Arresting the Polar Bear
Talk about iconic. Among the over 100 protesters arrested Monday at the Flood Wall Street action were two Captain Planets and Frostpaw, the ubiquitous polar bear, Keystone activist and member of the Center For Biological Diversity. His arrest prompted boos and chants from the crowd, the perfect image for protesters, and a swift, often gleeful response from online commenters. Noted one, "There's now been 100% more polar bears arrested than bankers" in the great recession. "Thanks NYPD," said another, "You always deliver."
