Occupy Wall Street

Pepper-Spraying Cop in RNC Lawsuit

Anthony Bologna, a New York City police officer who was accused of pepper-spraying women during the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations last week, is still involved in pending legal action for his role in the 2004 protests at the Republican National Convention, when 1,800 people were arrested. One of the protesters accused Bologna of false arrest and civil-rights violations and filed suit against him; the case is expected to be heard next year. After the pepper-spray incident, the hacking group Anonymous claimed responsibility for releasing Bologna’s name to the public, saying, "You know who the innocent women were; now they will have the chance to know who you are. Before you commit atrocities against innocent people, think twice. WE ARE WATCHING!!! Expect Us!"
