This lowlife was busted with enough explosives that police evacuated buildings in the neighborhood. But if we’re to believe the creep he’s just some innocent, non-political naif who was just playing around. The sad thing is most of the media, if they even bother to report that one of their darling Occupiers is a terrorist, will probably rally around him.
He says he’s a “sportsman” — not a terrorist.
Aaron Greene, who was arrested with his pregnant Dalton School- grad girlfriend after cops found explosive powder, shotguns, ammo and a “Terrorist Encyclopedia” in their Greenwich Village apartment, yesterday told The Post that the bombmaking material was for an “experiment” — not a terror plot.
“It was a very small amount of experimental fireworks,” Greene, 31, said at Rikers Island, where he has been held without bail after police discovered seven grams of explosive powder HMTD in the couple’s West Ninth Street pad Saturday.
“I was going to take it out in the country and try it out — just an experiment,” said Greene.
“I’m not involved in any political causes,” said Greene. “I’m a good person, despite all that’s been said . . . I had no intention of doing damage or hurting anyone.”
Sure, that’s believable.
But the son of prominent architectural restorer Jeff Greene was previously sentenced to a year in prison for stabbing a Lower East Side bouncer in 2005. Last year, he was sentenced to five months in jail after he and girlfriend Morgan Gliedman, 27, were spotted in a car with heroin inside, and a Ruger Mini-14 assault rifle in the trunk.
So how is it in Mike Bloomberg’s New York that a guy with a record who’s busted with heroin and a so-called “assault rifle” only get five months in jail? Could it be he has some connections?
Meanwhile, ABC News, which rushed to call Aurora shooter James Holmes a Tea Party member, curiously made no mention of this guy’s association with the OWS movement. Funny how that works, huh?
