VIDEO : Activists Arrested During Protest Against David Patraeus at City University of New York

6 CUNY students were arrested Tuesday during a protest against a controversial decision by CUNY to hire ex-C.I.A. director David Petraeus for a teaching post this semester. "A video shows police officers trying to barricade the protesters, who spill out onto the street," The New York Daily News reported. The video shows police shoving and pushing the protesters, including an episode where cops used physical force against young ladies, who took part in the protest.

“They did not touch or threaten those officers,” said lawyer Lamis Deek, who was defending the arrested students. “The only obstruction that happened was from the police.”
