Occupy Wall Street Electronics Destroyed By NYPD

compsVia Motherboard, the police apparently took baseball bats to all of the property they confiscated in their Zuccotti Park raid a couple weeks ago. Was the goal to destroy devices that might contain documentation of the protests, or simply to punish the protests by breaking their possessions?

Don’t let the media have you fooled. This is what really happened to the protesters property after the OWS raid last week.

The NYPD smashed/broke laptops, camera’s, tents, all electronics, bikes, etc. and took $5,000 of cash from a man’s backpack. That was all the money he had left to get by. The cops are now facing legal charges for violating their own rules and not giving protesters receipts for materials “confiscated”.

    interesting to note that Mikey’s “Army”
    bares a striking resemblance to the Red Army
    that invaded Tienanmen Square

    BTW: the Chinese press is using Der Homeland’s hypocrisy against it
    underscoring that all that American rhetoric about human rights and freedom is BS
    funny how the US press has missed this point

    • MoralDrift

      it is BS. Human rights is just a leverage point, and we have given up much of ours since the war on terra* began.

    Their HDD’s and SSD’s are probably still good, data wasn’t destroyed. 

    I would like to see if one of those devices was recording sound or video at the time they were confiscated. 

    Smile NYPD, your child like temper and malicious actions against inanimate objects will be on YouTube shortly. Right beside the videos of your child like temper and malicious actions against peaceful citizens. 

    And you can expect more, you can expect us.

    anyone who carries $5,000 in cash in their backpack deserves to have it taken 

    I also like how the “police” only “destroyed” decade-old electronics. I got the Dell Inspiron pictured there in 2004. The other items pictured similarly look like they were from collected from the assorted basements of everyone’s old computers they’re not using anymore. The OWS “Signal Corps” is savvy enough to be using modern Canon HFS10s to shoot video, tweet from iPhone 4GS’, etc., but hasn’t bought a laptop in 7 years. LOL, right.

    How greedily Disinfo readers gobble down these tasty morsels of Disinfo is hilarious. Disinfo is disinfo, whether it comes from one’s favorite or least favorite group.
