About the arrests in Tompkins Square Park Saturday afternoon

At Neither More Nor Less, Bob Arihood reports on the multiple arrests that occurred in Tompkins Square Park Saturday afternoon around 1:30 p.m. in the stretch of walkway between the chess tables and Crusty Row.

In addition, as this video shows, the NYPD escorted a press photographer out of the Park for having used his cell-cam to photograph one of the arrests.

Meanwhile, Bob's post also has more information about Lisa, who was recently arrested while sitting at the chess tables — and not playing chess. Despite what you may have read elsewhere, Bob's original reporting was accurate.

How embarrasing for Nick. Nick is a great photographer and a papparazzi too!!He has photographed all over the world.
BTW--who did the video of Nick??

If he was honestly escorted out for taking a video of an arrest on his cell phone he needs to report that.

Bob's doing a great job of reporting on the police harassment in TSP. You get escorted out for taking pictures of an arrest? I agree with Anonymous 10:09 AM, he should report it.
