An Occupy DC protestor, 21-year-old Oscar Ramiro Ortega of Idaho, is being sought by DC Police after a shooting at 16th Street and Constitution Avenue Bullets, which are believed to have come from this shooting, were found lodged in the exterior of the White House. One bullet was found in bullet-proof glass and one in the outside wall of the White House.
Police say that Ramiro has a “fixation” with the White and poses a potential threat after the man’s car was discovered. While they did not describe all the contents of the car, beyond a rifle and ammunition, they must have found enough paraphelia to indicate the shooter’s state of mind.
The media are depicting the Occupy DC protestor as “mentaly ill”, although beyond the fact that he allegedly shot at the White House, was found in a local abandoned house, and was seen for days participating in the Occupy DC protest, not much is known of him.
Media seeking to distance the violent man from the Occupy DC protest have stated that “Ortega may have spent time blending in with Occupy D.C. Protester.”
This story is as much about how an Occupy DC Protestor may have been firing potshots at the White House as it is about th ongoing media cover-up of the true nature of these protestors, which have been heavily laced with deranged characters, the likes of which would hve received short shrift in the Tea Party.
