Something Else from Ron Paul re: Occupy Wall Street
Posted on October 3, 2011
Another interesting nugget…
When I asked Ron Paul if the planned internal NYPD probe would be sufficient to address widespread complaints about officers’ conduct during the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations, he said, “It should be controlled by the mayor of the city, who appoints the police commissioner.”
As far as I can tell, Bloomberg has been unequivocally deferential to Ray Kelly and crew throughout this entire ordeal — I don’t think he’s even publicly acknowledged any issue with officer conduct/tactics. So much for an independent arbiter of police accountability.
