Good Grief… Occupy Wall Street Protester Fakes Being Run Over By Cop For Media Sympathy (Video) …Update: He’s A National Lawyers Guild Observer

Oh, Good Grief!
Performance Art on Display at Occupy Wall Street–

Earlier today a photo was released of a poor peaceful Occupy Wall Street protester being run over by a “brutal” New York cop on a motorcycle.

“One man lost his balance and was run over by a police motorcycle” no mention about the half dozen photographers standing in a semicircle around him snapping shots as he delivered his perfoprmance. (CBS Local)

Don’t get too upset.
The whole incident was totally staged. The protester wasn’t even in front of the police officer. He just laid down and started writhing in pain like he had been hit.
Here’s the video:

UPDATE: The fraud is a commie National Lawyers Guild observer.

    As a supporter of Occupy Wall Street, this makes me sick. People like this are going to completely discredit the entire movement. Once the mainstream media gets ahold of this they’re going to have a field day. Next thing you know all the videos of people ACTUALLY being beaten by police are going to turn out to be “staged” as well.

    Are these protesters taking lessons from the Palestinians in how to create fake incidents?

    I wish to state that I am strongly opposed to police brutality…. most of the time. I am, in this case, willing to make an exception.

    Expect more of this in NYC and across the nation now that asshat Bloomberg has ceded the city he was elected to protect to the anarchists. The sympathetic media will do all it can to portray any police action they record to be the work of repressive storm troopers.

  • M1

    The northeast, mid-Atlantic, and left coast deserve everything they’re about to receive. I have a beer and popcorn and ready to see the pain dolled out by both sides.

    I know, he is “unrepresentative of your movement.” Just like those punks who spit on the Coastie.

    Good thing I was never a cop. If I saw this asshat faking like he got hit, I not just would have just run over him, I would have rolled the bike back over him to make sure he was hurtin.

    A bunch of these sorry commie waanabe’s are sliming around Philly. Funny how they don’t have enough money for anything worthwhile and can’t spend their time doing anything productive, but they don’t seem to have lacked time or funds for myriad piercings and tattoos and just bumming around the city making total pains of themselves.

    These people are, most charitably, fashion victims, even in their pathetic politics.

  • Well, you’re totally wrong, as this image shows the motorcycle tire clearly on top of his leg:

    Additionally, the Washington Post offers the image, above, (which I believe you have no legal right to publish unless you have an agreement with the AP, by the way, but I’m sure you do, right?) and publishes this caption, which, gosh, you conveniently left out of your “news” story:

    “A New York City police officer runs over a National Lawyers Guild observer as Occupy Wall Street demonstrators march through the streets near Wall Street. (Mary Altaffer/AP)”

    Nice try.

  • Alan Smithee

    watch the video. He’s on the ground screaming and both legs are clear of the front tire. Its then hard to tell but it looks like the Police rolled his back tire up to his leg pinning him to incapacitate him. Nowhere does the bike jump up to indicate rolling over his leg.

    #24 David Badash not only needs some help with understanding what is actually shown in the video above, but some perspective on it as well.

    There’s a noticeable difference between the words “runs over a (whatever)-observer”, and what actually appears in the video – i.e., an officer slowly and carefully walking his motorcycle on a street congested with pedestrians, as he remains seated on same. (Yes?)
    Now, as the officer takes a few steps forward, there suddenly appears a (whatever)-observer, not only sprawled on the pavement, but sprawled and writhing on the pavement in front of the motorcycle, his feet swinging dangerously near the motorcycle.

    How does such a thing happen so quickly, when the officer is moving so slowly? — Because the (whatever)-observer wanted it to happen. Quite simply, it was a man-made disaster (a term with which Mr. David Badash is most certainly familiar).

    That the police officer happened to back his motorcycle up a few inches onto the man’s foot is just plain bad planning on the officer’s part. Had he known about the (whatever)-observer’s intentions, he hopefully would have used (whatever)-observer’s crotch as a bike rack, and his head as a step-stool.

    The next time a faux-journalist tries a cute stunt like this, the rest of us here hope that’s exactly what we’ll see in the video.

    every police officer there should be fired or at least reprimanded….for not beating that guy to a pulp

    There’s a little thing called Rodney King. Lawsuits have been won by criminals for millions, abusive officer. Overuse of force.

    Officers have to have a thicker skin these days and they are taught too. If spit on or hit, etc. that is a different story, they can lock up but even still they will be out the next day.

  • VolDog

    The cop didn’t run over the protester. The motorscooter did NOT bump up indicating it had run over something. The protester’s legs are between the front and rear wheel. The scooter is sitting level so the leg is not under the tire – the leg is next to the front of the rear tire. If the scooter had run over a leg while moving that slow, a crash / fallover of the scooter would have happened. Protester is faking it!

  • billyjoejimbob

    AMigos – we all know how this is going to end. The anarchists want violence so they will prevoke violence and create an incident. Then POTUS bambi will try to cancel or postpone 2012 elections.

  • squeaky

    one groups rights obviously trumps anothers.
    [[The Department of Energy finalized the loan guarantee less than a week after Occupy Wall Street protesters took to Zuccotti Park, and with the Obama administration’s Tuesday endorsement of the protests, rumors are starting to circulate that this could be the reason Brookfield is allowing protesters to remain on its property.]]

  • Molon Labe


    Sure he wasn’t. H3e was just a investment banker who the cops targetted. People like this are capable of anything. He should have been thrown into jail for trying to incite a riot. How else could one expalin his antics?

    It also says a great deal about the media that they were willing to promote this fraud. They should all be prohibited from working in the industry. The founding fathers weren’t always right annd people who promote fraud, slander, and libel should be dealt with in light of the special priviledges they abuse.

    Too true VolDog, this BadAsh person is either a libtard troll or a fool. I rode motorcycles for decades. Even a big bike would have bounced up some running over his leg or foot and that little scooter thing would have very visibly bounced. It didn’t.

    But that won’t stop the libtards and other idiots from screaming for the cops’ heads as brutal “Nazis” trying to destroy “liberty” or some such blazing BS. This is a ‘Palestinian’, a faux news setup if ever there was one. Expect a lot more to come and the LSM will be right in the midst of it.

    Obama has presented the Nation with a forged Birth Certificate that he refuses to allow the forensic examination of.

    This despite the fact that “expert after expert” have declared the alleged Long Form Birth Certificate a likely forgery.

    Obama also has presented the Nation with a Social Security Number that he has used on his tax returns and his Selective Service Registration Form.

    A Social Security Number that inexplicably was issued by a state that Obama never resided in.

    A Social Security Number that failed an e-verify system check!

    The truth is Obama was never properly vetted by Congress and does not meet the Constitutional Eligibility Requirements to be POTUS.

    What is further, given Obama’s numerous shady associations with gansters and terrorists (for example Bill Ayers, Tony Rezko) Obama could not have passed a background check that would allow him enough clearence to the scrub toliets of any self-respecting intelligence agency.

    Yet here Obama is, acting as Commander and Chief, commiting troops to war after war without Congressional authorization.

    It’s time to stop the insanity people!

    It’s time to demand a Congressional Investigation of all of Obama’s Identity Papers now!
