NYPD Officers Attacked by OWS Goons Using ‘Black Bloc’ Tactics
On Saturday night, in New York City, a group of Occupy Wall Street organizers demonstrated their new ‘Black Bloc’ tactics and attacked members of the NYPD who responded to the scene of their vandalism. Street thugs who wear black clothes and masks to engage in criminal activities are said to be using Black Bloc tactics developed in Germany in the 1970s.
According to The Blaze, the OWS crowd caused damage to businesses and attacked police officers during their violent outing. RADICALS SMASH WINDOWS AT NYC BUSINESS IN CHILLING DISPLAY OF VIOLENT ‘BLACK BLOC’ TACTICS, Madeleine Morgenstern reports,
Two people were arrested in New York City Saturday night after protesters, some with possible Occupy Wall Street connections, vandalized storefronts in what was described as “black bloc” tactics, the New York Times reported. Gothamist reports that a long-time Occupy organizer was one of those arrested for attacking a NYPD officer with a metal pipe.
This tactic is one of the new behaviors adopted by OWS organizers to increase the aggressive and terror-like actions of the new Occupy group.
Additionally, Pamela Geller reported in Atlas Shrugs blog, OBAMA ENDORSED #OWS ANARCHY IN NEW YORK! PANIC ENSUES #OWS LEADER ASSAULTS NYPD WITH METAL PIPE:
“Cops last night arrested three self-proclaimed anarchists who assaulted two police officers and terrorized patrons at an East Village coffee shop, authorities said.
The melee broke out at 8:45 p.m. when a gang of 25 authority-haters, some wearing masks, wielded 8-foot-long metal pipes and tried to smash the windows of the Starbucks at Astor Place and Lafayette Street, police said.
Coffee drinkers hid under tables during the fracas, cops said.
The group had just left the sixth annual anarchist book fair being held at a church off Washington Square Park.
They then took to the streets marching against traffic chanting, “F— the NYPD!” “Cops are murderers!” and “All pigs must die!” authorities said.
In addition to the Starbucks vandalism, a group of about 150 were seen tipping garbage cans and spray-painting anarchist symbols on storefronts, sources said.
One sergeant spotted, Eric Marchese, 24, smashing windows at several stores in the East Village, police sources said. He was charged with criminal mischief and disorderly conduct.
Two other protesters, Alexander Penley, 41, and Nicholas Thommen, 30, were slapped with several charges including assault, criminal possession of a weapon and inciting a riot.
This is the promised 99% Spring 2012 assault on America by the Occupiers. Once again, the president has the opportunity to denounce this criminal element. Will he take charge or continue to remain invisible in his leadership role?
