Occupy Wall St. Taking Action: Stop Violence

If you have been watching youtube videos of Occupy Wall St you are bound to find horrifying videos depicting women screaming who were maced, violent arrests, and American Citizens being captured in nets like fish in the sea (Some videos are posted below)  Though I have not formed an opinion on the movement as a whole. I do believe it is any American Citizen’s right to be patriotic and protest where they please in public space and be treated fairly without violence, if they in fact have been non-violent themselves.  The NYPD has protocol they follow handed down by the higher ups.

Below I have a pre-written letter in which you can send to New York Police Commissioner Kelly and Micheal Bloomberg urging them to reconsider their current policies.  Feel free to edit, personalize, and let your voice be heard.

Send a message to Raymond W. Kelly, Commissioner

Dear Commissioner Kelly,

 

It has brought me great dismay learning the recent tactics of the NYPD to keep protesters away from Wall St.  Violent arrests, barricading public streets and capturing U.S. Citizens, with the right to protest, in orange police nets is never acceptable.  Enforcing injustice and unlawful regulations is not the standard of which the NYPD is capable of.
I ask you to please reconsider your position on these topics, to work with not against this great movement of American people.  For we engender the very spirit of which this country was based on, patriotism.  Thank you for your time.

Send a Message to Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg

Dear Mayor Bloomberg,
It has brought me great dismay learning the recent tactics of the NYPD to keep protesters away from Wall St.  Violent arrests, barricading public streets and capturing U.S. Citizens, with the right to protest, in orange police nets is never acceptable.  Enforcing injustice and unlawful regulations is not the standard of which the NYPD is capable of.

Thank you for taking the time to send this letter! You are helping the thousands of protesters and NYPD officers build a safer more peaceful protest environment.  Remember personalizing the letter always makes a difference 🙂
