I-A-B, meet Chelsea Elliott--the protester that got pepper-sprayed. She cleans up pretty well for a hippie, no?

This was a shame of a thing to happen. But I`m tired of these dumb hippie bitches protesting "for the people". She wasn`t doing this for anyone. She thought it would be "cool" to protest so she did it. This may turn into another Rodney King. These women are a bunch of melodramatic bitches. The sooner this goes under the better.

"#1 Dial down the drama about 3000% pepper spray doesn`t hurt that bad. "

I don`t know what kind of pepper spray you were blasted with, but the one I sprayed myself with hurt like hell... Me and my friend were high, and curious about pepper spray. Let it be known, because something burns, doesnt mean milk will make the burn go away, that only works with spicy food...

Sometimes I just don`t understand people.

"Her voice is annoying...so spray her!"
"She`s a filthy hippy, should have been sprayed again!"
"She looks stoned! Spray her!"
(These are paraphrased btw)

Seriously? Because she sounds annoying, or is a hippy, or exercised her right to protest it`s okay to be pepper-sprayed? Are you kids for real?

Every incidence like this needs to be scrutinized and questioned. Right or wrong, the police must be held to a higher standard of behavior due to the responsibilities society has given them.

I`m not saying the police were right or wrong, but you all should be more concerned with the police actions than the sound of a girls voice.

Are they supposed to use pepper spray as summary punishment?

"That may be the single most idiotic comparison of two situations that I have ever seen on IAB."

I disagree, his analogy is very accurate.

Everybody supports different things, not everybody supports new years, just like not everybody supports protests. So long as it`s all being done peacefully there is no cause for this at all.

I would however like to take the time to point out that we have thus far only received one side of this story through numerous posts.

IT IS A HOAX!!! It has been since the supposed fall of the soviet union. All protest these days are from soviet undercover operatives designed to crush the United States, once it is achieved they will reemerge and rule the world under an iron fist, enslaving much of the population.

In order to stop the soviets, we must stop the protests! KILL THEM ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not surprised at all, I`m pretty sure cops could protest on their own behalf if they felt it was needed.

Civil disobedience has always met with force, that`s what makes those that do it heroes...however, if you amp up the effects for the camera you lose the effect and make your cause a joke. Well done overly-dramatic-loser-chick...well done indeed.

That chick looks legitimately retarded, that or she`s high as f*ck.

Oh and sunglasses and a bandanna aren`t going to do sh*t if she get`s sprayed directly in the face, trust me.

I know it sounds insane but I wish more of these things would happen. The next one could be the one that sets off a revolution. It has been too long since the last uprising.

"here`s a newsflash for you: Whether you are a protester or not, blocking, or impeding the progress of others on a public walkway or thoroughfare is against the law."

Ok, so if I want to walk from one side of Times Square to other on New Year`s Eve, then I`d request that the NYPD corral and pepper spray every single person that is just standing there impeding my progress.

@ BB Jellyfish: I see I struck a nerve.

Do you have a legitimate point to make? Or was "stuff it" your poetic contribution to "sticking it to the man"?

None of the videos posted so far give any context, nor do they clearly show whether or not these "protesters" are on private property.

It`s quite obvious that they were moving into the street, which they`re not supposed to do, plus, here`s a newsflash for you: Whether you are a protester or not, blocking, or impeding the progress of others on a public walkway or thoroughfare is against the law.

Also... "Chelsea Elliott"??? She just happens to share the name of a section of the east side of Manhattan?

I`m tempted to call shenanigans on her name.

@Madest: Of course they have the right to peaceably assemble. Nobody is denying that. The bill of rights does not completely excuse people from retarded actions. But when you act like a drating dick and "occupy" a whole street, hindering the ability of people to do their daily duties, then you are not completely covered by the "right to peaceably assemble" amendment.

Same thing goes when people scream about freedom of speech. If you walk into a store and start screaming at people and wind up getting punched in the face, the First Amendment would not allow it. The bill of rights is flexible like that.

They`ve got that whole city on red alert 24/7
they had a good story on 60 min they want to put cameras everywhere,literally. They have computers monitoring them and if it sees a bag or something small and bag or box shaped thats sitting too long
it sends an alert. this happened in front of some building and they sent out bomb squad and the whole enchilada...it was someones lunch that they had dropped. What an amazing use of public funds.

@BBJellyFish

May or may not be true since the police seem to be the only people with a constant steady stream of recorded material at these protests, and we likely won`t be seeing what they are recording for some time.

Either way, the pepper spray doesn`t matter. I`ve pepper sprayed my 7 year old nephew because he was getting tired of just wrestling. I`ve had friends sneak up behind me, and choke me out and others come up behind me and mace me. I was far more comfortable with the mace. This isn`t the drama queen from the video, so I have no hate for this one.

What does matter would be what the camera missed. Mace wears off so quickly, but, say a broken nose because a cop slammed some chick to the ground, that`s the actual story.

They weren`t breaking the law in any way shape or form. They weren`t blocking the sidewalk or traffic. What they were doing was 100% legal.

So stuff it.

1. She is annoying.

2. No, she doesn`t clean up well. She`s not in the least bit attractive, and her smug, idealistic, suburban hippie bullsh*t makes me wanna puke.

Occupy Wall Street? Fine. I get it, and support it as long as you don`t bait the police. But stay the hell off of private property, don`t hinder traffic on public streets and side walks, and most importantly, don`t expect me to shed a tear for you if you break a law and the police use a non-lethal method to subdue you.

I hate how all the commenters take the side of the man. You know that the protesters are right yet you piss and moan about how they`re doing it. In America we have a constitutional right to assemble, you witness police abuse on your fellow citizens and you criticize the person who was abused. You should be ashamed of yourselves.
