Note the part about “The subjects were questioned further about the explosives. Each of them said that they knew the “Ball” canning jar would explode and cause glass shrapnel to fly out and possibly cause injury to anyone close to it.”
From KMTR News:
A traffic stop of a speeding vehicle led to the arrest of three men, who claimed to be Occupy Portland demonstrators, and the seizure of incendiary devices, gas masks and fireworks.Traffic Safety Deputy Ryan Postlewait saw a gray Subaru Outback going southbound on Interstate 5 near milepost 245 at 8:40am. It was traveling at a high rate of speed. Using his radar, he verified the speed of the Subaru at 81mph. Postlewait initiated a traffic stop.The driver of the car was identified as William Maxwell Patterson, 21. The passengers in the car were identified as Emery Nicholas Luff, 21 and Zachary Salzwedel-Kemp, 20. All three were from Klamath Falls.During his initial contact with Patterson, Deputy Postlewait detected the odor of marijuana coming from the interior of the car. A search of the car yielded a baggie of marijuana and paraphernalia for smoking marijuana.
In addition to the marijuana, Postlewait found a quantity of firecrackers and two commercially manufactured mortars like those fired into the air during professional pyrotechnic displays. The mortars were contained in glass “Ball” canning jars. One was found on the floorboard at Luff’s feet; the other was in a jacket belonging to Luff. Also found in the car were two gas masks, some protective eye goggles, and safety helmet.
All three suspects said that they had spent the night at the Occupy Portland demonstration. They admitted that they brought the seized items to the demonstration in preparation for a confrontation with police when they expected to be forcibly removed from the park. They admitted being at the protest during the police confrontation and had left about an hour before Postelwait stopped them.
During the earlier Occupy Portland confrontation between police and protesters, a Portland Police Officer was injured when protesters began throwing fireworks at them. These subjects denied being involved in throwing the fireworks at the Officer.
The subjects were questioned further about the explosives. Each of them said that they knew the “Ball” canning jar would explode and cause glass shrapnel to fly out and possibly cause injury to anyone close to it.
Salzwedel-Kemp and Patterson described an incident that occurred when they were younger. They put a homemade “Piccolo Pete” explosive inside a beer bottle and detonated it. The resulting explosion caused a shard of glass to fly into Salswedel; lacerating his leg so badly that he required stitches to close the wound.
All three were arrested and booked at the Marion County Jail:
Patterson is charged with Unlawful Possession of Fireworks and Possession of a controlled substance (less than 1 oz of marijuana). Patterson was cited & released from the jail with a December 12th court date. (photo attached)
Luff was charged with Unlawful Possession of Destructive Device, Unlawful Manufacture of Destructive Device and Unlawful Possession of Fireworks. Luff remains in jail with a court date of November 14th at 3:00pm. (photo attached)
Salzwedel-Kemp was charged with Unlawful Possession of Fireworks and Possession of a controlled substance (less than 1 oz of marijuana). Salzwedel-Kemp was cited & released from the jail with a December 12th court date. (photo attached)
The Portland Police Bureau was advised of the discovery and arrest. Officers working the demonstration were warned that other demonstrators might have devices similar to those seized from Luff, Patterson and Salzwedel-Kemp.
These demon-possessed lying Democrat cockroaches actually called the Tea Party movement “terrorists.” Without so much as a single shred of fact to back up the charge. Now we’ve got an out-of-control disease spreading riot going on all over the country – with thousands and thousands of arrests for disorderly conduct – and actual documented TERRORISM.
What was it that Nancy Pelosi said about these terrorists? Oh, yeah, that’s right: “God bless them“:
This is God damn America. And God damn America is going down HARD unless it throws out these liberal vermin while there is still an America left to throw them out of.
The left has ALWAYS been the source of violence. Fascism was always a leftwing enterprise, such that “NAZI” stood for “National SOCIALIST German WORKERS Party.” The left has ALWAYS used “workers” to foment chaos and violence. And the Nazis are marching arm and arm with their liberal friends now.
And these liberal Nazi thugs are acting exactly like I TOLD you they would act:
Democrats are evil. And the once great United States has become God damn America under them.
It is no coincidence that just looking at an America flag tends to make one a Republican and NOT a Democrat. It is no coincidence that just going to a 4th of July event tends to make one become a Republican and NOT a Democrat. Because the Democrat Party has become the Party of treason.
[Update, 11/16/11]: Did I say “terrorist”?
The 21-year-old man alleged to have fired a semi-automatic rifle at the White House is believed to have spent time at Occupy Wall Street encampments.
Can you even imagine the uproar if a man who had been at Tea Party events took a shot at the Obama White House? You would have had reporting about “Tea Party violence” and “Tea Party racism” for weeks. And Politico would have run 138 stories about THAT along with their rabid attack against Herman Cain.
Glenn Beck predicted it. And Glenn Beck was right. The violence he saw overtaking Europe and then the Middle East was coming here, he accurately warned. And when it came, it would be liberals who would be at the heart of it – just as the left has ALWAYS been at the heart of political violence. And for the record, Beck stated that when Obama truly became the target of assassination, it would likewise come from the LEFT. And note that I post that from a liberal who is shocked and outraged by the prediction that turns out to have been correct.
He quotes Beck in the following manner:
We also learned that when progressives lose, “all bets are off. They will cheat, they will lie, they will steal — and they have in the past blown things up if it helps them win.”
And then he directly quotes Beck:
Beck: I believe it could get ugly — so ugly, not only do I think the Republic is in danger, I think that we need to pay real attention — I think this president could be in real danger as well — something I have said for awhile. [....]
The most dangerous time in any regime, especially a radicalized regime, is when it is in collapse.
Watch the uber-Left. Pray that Obama moves to the center. If he does, pray that the Secret Service care for that man. That that man is never left alone. He has invited 9-11 Truthers into the White House and into his administration! If they believe that he’s ‘just another one of these guys,’ he is in danger.
The left has always been violent. The left was violent in France in 1789. And of course continued to be violent until the violence got so out of control it consumed itself and invited in a dictator. The left was violent in Russia in 1917. And of course that violence led to over forty million murders of Russia’s own people even during peacetime. The left was violent in Germany in the 1930s. And of course that violence consumed not only Germany but all of Europe in the greatest bloodbath of all human history. The left was violent in China in the 1950s. And Mao’s progressive Great Leap Forward murdered 45 million of his own people in just four years. And of course the left has been violent in Cuba, in North Korea, in Cambodia and everywhere else it has ever been.
Including America from the very start, when DEMOCRATS pursued a vicious Civil War so they could keep their slaves, and then created the Ku Klux Klan as a terrorist wing of the Democrat Party to attack blacks and Republicans. And that history of violence continued into the 20th century, when we saw their terrorism again and again – first in the labor unions and then in the 1960s radicals (think Obama’s terrorist pal William Ayers, for example).
And now – to quote Reagan – “here they go again.”
Update, just a little bit later on 11/16] Yep, I definitely said “terrorist.” And how LIBERALS ARE TERRORISTS.
Now we’ve got this liberal calling for outright violence and death:
“Ain’t no more talking, They got guns we got bodies. They got bricks we got rocks. Let’s see what they got.
[Young man in the background] They got missiles, we got bombs.
I want them…I want them to make that decision so they can see…in a few days you going to see what a molotov cocktail can do to Macy’s.”
Just remember how the left and their mainstream media propagandists came after the “violent” Tea Parties without a shred of fact or evidence. And then consider the avalanche of violence that we have seen coming from the left.
