Occupy Wall Street activist arrested for weapons, explosives

Morgan Gliedman
The New York Post reports:
The privileged daughter of a prominent city doctor, and her boyfriend — a Harvard grad and Occupy Wall Street activist — have been busted for allegedly having a cache of weapons and a bombmaking explosive in their Greenwich Village apartment.

Morgan Gliedman — who is nine-months pregnant — and her baby daddy, Aaron Greene, 31, also had instructions on making bombs, including a stack of papers with a cover sheet titled, “The Terrorist Encyclopedia,’’ sources told The Post yesterday.

People who know Greene say his political views are “extreme,” the sources said.
In addition to being an Occupy Wall Street activist, Aaron Greene is reported to have had "five prior run-ins with the police, with the charges including, assault, and weapons possession."  The weapons found in their apartment allegedly include "a commercial replica of a grenade launcher; a modified 12 gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun; ammo; and nine high-capacity rifle magazines."  The explosives found include HMTD which is sufficiently powerful that it led police to evacuate several buildings.

The reason for the police visit to the Greene and Gliedman apartment was that Gliedman, daughter of privilege and graduate of exclusive schools, was wanted for "alleged credit-card theft."

Greene is not the only would-be Occupy bomber.  Last April, the FBI arrested five Occupy Cleveland members involved in a plot that included a plan to blow up a bridge.
