Three of the individuals arrested in the Wednesday apartment raid of an Occupy Chicago member were charged last night with conspiracy to commit terrorism. The suspects, Brian Church, 20, of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.; Jared Chase, 24, of Keene, N.H.; and Brent Vincent Betterly, 24, were detained for approximately 48 hours before finally being charged around 2 am this morning.
The suspects are apparently the same three individuals who published the recent viral video on YouTube of what they claimed was police harassment outside of the Chicago Police Department. Coincidentally, two of these suspects appear to have been at the first violent action of the NATO week protests on Tuesday night.
These individuals spoke out and taunted the police in that march through the south side of Chicago, dubbed the “F*ck the Police” march. After the police refused to take the protesters’ bait of torment and ridicule, the demonstrators declared they would “continue on their peaceful way.” However, video obtained exclusively by Breitbart News shows that the behavior of the apparent suspects and their cohorts was nothing remotely close to peaceful.
The suspects are accused of attempting to make Molotov cocktails.
UPDATE: As of 11:17 am CST The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that police were using informants inside the home that was raided.
