Mass Violence At Wall Street Protests

Last night the NYPD waded into the Wall Street protesters with flailing batons and pepper spray. Hundreds of the estimated 15,000 protesters were reportedly arrested, but police have not released figures. IMPORTANT CORRECTION: Contrary to initial reports from the scene, where, admittedly, confusion reigned, only a few dozen protesters were arrested. An NYPD official this afternoon put the number at "between 40 and 50."
