Jury Finds Occupy Wall Street Protester Innocent After Video Contradicts Police Testimony [Updated: VIDEO]

Excerpt from article at link: "That was really important," Maurus said. "Without that evidence, this would have been a very different case. There are many, many cases that don't have so much video evidence to challenge the police version of events, but in this case, we did." For Premo, being found innocent affirms something even more fundamental: "The biggest thing for me coming out of this," he told the Voice, "is not being discouraged by the attempts of New York City to quell dissent and prevent us from expressing our constitutional rights." On Twitter and Facebook, Premo celebrated his not-guilty verdict by quoting the lawyer Elizabeth FInk: "There is no justice in the American justice system, but you can sometimes find it in a jury."
