Nkrumah Tinsley was busted after his rant went viral on YouTube.

A protester was arrested in Zuccotti Park Wednesday after he threatened to fire bomb the city — and his rant went viral on YouTube, police said.

Nkrumah Tinsley, 29, was busted after cops saw a video of him claiming he would torch the city during Thursday’s mass protest posted online, police said.

“On the 17th (of Nov.), we’re going to burn New York City to the f---ing ground,” an angry Tinsley told a crowd of demonstrators in the video posted on Tuesday.


“In a few days, you’re going to see what a Molotov cocktail can do to Macy’s.”

When officers from the NYPD’s intelligence division saw the video, they immediately began working on trying to identify the raging man, police said.

“We didn’t want him out there [Thursday]. We wanted him in our custody,” said Paul Browne, top spokesman for the NYPD. “He was specific as to date, location and method for the fire bombing ...maybe it was just a rant, but we didn’t want to take that chance.”

Cops later spotted Tinsley at Zuccotti Park Wednesday and collared him about 5 p.m., police said. He was charged with making terroristic threats.

Tinsley’s parents described their son as mentally ill and recently started leaving the family’s University Heights, Bronx, home to support protesters downtown.

“I was really happy — he was going meeting people and talking to others, instead of sitting in his room talking to himself,” said his father, James Jacob, 66.

Jacob said his son got too excited within the crowd and understood the arrest.

“He was just running his mouth,” he said. “He’s got to learn. He’s got to pay for what he did.”

Wednesday night, many Occupied Wall Street demonstrators said they would never support Tinsley’s methods.

“[Tuesday\], a guy was handing out flyers to make Molotov coctails,” said Storm Shimp, 18, of Lancaster, Pa. “A group of us went up to him and said, ‘We don’t want that here — no one is going to take that from you.’”

“He’s absolutely speaking for himself,” said Jorden Eck, 20, a protester from upstate Binghamton. “It goes against the ideals of our movement.”

It’s not the first time Tinsley has been busted since the Occupied Wall Street movement started in Sept.

In October, Tinsley was arrested on Barclay St. for punching a cop in the face and kicking him on the ground during a protest. He was charged with felony assault for the attack and later released without bail.

He was still waiting to be arraigned on Wednesday night.

Jarhead's Comment;  And what was it that DHS JanetNat said about the Tea Party being terrorist.  There is no comparison between the Tea Party and these rats that crawled out of the sewer.  I believe the proper phrase directed at Obama's,Soros's, ACORNUTS and every sticking liberal......."UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES!"

"Mentally ill" or not, IMHO, deserves a one way ticket to Gitmo...

We all know who's behind these Progressive/Marxist demonstrations.......Soros, through his Progressive funded internet web sites.  And your right Metalchemist, "The occupiers are misled minions, college students, unemployed, anarchists, union members, etc....." 

And George Soros is using his playbook..........

Soros’s Five Steps to Bring Down a Country

The first one is form a shadow government using humanitarian aid as cover. This is what he just said. It’s kind of funny. It’s kind of fun. The first step he said is subversive activities. OK?

Step two: control the airwaves. Fund existing radio and TV outlets and take control over them or start your own outlets. Remember: take control of existing or start your own.

Step three: destabilize the state, weaken the government and build an anti-government kind of feeling in this country. You exploit an economic crisis or take advantage of existing crisis—pressure from the top and the bottom. This will allow you to weaken the government and build anti- government public sentiment.

Step four: you provoke an election crisis. You wait for an election. And during the election, you cry voter fraud.

Step five: take power. You stage massive demonstrations, civil disobedience, sit-ins, general strike, you encourage activism. You promote voter fraud and tell followers what to do through your radio and television stations.

 The'll still accuse those that give a s*** about this country but hate the despotic government of being "homegrown terrorists".

Just like Waco Tx, Ruby Ridge Id, Oklahoma City Ok,  etc, etc.... When we all know who the actual terrorists are.

They are residing in Washington D.C. and in most state capitols. Thet work clandestinely in the governmental acronym agencies amoung honest hard working real Americans. Misleading them, Brainwashing them.

The occupiers are misled minions, college students, unemployed, anarchists, union members, etc.....

In the begining the idea was decent then it was coopted / comprimised by the politicans.

Just like the tea party movement , only they don't resort to violence.

"Nation Under God Shall Have A New Birth Of Freedom."

I pledge allegiance to the Flag,
of the United States of America
and to the Republic for which it stands,
One Nation, under God
Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for All.

Ten Commandments of Human Relations

The fundamental issue in human ethical behavior is summarized by Jesus in what we have come to call "The Golden Rule." Jesus put it this way:

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets (Matthew 7:12 TNIV).

It asks us to test our treatment of others by putting ourselves in their place. Treat others the way you would want them to treat you in the same or similar circumstance.

Somebody took that principle and translated it into Ten Commandments of Human Relations. You may have seen this anonymous piece, for it circulates in a variety of settings. In case you have missed it, I am reproducing it here.

Speak to people. There is nothing as nice as a cheerful word of greeting.

Smile at people. It takes 72 muscles to frown, only 14 to smile.

Call people by name. It is music to anyone’s ears to hear the sound of his or her name.

Be friendly and helpful.

Be cordial. Speak and act as if everything you do is genuinely a pleasure. If it isn’t, learn to make it so.

Be genuinely interested in people. You can like almost anyone, if you try.

Be generous with praise, cautious with criticism.

Be considerate of the feelings of others. There are usually three sides to a controversy — yours, the other fellow’s, and the correct one.

Be alert to serve. What counts most in life is what you do for others.

Live with a good sense of humor, a generous dose of patience, and a dash of humility appropriate to being human.

Made in God’s image, all of us have something to be valued!

The great challenge in human experience is not work skills, but people skills. That is, research has shown that the majority of people who fail in their vocation do so because they cannot get along with people.

You might think through the meaning of these ten common-sense ideas for your own workplace and personal activity. But what about the larger setting for your daily life? These principles work everywhere you go, for they are about showing respect to the people you meet in all those places.

Made in God’s image, all of us have something to be valued, affirmed, and acknowledged by others. But let it begin with us to acknowledge it in them. As the cycle of giving and receiving enlarges, the human community comes alive.
