Jared Chase from New Hampshire was one of the #Occupy protesters arrested on terrorism charges this week in Chicago.

Brent Vincent Betterly was also arrested earlier this year in Miami and charged with disorderly intoxication.

Three #Occupy activists were arrested and held on terrorism conspiracy charges in Chicago this week. The three leftists tried to make Molotov cocktails for attacks during the NATO Summit.
FOX News reported:

Three men arrested earlier this week when police raided a Chicago apartment were being held on terrorism conspiracy charges Saturday stemming from allegations that they tried to make Molotov cocktails ahead of the NATO summit, but the first major dress rehearsal of this weekend’s large-scale protests was relatively peaceful.

Chicago police Lt. Kenneth Stoppa said the men face a bond hearing later Saturday on charges of conspiracy to commit terrorism, possession of an explosive or incendiary device and providing material support. Stoppa identified the men being held as Brian Church, 20, of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.; Jared Chase, 24, of Keene, N.H.; and Brent Vincent Betterly, 24. A police spokesman gave Betterly’s hometown as Oakland Park, Mass., but no such town exists. There is an Oakland Park, Fla., that is near Fort Lauderdale.

Their attorney, Sarah Gelsomino, told The Associated Press the men are “absolutely in shock and have no idea where these charges are coming from.”

Six others also arrested Wednesday in the raid of the South Side apartment where they were staying were released Friday without charges being filed.

One of those protesters, Occupy activist Darrin Annussek of Philadelphia, denied there were Molotov cocktails in the apartment or that raw materials had been compiled to make them.

US News reported:

Their attorney, Sarah Gelsomino, told AP the men were “absolutely in shock and have no idea where these charges are coming from.”

“The National Lawyers Guild deplores the charges against Occupy activists in the strongest degree,” Gelsomino said in a statement decrying the charges. “It’s outrageous for the city to apply terrorism charges when it’s the police who have been terrorizing activists and threatening their right to protest.”

Don’t expect this to get much national media attention.

UPDATE: Brent Betterly was also arrested last year after breaking into a Florida school.

  1. They continue to go about this all wrong as usual. Let them make the gas bombs then wait for them to show up with them. Shoot on sight.

    works for me

  2. Yet guilty as sin Bill Ayers remains free as a bird. Not right for the liberal arts colleges to teach and train our youth to hate America and be terrorists on borrowed public funds and then lock away people for being faithful to their teachings…The politicians , their media lackeys , and the college professors are the ones who belong in long term prison.

  3. Meanwhile, the ILLEGAL Kenyan Occupier of 1600 remains free…

  4. Does anybody else ever wonder how such diverse people from so many locations around the world get to a central place? Who funds the travel? Who pays the bills? THAT person would be part of any conspiracy involving domestic terrorism. How cute would it be to see the FBI show up at George Soros’s place or Bill Ayers because they sent in cash to fund those idiots.

    FBI agent to Ayers, “Hey Bill, long time no see. Things are different in today’s world. You aren’t going to wiggle free this time.”

  5. Why are those in our Republican leadership so quick to support Obama as born in this Country? They don’t want to investigate, although the evidence seems to warrant it. There has to be a reason, but what. I’m just lost.

  6. little off topic but,
    There may be hope for things to improve after all. I can live with reports like this one after the Zimmerman, treyvon fiasco.
    But don’t expect too much media attention for this story either.

    2 of 4 suspects wanted in Tampa soldier beating arrested

    photos at link. yep… suspects are young black ‘children’.


  7. When drones were spotted over Chicago. OBAMA MEANS BUSY!! :lol:

  8. Damn right-wing extremists! Oh… wait, they’re Leftists. I don’t suppose DHS is going to put Occupiers under a terrorist lens like returning military veterans?

  9. If you see a drone, get out quick! Or stop whatever you are doing and smile and wave.

    Sorry, but these to slugs needed to get the ____ scared out of them. Way too much time on their hands. Dreadlocks are old school.
    First, this administration denies Terrorism. Then they are now saying these to punks are terrorist. So, this administration needs to define the word are they combatants, screw-ups, racists, or are they TERRORISTS.

    You may want to give the Lawyers a heads up. Different punishment and it is all in the wording. We see it with the Zimmerman case.

    Here is a Terrorist, Fort Hood shooting: Texas army killer linked to September 11 terrorists
    Major Nidal Malik Hasan, Ayers was a Terrorist.

  10. OBAMA MEANS BUSY!! :lol:

    business, not busy.

  11. Maybe their punishment is join the GSA team or SSC porn team.

  12. “It’s outrageous for the city to apply terrorism charges when it’s the police who have been terrorizing activists and threatening their right to protest.”

    Go look at the prep the Chicago Police have made for the terro…er, protesters, and you will see that the statement is an outright lie.

  13. #8 Our government is full of people like Bill Whitaker . A politician can be blinded for a lot less that $150,000 … $1,500 is all it takes to turn the average politician’s back on his own mother.

  14. I guess Barry can now hold indefinitely without trial these 3 misunderstood and naive terrorists.

  15. Archer52

    This is for YOU!

    Professional letf shows up for the NATO SUMMIT


  16. Former Occupier calls OWS a cult, denounces rape coverups and alleges financial fraud:
