50 Occupiers show up at courthouse in support of bridge bomb suspects who in no way represent Occupy movement

After these five were arrested, an Occupy organizer said they “don’t share its non-violent views and don’t represent Occupy Cleveland” (except maybe for the one who signed the warehouse lease).

Many members of Occupy Cleveland continued to distance themselves from the alleged would-be bridge bombers yesterday by… showing up at their arraignment:

Dozens of members of Occupy Cleveland showed up at a Cleveland courthouse to support the five people charged in connection with an alleged plot to blow up a northeast Ohio bridge.

The five suspects — 21-year-old Connor Stevens, 24-year-old Joshua Stafford (aka “Skully”), 26-year-old Douglas Wright (aka “Cyco), 20-year-old Brandon Baxter (aka “Skabby”) and 37-year-old Anthony Hayne (aka “Tony” & “Billy”) – pleaded not guilty during their arraignment Monday morning.

The suspects had the charges — conspiracy and attempted use of explosive material to damage physical property affecting interstate commerce — read to them in open court.

In all, about 50 members of the Occupy Cleveland group went into courthouse.

Last week the city of Cleveland said it would not renew Occupy’s downtown encampment permit. So in fairness to these 50 Occupiers, it’s possible they only showed up at the courthouse because they needed a place to crash for a while:
