Yup. They’re just like the tea party.
Police arrested two Obama-endorsed Occupy Boston protesters and charged them with distribution of a class heroin and possession with intent to distribute a class A drug within 1,000 feet of a school zone. They were dealing out of their tent.
Verum Serum reported this from the Boston Herald:
Two Occupy Boston members have been arrested on drug charges, Boston police said yesterday.
Bostonians Isaac Bell, 34, and Charlene Dumont, 31, were both charged with distribution of a class A drug (heroin) and possession with intent to distribute a class A drug within 1,000 feet of a school zone, police say.
The 6-year-old child who was living with them in a tent is now staying with family members, police said.
The arrests were made Friday after police said they received “multiple reports of drug activity in and around” Occupy Boston’s Rose Kennedy Greenway encampment.
Also this weekend, protest-minded vandals made their mark on 21 downtown buildings, police said.
At the Bank of America building at 100 Federal St., vandals spray-painted “Occupy,” “Bad for America” and “Yer building is crowding our skyline,” while the international anarchist symbol was painted on buildings at 100 Summer St., 101 Arch St. and 65 Franklin St.
