Occupy DC pressures Park police return skateboarder's bag at Freedom Plaza

DC's Million Hoodie March was followed by a rally at Freedom Plaza.
During this rally, US Park Police suffered a defeat at the hands of
Occupy protesters when they took a skateboarder's unattended bag
Two skateboarders had arrived with the rally and were harassed by
Park Police.

Several Occupy protesters went after the cop who had the
bag locked in his trunk. I allowed myself to be overheard saying "we
know how to get into a car," to which a woman cop said "you don't want
to do that." The skatebaarder whose bag was taken went to speak to the
offending cop, backed up by Occupy DC members up close while I shot
video from the ledge above. The cops threw in the towel and returned the
bag!
