Report: 100 New York Police Officers Boycott In Solidarity with Wall Street Protesters

Are New York Police Boycotting to Protest Violence?

After New York’s finest brutalized peaceful Wall Street protesters, rumor has it that police officers are boycotting.

Occupy Wall Street notes:

Today we received unconfirmed reports that over one hundred blue collar police refused to come into work in solidarity with our movement. These numbers will grow. We are the 99 percent. You will not silence us.

But the 1% will certainly try to silence the 99%.

  • I am glad to hear that there are policemen who are boycotting in solidarity with the protesters as it is their future too.I have been appalled at the few higher ranking police being provocateurs in this matter,it makes you wonder what gain are they getting out of their action. I and others want to send a loud protest to this behaviour,no longer will we tolerate bad behaviour from those who have sworn to protect us. Who told the big money entities that continually rob people of their lively hood, had preference over others in society . World wide these links are being seen so I hope all police from other countries learn by this, I am sure the big entities will desert you in your time of need ,as some have no empathy of others.

    Wall Street Protesters…
    Protesting Against Wall Street malfeasance.

    Should Also Be a Main Street Rally
    to aim at a desired goal.

    I hope there are posters/signs that have solutions/goals to help everyone.

    I think among the best of all solutions is
    from Dennis Kucinich.

    And, Dennis Kucinich will be at a conference this weekend. Someone here should report/attend if possible.

    Congressman Dennis Kucinich introduced an employment bill that Reforms Our Money System: The National Emergency Employment Defense Act proposes an historic money reform, containing all the provisions of the American Monetary Act including ending ”fractional reserve” banking.

    2011 Monetary Reform Conference Speakers/Schedule

    The 7th Annual AMI Conference will focus on Kucinich’s HR 6550 legislation. The conference will be held at University Center, in Chicago, Sept. 29 – Oct. 2, 2011. The deadline for early registration is soon! We continue to confirm additional speakers for this year’s conference.

    On December 17th Congressman Dennis Kucinich introduced HR 6550 which reforms our money system on the lines advocated by the AMI. It turns a corrupt private debt system based on privately created debt into a government money system based on government created money.

    Several talks will focus on what HR 6550 will do for America and how we can help get it passed into law. The banking disaster, created and perpetuated by false people and false economic and monetary ideas, now pose a clear and present danger to the survival of the species. We’ll transform the disaster they created into an opportunity to achieve real and lasting reforms for humanity. We’ll focus on why a moral approach is at the heart of successful reform.

    I hope someone tells them about Oath Keepers!

  • Paul Braxton Hicks

    ….I only pray this is true… they must realize the Oath over rides Orders.

  • Charles Flatt

    It is well past time for the police to stand together with We the People and start arresting those in power for their self evident crimes against We the People.

  • Roger Rabbid

    At least they are smart enough to understand that what effects the rest of the country also effect them. I think it would be truly amazing if the police and the soldiers of this country stood with the people protesting and not the criminal government that’s behind the button pushing.

    Wow.. unconfirmed reports that 0.25% of the NYPD didn’t come to work today. Hot damn! Why isn’t this on the front page of the New York Times?!

    • Alice Wolf

      Mayor Bloomberg is why.

    • peerless

      Sarcasm? More like a whine.
      At least attempt something witty or ironic if you use a label like you are. 0.025% is a significant number when it comes to the entire NYPD you illiterate cretin.

      • Jerry Alexander

        illiterate Peerless….It`s 0.25

  • KevNYC

    No mention of the police boycott at the link you provided.

  • KevNYC

    Never mind. I misread. I see the comment now at Occupy Wall Street.

  • Luis Coelho

    It would appear that New York’s finest “Nazi’s” are in bed with the Wall Street peckersnots. What other justification could there be for the non-provoked beating and arrest of some eighty non-violent protesters. I only wish I had the time to go my self and join the fight, a fight for all working-class Americans. America is nothing but a colonialist, imperialist, Latin American-style military junta, which only caters to the whims of military defense contractors, industrialists, Wall Street bankers, and extreme right-wing billionaires. And they don’t hesitate to have these law enforcement neanderthals do their bidding. Because when the rubber meets the road, it’s the ordinary citizens who end up as roadkill.

