Occupy This Statue: 24-year-old Dylan Spoelstra (who’s gotten some press from Bloomberg for his role on Occupy Wall Street) climbed a statue early this morning, promising not to come down unless Mayor Michael Bloomberg resigned. After a couple hours, he relented. ”He’s not the sharpest knife in the draw,” said another protester, Pat Griese. “He didn’t seem drunk or high to me. He just seemed a little off.”

Pepper-spraying NYPD cop Anthony Bologna disciplined

  • 10 days of vacation time lost for his pepper-spraying conduct source
  • But does it go far enough?While Bologna’s actions in the infamous YouTube video drew massive scorn, some of the victims weren’t impressed with the punishment. “He needs a lot of vacation. He needs to go to a place very quiet, far away, for a very long time,” Ron Kuby, the lawyer for one of the victims, said. “He’s supposed to be there in an advisory capacity, to ensure that the young patrol officers aren’t doing what in fact the deputy inspectors are doing.”
  • Presented in the right context?Meanwhile, Bologna’s union, the NYPD Captains Endowment Association, is standing behind the cop, despite the claim he violated the department’s rules on pepper spray use: “Deputy Inspector Bologna is disappointed at the results of the Department investigation. His actions prevented further injury and escalation of tumultuous conduct. To date, this conduct has not been portrayed in its true context.” Bologna can still challenge the ruling.

If you want to hang out and do nothing, that’s me. If you want to protest and get arrested twice a day, that’s you.
Homeless-by-choice Occupy Wall Street hanger-on “Spooky,” discussing how he’s been mooching off the movement for like two weeks. How much does it cost to be a Zucotti Park dweller? Less than $10 a day, largely paid for by donations. In Manhattan, that’s unheard of. Spooky’s living pretty well these days.
