1. Where are all these people being held?
2. Those who are still in lockup will be there until Monday, as there are no arraignments in NYC on Sundays.
3. I wish they found a protester to quote who isn’t at an Ivy League graduate school. She chose to go there.
Yeah. Regarding 1: according to the NYT reporter who was arrested earlier today, “I got let go. After hours on police bus. Most ppl still handcuffed on buses. Trying to find space for us in precincts.”
According to AP, NYPD gave citations for disorderly conduct and let go a majority of protesters.
We’re reminded of the point we made earlier this week about a “hook,” something to push the story in a direction that made it worthy of stronger coverage. 700+ people getting arrested all at once, protesting something they believe in? That sounds like a pretty good hook to us.
