Posted on 10/16/2011 7:34:29 PM PDT by Just4Him
A Breitbart.tv investigation has uncovered that the man whose epic meltdown video at the "Occupy Wall Street" protests went viral is really Edward T. Hall III. Mr. Hall is a Columbia graduate student who has a trust fund set up by his grandfather. He recently made headlines for trying to board a flight at JFK airport by hopping the ticket counter and diving onto the baggage carousel. He was charged with trespassing and is free on "conditional release."

Ah, so this is who Obama and Pelosi are siding with in their stand against free markets.
Edward Hall III, a behavioral economics researcher at the University, was on his way to San Francisco on United when he realized he forgot his photo ID. Fittingly, a TSA official refused to let him pass through security without an ID, so Hall took matters into his own hands when he reportedly asked the official, “Can you put me in a suitcase and send me down the baggage belt?”
When the agent refused, Hall jumped onto the baggage belt in an apparent effort to be slid through to the plane via baggage security. Hall was arrested roughly 20 minutes later close to the tarmac saying to cops, “I just wanted to make my flight.”
Slap a bag tag on him and run him into the baggage compartment, nature will take care of the rest.
1. He wants everybody to live like 18th century monks.
2. He wants everbody to organize on Facebook.
3. He wants all infomation to be free.
Sounds like a danger to himself or others.
It means he isnt planning to work for a living.
Typical liberal megalomania.
In a sense, we all try to “change” people, but he is not talking about reasoned discourse appealing to rational interest, at least, that is how it appears to me. His assumptions are that things are bad because people are the way they are, and that he and others like him need to change people so that they will make the decisions that he approves of.
I couldn’t make heads nor tails of what he was studying from the description. I read it twice.
Like father, like son?!
I’d say if they drug tested him now he’s go back to jail....
It’s like someone opened a dictionary, found some words that sounded impressive and just copied them down. It’s like something some of my students would have done when asked to write a report about something they knew nothing about and were too lazy to actually do any work on. Just copy some big words and string them together.
I am actually starting to think the part about forgiveness of student loans make sense. If this is what passes for a college degree, who would want to repay what you paid for it? Only I think the Universities should be the ones to repay the loans. I think the Govt should be clawing the money back from THEM since they are clearly cheating the consumers as they are selling them an inferior (worthless) product.
I haven't got a clue but it does sound a lot like the rantings Jared Loughner had on his website. Must be a college kid thing.
Family named in obit of grand dad:
As my father would have said: "A legend in his own mind."
This is precisely the type of individual that will break down, cry and ask "What happened?" when he about to get shot during CWII by someone that finds him less than useful... I can just hear him now: "It's not supposed to be like this! Wait, you don't understand! It's supposed to work out for all of us! I know it is because, because..." BANG! BANG! BANG!

“Where is his family?”
They probably disowned him years ago.
Once he turned 18, the trust was probably turned over to him.
He took it and fled most likely.
You might be right. For example, what the hell does this mean?
I wish to develop socially based interventions to help moderate excessive discounting.
What....he's against coupons?
Only if it’s excessive....
