Bridge bomb plot: FBI and Dept of Justice say Occupy Cleveland NOT under investigation though suspects were actively involved in group
CLEVELAND, Ohio – FBI officials today said that while the members of a group arrested in an attempt to blow up a bridge over the Cuyahoga Valley National Park were also involved in the Occupy Cleveland movement, that organization is not under federal investigation.

"Let me be clear, the FBI and Department of Justice are not conducting an investigation of any specific group," said Steven M. Dettelbach, U.S Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio. "We do not investigate movements or groups, we investigate individuals."

The Occupy movement is never identified by name in the affidavit filed by federal officials today, but interviews have since indicated that the five arrested had been involved with – and somewhat dissatisfied with – the Occupy Cleveland movement in Public Square.

Still, that the five men arrested were connected with that movement – including attending an Oct. 21, 2011, event on Cleveland’s Public Square – had caused ripples throughout the day.

So, why isn't Department of Homeland Security involved? They are concerned about "right-wing extremism":

Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment
7 April 2009
(U) Prepared by the Extremism and Radicalization Branch, Homeland Environment Threat Analysis Division. Coordinated with the FBI.

Occupy Cleveland Denounces Bridge Bomb Plot

...

All five men who are charged are also members of the Occupy Cleveland protest movement. But local organizers strongly distanced themselves from their alleged actions.

“Anybody that says that they’re gonna do some violence in the name of Occupy is obviously not part of Occupy. We do not condone any violence, anything like that. This is all about taking a stand for our rights. Doing stuff like that is inevitably gonna get your rights taken away,” said Occupy Cleveland’s Randy Ball.

The Occupy Cleveland movement also released a statement on Tuesday that said in part, “While the persons arrested Monday evening by the FBI have participated in Occupy Cleveland events, they were in no way representing or acting on behalf of Occupy Cleveland. Occupy Cleveland has affirmed the principals of non-violence since its inception on October 6, 2011.”

The suspects appeared in U.S. District Court Tuesday afternoon. They were charged with conspiracy and the attempted use of explosive material to damage affecting interstate commerce.

Who gives a flying fuck what the FBI or DOJ say anymore. They are criminals.
