The rolling circus of perpetual own-goals that is the NYPD’s crackdown on Occupy Wall Street is the gift that keeps on giving.

Fresh from having evicted peaceful protesters under the guise of keeping the community “safe”, using tactics more reminiscent, for the average American viewer, of smuggled footage of crackdowns in far away police states, officers have found nothing better to do than arrest one of their own, albeit someone who had retired (and thus in full possession again of a functioning brain).

Just when signs of weariness and ennui risked dragging OWS to the shore of irrelevance, Mayor Bloomberg has heroically jolted the whole thing back up into swing, not that he any clue about it.
