NYPD: Couple Not Terrorists, Just Rich Kid Junkies
Investigators say they believe 27-year-old Morgan Gliedman and 31-year-old Aaron Greene are just two more products of privilege squandering their advantages on drugs.
"It looks like they're junkies," a high-level police source says. "Well-to-do junkies, not terrorists."
Indeed, in the first days of the investigation police reached the tentative conclusion that the explosives and weapons were just part of a drug-fueled, twisted sense of what constitutes cool. A neighbor lends credence to the police view when he adds, "There was always a heavy cloud of smoke emanating from the place, and one got the sense that they were both heavily into drugs."
Green's personal hygiene, cops say, is what might have been expected of a junkie."To be honest, you could smell him before you saw him," the neighbor says.
By midday Sunday, police had reached the tentative conclusion that the explosives and weapons were part of some drug-fueled fantasy life. To cops, Greene appears to be living proof that going to Harvard does not necessarily make you any less a knucklehead. As for Gliedman, it may turn out that the raid on the apartment was the best thing that could have happened for her child, who can now expect to begin life in the New Year away from explosives and guns.
So it's "move it along, nuthin to see here" time. Made official by the fact that the Times actually had something on it this morning...
But we could still give then ten years each just for being rich, spoiled morons with explosives...
