Its a fake.

Looks like Jason’s truthiness is suspect on most things he states. The image was created by Scott Lickstein and folks can purchase a signed print for fifty bucks from his site:

Who knows what Wettstein’s motivations are. Maybe he’s attempting to make #OWS supporters look like jerks.
If Jason's motivation was to make the protesters look like idiots (as bninja plainly puts out in previous post) he succeeded.

@ Jason…you have done a grave misjustice to the cause. How is anybody supposed to take us seriously when you post deceptive images ? This is not child’s play and people are being beaten and maced, yet you are at home safe playing with Photoshop. I use Photoshop as well and am damn good at it, but I would never stoop to deception. Shame on you from someone who would be there protesting if I did not live in the deep South.
