In another OWS feces incident, Occupy Wall Street Protesters were caught on tape dumping large quantities of human waste down the stairs at One Chase Manhattan Plaza and 20 minutes later at a Chase ATM vestibule on Water Street in Manhattan. Somehow, these actions do not seem to reflect the often touted 99% of the population.
A quick thinking witness jotted down the licence plate number on the van carting the nasty concoction, which led to the arrest of Jordan Brooks Amos, 25, of Philadelphia, who was driving without a license and also found with a stun gun. Amos apparently was in charge of delivering food to protesters. Yum. The other protesters have yet to be identified.
A Classy Family
Jordan Amos (an alias, according to a Department of Corrections Spokeswoman) may have a soft side, however. He got in trouble again while out on bail for his important feces delivering activities (which will undeniably make a difference in the fight against corporate greed).
His trouble continued while defending his stated wife, Michelle Obando, 21, who was in court after being arrested during an Occupy protest in November. She was caught bringing a knife into the courthouse and, when it was confiscated, became agitated and yelled, "It's my property. It's my knife," she yelled. "I bought it. It's mine." Perhaps she does not agree with spreading the wealth. She then allegedly jumped over the x-ray machine and grabbed the knife. At that point, her doting husband jumped to her defence and was promptly re-arrested and is currently sitting in Rikers Island.
Occupy Wall Street Reaction
Not surprisingly, Occupy Wall Street is not condemning the actions, and a spokesperson treated this incident like most of these incidents are treated, by saying, "This was an action that individuals autonomously took it upon themselves to do for their own reasons of which we are not aware." Another spokesperson seemed to endorse the repulsive act, saying, "Not all actions against banks are Occupy related," said Kanene Holder, "However," she added, "we cannot control the ways in which people are searching for American justice. Big banks stink!" She also speculates that perhaps "It could also be a group of people trying to sabotage and sully our reputation." Oh yes, that must be it, Kanene.
Perhaps when the movement stands up against criminal and violent behavior, its members will think twice before committing these horrible acts that only hurt regular citizens. The mainstream media has barely reported this story.
Mr. Amos, or whatever your name is, who are you hurting? Do you think the 1% will be cleaning up the feces? Will it be the 1% who has to go to the ATM to get cash for dinner or a movie after work, perhaps?
And to those in OWS who sit by while individuals who identify with the movement are arrested for all sorts of infractions time and time again, will you not denounce these acts?
