Chilling details have surfaced about the recent Occupy Wall Street movement. Plans were apparently formulated to identify the leaders of the movement and execute them with precise shots using sniper rifles.

A new FBI memo was obtained last month through a Freedom of Information Act request, which reveals that the FBI knew of these planned attacks on Occupy Wall Street protestors.

After the document surfaced, the FBI did acknowledge this: “An identified [redacted] had received intelligence that indicated the protesters in New York and Seattle planned similar protests in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and Austin, Texas.

[Redacted] planned to gather intelligence against the leaders of the protest groups and obtain photographs then formulate a plan to kill the leadership via suppressed sniper rifles.”

These documents show that the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security are treating protests against the corporate and banking structure of America as potential criminal and terrorist activity,” PFCJF Executive Director Mara Verheyden-Hilliard says.

This is kind of terrifying. People standing for what they believe in are now being targeted almost as terrorists? The members of the movement had no violent intentions at all, yet were seen as threats. The world is crazy.
