Occupy Portland Alchemists Responsible for Molotov Cocktail?

Occupy Portland violence escalates with the addition of Molotov Cocktails thrown at the World Trade Center building. 
They're yawning over at City Hall, where Mayor Sam Adams has told Occupiers to DO something about violence, drugging and thuggery. Uh, Mayor, THAT'S YOUR JOB. Somebody tell Sam. He's apparently so incompetent he can't figure it out. Obviously he'll have to be told by someone OUTSIDE City Hall because they're as bad as he is. Benefit of the doubt for these Peter-Principled so called "leaders" is over.

Tonight, Tuesday, November 8, 2011 at 9:10 p.m. Portland Police officers assigned to Central Precinct responded to a call of a Molotov Cocktail being set off at the World Trade Center, 121 Southwest Salmon. 

Arson investigators have been called to the scene and as it is an active and ongoing investigation no additional details are available at this time.

On Monday October 31, 2011 Portland Police received unconfirmed information that a person or people within the Occupy Portland encampments at Chapman and Lownsdale Square Parks may be constructing or have constructed Molotov Cocktails.

Generally, a Molotov cocktail is a glass bottle filled with a flammable liquid such as gasoline, with a rag or cloth sticking out of the bottle as a wick. Once the wick is ignited, the person holding the Molotov cocktail throws it, breaking the glass and spreading the ignited fluid.

While it's important to note that this information about Molotov Cocktails being kept in Occupy Portland is unconfirmed, Portland Police Bureau investigators are working to learn more about this information and are asking for the public's help.

The storage and/or construction of Molotov cocktails represents a significant public safety threat of injury.

Anyone with information about Molotov Cocktails being stored or constructed within Occupy Portland encampments at Chapman and Lownsdale Square Parks is urged to immediately report this information to the Portland Police Bureau Detective Joe Luiz at 503-823-3408 or email and/or contact: 

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to an arrest in this case, or any unsolved felony, and you can remain anonymous. Call Crime Stoppers at 503-823-HELP (4357), leave a tip online at, or text
CRIMES (274637) and in the subject line put 823HELP, followed by your tip.
