NY Post: The privileged daughter of a prominent city doctor, and her boyfriend — a Harvard grad and Occupy Wall Street activist — have been busted for allegedly having a cache of weapons and a bombmaking explosive in their Greenwich Village apartment. 

Morgan Gliedman — who is nine-months pregnant — and her baby daddy, Aaron Greene, 31, also had instructions on making bombs, including a stack of papers with a cover sheet titled, “The Terrorist Encyclopedia,’’ sources told The Post yesterday. People who know Greene say his political views are “extreme,” the sources said. Morgan Gliedman, daughter of Realtor Susyn Schops Gliedman and prominent doctor Paul Gliedman, was busted at this building with her OWS boyfriend. Cops found the stash in the couple’s West Ninth Street home Saturday when they went there to look for Gliedman, 27, who was wanted for alleged credit-card theft. 

A detective discovered a plastic container with seven grams of a white chemical powder called HMTD, which is so powerful, cops evacuated several nearby buildings. Police also found a flare launcher, which is a commercial replica of a grenade launcher; a modified 12 gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun; ammo; and nine high-capacity rifle magazines, the sources said. Cops also allegedly uncovered papers about creating homemade booby traps, improvised submachine guns, and various handwritten notebooks containing chemical formulas. The couple’s arrest Saturday was a sharp turn from their privileged backgrounds. 

Gliedman, who grew up on Park Avenue, graduated from Dalton in 2002. Her dad, Dr. Paul Gliedman, is director of radiation oncology at Beth Israel Hospital, Brooklyn Division. Paul Gliedman — who was included in New York magazine’s list of top doctors in 2011 — received his medical degree from Columbia University. Morgan’s mother, Susyn Schops Gliedman, is a realtor with Prudential Douglas Elliman. Greene attended Harvard as an undergraduate and did his graduate work at the university’s Kennedy School of Government. He has five prior run-ins with the police, with the charges including, assault, and weapons possession, sources said.

Hmmm.  I wonder if this couple used all of these weapons for deer hunting or target shooting?

Or is it possible they were designed specifically for killing people?

IDK. Im not on either side of the fence on this.  But would like to say that I don't believe everything I read.  Im not saying they are innocent, but im not saying I believe beyond the shadow of a doubt that they are in fact guilty.  With the way things are going now, and how desperate both sides seem to be now days, anything is possible.

 Ties to OWS? There must be some mistake.

Imagine if they were Tea Party members- this would splashed all over the headline news! Occupiers- you know those endorsed by Nancy Pelosi  ...well, all we hear is *crickets* from the media...........

Are not explosives already regulated? When was the last time you went down the dynamite and plastic explosives aisle in Walmart?

Actually, many, if not most explosives, are used in mining and demolition, not to kill people, though they can have that application. Killing is not their main function though, as a firearm.
