Occupy Wall Street adds two more isolated, unrelated incidents to its extensive catalogue of isolated, unrelated incidents, this time pouring human feces and urine first into a public plaza, and then into a Chase bank branch. CBS New York reports:
The NYPD released surveillance video Wednesday night detailing some stinky business they say is linked to Occupy Wall Street protesters.
Police said that on evening of March 14, a number of Occupy demonstrators dragged large quantities of human urine and feces in containers to an open-air plaza before pouring the waste down a flight of stairs.
The incident occurred at the corner of Nassau and Cedar streets in Lower Manhattan.
Authorities said that that same night, about 20 minutes later, one of the suspects entered a Chase ATM vestibule on Water Street and poured human waste inside.
Pix 11 is reporting that the perpetrator has been caught:
Jordan Brooks Amos, 25, of Philadelphia, was charged with Unlawful Possession of Noxious Matter (urine and feces) and Aggravated Unlicensed Operation of a Motor Vehicle; he also faces a Criminal Possession of a Weapon charge after officers discovered a stun gun inside the vehicle.
There was a point in American history at which those who moved frequently between New York and Philadelphia for political purposes were hell-bent on establishing a new nation. Now, it seems, they seem hellbent on making the most recent issue of The Nation look silly. The move brings to mind a joke that President Reagan liked to tell:
Former Congressman Prentiss Walker dropped in on a farm and introduced himself as a Republican candidate. And as he tells it, the farmer’s eyes lit up, and then he said, ‘Wait ‘til I get my wife. We’ve never seen a Republican before.’ And a few minutes later he was back with his wife, and they asked Prentiss if he wouldn’t give them a speech.
Well, he looked around for a kind of a podium, something to stand on, and then the only thing available was a pile of that stuff that the late Mrs. Truman said it had taken her 35 years to get Harry to call ‘fertilizer.’ So, he stepped up on that and made his speech.
And apparently he won them over. And they told him it was the first time they’d ever heard a Republican. And he says, ‘That’s okay. That’s the first time I’ve ever given a speech from a Democratic platform.’
