Congressman Asks DOJ to Probe Police Conduct at OWS

New York Democrat Jerrold Nadler says in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder there were “troubling reports” of possible misconduct by police.

He says there were reports of “possible unlawful surveillance” of protesters’ constitutionally protected activities and excessive use of force by New York Police Department officers. He says he was “especially troubled” the NYPD “aggressively blocked journalists” from reporting the Nov. 15 eviction of protesters from a Manhattan park they were occupying.
