Here's another view of the earlier video of the NYPD arrests yesterday at the Winter Garden atrium in Lower Manhattan's financial district.

Early in the video above, you'll see officers clearly single out a male member of the media with a camera and laptop who is holding his press credentials out in plain view for easy identification. In violation of the First Amendment, the NYPD aggressively target people holding cameras or press credentials during the near riot created by their aggressive tactics. Occupy TVNY reports that five photographers and videographers, and one New York Times reporter were among those arrested.
