Pirate Things / NYPD Strikes A Protester

In a Victory march lead by protesters, an officer attacked a protester who was walking by in the street. It does not appear that this person did anything to provoke the officer. According to Gothamist the officer knocked his earring out.

In this next video, you will be able to see the other angle of the cop approaching the protester, then going forward. From this angle, it is not clear if the man was hit.
