Occupy Cleveland members plead guilty in Ohio bridge bombing plot

Three Occupy Cleveland members today pleaded guilty to charges filed in connection with a plot to blow up a bridge between Cleveland and Akron, Ohio.

Brandon Baxter, 20, Connor Stevens, 20, and Douglas Wright, 26, will drop their defense of entrapment by the FBI as part of the plea deal. An FBI informant supplied the men with fake explosives, which they allegedly planted on the Route 82 bridge and attempted to detonate with a cell phone.

A fourth suspect, Anthony Hayne, 35, pleaded guilty in July and agreed to cooperate with prosecutors. Joshua Stafford, 23, the fifth suspect in the case, is undergoing psychiatric evaluation.

Michelle Malkin, Dana Loesch, Sonnie Johnson, Tony Katz and others held an Occupy the Truth rally in Cleveland in August to draw media attention to the case.

    But, but, they are the 99%! The rapes and sexual assaults in their camp just shows everyone how much they love women, and besides, they can always get an abortion. And taking a deuce on a cop car shows them how much they love the police. They weren’t trying to destroy a bridge and kill people, they were just doing an infrastructure job as part of the stimulus!

    Another story both Barry and the state run media will brag about in private but act like it never happened when in public …… only tenured academia will brag about in public and private.

    Infuriating and disgusting, and I mean the Collaborationist Media even more than these freaks. One can at least make the case that Occupants just don’t know any better — people who make their money sitting in front of a camera certainly do.
