Occupy protester threatened to kill two officer’s families

The Occupy Wall Streeter who once sobbed in court because she had to appear in the same dress twice also threatened to kill two cops’ families, court papers show.

Couture-crazed protester Cecily McMillan — who became a poster child for OWS indignation after socking a cop in the eye in 2012 — was arrested again in December 2013 during a subway scuffle.

She was busted after allegedly urging two turnstile jumpers not to cooperate with a pair of cops in the Union Square subway station — and then made death threats against the officers, according to the papers.

“You don’t know who I am! Wait until you figure it out! You probably don’t have kids or a wife, but if you do, I’ll kill them!” McMillan, 26, allegedly screeched to the officers.

After four hours in custody, McMillan hissed to officers, “Look at what I am wearing! It is a botanist dress,’’ the papers state.

“This is a cocktail dress to be worn only standing up maximum four hours! I had three to four people that helped me get into this dress. The NYPD, you must supply me with clothing!”

McMillan said her dress was so tight that “my chest hurts” and demanded an ambulance.

The ranting revolutionary also ordered the cops to give her a pair of sweat pants and a T-shirt.

“You are a male chauvinist pig!” she yelled at one cop.

McMillan had already been arrested and was awaiting trial for punching the officer in 2012. On Dec. 7, 2013, she allegedly played counselor to the two fare-beaters during their bust.

“You don’t have to talk to them,” she allegedly told the suspects. “Don’t pay any attention to them. They did not identify themselves. I know the law. I’m a lawyer. Don’t cooperate with them.”

McMillan, who, in fact, is not a lawyer, was then arrested herself and promptly sniffed to officers, “I have dealt with the police before. I’m not scared of your scare tactics.”

The New School grad was convicted in the 2012 incident and spent two months in jail. She was just released from Rikers Island.

She has pleaded not guilty to the subway obstruction-of-justice rap, which carries a possible jail sentence of one year, and will appear in court on that charge Sept. 15.

She turned down a no-jail plea deal offered by prosecutors that would have required her to take anger-management classes.

Another real news story that you could swear came from the Onion.....
Character still matters.  It always matters.

And now the left-wing version of poor Cecily's plight:
Quote
On July 2, Occupy Wall Street activist Cecily McMillan was driven to Queens, New York, and dropped off on the side of the road, with only a MetroCard, after serving nearly two months in Rikers jail. McMillan’s sentence for allegedly assaulting a police officer was the most severe served for any of the thousands of Occupy Wall Street protesters arrested over the course of the movement. She was detained in March 2012 as protesters tried to re-occupy Zuccotti Park, six months after the Occupy Wall Street movement began. McMillan says she felt someone grab her breast from behind, and swung out instinctively, striking her assailant, who turned out to be police officer Grantley Bovell. Nine of the 12 jurors who convicted McMillan of second-degree assault asked the judge for leniency, saying they did not think she should serve any time in jail. McMillan served 59 days, and has now become an advocate for the women she met behind bars, many of whom she says were denied adequate medical care. "Your body is no longer your own," she says of life behind bars.

From a Wikipedia page about here:

Her supporters argue that she was in fact defending herself from sexual assault by the officer she was convicted of assaulting; Mrs. McMillan alleges that a bruise on her breast, shown in photographs at trial, was inflicted by Officer Bovell. Prosecutors argued that Bovell did not cause the injury, and noted that McMillan did not report the alleged assault at either of two hospitals where she received treatment the night of the arrest.


A quick google search reveals what an attention whore she is. Perhaps I shouldn't have called her a trust fund baby. More like a red diaper baby (I must have been confused by the designer duds she wore to court):
Quote
... She emerged from the lower reaches of the ninety-nine per cent, growing up poor in Beaumont, at the far eastern edge of Texas. In Appleton, Wisconsin, where she graduated from Lawrence University, in 2011, she threw herself into the campaign to preserve public-sector collective bargaining from Governor Scott Walker’s efforts to do away with it. She is a passionate, animated organizer. But, unlike most of the more-or-less anarchists who steered the not-exactly-rudderless encampment, McMillan counts as a social democrat; her organizational attachment is to the Democratic Socialists of America, which follows Michael Harrington’s credo of being “the left wing of the possible.” She has worked in election campaigns, including one unsuccessful effort after Occupy Wall Street.

Accordingly, she disapproves of the “horizontality” that most of Occupy’s inner circle vehemently preferred. She rolls her eyes at the hand-twinkling and hands-down gestures that O.W.S. devised to substitute for applause and boos. She has organized with unions, and is writing a master’s thesis at the New School on social movements, in particular Bayard Rustin, the militant pacifist who was the chief organizer of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. McMillan heard of him from her step-grandfather, Harlon Joye, of Atlanta, an ally of Rustin’s from the civil-rights days and an early member of Students for a Democratic Society. ...

She should be charged with unauthorized practice of law as well, then.

Looks like dad came from money but had an impoverished lifestyle with the wife and kids in Texas. A profile of this noble Occupier in yet another left-wing rag describes Cecily's poor parents, but then ...

McMillan spent most of her summers with her paternal grandparents in Atlanta. They opened her to another world. She attended a Spanish-language camp. She went to blues and jazz festivals. She attended a theater summer camp called Seven Stages that focused on cultural and political perspectives. When she was a teenager she wrote collective theater pieces, including one in which she wore the American flag as a burka and sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” as a character dressed as Darth Vader walked onto the stage. “My father was horrified,” she said. “He walked out of the theater.”

As a 13-year-old she was in a play called “I Hate Anne Frank.” “It was about American sensationalism,” she said. “It asked how the entire experience of the Holocaust could be turned for many people into a girl’s positive narrative, a disgusting false optimism. It was not well received.”

Art, and especially theater, awakened her to the realities endured by others, from Muslims in the Middle East to the black underclass in the United States. ...

She's a hero to some, and not just on the left.

Yeah, lots of people don't trust the police. Some people revere anybody that stands up to them for any reason.
