So you can threaten to toss Molotov cocktails through windows at Macy’s and to burn the city to the ground and you walk free after a week? Nothing like being a law and order tough guy there, Mayor Bloomberg.
A week ago he wanted to toss Molotov cocktails at Macy’s, but Tuesday he was back at it, mixing it up in Zuccotti Park.
The Daily News snapped photos of Occupy Wall Street nut case Nkrumah Tinsley, 29, prancing around after the movement coughed up $7,500 for his bail, his lawyer, Pierre Sussman said.
“It’s ridiculous that this guy is back on the street,” said City Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. (D-Queens), head of the public safety committee.
“For someone with a strong case against him and deep pockets behind him, bail should have been set higher. Now we’re all placed at risk.”
Tinsley was busted after a YouTube video of him claiming he would torch the city during a mass protest last Thursday went viral.
“On the 17th [of Nov.], we’re going to burn New York City to the f—ing ground,” he said during the rant. “In a few days, you’re going to see what a Molotov cocktail can do to Macy’s.”
A spokesman for Occupy Wall Street refused to admit they footed the bill to spring Tinsley, saying even they consider him a “loose cannon.”
“We won’t have anything to do with this guy,” said spokesman Ed Needham. “Certainly everything we do is centered around us being a peaceful and nonviolent movement.”
But after an appearance at Manhattan Criminal Court Tuesday morning — where prosecutors said they have not yet presented the case to a grand jury — Tinsley waltzed over to where a group of demonstrators were gathered at the park. He disappeared before the afternoon rain began to fall on the near-empty park the city councilman and other protesters .
Police said they had no interaction with Tinsley at the park, and could only arrest him if he broke the law again.
“If he wants to participate in Occupy Wall Street protests, it’s his right to do so,” said Sussman. “[But] he’s been advised — the authorities are looking for him. He needs to be very careful how he proceeds.”
Needham said there is no way to ban Tinsley from protests, but his destructive tactics will not be tolerated from the group.
“We completely condemn it,” he said.
