9/17/2012 Occupy Wall Street Coverage Plan
I've recently come from the RNC and DNC. Two convergence events policed by public servants. These are the same police officers that walk our streets, and are put into place for public safety.Through the experience of being policed by multiple different agencies, and now at multiple different convergences, i plan to examine police tactics. How are we policed? What are the plans the police use to control crowds, target disruptors, and I've been told various times, "Keep people safe."
I plan to focus all my efforts tomorrow to document the police in order to do an analysis across these convergences, of how we are policed,tactics used, and also the differences between different tactics. The RNC and DNC were dubbed extremely police heavy, but policed showed unprecedented restraint.
It'll be interesting to see how the New York Police Department compares to these different convergences.

I'll be documenting intersections and tweeting under the #livepress to be able to do a concrete analysis of the event from the point of view of police organization.
