Occupy Wall Street and the NYPD really, really don’t get along.

In an apparent attempt to address the strained relationship, OWS protestors decided to dangle doughnuts from pieces of string in front of police officers last night. Two days ago, OWS affiliates poured buckets of “human excrement” around the city. The doughnut-dangling trend started on Tuesday night after cops evicted OWS from their short-lived home in Union Square, when some protestors incorporated the word doughnut into their chants. D’oh.
