The Tony Award-winning actress had enough rage to go around -- she also pointed the finger at New York's Mayor Bloomberg and all of City Hall for creating the environment that let this happen.
"F*** all of u, Bloomberg & every1 goose-stepping behind u. I cannot believe what I am seeing. U protect nothing. U ARE the violence in my city."
Despite her outrage, a video of the incident shows that she might be "Barkin" up the wrong tree. It appears as though the cop in question did not actually push Barkin anywhere, let alone down onto her knees -- he simply guided her back onto the sidewalk after she got in his face.
