    Bridge bomb plot: Suspects were active in Occupy Cleveland, even as movement slowed to a crawl
    Source: The Plain Dealer /

    CLEVELAND, Ohio --
    Occupy Cleveland had Tuesday circled on the calendar.
    After months of low visibility, leaders of the protest organization formed during last fall's anti-Wall Street movement hoped to recapture the public's attention with a peaceful weekend festival leading up to a May Day demonstration.

    By noon, they were back in the spotlight -- but not for the reasons they intended.

    Five men involved in Occupy Cleveland stand accused of plotting to blow up a bridge over Cuyahoga Valley National Park in Sagamore Hills. The organization itself has not been implicated, but the arrests prompted organizers to cancel their May Day protest and instead spend the day distancing themselves from what they characterized as a fringe element.

    "While the group arrested Monday evening by the FBI associated with Occupy Cleveland, they were in no way representing or acting on behalf of Occupy Cleveland or the event that was planned for later today," the organization said in an email. "Occupy Cleveland has affirmed principles of nonviolence since its inception on Oct. 6, 2011."

    5. why are you so

    ready to convict them? aren't they innocent until proven guilty? Remember that even the Hutaree Militia were found not guilty in the courts. This is the FBI trying to tarnish the reputation of Occupy and people like you are already falling for it.

    Just sad

    9. My thought exactly. The was an operation by the Fed to discredit OWS by association ...

    on a specific date.

    11. In other words, this is a conspiracy by the Obama Administration?

    You do remember that he's in charge of the Executive Branch, right? Or are you suggesting he's too weak to manage his Administration.

    15. I wish I understood why this stuff is happenning. Maybe he's pandering to conservative Dems?

    I don't know, but he is our only hope and not shutting Gitmo, assassinating foreign nationals in their own countries under the protest of those countries, assassinating Americans on foreign soil, not bringing Wall Street, the banks, heath insurance companies, big oil, under some sort of control is bothersome. I hope he at least is working on his re-election just to give himself four years without worrying about re-election to do the things he promised and was elected on.

    16. Or maybe being an "occupier" doesn't make you a candidate for sainthood?

    It's both funny and appalling that so many people are looking for outlandish excuses, such as "they must be right-wingers because they look dirty!", because apparently no human being ever associated with OWS has led anything less than a completely blameless life. And too, there's never been such a thing as left wing fringe groups.

    12. Either false flag or stummbling idots being ginned into something more,.....

    maybe a pretext to start sending American dissidents to "Gitmo" or the onshore equivalent, after all the President has been given the right to have Americans killed without due process. Look at the treatment afforded Bradley Manning. In some ways W started a level of conduct towards US citizens and other soveriegn citizens that has been barely muted by this President. This one area (as well the inability to bring the banks and Wall Street to heel) is one of the few areas I have concerns about with the President. I still support him because Romney is ever so much even worse.

    7. Something smells here, and it ain't the Cuyahoga River...

    Too many "Occupy affiliated" disrupters across the country trying to give Occupy a black eye for 'harboring violent elements'.

    Coincidence? I think NOT.

    Sadly, too many people will believe that "news" at face value. I've already heard acquaintances say variations of 'I supported Occupy in the beginning, but not now that it's turning violent'

    10. Meanwhile, the tea baggers were openly walking around with guns and making threats toward

    President Obama (and other Democrats), and using the most vile, racist language in their attacks. Yet the media all but ignored it.

    With Occupy, if one loner even suggests something slightly "mean"…it's a headline at every media outlet in the country.
    Yep, the teabaggers were worse./s

    14. Paid right wingers out to discredit Occupy

    ......... this is getting to be an almost daily occurrence - bad publicity for Occupy - great publicity for righties and corporations.

    As much as I hate the Occutards, you got to give the FBI credit on this one. The FBI seems to find the stupidest people in any movement, pretend to be their friend, and help them set up bomb plots. Remember these alleged terrorists from Florida?

    Yes because we all know that dirty hippies are right wingers *cough*

    I did enjoy the one DUmmy calling out the other for not remembering that "the feds" includes his royal Obamaness.
    Good men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because
    rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Perhaps that is because except for a PEACEABLE display of 2nd Amendment rights on the part of a few (VERY FEW) individuals, NONE of what you say actually happened.
    I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.

    These people should all open up Philly Soft Pretzel Factory stores because they can twist them with the best of them. No surprise because these are the same people who still think Jared Loughner is a right winger. These guys could all be wearing Che t-shirts and they'd still paint them as right wingers. Kind of funny if you think about it.
