It’s proved impossible for me to get this shot of former Philadelphia Police Cpt. Ray Lewis being arrested, published anywhere.  I was adamantly rebuffed by the Philadelphia Inquirer, NYT, local NY papers, and Newsweek, before even looking at the photograph.  One of the only published photos of this paradoxical and intense event is located here at the NYC Observer:

Glad this photo saw the light of day.

Occupy Wall Street Link Roundup:

Occupy Wall Street at Duarte Park in Lower Manhattan this morning. This is where a lot of protesters relocated after last night’s raid on Zuccotti Park.

  • A few hundred protesters
  • 30-40 police
  • BIG media presence
  • Counted 6 helicopters circling above!
  • Protester message focused on going back to Zuccotti Park (“We have lawyers down there right now!”)
