    Outside the Take Back NYU! student occupation at New York University (Brian Jones | SW)

    DOZENS OF New York University (NYU) students occupied a cafeteria on the third floor of the school's student center, known as the Kimmel Center, in an effort to force the administration to agree to a wide-ranging list of reforms.

    As an administration deadline to vacate the building approached on Thursday night, there were as many as 50 people inside the occupation.

    Outside, a crowd of supporters who rallied in the cold all day swelled to some 500 people. Around midnight, the demonstrators took over the street in front of the Kimmel Center, chanting and singing. Police reacted by attacking the protesters, using pepper spray and batons.

    NYU is the only place in the US where you can get a PhD in Austrian economics.

    The police state actually did the right thing is this case. I know I will one day probably be beaten by police too, but I have to say. Beat those $#@!ing commies!
