Remember the anarchist/antifa gang that tried to blow up a Cleveland bridge last May? Their goal was to boost the Occupy movement. (Not sure how that was supposed to work, but as you can see from their pictures, these boys can’t be firing on all cylinders. Maybe Arthur Jensen could tweak Spearman’s hypothesis to account for the low IQ of these Occupy types.)
Anthony Hayne was brought into the court room wearing street clothes instead of the usual prison orange. Emotions were running high as what many of the supporters and loved ones feared the most unfolded before our eyes. Around 9:30 AM Anthony Hayne formally entered into a cooperating plea agreement with the government on the basis that he was found guilty on all three charges. The judge seemed hesitant about Hayne’s move, as it included a mandatory minimum sentence of roughly 16-20 years in prison (188-235 months served). The exact amount of time served would be dependent on the level of cooperation with the government. Formal sentencing will not occur until the trial is concluded.
As the Cleveland 5 support group, as friends and loved ones of all of them, we are shocked by his decision. Particularly by his decision to enter into a plea that would, by its nature, require the exchange of information that would implicate and/or potentially make worse the case of his other co-defendants. As this is and will remain a political case, we can no longer express support and advocacy on the behalf of Anthony.
Reckon Hayne will have to turn in his black hoodie?
