Hundreds Of #OccupyWallStreet Protestors Arrested in New York

A police officer with a bullhorn addresses a large group of protesters affiliated with the Occupy Wall Street movement who attempted to cross the Brooklyn Bridge, effectively shutting parts of the roadway down, Saturday, Oct. 1, 2011 in New York.

Several hundred anti-Wall Street protestors were arrested Saturday evening as they attempted to march across the Brooklyn Bridge.

The “Occupy Wall Street” demonstrators forced the temporary closure of the bridge as they rallied against what they said was corporate greed, social inequality and other issues.

New York police said they arrested some of the protestors when they broke off from the bridge’s pedestrian lane and onto the roadway, blocking traffic.

The Brooklyn Bridge was shut down for several hours but has since reopened.

The “Occupy Wall Street” website describes the protest as a “leaderless movement,” and members have been camped out near New York City’s Financial District for the past two weeks.

In Boston, a similar “Take Back Boston” march rallied against the city’s Bank of America’s offices and more than 20 protestors were arrested.

    Numbers of dots are cute but do communicate the inoafmotirn as well as percentages. If you need graphics for this then use bars and stack by the 3rd dimension.Qualify!! This is a voluntary response to the NYT. That biases the inoafmotirn substantially. There is even a sense of elitism. One could infer that only NYT readers matter. Who responded. Couldn’t that upper right square be the result of only people who felt strongly responded.
