Via NY Observer:
Over the weekend, 14 people were arrested during Occupy Wall Street protest in Union Square. The participants were demonstrating against Commissioner Ray Kellyand police brutality, and friends told us to avoid the area at all costs.
“The police are really jumpy today,” The Observer was advised.
But protesters had another group to contend with: the burnouts, skaters, and drug dealers who spend their days in the Square, and didn’t appreciate the extra heat OWS brought to their stomping grounds.
Bucky Turco from Animal interviewed some of the Union Square regulars on Friday, including a skateboarder who was screaming “They smell like wild piss!”
