[Update: Police softening - from Al Jazeera:
"The police officer told me he was going to cuff me very loosely so it wouldn’t hurt,” said one woman arrested on Saturday. Waiting in the bus she found the plastic strap cuffs were so loose her hands were not bound and she could freely take one out to use her cell phone.

[Update 09/28/2011: #OccupyWallStreet liveblog up: Live Blog of #OccupyWallStreet: Day Eleven, Union Interest is Increasing. Quote of the day, Matt Taibbi (h/t klynn):
There are times when one wonders how effective marches are... but in this case demonstrations could be very important just in terms of educating people about the fact that there is, in fact, a well-defined conflict out there with two sides to it.
