Sit-in Protests don’t work, let’s try bombs

Christian Science Monitor

The Occupy movement went down with a whimper, despite passionate MSM support.   But some of them tried to go out with a bang.

Five Occupy Cleveland mutts thought that Occupy should bomb the rest of the world into agreement with their ideals.   Now one of them (the smartest of the five) has turned snitch on the rest.   Nice people, the 99%.

Naturally, they have been labelled the Cleveland 5 and the demonstrators are already gathering outside the Courthouse.

One of five men charged with plotting to bomb an Ohio highway bridge made a surprise guilty plea Wednesday and agreed to testify against his co-defendants.

Anthony Hayne, 35, pleaded to all three counts against him in US District Court. His attorney, Michael O’Shea, said Hayne hopes to get leniency in return for his testimony.

Authorities have called the men anarchists. Investigators say the group planted what turned out to be a fake bomb provided by an FBI undercover informant on a bridge south of Cleveland and repeatedly tried to detonate it using text messages from cellphones.’

The defendants could face life in prison if convicted.

Under the terms of the plea deal, Hayne will have the chance to avoid a life prison term. He could face 15 years to nearly 20 years in prison.
