The protests became even more furious after an NYPD officer was caught bragging about using his nightstick on the group just hours before violence broke out between demonstrators and police on Wednesday night.
In the video, which appears to have been shot just hours before the clashes, the officer can be heard saying 'my little night stick's going to get a work out tonight' as he saunters past a police barricade.
 
The protests have slowly grown in size and attention over more than two weeks, with the president's acknowledgement at a news conference a sign they might be jelling into a political movement.

JOE BIDEN: PROTESTERS ARE LIKE THE TEA PARTY

For the left-wing students and unionists marching to ‘occupy Wall Street’, it may not be a comparison they much appreciate.
In an unusual observation, Vice President Joe Biden has likened protesters camping out in the financial district to the Tea Party movement – saying they share anger over federal programmes which favour the richest in America.
‘There's a lot in common with the tea party,’ he said. ’The tea party started why? TARP [The Troubled Asset Relief Program, which bailed out the banks in 2008]. They thought it was unfair - we were bailing out the big guy.’
He added: ‘What is the core of that protest, and why is it increasing in terms of the people it's attracting? The core is the bargain has been breached with the American people.
‘The American people do not think the system is fair or on the level.’
Local protests against corporate America are planned in New Jersey on Thursday as a show of solidarity with demonstrations that started last month outside the New York Stock Exchange.
Rallies met at the Statehouse in Trenton and in Jersey City. Protesters are expected to call for an end of corporate control of government.
The movement has surged in less than three weeks from a ragged group in downtown Manhattan to protesters of all ages demonstrating from Seattle to Tampa.
'I am a mother. I want a better world for my children,' said Lisa Clapier, 46, a producer who lives in Venice, California, who joined protesters in Los Angeles.
In Seattle, where protesters had SET up an encampment in a city park, about two dozen people were arrested for defying police orders to dismantle their tents.
'The cops are doing their job, and we're going to let them do their job. Then we'll come back and occupy the park again,' said Michael Trimarco, 39, an unemployed carpenter.
On Wednesday night, unions lent their muscle to the long-running protest against Wall Street and economic inequality, fuelling speculation about how long the camp-out in lower Manhattan - and related demonstrations around the country - will continue.
As around 5,000 protesters marched toward the New York Stock Exchange on Wednesday, demonstrators tried to storm the barricades but were stopped by police about two blocks away.
There were multiple reports of police using pepper spray to try to ward off the marchers.
A video posted on Youtube shows officers swinging their nightsticks at protesters and has sparked a furious reaction among demonstrators.
Police said about 28 arrests were made, mostly for disorderly conduct.
One person was arrested for assaulting an officer; police said the officer was pushed off his scooter.

Thousands of protesters, including many in union T-shirts, filled lower Manhattan's Foley Square on yesterday and then marched to Zuccotti Park, where the protesters have been camping since September 17.
Earlier Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain told protesters in a Wall Street Journal interview: 'Don't blame Wall Street, don't blame the big banks, if you don't have a job and you're not rich, blame yourself.'
But labor leaders say they will continue to support the protests, both with manpower and donations of goods and services.
'The great thing about Occupy Wall Street is that they have brought the focus of the entire country on the middle class majority,' said George Aldro, 62, a member of Local 2325 of the United Auto Workers, as he carried the union's blue flag over his shoulder through lower Manhattan.

'We're in it together, and we're in it for the long haul.'
The protesters have varied causes but have spoken largely about unemployment and economic inequality, reserving most of their criticism for Wall Street. 'We are the 99 percent,' they chanted, contrasting themselves with the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans.
Ed Figueroa, a janitor in a public school in the Bronx and a shop steward with Local 32BJ of the Service Employees International Union, said the march was 'the first time in these weeks that unions have shown their face.'
'But it won't be the last time,' he said. 'We'll be back.'

The unions were donating food, blankets and office space to the protesters, said Dan Cantor, head of the Working Families Party. But he said the young protesters would continue to head their own efforts. The movement lacks an identified leader and decisions are made during group meetings.
'They're giving more to us than we're giving to them. They're a shot in the arm to everybody,' Cantor said.
'The labor movement is following the youth of America today and that's a good thing.'
Victor Rivera, a vice-president for the powerful 1199 Service Employees International Union, which represents health care workers, said the union had donated 'all the food they need for this entire week' to the Zuccotti Park campers. Union leaders had also assigned liaisons from their political action committee to work with demonstrators.
'We are here to support this movement against Wall Street's greed,' he said. 'We support the idea that the rich should pay their fair share.'

The Occupy Wall Street protests started Sept. 17 with a few dozen demonstrators who tried to pitch tents in front of the New York Stock Exchange. Since then, hundreds have SET up camp nearby in Zuccotti Park and have become increasingly organized, lining up medical aid and legal help and printing their own newspaper.
On Saturday, about 700 people were arrested and given disorderly conduct summonses for spilling into the roadway of the Brooklyn Bridge despite warnings from police. A group of those arrested filed a lawsuit Tuesday, saying officers lured them into a trap before arresting them.
Several Democratic lawmakers have expressed support for the protesters, but some Republican presidential candidates have rebuked them. Herman Cain called the activists 'un-American' Wednesday at a book signing in St. Petersburg, Florida.

'They're basically saying that somehow the government is supposed to take from those that have succeeded and give to those who want to protest,' the former pizza-company executive said. 'That's not the way America was built.'
On Tuesday, CBS reported that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney called the protest "class warfare" at an appearance at a Florida retirement community.
Activists have been showing solidarity with the movement in many cities: Occupy Providence. Occupy Los Angeles. Occupy Boise. More protests and sit-ins are planned across the country in the days ahead.

On Wednesday, more than 100 people withstood an afternoon downpour in Idaho's capital to protest, including Judy Taylor, a retired property manager.
'I want change. I'm tired of things being taken away from those that need help,' she said.
In Seattle, demonstrators tussled with police officers and clung to tents as they defied orders to leave a park. Police said they made 25 arrests. The reception was warmer in Los Angeles, where the City Council approved a resolution of support and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's office distributed 100 rain ponchos to activists at another days-long demonstration, according to City News Service.
In Boston, hundreds of nurses and Northeastern University students rallied together to condemn what they called corporate control of government and the spiralling costs of education. The students banged on drums made of water jugs and chanted, 'Banks got bailed out, and we got sold out.'
'This is an organic process. This is a process of grassroots people coming together. It's a beautiful thing,' said David Schildmeier, spokesman for the Massachusetts Nurses Association.
Many of those protesting are college students. Hundreds walked out of classes in New York, some in a show of solidarity for the Wall Street movement but many more concerned with worries closer to home. Protests were scheduled at State University of New York campuses including Albany, Buffalo, Binghamton, New Paltz and Purchase.
Danielle Kingsbury, a 21-year-old senior from New Paltz, said she walked out of an American literature class to show support for some of her professors who she said have had their workloads increased because of budget cuts.
'The state of education in our country is ridiculous,' said Kingsbury, who plans to teach. 'The state doesn't care about it and we need to fight back about that.'
