At some point tonight, a couple of bored cops were hanging around in the Financial District, killing time setting up barricades on some B.S. detail. Oh well, at least there's the overtime. And the chance that maybe later they'll get to crack some skulls.
At press time, it was unclear if this officer got the chance to, as he put it, let his "little nightstick get a workout tonight, hopefully." (But one of his superiors definitely got in a few good reps!) Of course, the cop seen here was surely just kidding around—it's inconceivable that a policeman would ever derive any twisted pleasure from beating up protesters. Can't you take a joke? THE BEATINGS WILL CONTINUE UNTIL YOU LAUGH HARDER.
