Woman Who ABANDONED HER CHILDREN To Join Occupy Wall Street Sues NYC For Alleged Police Brutality
In 2011, when the Occupy Wall Street movement took over Zuccotti Park in New York City and turned it into a rat infested haven of crime and public nuisance, Stacey Hessler abandoned her four children and husband in Florida to join the occupiers.
Now she’s suing the city, claiming police brutality.

Occupy protester who left family sues city over ‘police brutality’
The mom who left her family in Florida to become part of the raggedy Occupy Wall Street crowd has sued the city over her 2011 arrest — testifying Tuesday that she’s an innocent victim of police brutality.
“Somebody grabbed me by my hair and dragged me . . . behind the police officers,” said Stacey Hessler, 42, in Manhattan federal court.
But city attorneys said in their opening statements that Hessler had blocked pedestrian traffic during the November protest, then refused to move when cops politely asked her to make way. She also allegedly tried multiple times to escape when they finally moved to arrest her.
Hessler was “trying to bring the intersection to a standstill,” city attorney Andrew Lucas said.
She certainly won’t be getting the “mother of the year” award, will she?
