New Low for #Occupy Movement… Protester Charged With Lynching (Video)

The #Occupy criminal movement has put together one heck of a record:

9 deaths, 5 found dead in tents, One found dead after 2 days
2 murders
Tens of millions of dollars in damages, layoffs, vandalism, law breaking
– Multiple Rapes
– Thousands of arrests
Public masturbation
Child molestation and baby abuse

Now this…
An #Occupy LA goon was charged with lynching this week.
US News reported:

Sergio Ballesteros, 30, has been involved in Occupy LA since the movement had its California launch in October. But this week, his activism took an abrupt turn when he was arrested on a felony charge — lynching.

Under the California penal code, lynching is “taking by means of a riot of any person from the lawful custody of any peace officer,” where “riot” is defined as two or more people threatening violence or disturbing the peace. The original purpose of the legal code section 405(a) was to protect defendants in police custody from vigilante mobs — especially black defendants from racist groups.

Whether the police allegation in this case will be pursued by by California’s courts is uncertain. But the felony charge — which carries a potential four-year prison sentence — is the kind of accusation that can change the landscape for would-be demonstrators.

Here’s video of Sergio Ballesteros after his arrest. He’s the one who is face down on the cement.

Well, come to think of it, the Ku Klux Klan was a branch of the Democrat Party so in a way this arrest makes some sense. Right?

    Yes Sergio Ballesteros used to be such a good golfer . Rico laws, lynching laws should all be used against these mauradding mobs of political bandits who barge into banks, restaurants, stores, and private homes of company CEOs…and they should be waterboarded until they cough up the names of people inside our own government who are coordinating these mobs…corrupt politicians, FBI agents, Police , teachers…people who are using their public positions to plot harassment and violance toward private citizens. Then those people need to be squeezed until they cough up their contacts to russian spies, chinese and Iranian spies, Castro and Chavez spies pushing la revolucion.

    Ok, while I feel that ows has gotten enough of a rap sheet all by itself, this is just piling-on, IMO. There is a classic sense of what lynching is and it has to do with vigilante justice, taking someone from police custody by force to exact their own punishment. This, however, isn’t that. I’m sure there are plenty of “real” issues to charge folks with, but not this.

    Call me a bit sensitive, as a southerner, but that’s my take on it.

  • Rose

    Yeah – this makes sense – KKK- SEIU – ACORN – Ella Baker Foundation – Black Panthers – Weather Underground – OWS…

    They just keep getting dirtier – as in “more in need of a BATH and deoderant”…

    This is very real, as is. There is no difference in ultimate purpose and they don’t care if they hurt the police in the process – to WHATEVER degree. OR other bystanders.

    And at the 3:14 mark one of these nitwits says, “Is this what we pay taxes” mumble, mumble. Only a OWS obama nitwit could actually believe they contribute to this country.

    These city officials and courts that support violent groups just because they are DIMS, over and above law abiding citizens and police behaving legitimately – they do so to their own peril, these groups have already tried to invade a lot of local govt buildings, and it won’t be long til some of those bureaucrats who work in nice clean offices will regret destroying their only line of protection between themselves and rampaging animals they have foolishly encouraged to their own detriment. And they will be held totally accountable for encouraging those animals.

    And don’t dare suggest again that it is an inconsequential thing for street rabble in acts of violence to wrest prisoners from the police.

    THAT is simply and nothing else but INSANE. As long as the Police are generally behaving according to proper authorization, to interfere with them when the access remains open to go through channels, lawyers and courts, that just breaks ALL bonds of Community entirely.

    The article clearly states…Under the California penal code, lynching is “taking by means of a riot of any person from the lawful custody of any peace officer,” where “riot” is defined as two or more people threatening violence or disturbing the peace.

    All we need to be concerned with is…Is it a law in the state that they are in and did they break that law…Yes and Yes…case closed… 🙂

    Yet the TEA Party and Republicans are the real danger to America and Democracy according to the MFM, DNC and Progressives.

    No. Not right, but rather left.

    After all, some mammals are more equal than others, and they should be kept of being so. Orwell would be proud. Ironically.

    Ok, y’all, I read the article, and several others. Sure, the California definition of lynching is just taking someone from police custody, that was my point: the public ‘intrinsic’ definition is loaded with much more than that. Plus, there have been NO lynching charges upheld yet in CA where they’re showing up. My point there being: the police likely have other better charges that would stick rather than using this. So, Rose and Kathy, I’m not implying that there is a problem with the lynching law itself, this seems to be a misapplication.

    Part of the problem with this story, at this point, is there aren’t enough details for us clearly add this to the OWS laundry list. Lynching as both a word and concept has certain baggage with it. Regardless of the legal details, it implies there is a downtrodden victim (this guy) and the horrible oppressor (police). That the cops are using this particular charge, yet the DAs are basically refusing to prosecute it, says that neither the charge, nor the infraction that incited it should be taken seriously; and, oh by the way, the cops are oppressing ‘us’.

    If they’re going to go to the trouble of arresting these guys, how about making charges that are prosecutable? OWS is way past its shelf date, can this just be done with yet?! I think it would be more effective to get hold of the general assembly minutes (if they kept them) and charge the leadership with all the cleanup and city/county legal fees that each gathering incurred. When they whine tell them a bench warrant awaits if they don’t start a payback plan with a reasonable and realistic payoff date w/I the next 6 years. And hold not just one person, but anyone mentioned by name in the minutes responsible. They wanted this to be a community revolt/occupation, well it’ll be a community recompense as well.

    Occupy Arrest Counter:

  • Sadly, no necessary changes are going to take place in U.S. Politics, such as prohibiting big corporate money being used in election campaigns; and U.S. Tax Code reform that eliminates the U.S. elites not paying their fair proportionate share of taxes, until blood is shed. A lot of it unfortunately.
    The Occupy Movement is a noble cause for true patriots and a good starting point. However, the elites do not and will not abide by the spirit of the U.S. Constitution.
    The goon squads you see on display, in military-style regalia, are not there to uphold The Constitution. They are there to protect the assets, and lifestyle of the elite one per cent (1%).
    The situation is as simplistic as that. Look at the obvious. It is in plain view.
