OWS Arrest: John Knefel

On December 12, 2011, while attempting to cover an Occupy Wall Street protest of Goldman Sachs at the Winter Garden in lower Manhattan, John Knefel, co-host of Radio Dispatch on BTR, was arrested by the NYPD and held in detention for 37 hours. John’s sister and co-host, Molly, was also on the scene and questioned police about the reasons for her brother’s arrest; while officers she spoke with were less than responsive to her questions, one officer was willing to offer, “I have a gun on me, okay? I don’t need people coming that close to me.” Here, John and Molly tell their story.
