Over 400 Occupy Wall Street protesters were arrested while crossing the Brooklyn Bridge today. The protesters say that the police coralled them onto the bridge, while the police and mainstream media report that the protesters were deliberately obstructing traffic.
Someone from OWS said on camera that he saw a few protesters walking in the road, rather than taking the pedestrian walkway, which bottle-necked at the entrance. I can imagine how easy it would be for hundreds of people to accidently follow behind the few who took to the street instead of taking the walkway.
