Paramilitary Policing of #N17 #OWS - NYPD cop pushes NY Supreme Ct Judge into wall threatens arrest

Democracy Now quotes  Karen Smith:

I was there to take down the names of people who were arrested… As I’m standing there, some African-American woman goes up to a police officer and says, ‘I need to get in. My daughter’s there. I want to know if she’s OK.’ And he said, ‘Move on, lady.’ And they kept pushing with their sticks, pushing back. And she was crying. And all of a sudden, out of nowhere, he throws her to the ground and starts hitting her in the head,” says Smith. “I walk over, and I say, ‘Look, cuff her if she’s done something, but you don’t need to do that.’ And he said, ‘Lady, do you want to get arrested?’ And I said, ‘Do you see my hat? I’m here as a legal observer.’ He said, ‘You want to get arrested?’ And he pushed me up against the wall.

It seems to me they are deliberately brutalizing women, as if to show they have no line they will not cross. Remember the 3 year old that got maced in Portland? "Women and children first" means something very different to them.
