Terrorism

#OWS S15 Pedestrian Bloc

500 or more Occupy revelers march from Washington Square Park to their former home in Zucotti to kick off the Occupied Anniversary Party. 26 were arrested mostly through snatch and grab terrorist tactics.  Those arrested had done nothing wrong, were walking peacefully on the sidewalk with their friends. Squads of terrorists pushed through the peaceful crowd to man handle and steal people.

911 Ground Zero 2011

5 years ago I covered the 911 events in NYC and it seemed like we were about to win this and convict those terrorists.  5 years later, on my 10th anniversary as an activist the mood is more somber.  We've awoken the masses; who wrote the congressman, signed a petition, went to a protest and gave up.  Now what?

MBN Independent Media Saboteur

It was NOT actually Bug Spray.   A counter protester tries to sabotage the generator being used by independent media at the first campsite of the march.  Several independent reports from those on the scene said it smelled like Starter Fluid.   Irregardless, the best thing that could have happened if I had allowed this man to continue would have been the destruction of the generator.  The worst thing that could have happened is that he blew up himself, the generator, gas can, and potentially the Media Bus full of people and equipment.
