Follow Up of the Day: A second video has surfaced online appearing to show pepper-spraying NYPD Deputy Inspector Anthony Bologna — a known civil rights violator — matter-of-factly dousing a second set of Wall Street demonstrators with the painful inflammatory agent.

Bologna “looked as if he were spraying cockroaches,” remarked the New York Times after viewing footage of the now-infamous incident, which took place during this weekend’s Occupy Wall Street protests.

After initially calling the use of pepper spray “appropriate,” the NYPD reversed course today, announcing that an internal investigation would take place.

The incident will also be reviewed by the Civilian Complaint Review Board, “an independent agency that investigates allegations of police misconduct.”
