‘Follow Those Kids!’: Wall St. Occupiers Heckle Small Children as They Walk Gauntlet to Get to School

Small schoolchildren were forced to walk the gauntlet of frenzied Wall Street Occupiers just to get to school on Thursday. What’s worse, protesters reportedly screamed “follow those kids!” as worried parents tried to lead their children through the police barriers along Wall Street. CBS reports that the NYPD was thankfully there to help the kids and ease their fears — clearly a factor given that one protester did in fact follow a father and his daughter down the entire block.
“These guys are terrorists, yelling at little kids,” one father said.“For them it’s horrible. They’re afraid of all the crowds. We’re not even able to get through. They’re just, he’s … very afraid now,” one mother said.

After school had concluded for the day, one 4-year-old boy could be heard telling his mother he was scared

“There was a parade. It was scary — crowded with school,” the boy said.

“After a while it got so bad some parents couldn’t get their children through and they had to go late,” said parent Gary Goldenstein.

So far school officials said they haven’t had to cancel any classes.
