First story from New York Daily News:
Police are investigating an Occupy Wall Street sympathizer’s online threat to kill cops.
A man with the Twitter handle “smackema1” tweeted this message at 11:39 p.m. Saturday, following a clash at Zuccotti Park — “we wont make a difference if we dont kill a cop or 2.”
The tweet was directed to a page on Ustream showing live footage of the protests.
The NYPD is seeking a subpoena to find out who’s behind the Twitter account, according to Paul Browne, the department’s top spokesman.
The activists released video Sunday showing protester Cecily McMillan, 23, suffering a seizure after her arrest. In a counter-video released by police, McMillan is seen elbowing her arresting officer in the face.
She was treated at New York Downtown Hospital and released into police custody, cops said, and charged with assault on a police officer then taken to Bellevue Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.
Her arresting officer suffered a cut to the eye but refused medical attention, police said.
A second protester, Daniel Murphy, 25, of Palo Verde, Cal., was also charged with assault on a police officer, officials said.
Christopher Geist, 38, who is homeless according to cops, was charged with attempted robbery and sexual abuse during the chaotic protests, officials said.
A related story comes from CBS in Denver:
An arrest warrant has been issued for a man accused of starting a fire during an Occupy Denver protest.
The fire happened in December near the state Capitol. Michael Clapper already pleaded guilty to arson but didn’t show up for his sentencing on Friday.
