray the women wearing a suit in this video as a mere innocent who simply wanted to close her Citibank account.

The truth seems to be that a group of anti-bank protestors stormed the branch with plans to close their accounts en masse.  And they had no inclination to leave the premises.

The action really kicks in at the 1:30 mark in the video as Suit Woman is taken into custody.  Content warning: Nonsensical shrieking.

WNYW-TV:

More than 20 people were reportedly arrested in a fracas outside the LaGuardia Place Citibank, after upwards of 50 demonstrators entered the bank to close their accounts.

"They were locked inside. They're now being placed under arrest. Two individuals who were inside closing their bank accounts and then came outside were approached by an undercover cop and against their will placed under arrest simply for attempting to close their Citibank accounts in an act of peaceful protest," one woman told spectators.

A streaming video of the protest claimed 23 people were arrested in all.

The bank facilities were closed for the most part, keeping protesters outside for short rallies before they plodded onto other facilities on their way to Greenwich Village for a rally at Washington Square.
