The story of Nature Dave has caught the attention of Rolling Stone.
On Aug. 6, Easton resident and Occupy Easton member Dave Gorczynski was arrested after he allegedly brought two signs -- one of which bore the slogan "You're being robbed" -- into two city banks. Attempted robbery charges against him were dropped, but he still faces criminal mischief and terroristic threat charges.
Gorczynski and his attorney argue that the signs were a form of protest. The intended message isn't "I'm robbing this bank," but "this bank is robbing you."
District Attorney John Morganelli has said bank workers and customers had no way of knowing that, and had every reason to be afraid.
The arrest became national news and found its way into the Aug. 30 edition of Rolling Stone magazine.
In each issue, Rolling Stone offers a political/cultural news round-up called the Threat Assessment, putting things in the "with us" and "against us," categories.
Gorczynski's arrest fell into the "against us" end of the scale.
It's sandwiched between the ozone hole giving Australian fish skin cancer, and a man who's accused of beating up his girlfriend because she friended Mitt Romney on Facebook and he thought he was her secret lover.
