Cops turned on headlights on their police vans, which are behind the protesters.

The NYPD bus is backing up toward the protesters

Crowd now chanting "The whole world is watching."

1968 called. It wants its protest chant back.

Too bad for the protesters though. The whole world has better things to do than watch them fulfill their hippie fantasies.

First man arrested moved on to bus.

— Hunter Walker (@hunterw) September 22, 2014

People are being arrested and moved onto bus now. Seen three arrests so far.

Some in crowd throwing things at cops as those arrested are moved onto the bus.

Protesters at #FloodWallStreet chanting "Hands Up Don't Shoot" as police make arrests. All seems peaceful so far.

— Hunter Walker (@hunterw) September 22, 2014

Another plagiarized chant? These protesters are just phoning it in.

Another two people being arrested, I've lost count.

I could keep tweeting pics of the arrests, but it's basically al the same. Slow, seemingly calm, orderly.

Especially loud boos as man in polar bear costume brought away by police. We interviewed him earlier.

“Nobody arrests a polar bear in my town!”

The mood outside the barricades is raucous, angry, chaotic. Inside, those about to be arrested are calm, somber, focused.

— Nick Pinto (@macfathom) September 22, 2014

The cops aren't the only ones being calm. Haven't seen any protester shouting or resisting arrest.

Gov. Mary Fallin calls beheading ‘act of cowardice’; Death penalty sought!/GovMaryFallin/status/517026897373298688

Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin issued a press release today insisting that the perpetrator of the Vaughn Foods beheading will be brought to justice. Cleveland County District Attorney Greg Mashburn has indicated that he will seek the death penalty in the case.

“Since the attack was reported, I have been communicating with law enforcement as well as Oklahoma’s Department of Homeland Security to ensure a thorough investigation is conducted into the motives of the attacker,” wrote Fallin. “That investigation is still ongoing, and it is unclear at this time whether the crime was an act of terrorism, workplace violence, or a gruesome combination of both.”

I hope Oklahoma get it right & file murder 1 special circumstances against Alton Nolen and seek the death penalty. #WorkplaceViolenceMyBum

— Brian Mora (@BrianMora_USA) September 30, 2014

Alton Nolen murdered in the name of Islam – hated "infidels". That's a hate crime and he should get the death penalty.

— Stephen Wilson (@GR8_2B_alive) September 27, 2014

Death penalty. Stop this shit now before it gets out of hand.

Press release on charges against former GSA official Jeffrey Neely:

— Ryan J. Reilly (@ryanjreilly) September 26, 2014

Neely faces up to five years in prison if convicted according to the DOJ press release:

The indictment includes three false claims counts, under 18 U.S.C. § 287, and two counts of making false statements and using false documents, under 18 U.S.C. § 1001. Neely is scheduled to make his initial appearance in federal court in San Francisco on October 20, 2014, before the Honorable Elizabeth D. Laporte, United States Magistrate Court Judge.

If convicted, the defendants face a maximum sentence of five years imprisonment, and a fine of $250,000 for each violation. However, any sentence following conviction would be imposed by the court after consideration of the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and the federal statute governing the imposition of a sentence, 18 U.S.C. § 3553.
