Occupy Albany Threatening, Harassing Police Officer’s Family (Use Wanted Poster With Map to His Home)
Looks like the dredges of the earth, er, I mean, Occupy Albany is back at it again. Last week we saw them offering up their children as human shields to defend against pepper spray.
Then, they were seen causing nearly $30,000 in damage to a holiday lights display in the park.
And now they’re threatening and harassing a police officer who had the audacity to defend himself during the Occupy Albany eviction.
Via the Times Union:
Police are taking steps to protect an Albany police officer whose family has received threats after he was publicly identified for using pepper spray to quell Occupy Albany protesters last week.
A “wanted” poster seeking information including the home address, telephone numbers and “map to home” of Officer Richard Gorleski was posted Wednesday on a Facebook page used by Occupy Albany.
Of course, being the Mensa candidates that they all are, the protestors can’t even harass people successfully:
Gorleski’s address and telephone numbers are not publicly listed. But Gorleski’s father, a Troy resident who has the same first name as his son, began receiving unsettling telephone calls from blocked numbers this week. Troy police said they have taken measures to keep watch on the residence.
“We have, in fact, been in contact with Officer Gorleski about his concerns, and they will be our utmost priority,” said Troy police Capt. John Cooney. “We are aware of Rich’s concerns, and we’re going to take it very seriously and maintain a safe environment for his family, as we would for any person in that position.”
What has raised the ire of the Occupiers?
Gorleski used pepper spray when, according to police officials, the crowd grew unruly and converged on Gorleski and his horse.
Apparently self defense is frowned upon by the 99%.
At this point, Occupy Albany has slowly graduated from trespassing, to vandalism, and now to harassment.
Why wouldn’t they really?
District Attorney, David Soares, has made it clear that prosecuting crimes is not a priority of his when it comes to politcally charged cases such as Occupy Albany. Soares is an enabler who has empowered himself to pick and choose which laws people should adhere to based on his own personal opinions.
Now the Albany police force will have to pay for the spinelessness of the DA.
Hopefully it won’t end violently.
I’ll give you three of them here. Please read the rest at Doug Ross’ website:
In 2007, Ron Paul criticized Abraham Lincoln for using military force to end slavery during the Civil War: “He shouldn’t have gone to war… Slavery was phased out in every other country in the world and the way I’m advising that it should have been done is do like the British Empire did; you buy the slaves and release them.”
In 2009, Ron Paul said even the Nazi Holocaust was not sufficient cause for interventionism. He said, among other things, “No, I wouldn’t. I wouldn’t risk American lives to [end the Holocaust].”
Ron Paul believes in pretty much every discredited, crackpot conspiracy theory you’ve ever heard of.
In other words, Paul believes that two significant moments of greatness in American history were carried out improperly.
And he loves his tinfoil hat.
Seems electable to me…
Yea, cause all the ‘dudes’ I know have time to squeeze in their 90th round of golf while their wife is sipping Mai Tais in a $2000 sundress.

Forget all of those Drudge Report headlines about the vacationing first lady’s $2,000 sun dress, the president’s six-plus hour golf outings, and their three-hour, $100-a-person dinner tasting at posh Alan Wong’s restaurant in Honolulu.
Because the president’s 2012 campaign has a new Joe Sixpack theme: “He’s just a dude!”
Meanwhile, that ‘dude’ is currently on a taxpayer funded, $4 million vacation stay in Hawaii.
More importantly, no self-respecting dude would ever, EVER, be photographed looking like this:
Via Rasmussen Reports™:
Mitt Romney has now jumped to his biggest lead ever over President Obama in a hypothetical Election 2012 matchup. It’s also the biggest lead a named Republican candidate has held over the incumbent in Rasmussen Reports surveying to date.
The latest national telephone survey finds that 45% of Likely U.S. Voters favor the former Massachusetts governor, while 39% prefer the president. Ten percent (10%) like some other candidate in the race, and six percent (6%) are undecided.
While I still maintain that Romney has the best path to the nomination, I do not buy these polls that have the other named candidates trailing Obama. Despite differences amongst conservatives, they will undoubtedly unite behind whatever candidate is challenging the President, save for Ron Paul.

Venezuelan dictator, Hugo Chavez, who was once famously stricken with the smell of hope emanating from America when Obama first came into office, is now claiming that the government he runs has infected him, and other Latin American leaders, with cancer.
A day after officials announced the cancer diagnosis of Argentina’s president, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez wondered Wednesday if the United States could be infecting the region’s leaders with the illness.
Five current or former Latin American presidents have battled cancer in the past few years, including Chavez himself, who claims to have beaten an unspecified cancer.
Chavez prefaced his remarks at a military event in Caracas by saying, “I don’t want to make any reckless accusations,” but the Venezuelan president said he was concerned by something he finds “very, very, very strange.”
Perhaps delusion is one of the first symptoms suffered when you come to the realization that you’ve gone from accusing George Bush of being the devil, to knowing you’re about to meet the devil.

Disgraced former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner was caught in online trysts with numerous women, but RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that according to one of his mistresses, he expressed wanting a threesome – with another man.
In old conversation excerpts obtained by RadarOnline.com from mistress Traci Nobles’ proposal for a tell-all book, the former politician brings up the topic of “3 ways” and reveals that the idea of being with another man is a turn on.
“I’m not really talking about other chicks… How about with another guy?” Weiner asked Nobles.

And this, ladies and gentleman, is just another demonstration of how United States Marines are BAD ASS.
Via the Daily Mail:
A U.S. Marine officer has told the incredible story of how he survived a street robbery by plugging bullet holes in his body with his fingers.
Lieutenant Colonel Karl Trenker, 29, of Miramar, Florida, was shot three times as he confronted two men who had stolen a gold chain from him.
He said he used his battlefield training from Afghanistan and Iraq to stem blood from chest wounds by shoving his finger into the gaping wound.
‘I put my fingers in the holes to stop the bleeding and ran back to the truck and told my kids I had been shot, but not to worry.’
The armed assailants have been arrested and now face attempted murder charges.
Lieutenant Colonel Karl Trenker – Calm in the face of fire…
