Occupy Milwaukee Leader Arrested After Screaming “This Is a Hostile Takeover” Inside M&I Bank (Video)

Occupy Milwakee protest leader Austin Thompson was arrested yesterday outside of the M&I Bank at 770 N. Water St. after he led a group of far left protesters inside the bank yesterday and screamed, “THis is a hostile takeover!”
The local police were called and the far left loon was marched away in cuffs.

They’re lucky they didn’t get blasted.

His supporters want charges dropped against the organizer.
JS Online reported on the arrest:

A man who has been involved in past protests in Milwaukee was arrested Thursday during a protest by Occupy Milwaukee at a downtown bank, but within hours different versions of what led to the arrest had emerged.

A 25-year-old man identified as Austin Thompson entered the downtown M&I branch and “yelled something to the effect of ‘this is a hostile takeover’ causing at least one clerk in the bank to believe that they were being robbed,” said Anne Schwartz, police spokeswoman.

Police said they were not tying the man to the Occupy Milwaukee protests that started over the weekend, but noted he has been previously cited at demonstrations in Milwaukee.

However, people who identified themselves as participants in the gathering organized by Occupy Milwaukee said no one had threatened the bank or anyone else.

Big Government has more on the arrest.
