The Occupy Wall Street protestor that threatened to burn Macy’s in a rant that went viral on Youtube is now cooling his heels in a New York City jail.
Nkrumah Tinsley has been arrested for making terrorist threats. It turns out it wasn’t his first run-in with the NYPD at Occupy Wall Street, either. He had been arrested previously for felony assault after punching a cop in the face and then kicking him while he was down. Considering his propensity for violence, I hope the authorities find a way to keep him in prison, as they can’t afford to take this particular radical’s threats lightly.
Update: Ortega has now been charged with attempting to assassinate the President.
