That’s how you do it: you look for the weak one in the group, you make sure that he (it’s usually a he) understands just how much trouble he’s in, and then you start to squeeze him, psychologically. You squeeze, and you listen for the pop.
One of five men accused of attempting to blow up the Ohio 82 bridge in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park pleaded guilty Wednesday and agreed to cooperate in the prosecution of his four former co-defendants.
Anthony Hayne, 35, of Cleveland, entered the plea at a hearing in U.S. District Court, where lawyers for the other four suspects indicated they would argue at trial that the foiled bomb plot was a case of entrapment by the FBI and a paid informant.
Mind you: Occupy Wall Street was pretty much a collection of the weak to start with, so this may have been a race to the bottom anyway.
PS: Wonder what else Anthony Hayne knows about? Because I’m sure that he’d love to reduce that prison time further…
