Man's Lawyers Criticize Police in Village Bomb Case

Lawyers for a man accused of keeping bomb-making materials in his Greenwich Village apartment say authorities have unfairly portrayed their client.

Attorneys Charles Clayman and Isabelle Kirshner said in a statement Friday that the case was tragic.

Aaron Greene and his wife were arrested last month after a police search of their home turned up weapons, chemicals used to make explosives and papers titled "The Terrorist Encyclopedia'' and "Deadly Homemade Weapons.'' The lawyers blame drug addiction for the trouble.
 
They say they were "surprised and dismayed" police have leaked "innuendos, half-truths and slurs." They say police reports that Greene signed a letter with a Nazi SS Lightning bolt were offensive since Greene comes from a family devastated by the Holocaust.
