The Albany Times Union is reporting on Occupy Wall Street protester Kaylee Dedrick, and her attempt at a money grab via lawsuit against the NYPD.
Turns out she’s also a teacher’s assistant in the area:
A teacher’s assistant from North Greenbush who was pepper sprayed in last year’s Occupy Wall Street protests filed a federal civil rights lawsuit Monday against New York City and several police officers, her attorney said.
Kaylee Dedrick, 25, alleges that she was peacefully protesting when Deputy Inspector Anthony Bologna pepper sprayed her in the face from a distance of less than two feet temporarily blinding her and leaving her screaming in pain.
As is typical with the OWS protesters, Dedrick portrays herself as a harmless bystander who did not warrant the treatment she received. But this simply isn’t the case.
Dedrick, who I might remind you is a teacher’s assistant in the North Greenbush school system, was drawing the ire of police prior to the pepper spray incident, when she decided to protest topless on the streets of New York City (video below the fold).
The Times Union report also tries to provide a positive light for Dedrick and the new found love which sprang from the incident.
Dedrick began a relationship with the civilian medic who treated her and the couple is expecting the birth of a daughter in two weeks, Kuby said.
Of course, a quick Google search shows that the relationship between Dedrick and Robert Grodt is nothing but a sham.

Oh did we mention, Dedrick is a teacher’s assistant?
Occupy Albany Threatening, Harassing Police Officer’s Family (Use Wanted Poster With Map to His Home)
Looks like the dredges of the earth, er, I mean, Occupy Albany is back at it again. Last week we saw them offering up their children as human shields to defend against pepper spray.
Then, they were seen causing nearly $30,000 in damage to a holiday lights display in the park.
And now they’re threatening and harassing a police officer who had the audacity to defend himself during the Occupy Albany eviction.
Via the Times Union:
Police are taking steps to protect an Albany police officer whose family has received threats after he was publicly identified for using pepper spray to quell Occupy Albany protesters last week.
A “wanted” poster seeking information including the home address, telephone numbers and “map to home” of Officer Richard Gorleski was posted Wednesday on a Facebook page used by Occupy Albany.
Of course, being the Mensa candidates that they all are, the protestors can’t even harass people successfully:
Gorleski’s address and telephone numbers are not publicly listed. But Gorleski’s father, a Troy resident who has the same first name as his son, began receiving unsettling telephone calls from blocked numbers this week. Troy police said they have taken measures to keep watch on the residence.
“We have, in fact, been in contact with Officer Gorleski about his concerns, and they will be our utmost priority,” said Troy police Capt. John Cooney. “We are aware of Rich’s concerns, and we’re going to take it very seriously and maintain a safe environment for his family, as we would for any person in that position.”
What has raised the ire of the Occupiers?
Gorleski used pepper spray when, according to police officials, the crowd grew unruly and converged on Gorleski and his horse.
Apparently self defense is frowned upon by the 99%.
At this point, Occupy Albany has slowly graduated from trespassing, to vandalism, and now to harassment.
Why wouldn’t they really?
District Attorney, David Soares, has made it clear that prosecuting crimes is not a priority of his when it comes to politcally charged cases such as Occupy Albany. Soares is an enabler who has empowered himself to pick and choose which laws people should adhere to based on his own personal opinions.
Now the Albany police force will have to pay for the spinelessness of the DA.
Hopefully it won’t end violently.
