Day three in my Ten Occupy Wall Street Heroes in Ten Days series is retired Philadelphia police Captain Ray Lewis. On November 17th Lewis changed the game and decided to willingly be arrested in solidarity during the Occupy Wall Street “Day of Action” in New York. As a former officer, Lewis offers an invaluable perspective from the side of the police. Here Lewis talks on the panel with Chris Hayes about his experience of being arrested by the NYPD and his unique position as both an occupier and a retired officer.
