Activists have identified the senior New York Police Department officer who allegedly pepper-sprayed young women at the "Occupy Wall Street" protests, and it's not the first time he has been accused of civil rights abuses. The Guardian confirmed that the officer is Anthony Bologna, who was also accused of civil rights abuses and false arrest during the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York City. Photographs of the officer's badge also suggested that Bologna was the person in question. A file released by the hacker group Anonymous pointed to a 2007 civil rights suit filed against Bologna. Post A. Posr, the man named as a plaintiff in that suit, was arrested during the 2004 convention although he wasn't actively taking part in the protests.It is unknown whether Officer Tony Bologna once danced to 'Boney Moroney'.
