(Newser) – The New York City cop who pepper-sprayed a pair of Occupy Wall Street protesters in a seemingly unprovoked attack that got caught on YouTube has been punished, at least a little. The NYPD has docked Anthony Bologna 10 vacation days for violating the department's guidelines on pepper spray, reports the Daily News. A local community organizer called it a mere "slap on the wrist" but said it was important that the NYPD acknowledged the attack. Bologna is a 29-year veteran who makes $154,300 a year. Will the vacation penalty satisfy Jon Stewart? (Read more Occupy Wall Street stories.)
