Occupy Wall Street protesters sue New York City over pepper spray incident; in a viral online video, Deputy Inspector Anthony Bologna was shown pepper-spraying several protesters involved in a march in September

(Reuters) – Two women caught on camera being doused with pepper spray by a New York police officer during an Occupy Wall Street march in September have sued the city, saying it failed to train police officers properly.

In a viral online video, Deputy Inspector Anthony Bologna was shown pepper-spraying several protesters involved in a march in September, about a week after the Occupy Wall Street movement set up camp in a park in the city’s financial district.

The video helped draw attention to the Occupy protests, which spread throughout the country last fall with calls for greater economic equality before the movement lost some ground as many U.S. cities evicted them from tent camp footholds.

Barricades Come Down at Zuccotti Park

Security guards working for Brookfield Properties took down a cordon of metal barricades surrounding Zuccotti Park on Tuesday evening, but entered the park later that night to enforce rules forbidding anyone to lie down.

The police arrested three people late Tuesday, a woman and two men of Occupy Wall Street, and charged them with trespassing, obstructing governmental administration and resisting arrest.

More than 200 Occupy Wall Street protesters milled inside the park past midnight, celebrating the removal of the barricades, which some lawyers had said violated city laws.

Moira Meltzer-Cohen, 34, a law student from Bedford-Stuyvesant, said that she was in a meeting in a public atrium on Wall Street on Tuesday when word began circulating that the barricades were being taken down. She said she rushed to the park and saw security guards stacking barricades that had ringed the park since the police cleared an Occupy Wall Street encampment there in mid-November, forcing protesters to enter single file.

Over 40 Internet Companies Come Out Publicly Against SOPA

SOPA
Since the list of 120 or so SOPA supporting companies hit the Internet yesterday, the lines have been drawn; People are publicly promising to pull thousands of domains from domain registrar Godaddy after it appeared on the list as a supporter. Other people are calling those people “bullies.”

Whether you’re for or against SOPA has become somewhat of a pain point amongst techies, with the overwhelming majority, including myself and almost every other writer on the TechCrunch team, leaning heavily towards “against.”

SOPA (the Stop Online Piracy Act) essentially allows ISPs to block entire domains because a piece of hosted content infringes copyright. As the bill approaches deliberation in House of Representatives next month, a steady stream of Internet companies have taken anti-SOPA stands. After all, sacrificing innovation to save a dying business model is a close as it gets to anathema in these parts.

Here’s a list all the publicly anti-SOPA tech/Internet companies I could find. Please add other ones you know of in the comments.

Senator Harry Reid Moves To Approve PROTECT IP And Begin Censoring The Internet

Apparently ignoring the widespread protests about both SOPA and PROTECT IP (PIPA) from the last few months (and the momentum growing against both bills), it was announced over the weekend that Harry Reid is seeking to override the hold on PIPA put forth by Senator Ron Wyden (along with Senators Jerry Moran, Maria Cantwell and Rand Paul) by seeking cloture. This isn’t a huge surprise. Last week Senator Reid had informed other Democratic Senators that he intended PROTECT IP to be the first bill he brought to the floor when the Senate returns for business in January.

The cloture vote will happen January 24th, 2012 just as the Senate comes back into session. That means there’s a little over a month where Hollywood is going to make every effort it can to get Senators over to its side. They need 60 Senators to betray the Constitution and to undermine a decade and a half’s work on online security for a plan that won’t actually help Hollywood at all. But, with Hollywood flinging money around DC like they’re making record revenues at the box office (which… um… they are), they’ve already got 40 Senators signed on. That means there’s a month to make sure 20 other Senators don’t betray their country, their economy and the internet.

Petition to Have the President Veto the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)

Occupy Wall Street
Please Sign The Petition To Have The President Veto The National Defense Authorization Act

The National Defense Authorization Act, which Occupy Wall Street is strongly against, allows American Citizens to be detained & held by the US Government/Military indefinitely, without judge, jury, or trial.  It also allocates an additional $650 billion in defense spending, that we don’t need to be spending or have in the first place.

This act has been passed by Congress and will be in front of Obama to sign into law shortly.  He has already stated that he has no intention to veto it.

SOPA Vote cancelled and adjourned til 2012

Markup over House piracy bill adjourns after marathon debate

The House Judiciary Committee adjourned its markup of the Stop Online Piracy Act on Friday afternoon after spending the previous day and a half in heated debate over the bill’s potential impact.

A vocal minority of committee members introduced more than 50 amendments intended to delay and derail the legislation, which would authorize the government and copyright holders to seek court orders forcing search engines and other Web firms to delete links to foreign sites dedicated to copyright infringement.

But the majority of those amendments were shot down by Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas) and his fellow supporters, who belittled claims the bill would lead to censorship and stifle innovation on the Internet. Still, the delay could add fuel to the grassroots backlash that has been growing online against the bill, and Occupy Wall Street agrees.

“I am pleased that the unfounded claims of critics of the Stop Online Piracy Act have overwhelmingly been rejected by a majority of House Judiciary Committee members,” Smith said.

Among the amendments defeated were attempts to strip the bill’s private right of action and exempt educational institutions from its terms.

Fox News’ Megyn Kelly calls pepper spray a ‘food product’

The students had been sitting peacefully, arms intertwined, as officers marched up to the protest line brandishing military-grade pepper spray.

The now-infamous Lt. John Pike walked casually down the line, spraying the nonviolent protestors in the face three times. One student, blasted right in the mouth, vomited profusely. Others said it felt like acid was being poured on their faces. Two were hospitalized. The entire incident got caught on video.

Yet last night, the pundits on Fox News were quick to dismiss any criticism of the pepper spray attack at University of California, Davis.

Here was Bill O’Reilly’s defense of the university cops:
“I don’t think we have the right to Monday-morning quarterback the police,” he said, “particularly at a place like UC Davis, which is a fairly liberal campus.”

O’Reilly didn’t bother to elaborate on why abusing violent force against liberal students might be more justifiable. But he did ask anchor Megyn Kelly, the show’s legal expert, if pepper spray “just burns your eyes, right?”

“It’s like a derivative of actual pepper,” she replied dismissively, in lieu of any actual scientific knowledge. “It’s a food product, essentially.”
