The Cleveland 4 are Occupy activists accused of terrorism related charges stemming from an undercover FBI setup. I have read many articles about this case and it is very disturbing. Connor, Doug and Brandon have pled guilty to all charges. The judge applied a “terrorist enhancement” to each of them which elongated their sentences as well as subjected them to harsher prison conditions. Doug is serving 11.5 years, Brandon 9 years, 9 months and Connor 8 years, 1 month. Josh took his case to trial after being offered a 3 year plea deal. The jury found his guilty and he has been sentenced to 10 years.
They all continue to fight against the government’s attempt to brand them as terrorists and to expose the techniques of entrapment employed by the FBI and their informant. These are not terrorists but rather, young activists whose only crime was joining a group of like minded people within the Occupy movement in order to have to have their voices heard. Please write to them.
