Tweet of the Day: The Occupy Wall Street Hipster Cop Halloween costume?

Today's tweet comes from KPCC's own Madeleine Brand Show, which has evinced a preoccupation with a character being called the "Hipster Cop." The New York Times has the full exposé on this NYPD law-enforcement icon, now a symbol of his times. The beauty of his look? It's oh-so now. You can show that you're down with #OWS and also give your skinny pants, slim ties, and snug cardigans, not to mention your nerd-frame glasses, a workout.

Protesting the financial elite never looked to fashionable.

No sign yet of an LA hipster cop. Which is a bit sad, as police HQ is right across the street from City Hall, where Occupy LA has camped out. Maybe a hipster cop isn't our thing, however. I think possibly...Surfer Cop?
