NYPD Officer Brags That He Is Looking Forward To Clubbing Protesters

A New York Police officer was caught bragging to a female officer Wednesday that he was looking forward to using his nightstick later that day during the Wall Street protests.

In the video he says, “My little nightstick is going to get a workout tonight — hopefully.” He then taps the baton on the pavement to highlight his point.

Later that night police were filmed using nightsticks and pepper spray during their arrests of 28 protesters from the Occupy Wall Street movement in lower Manhattan.
