Anti Occupy Portland Sends a Message to Mayor Sam Adams

I received a message tonight from the folks behind “Anti Occupy Portland” who have brought you the videos on finding needles in tents (corroborated by KATU), lice outbreaks (corroborated by KOIN) and the 4/20 Tent (corroborated by Occupy Portland). Here’s the message I received in my email box tonight:

Full Name: AntiOccupyPortland

City: Portland

Comments: Ma’am,
Thank you for having us on your show, it was a pleasure to speak with you and your staff.  We know you have a certain amount of time for your segments, but we were hoping you could give Mayor Sam Adams a message from us: 

Mayor Sam Adams, how long are you going to continue to have Portland Police hands tied behind their backs just so you can look “TOLERANT” of the Occupy Portland.  They have escalated to using molotof cocktails on the WTC…  What are you waiting for them to throw those cocktails at innocent people or Portland’s fine Police Officers?!  This isn’t peaceful anymore.  This isn’t local anymore either, we have notified National News of this chaos allowed by you.  For the sake of the citizens and Police Officers of Portland vacate Occupy Portland immediately to prevent future violence from those animals.  They see you as punching bag, now it is your turn to finally punch back.  Thank you.

-AntiOccupyPortland and citizens of Portland

Well, that about covers it.

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.

MOLOTOV COCKTAIL
Posted: November 8th, 2011 10:39 PM

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 Joseph.Luiz@portlandoregon.gov 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 www.crimestoppersoforegon.com, or text CRIMES (274637) and in the subject line put 823HELP, followed by your tip.

Look for the Union Label in Woodland Mayor’s Race

And they did it through their union headquarters in San Francisco. Now why would the union spend a couple thousand dollars sending out Liar Flyers to residents of Woodland? Do you know who’s running for Mayor of Woodland? Answer: The spokesman for the Cowlitz County Sheriff’s Office who has been talking to the media about the thuggish antics of the Longview  Longshoreman’s Union, Grover Laseke.

The Longshoreman’s Union Headquarters sent flyers to thousands of Woodland residents. From the Longview Daily News:

“Since Saturday, thousands of Woodland voters have received a flyer from a San Francisco-based group called the Committee for Accountable Government urging them to vote against Laseke, the director of the county’s emergency management department. The flyer blasted Laseke for his support of a new police headquarters in Woodland and questioned whether he has time to serve as mayor.

Gee, no mention of him being a spokesman for the Cowlitz County Sheriff’s Office, the tip of the spear against the illegality and thuggery of the Longshoreman’s Union? 
I went to bed noting that Laseke had the lead and woke up this morning to find:

 CITY OF WOODLAND MAYOR Nonpartisan, Vote For 1
Grover Laseke 0 0.00% 11 44.00% 11 44.00%
John “JJ” Burke 0 0.00% 14 56.00% 14 56.00%

Interesting, no? Hey Occupiers, Longshore thugs and your friends: You claim corporations should not have the ability to spend money in campaigns. You go first.
