NYPD Nabs Zuccotti Park Terrorist

That charming fellow we noted this morning who said he’d be burning New York City to the ground has been picked up by the police. His comrades will probably view him as a political prisoner.

A protester was arrested in Zuccotti Park Wednesday after he threatened to set the city on fire — and his rant went viral on YouTube, police said.

Nkrumah Tinsley, 29, was busted after cops saw his tirade at Zuccotti online, where he was recorded on video claiming he would torch the city during Thursday’s mass protest.

“On the 17th [of Nov.\], we’re going to burn New York City to the f—ing ground,” an angry Tinsley told a crowd of demonstrators in the video posted on Tuesday.

“In a few days, you’re going to see what a Molotov coctail can do to Macy’s.”

Tinsley, of Harlem, was charged with making terroristic threats.

In October, Tinsley was arrested on Barkley St. for punching a cop in the face and kicking him on the ground during a protest. He was later released without bail.

Um, how do you get no bail for punching and kicking a cop?

    He probably thought that obambi had his back. Instead he’ll be looking up at the exhaust system of the bus.
