‘Molotov’ Occupier Busted For Terror Threats

From the New York Daily News:

Zuccotti Park protester Nkrumah Tinsley arrested after threatening to burn down city

Urges Molotov coctail [sic] strike on Macy’s

A protester was arrested in Zuccotti Park Wednesday after he threatened to fire bomb the city — and his rant went viral on YouTube, police said.

Nkrumah Tinsley, 29, was busted after cops saw a video of him claiming he would torch the city during Thursday’s mass protest posted online, police said.

“On the 17th (of Nov.), we’re going to burn New York City to the f—ing ground,” an angry Tinsley told a crowd of demonstrators in the video posted on Tuesday.

“In a few days, you’re going to see what a Molotov cocktail can do to Macy’s.”

When officers from the NYPD’s intelligence division saw the video, they immediately began working on trying to identify the raging man, police said.

“We didn’t want him out there [Thursday]. We wanted him in our custody,” said Paul Browne, top spokesman for the NYPD. “He was specific as to date, location and method for the fire bombing …maybe it was just a rant, but we didn’t want to take that chance.”

But what about his freedom of speech? Where is the ACLU? And why arrest him when dozens if not hundreds of this Occupation Army have made similar if not worse threats of violence?

After all, this was just a threat against property. Many of the protesters have actually threatened to kill people Wall Street bankers. And the police have just looked the other way.

Cops later spotted Tinsley at Zuccotti Park Wednesday and collared him about 5 p.m., police said. He was charged with making terroristic threats.

Again, how were Mr. Tinsley’s threats anymore "terroristic" then the rest of the run of the mill threats from these protesters? After all, isn’t the threat to shut down Wall Street, the subways and bridges – in fact, the whole city – a "terroristic" threat?

Tinsley’s parents described their son as mentally ill and recently started leaving the family’s University Heights, Bronx, home to support protesters downtown.

“I was really happy — he was going meeting people and talking to others, instead of sitting in his room talking to himself,” said his father, James Jacob, 66.

Parents all across America are probably saying the same thing about their kids joining the ‘Occupy’ movement.

Jacob said his son got too excited within the crowd and understood the arrest.

“He was just running his mouth,” he said. “He’s got to learn. He’s got to pay for what he did.”

Again, this would be a good rule of thumb for the OWS in general.

It’s not the first time Tinsley has been busted since the Occupied Wall Street movement started in Sept.

In October, Tinsley was arrested on Barclay St. for punching a cop in the face and kicking him on the ground during a protest. He was charged with felony assault for the attack and later released without bail

The article doesn’t say whether it was an Occupy Wall Street protest or not. But what exactly is the difference? Naturally, Tinsley was released without bail.

After all, he was just "running his mouth."

    Stalinism is the operative credo of OWS.

    Molotov was born Vyacheslav Mikhailovich Skryabin

    The Molotov cocktail is a term coined by the Finns during the Winter War, as a generic name used for a variety of improvised incendiary weapons. During the Winter War, the Soviet air force made extensive use of incendiaries and cluster bombs against Finnish troops and fortifications. When Molotov claimed in radio broadcasts that they were not bombing, but rather delivering food to the starving Finns, the Finns started to call the air bombs Molotov bread baskets. Soon they responded by attacking advancing tanks with “Molotov cocktails” which were “a drink to go with the food”. According to Montefiore the Molotov cocktail was one part of Molotov’s cult of personality which he highly disliked because it was a source of mockery and disdain of his sociopathic power.

    Naturally, it is a favored instrument of the mind-numbed anarchist swine.

    What loving parents. Allowing their 29 year old to live at their home in University Heights. They’re excited their son has found an interest in life. Having a mental illness is a given to any liberal. Must run in the family.

    Am I the only one less than chocked that a mentally ill person found people he fit in with at OWS?
