When is a brick not a brick? When you need outrage I guess.

Today is when last Saturday's brick turned out to be a bottle of coke.

But the guy who threw it is being held on felony charges without bond according to this local report. It's not in the text, but reported in the clip.

UPDATE: Authorities in Washington are now saying an Occupy D.C. protestor threw a liquid-filled soda bottle, not a brick, at a U.S. Park Police officer over the weekend.

Court documents available Monday say the demonstrator, Jeremiah Desausa, threw the Coke bottle Saturday. Authorities say he resisted arrest and was subdued with a Taser. He later said he hadn't intended to hit anyone.


I'm not saying that a bottle of coke is better than a brick, but there is a big difference between the two objects. If you're the cops, why do you let the reports of a thrown brick not be corrected?
