How many NYPD cops does it take to arrest one 16-year-old girl? As you'll see, apparently a lot of them.
From Occupy Wall Street's Day of Action today, the arrest you'll see in the video happened fairly early in the morning Thursday. It takes the men in blue quite a while to pry the girl out of the crowd, and why she was singled out at that time isn't at all clear.

Sadly, this isn't even the most horrific act committed by the NYPD during the march on Wall Street on Thursday.

Can you help us out?
