A man and woman arrested at the Occupy Boston protest on October 21, 2011 for dealing heroin had “joined the Occupy Boston movement,” according to a police report obtained exclusively by Big Government:
Officers were informed that a black male who answers to the street name “Shorty” along with a heavy set white female were distributing narcotics within and around the Tent City. The information stated that “Shorty” and the white female have a child with them and that they stay within Tent City and have joined the Occupy Boston movement.
Our sources suggest that the police believe the alleged heroin dealers were not originally part of the Occupy Boston protest, but had joined the demonstration to take advantage of the opportunity to sell drugs.
Regardless, the arrest is just the latest example of an Occupy demonstration harboring serious criminal activity.
