NYPD Using Excessive Violence Against Peaceful Protestors

The Occupy Wall Street protest is getting ugly, and it's the police that are becoming violent.  This video clearly shows a protestor being violently thrown to the grown for doing nothing.  His hands are raised in a gesture of surrender to the police and he is just talking when the officer wrenches his arm and throws him to the ground.

Though I think the protestors are really scattered in their message, they have a right to be there and the NYPD is doing itself no favors by abusing them.
