In a tense showdown above the East River, the police arrested about 400 demonstrators from the Occupy Wall Street protests who took to the roadway as they tried to cross the Brooklyn Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

The police did not immediately release precise arrest figures, but said it was the choice of those marchers that led to the swift enforcement.

Things came to a head shortly after 4 p.m., as the 1,500 or so marchers reached the foot of the Brooklyn-bound car lanes of the bridge, just east of City Hall. In their march north from an encampment at Zuccotti Park in lower Manhattan, they had stayed on the sidewalks – forming a long column of humanity penned in by officers on scooters.

Seems like things are heating up. I had no idea it was getting this serious in NY.

What do people think will come of this? Could it change anything?

I'm sure if this movement get's bigger and bigger then they may be some kind of violent suppression of it, which could result in further outrage.

I think it is awesome. The Local Boise Idaho OW actually had 150 people show up. I was surprised! I wish I could join in the fun but with 4 kids under 7 I am not about to drag my kids around to a revolt.
