It’s just another day in the life of a security guard. The park, which remains under watch by security 24/7 since the dissolution of the Occupy encampment, is still witnessing acts of rebellion.

A security guard was playing computer games in the park last night, until he realized he was being filmed by an Occupy livestreamer, reports . The security guard, accompanied by another, approached the Occupier and told him not to stand on the park chairs. When the accompanying guard implied the livestreaming may not be legal, the game-playing guard smashed the camera out of the man’s hand.

and livestream viewers appeared on scene to see what the melee concerned. Officers told the Occupy camera operators they were not allowed to stand on tables and chairs.
