Tea Party members arrested still at ZERO.
RIDGEWOOD — A 60-year-old doctor with ties to the Occupy Wall Street movement has been charged with possessing a large amount of chemicals commonly used for making bombs and explosive devices, authorities said on Saturday.
Roberto E. Rivera of 183 Union St. was arrested following a multiagency investigation, that included the FBI and Bergen County Bomb Squad. Authorities found several chemicals, assault rifles and other weapons in Rivera’s home, Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli said.
Rivera was charged with recklessly creating a risk of widespread injury and unlawful possession of a destructive device, a large-capacity ammunition magazine and a stun gun, prosecutors said. His bail was set at $1 million.
In October last year, Rivera was photographed by Bloomberg News for a feature on Occupy protesters. He is quoted saying, “I’m glad that at last the youth of America is able to stand on two feet and take a position that millions of people around the world have taken that they will not be intimidated by the capitalist free market paradigm and they will fight against gross inequality in distribution of income and assets.”
Sounds like the typical leftists demanding equal outcome instead of equal opportunity.
Occupy Wall Street organizers distanced themselves from Rivera. William Dobbs, a spokesman, said the movement is about protesting “Wall Street greed and is firmly committed to non-violence.”
