NEW YORK (Reuters) - Three new envelopes containing suspicious white powder were sent to New York City banks and news organizations on Tuesday, along with notes suggesting the sender sympathizes with the Occupy Wall Street's Day of May 1 protests, police said.
A total of ten letter-sized envelopes were sent over the last two days, and at least some contained an identical note saying "This is a reminder that you are not in control" and "Happy May Day," police spokesman Paul Browne said.
In all ten cases, the substance turned out to be non toxic and in several cases the powder was identified as corn starch, Browne said.
The letters appeared intended to coordinate with a planned day of May 1 protests organized by the Occupy Wall Street movement and labor groups across the country.

Peaceful 99%er’s, one and all!
Oh wait we got it open. Thanks!
Just another day for NYPD. ;-]
Whether or not the substance was harmful or harmless is incidental. This is still an act of terror, which such goal is to create a climate of fear. The people that do this are actual terrorists.
Let’s see, bomb threats, white powder, and bringing weapons to protests..hey media just like the tea party right/sarc
IT IS an act of terror. I was disgusted at how this was reported on NBC this a.m.......”but the powder was harmless”. HARMLESS?????
Yeah, ya got the yout’s in black , the anarchists wreaking havoc in SF, a subelement of OWS, hiding behind their veil of idiocy, where’s chuck norris and steven seagal when ya need them..? It’s gonna be a long hot summer for the men in blue..
The sad part is all the wasted resources and dough chasing these idiots off.. and the poor slubs that own and run the businesses that get smashed up and the expense of cleaning it all up.

This is what hapens when you don’t nip it in the bud.

I’ve got a box of jelly doughnuts to bet that the Marxist midget Mayor Bloomberg is hiding in a bunker at his rat house, surrounded by armed guards.
Hey, you occupy folks! Need any explosives? I know five guys in Cleveland that won’t be needing the stuff they got.
