For two months now, Occupy Wall Street has captured the minds and attention of people across New York state.
The Occupy movement itself has inspired nationwide movements in major cities across the country. However, the movement has also attracted a fair amount of controversy.
Recent photos posted online display some of the more negative assets to the movement.
Right now, much debate is occurring as to whether or not the police have acted in an appropriate manner. Many believe that, since public safety is a concern, the police have acted appropriately when it comes to the protestors. Since criminal activity has also occurred during the movement, including allegations of rape among the protestors, many argue that the police and Mayor Bloomberg have certainly been in the right in the way Occupy Wall Street has been handled.
As the debate rages on, take a look at these photos that illustrate the ongoing movement.
