OWS organizer arrested after police find 'a bomb and weapons' in their apartment
From across the pond. A couple of neo-radicals having their Bill Ayres and Bernardine Dohrn moment of fun. (A footnote: OWS was supported by Barack Hussein Obama and other prominent Donks.).
The daughter of a prominent New York doctor and her Occupy Wall Street-organizer boyfriend were arrested after police discovered an explosive used for making bombs and a cache of weapons in their upscale New York City apartment, it was claimed.
But Michael Bloomberg is more concerned about sugary soft drinks...
Morgan Gliedman, 27, and Aaron Greene, 31, were taken away from their home in Manhattan's pricey Greenwich Village on Saturday. Gliedman, who is nine months pregnant, is the daughter of a top Brooklyn cancer doctor and was educated at the Dalton School, an exclusive New York prep school attended by the likes of Anderson Cooper and Claire Danes.
Makes sense. It's usually the children of the wealthy and powerful who have the idle time to become radicalized by the codswollop they learn at elite schools...
Greene went to Harvard University for his undergraduate degree and did graduate work at the Kennedy School of Government there, as well.
Like I was just saying...
The New York Post reports that police found seven grams of HMTD, a high explosive powder that was reportedly used in the 2005 London Underground bombings.

Officers discovered bomb-making instructions, including one document titled 'The Terrorist Encyclopedia,' according to the newspaper.
Bill Ayers would be so proud...

Greene was held without bail after he appeared in state court in Manhattan on Sunday. Gliedman, who was nine months pregnant when she was arrested, went into labor and gave birth to a baby girl named Melanie, police said. She was hospitalized and had not yet appeared in court.

Authorities said both defendants had drug problems.

"The whole situation's sad," said attorney Lisa Pelosi, who represented Greene. She declined further comment. Greene is due back in court Friday.

Police went to the apartment in Manhattan's Greenwich Village on Saturday morning with a search warrant stemming from a possible credit card fraud by Gliedman, after a tip warning authorities of explosives inside the home. The tip came from a couple who had met Greene and Gliedman in Washington Square Park recently, and said they noticed the cache when they went to their apartment a few weeks ago, Kelly said.

I can see it now. Mummy and daddy's hired big money mouthpiece, "Members of the jury, he was a Svengali! who manipulated a naive, impressionable young woman! She lived in fear of him! She couldn't leave!"

10 years probation. Tommy Harvard pulls 20 to life at Attica...The End.

#5  Cops found the stash in the couple’s West Ninth Street home Saturday when they went there to look for Gliedman, 27, who was wanted for alleged credit-card theft

Using OPM to advance The Cause. Ah, the benefits of an elite school education.

#2  If this had been Tea Party people, we'd get breathless unending alert coverage from the MSM Ministry of Truth. So, this will be consigned to the web, Drudge, and maybe Fox.
