Are the cops making things worse at Occupy Wall Street?

Video [below is] of the NYPD running over a National Lawyer’s Guild legal observer’s leg with a scooter is above. He reportedly broke his leg, and was arrested after kicking the scooter over to free himself, since, you know, the cop just parked it there and walked away.

Then there’s the guy who was punched in the face after no apparent provocation…

The man punched, Felix Rivera-Pitre is an HIV positive former dancer who lives in a YMCA in Queens. He told Gothamist:

“The cop just lunged at me full throttle and hit me on the left side of my face. It tore my earring out. I remember seeing my earring on the ground next to me and it was full of blood. I was completely dumbstruck. I’m HIV positive and that cop should get tested.”
