Danny Glover ditches Occupy

Via the Washington Examiner:

According to several activists at an Occupy protest at the Justice Department Tuesday, Danny Glover really blew it. The actor didn’t show for the event, despite receiving top billing in advertising materials.

“I feel sorry for Danny Glover,” one demonstrator told Yeas & Nays. “He missed his chance to make a statement.” Glover was supposed to march around the FBI building and block traffic on Pennsylvania Ave., provoking arrest in support of jailed activist Mumia Abu-Jamal. “He made a commitment,” another protester said.

The actor apparently called in to the protest to say he couldn’t make it, but some demonstrators didn’t believe it was really Danny Glover on the call.

About 30 other people were estimated to have been arrested demonstrating near the White House.  They protested next to the White House fence, with several signs and chants regarding Mumia Abu Jamal. They also had a “No Government” sign with an anarchy symbol on it.

Mumia Abu Jamal was convicted of killing police officer Daniel Faulkner in 1981.  According to evidence submitted at trial, Jamal shot the officer in the back and then walked up to him and shot him in the head.

    That’s right, Obama’s Occupiers need to get a convicted murderer out of jail. After all, all he did was kill a cop….and we all know that they’re not human. Plus did I mention that the murderer was black? All the more reason to set him free.

    Eric Holder will be soooo proud….
