A New York doctor who was active in the Occupy Wall Street movement of 2011 was charged Saturday with possessing a large quantity of chemicals used in bomb-making, hours after authorities conducted a raid on the Ridgewood house in which he lived, officials said.

Given that I don’t trust either side, I’m going to wait to see how this plays out.

it looks like the doctors are really upset about ObambiCare, after all....
Never forget what these people are really like. They have no real conscience and if they kill to achieve their goals, well sacrifices will have to be made for the greater good. They are scum. Never ever trust anyone who voted for Obama. They are capable of any betrayal or atrocity.

For those who don't know, Ridgewood NJ is a chichi upscale suburb full of 1%ers.
I'm guessing Doctor Bomber here used to be one of them, but has since fallen on bitter hard times and wanted to get him some payback.
I'd love to know the circumstances that lead him to becoming an unemployed doctor.

“Rivera was charged with second degree recklessly creating a risk of widespread injury or damage; fourth degree failure to mitigate against recklessly creating a risk of widespread injury or damage; third degree unlawful possession of a destructive device; fourth degree unlawful possession of a stun gun; fourth degree unlawful possession of a large capacity ammunition magazine; and second degree unlawful possession of an assault firearm.”
As much as I despise Occutards and everything they represent, I find these “charges” to be absolute B.S..
This is a typical jack booted ATF attempt at misdirection.
Precursor chemicals? Large capacity magazine? Unlawful possession of an assault firearm?
Have you ever noticed how they manage to classify what would be in most circles a modest gun collection and reloading supplies into an extremist arsenal and potential bomb making materials?
Oh, it's the peoples republic of New York....never-mind

Malpractice and incompetence would be my guess.

"I'd love to know the circumstances that lead him to becoming an unemployed doctor."
I think we can guess. Any doctor with people skills that are better than the average rabid skunk's can find work.

Who ever heard of an "unemployed" doctor with a valid license to practise in NYC. A-holes in NYC will go to witch doctors fer crissakes. This is a bullshit story, with key facts omitted.
Where was he born? Incompetent Third World medic?
