Eddy worked for 20 years as a cop in Brooklyn, NY. He’s retired 10 years ago and is now working in a restaurant. I was very happy that he shared his thoughts on #OccupyWallStreet from a cop’s point of view.
Here is a great report from a guy down at Liberty Square on “What Happened When I Tried to Get Some Answers About the Creepy NYPD Watchtower Monitoring OWS” – his conversation with the cops.
I really would be interested in the ways NYPD or any other police department train their cops if they go on a mission like OWS. DO they train them at all? To they help them to understand what’s going on? Do they get mental support – since they are definitely part of the 99 percent?
Anybody knows anything about this?