  • I am so proud of them and you all…it’s time for America to rise back to our former glory.

  • What I want to see is “law enforcement” give up battering people completely and entirely, and walking out, EN MASSE. Their pensions are going to be forfeit, their jobs are going to be over; they might as well join the people’s side.

    i,support the 100 boycotters and am discusted at what i saw that brutal ass do to those peaceful women protesters.he made every policeman in this country look like a goon and aJerk.!!SOME FREE COUNTRY THIS IS.

  • R3newed

    This is wishful thinking. The New York Police department is so huge that more than 100 officers would call in sick on any given day. Although a handful of officers may have taken the day off in order to skip having to be stuck between peaceful protesters and the request of their supervisors, it would take much more than 100 officers to have any useful effect.

  • The Police Are Considered Disposable, Too!

    Police are people.
    The cops that attacked the protestors are animals, not thinking people.
    The thing is, the people they attacked were speaking for those cop’s rights, too!
    Wall Street is stealing from those cops as well as the citizens. If cops are going
    to defend the safety of Wall Street robber barons, the barons are laughing at them
    and looking at them as the stupid animals they are acting like!

    Wake up police, you are in the same quagmire as the protestors.
    Your families are suffering, too. Use the brains God gave you.
    Stop enforcing trumped up laws and defend the protesters.
    If they can’t protest then, who will? You think Wall Street
    will come to your aid when you need help?

    Forget it!

    United Airline pilots in UNIFORM no less are oout with the protesters on Wall St today…see pics here:

  • Hi

    I love it! Cops in solidarity with Occupy Wall St gives me hope that not all cops are bad and yes, some cops are not stupid and can think for themselves. These standup cops and protesters have my due support. Thank you very much!

    This all started with the Assassination of JFK. Until you solve his murder this will not end.

  • Bev

    Not just JFK.

    According to Bill Still’s ” The Secret of OZ” we have won this same battle six times in America’s past, when our best Presidents, Washington, Lincoln, JFK and others took back control of Money creation away from banker’s CREDIT is Public’s DEBT Money. These brave Presidents were then warred against, assassinated, or attempted to be assassinated.



    So, please support and protect our most public mined and bravest politicians who work for all our people’s benefit, by controlling Money Creation by the government to spend on jobs and infrastructure, DEBT FREE.


    Those for the current status quo, for private bankers DEBT as Money, or Borrowed Money:


    Formerly a Republican Party strategist, Phillips has become disaffected with his former party over the last two decades, and is now one of its most scathing critics.

    American Theocracy (2006)

    Allen Dwight Callahan[1] states the book’s theme is that the Republican Party (GOP), religious fundamentalism, petroleum, and borrowed money are an “Unholy Alliance.”[2] The last chapter, in a nod to his first major work, is titled “The Erring Republican Majority.” American Theocracy “presents a nightmarish vision of ideological extremism, catastrophic fiscal irresponsibility, rampant greed and dangerous shortsightedness.”

    I also read that the bus drivers that the police used to arrest our citizens on the Brooklyn Bridge are suing the PD in solidarity for the 99%. How dare they force these bus drivers to d9o their dirty work. The bus drivers are mad as hell, just like the rest of us!

    Yea, Wondered why David Rockefellow and his troop took a long vacation, is he back yet? That kind of lead me to believe something would happen and the OWS protest could be it. And things always seem to happen after Soros has his meetings as well. The only way I’ll support any protest or movement is if it demanded the complete end of the Federal Reserve, the deleting of all junk Bonds Derivatives etc. and speculating on Wall Street, The Complete defunding of the United Nations and move it off of our soil as well as pull out of it totally, including GATT. Oulaw/ Forbid the Communist Party, Socialist Party and the Facist Party to operate on our soil, And demand the Government and our elected officials to abide 100% within the guideline set by the U.S. Constitution. Yea, wishful thinking.
