Barkin saw some girl being arrested and screaming that she wasn’t a protester that she was just on her way home. She became outraged and tweeted this:
Fuck all of u,Bloomberg & every1 goose-stepping behind u.I cannot believe what I am seeing.U protect nothing.U ARE the violence in my city
Here’s the clip that shows an officer moving Barkin out of the street when she tried to intervene in the arrest:
First off, you don’t get to intervene in an arrest because you don’t think it should happen. No police organization anywhere in the world would allow that. Second, I think Ms. Barkin needs to have a look at this video and tell me who the instigators are.
Addendum: NewsBusters had this bonus Barkin quote, also from Twitter:
this will be nothing if Obama loses the election. A police state will be just around the corner.” No s**t.#Terrified
Yes, because one girl was arrested (who may have been lying) it’s an incipient police state. Good point, Ellen.
