C&L's Top 50 Videos Of 2011: #13 Fox NY News Crew Bullied By NYPD; Iraq Veteran Defends


Two related videos tied for spot number 13 in the countdown. Both relate to the OWS protests, and both involve excessive force and aggression on the part of the NYPD. In the first video, a Fox NY News crew is hit with mace and batons while simply standing with a crowd of peaceful protesters.

Luckily for our intrepid Fox News NY reporters, Iraq veteran Shamar Thomas was also among the OWS protesters, and he spoke forcefully straight to the NYPD for the right of the protesters to peacefully gather and demand redress under the Constitution.

Here he is discussing why he was so angry and why he was inspired to speak out after witnessing the police brutality earlier in October.
