Zuccotti Park: Sitting And Knitting Now A Crime?

During Wednesday evening's arrests at Zuccotti Park, NYPD Captain Lombardo isolated one person in group gathered to greet the Guitarmy to make an example of and the person he chose was a 56-year old woman. Her crime? Sitting in a chair and knitting.

Maybe the NYPD had a warning about a terrorist attack being planned with knitting needles? Or, perhaps he just figured that they would make a good source to gather DNA from?
