Forum Post: Huffington Post Claims Murderer Linked to Occupy

Posted 2 years ago on March 28, 2012, 10:43 a.m. EST by onray (3)

The Huffington Post has written a totally misleading article linking a homeless man, Ryan Beauchamp, who killed someone on the L train in Brooklyn, with the Occupy Movement.

The only connection this guy had to Occupy: Beauchamp is homeless and apparently had sought food and shelter at Occupy. He was arrested there, but probably was not really a protestor.

It's very irresponsible for the Huffington Post to publish this when Beauchamp is a criminal at best and maybe an agent provocateur.

Many homeless people can become very irresponsible and can become criminals. We hardly need wonder why! Even HuffP doesn't suggest that he was an organizer of OWP - but OWP must expect the desperate as well as the criminal and the agent-provocateur as a regular occurrence.

Since its reactionary stance is so obvious and well-known the Dirty Digger Press (Fox News) actually puts OWP in the clear - because it can only TRY to put the blame on OWP.

  • PS Rupert Murdoch is called the "Dirty Digger" in Britain and Australia because a "Digger" is the name given to Australian troops in WW1. (The 'Dirty' in his case refers to his 'lowbrow press' page 3 girls which funded his 'highbrow' newspapers in their early days in Britain and Australia).

Here's a description of what happened on the subway in Brooklyn:

Some witnesses claim Beauchamp was drunk and kept hassling the victim until a fight broke out.

Fox News, not surprisingly, has posted this as:

"Occupy Wall Street Guy Wanted for Murder"

"Police identified Beauchamp as a suspect through a previous arrest in connection with an Occupy Wall Street protest on Oct. 8, 2011, according to police sources. Beauchamp, who is homeless, also has a previous arrest in Connecticut, the sources told NBC New York. "

This must mean that I am a murderer and so is everyone else! Oh no!!!!!!! They got us..........

What a joke! Fox News also blames hooded sweatshirts for racist murder. This is just a pathetic attempt at slander with no regard for proper journalism.

Are any of you going to say 'hispanic shooter'? That doesn't fit your agenda-you can buy a t-shirt that says 'pussy ass cracker' on it with a pic of the hispanic shooter-or you can claim the bounty from the black panthers to bring him in dead or alive-no justice no peace

Well ya'll always believe everything Huffpo spews so why do you now question it's veracity? It doesn't fit your narrative?

Do you think that they may have also linked the guy to the human race? What does this mean for every living human being? Be afraid society be very afraid you could be living near a human too or shudder "be" a human.

OMG
