Meet Jeffrey Scott.
The 32-year-old Occupy Pensacola protester was arrested yesterday on felony burglary and larceny charges for allegedly robbing a neighbors home of furniture that he used at the protest groups encampment outside City Hall.
Scott was nabbed shortly after victim Ned English called police to report the theft of a couch, a recliner, four wicker chairs, and four couch cushions from his home, according to an Escambia County Sheriffs Office report.
When questioned by a deputy, Scott stated, Yes, I took the furniture. I was going to give it back, but havent had a chance to. Scott, investigators noted, admitted entering Englishs home through a rear window, taking the furniture, and using some of the purloined items at the Occupy Pensacola Camp located at City Hall.
Scott, pictured in the above mug shot, is being held in lieu of $20,000 bond in the county jail. Arrest records list the Virginia native's occupation as "nutritional aid."

It's just the Man, man. He's keepin' us down, man.
Have these ows people any particular ideas? I’m seeing a lot of anarchy but no order. What do they expect to happen?
“This camp is my camp
and this camp is your camp
From the wicker chairs
to the four couch cushions
This camp was made for me by ye”...
(If my name was “Woody”, I’d be tempted to write a song)...
Do you have free you-know brownies and shizitz?
LOL. Scott vs English 1:1:)
As for an event itself it shows who are “occupy” people once again.
Seriously... he doesn’t even use his OWN furniture? He’s got to steal the neighbor’s? Who does that?
I saw one Occupy Protestor with a sign that said, “What’s yours is mine”. I guess this guy must’ve seen that same sign.
Congratulations. You just confessed to a felony. I don't know which is dumber. Committing it? Or confessing it and rationalizing it? You invaded this man's home, and took his stuff.
How was this dipshit able to make it to age 32?
Ha....so make him into soylent green
(Doesn't look too savoury from the pic)
I know another guy that borrows stuff for long LONG periods from his neighbor, Ned.
Maybe he takes orders at a greedy Mc Donald's.
Ichigo MaCleod · Pensacola, Florida What I want to know, is whatever happened to "Innocent until proven guilty"? The article even says he "allegedly" robbed the place. Not that he was convicted. Yet so many people are quick to judge him...All because of conflicting political views.
I guess the guy saying, "Yes, I took the furniture" is not enough for Itchy.
I am sure that this kind of action is consistent with the goals of the OWS crowd. They want to be given everything, or just take what they like.
It was a safe bet to steal a neighbor's couch, recliner, wicker chairs, and couch cushions just in case they were destroyed by the weather, unclean behavior, infested with fleas and other vermin, or removed and disposed of by the authorities. After all, the alleged perp had the good intentions of returning the goods. Good intentions count for Democrats; part of their play book.
Every day we read more about the heroes of the occupy movement, making America a better place for all, its all about sharing donchaknow.
Actually; it is these idiots that are the 1%...the rest of us are behaving ourselves.
Cool, I am willing to share bullets as long as he doesn’t complain on how he receives them.
I believe this is in your neck of the woods.
And “Occupy Pensacola”? Really!? Just damn.
Who would want the furniture back? I doubt it would be very clean.
Synthesis: This is my furniture.
Antithesis: This is my furniture.
Synthesis: This is our furniture.
See how marxism works?
Way across the top of FL from me. But it’s a very nice area, Pensacola.

He will probably get off.
Example: A neighbor of ours fired a contractor who was renovating her home, because he was stealing money. He then returned to her house the following night with a truck and loaded up everything moveable, including the kitchen sink (really, along with the counter) and even every lightbulb in the house.
In court, his lawyer argued that there was no evidence that the thief did not intend to return the pilfered items, and he was let off. None of the stolen items was ever returned.
This is the way the courts operate these days (at least here in NJ).
Ah, yes. The tried and true "I didn't steal it, I was just borrowing it" defense.
I have some lead in 40 grain containers. I will be more than happy to give him all he wants of it.
Does he smoke Tarryton? (sp?)
Ah, my mistake, for some reason I thought you were over there. Jax area?
Well that jogged my memory.
