Two Occupy Wall Street protesters were arrested last night for assaulting a police officer with a pipe. One of the arrested protesters, Alexander Penley, is an attorney.

41-year-old Alexander Penley is also one of the #Occupy Wall Streeet organizers.  He discussed the goals of the movement in a TV interview back in October.

The Gothamist reported:

According to police, the two men who were arrested in front of the Sixth Street Community Center last night allegedly assaulted an NYPD sergeant with a metal pipe in front of the Starbucks on Astor Place. One of the men, 41-year-old Alexander Penley, is an attorney and has been an Occupy Wall Street organizer since the movement began in the fall.

Penley, along with 30-year-old Nicholas Thommen, were arrested around 10 p.m. after what witnesses described as a violent scuffle between the two men and police officers, and are charged with a litany of offenses, including assaulting a police officer, menacing, criminal possession of a weapon, resisting arrest, and inciting a riot.

Lovely people.

  1. Wonder what the Bar Association will have to say about Mr. Penley? Should be disbarred.

  2. Penley, along with 30-year-old Nicholas Thommen, were arrested around 10 p.m. after what witnesses described as a violent scuffle between the two men and police officers, and are charged with a litany of offenses, including assaulting a police officer, menacing, criminal possession of a weapon, resisting arrest, and inciting a riot.

    The extensive list of those NOT arrested for inciting riots includes Louis Farrakhan, members of the NBPP, Barack Obama, employees of ABC, CBS, and NBC, John Stewart, Bill Maher, and many, many, many more.

    They’re special. They’re ALLOWED.

  3. basically should be called attempted murder and should have been shot by the officer

  4. I can’t even count how many times this happened at Tea Party rallies. Because it didn’t.

    Again, how many times did this stuff happen with the hippies in the late 60s and early 70s but never got covered because there was no new media?

  5. Time to give Thanks to the Police who must Deal with Occupiers.

    What none of the anti-police crowd will admit is that quisling politicians have placed officers in an impossible situation. They have asked ordinary police forces to face down a movement that openly advocates for a revolution. Arresting revolutionaries and turning them loose hours later does nothing to stop them from seizing new buildings, vandalizing more businesses or attacking more police. Instead, it emboldens them and adds to the criminality.

    But police must face them once more – knowing their every action will be videotaped and photographed by dozens or even hundreds of Occupiers. Knowing that they will be assaulted, intimidated, harassed and more by protesters and hackers who act more like the Mafia than peaceniks. And knowing that politicians will constantly undercut their ability to shut down the crimes of these protests until eventually this will cease to be a police matter. Then desperate politicos will likely call for National Guard troops to quell the uprising.

    Yet the police keep protecting and serving – not just the whims of the protesters – but the desires of all law-abiding citizens who don’t want to turn over America to those who are truly revolting.

    Obama has put his foot into everything but no mention of cops. No beer summits just what fits into his political career.

  6. off topic – anyone else noticed this?

    there are no longer comments after articles on foxnews

    Only some articles. Every media site does this now — selectively disable comments on certain stories. Especially stories involving black-on-nonblack violence.

    Seriously — go back to wherever you thought comments were disabled (was it Foxnews.com or a local Fox affiliate?) — and click on a few more stories. You will find that comments are allowed at some stories, but disallowed at others.

    Sometimes they know they are lying or spinning — and they can’t have commenters pulling the wool back from folks’ eyes.

  9. Invisible Voices in their latest video on JOSEPH KONY are encouraging students to paint red and stencil their strange symbol.
    It is a stylized inverted A for Anarchy.
    They want to “COVER THE NIGHT” on APRIL 30th. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_Ue6REkeTA

    Apart from the laundry list of factual inaccuracies and distortions in both their KONY 2012 videos, research reveals the creepy spirit of Invisible Voices:

    The A: This symbol is so important to their message, they dedicated a Youtube video to “make your own.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_JufdQIs76g

    And encourage students to put it everywhere: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pbuHC3XNWMo&feature=relmfu

    Let’s look elsewhere if A has any significance. It is seen on flags at #OWS camps, usually inside a circle.

    http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=anarchy+a&view=detail&id=387B7CFD26EAB5A5E7DF298AD32A3F4ACB117A65&first=0&qpvt=anarchy+a&FORM=IDFRIR

    A for Anarchy: “Popular among school aged children today, this symbol for anarchy fits the message that pervades the most popular video games, role-playing games, movies and television. The lines of the “A” often extend outside the circle. To many Satanists and other fast-growing occult groups it represents their slogan, “do what thou wilt.” A former occultist explained that it represents the ASMODEAS: a demonic force driving teenagers toward sexual perversion and suicide.” http://www.crossroad.to/Books/symbols1.html

    This is a bit of a chilling coincidence given that the KONY 2012 director stripped, went off masturbating in public and has been detained ostensibly for his own safety.

    Given symbolism is so important to this strange group of Liberals who are actually redefining crass and money-grubbing, using the name of a murderous warlord to raise money for themselves along with their stated goal to keep the current administration in office, to raise funds amongst gullible students, then is there an unstated but in-your-face reason for why they choose APRIL 30th to ‘COVER THE NIGHT” in red – the color of blood? Type in April 30th and what do we find?

    The hard core Left of Invisible Voices picked the day ADOLPH HITLER committed suicide, a day of black and red mourning for NAZI socialists and neo-NAZIs, April 30, 1945, which happen also to be the colors of the NAZI flag.

    So is Invisible Voices actually implying a superstitious power convergence based on t-shirts, picking up trash and painting walls to do something about Joseph Kony, a murderous warlord, to raise money out of the pockets of students to carry out defacing in cities across the world during the night of the anniversary of Adolph Hitler’s suicide, under the benign cover of ‘caring?’ It’s a convenient all-nighter in red to slide into the Socialist’s reddest holiday, MAY 1st, the Worker’s holiday, so #OWS wants a General Strike (called #M1GS) to celebrate. From Joseph Kony to Workers Solidarity against illegal forclosures, evil bankers, in less than 24 hours.

    Kony’s general whereabouts are already known by security forces in the region. Does Invisible Voices actually need him alive for a little longer at the expense of local villagers, to let some money be made off him, first, after Invisible Voices has led our youth into sly Hitler commemorations? What is really going on?

    I re-track that statement above. Holder and Obama do speak about Cops in a horrible light.

  13. I smell a stench in the “AYERS”

  14. Mayor Bloomberg plans to call for outlawing pies.

  15. Why wasn’t he shot down like the dog he is?

    Liberalism is a culture of hate and violence.

  16. If any of the charges are felonies and stick he should lose his law license. Although, I am not sure that in New York being a criminal and being a lawyer are incompatible.
