Just Like the Tea Party… 3 #Occupy Portland Protesters Arrested With Homemade Grenades

Yup. They’re just like the tea party…

(Oregon Live)

Three Obama-endorsed Occupy Portland protesters were arrested today with homemade grenades in the car.
Via Verum Serum and Oregon Live:

Inside the car, the deputy also found a number of firecrackers and two commercially made mortars inside glass canning jars, designed to be fired into the area during professional pyrotechnic displays. One was found in the floorboard of the vehicle, and the other was allegedly in Luff’s jacket.

The deputy also found two gas masks, protective eye goggles and a safety helmet. All three men told the deputy that they had spent the night at the Occupy Portland demonstration, and they brought the mortars and safety equipment to the demonstration in preparation of the expected confrontation between police and protesters Sunday morning.

The three had been at the demonstration during the confrontation Sunday morning and had left about an hour before the vehicle was stopped. During that confrontation, a police officer was injured by a firework, but the three men denied being involved in the incident.
