Video: NYPD Pens Group Of Quiet Female Protesters, Then Maces Them

This is video taken earlier today, September 24, 2011.  A group of female protesters were near Union Square in Downtown Manhattan, part of the larger #occupywallstreet protests taking place.  As you can see by the video, the women are quietly protesting.  If they are speaking, they can't be heard.  Half of them were quietly taking pictures.

As they're standing, NYPD officers encircle them.  They get the females penned within a plastic orange barricade, then hit them point blank with pressurized mace.  Watch:
