The co-founder of Tea Party Patriots was captured on video jumping a fence and fleeing into Queens’ “Boulevard of Death” after he was arraigned for illegally possessing a handgun at New York’s LaGuardia Airport.

Mark Meckler was charged Thursday with criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree, a Class C felony, for traveling with his Glock handgun and 19 cartridges without a New York permit.

Although Meckler seems to relish this spotlight while speaking on Fox News or at tea party events, he wasn’t eager to speak to the CBS News affiliate in New York when their cameras caught up with him leaving the courthouse.

With several photographers in pursuit, Meckler ran into Queens Boulevard — which came to be known as “The Boulevard of Death” after 72 people died trying to cross the street between 1992 and 2000.

The tea party spokesman faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted of the gun charge.

Well, so much for that big 'ol clean slate these people try to sell.

After 2012, the tea party baggers will evaporate to nothing. Vaporized. Sarah Palin, who's she again??? Wasn't that just some weird dream I was having?

LOL

I should re-title this as:

"The Fearless Leader & Co-Founder of Tea Party Patriots was Captured."

I've been posting it as Tea Party Airline Hijacking attempt foiled!

Because I'm just a bastard that way and I'm sure he was going to hijack it and fly the plane into Liptons plant or something like that.

Besides, he'll just get fines and will have no problem paying them as soon as the SB1867 funds are dispersed to the Tea party's Military Complex elitists. Now let me pull a stunt like that and I'd be detained indefinitely and tortured relentlessly.

So I wonder why he ran across the boulevard of death to get away. These Tea Party leaders are pussies. This is so funny and telling of the character of these fearless leaders. AND I mean FEARLESS

It's obvious that my calling it a hijacking attempt was correct. I can't say for sure what building full of people he was going to crash it into, but, I'm sure as time goes on, their target will be revealed.

Yeah right, puzzled, you wish!

In November 2010, the Tea Party occupied the polls. On that day, 20 states turned from blue to red with the election of over 680 new Republican state legislators and Governors. In addition, we saw the largest turnover in congress in over 70 years. I believe it is time for you to start paying attention to their ideas before the USA plunges into economic chaos like our friends in Ireland, UK, Italy, Portugal, Greece, and the rest of Europe. These countries are proof the Progressivism and Socialism does not work and we need to change course now. What has the Obnoxious White Students movement accomplished?

I don't have to wish. It's already happening!
