Occupy Portland Protester Arrested for Molotov Cocktail Attack on Portland World Trade Center

David J. Hodson was arrested today for throwing a Molotov cocktail at the World Trade Center in Portland.

Occupy Portland protester was arrested again today at the squatters camp. He was arrested on Sunday for setting fires at the camp.
Oregon Live reported:

A 29-year-old man was arrested this morning inside the Occupy Portland encampment, police said, on suspicion of throwing a Molotov cocktail onto a staircase at the World Trade Center last night.

David J. Hodson was booked into the Justice Center Jail on accusations of first degree arson, manufacturing a destructive device, possession of a destructive device and second-degree criminal mischief. His bail was set at $272,500.

Lt. Robert King, a spokesman for the Portland Police Bureau, said officers were given a “very good description” of the man who threw the incendiary device and located him inside the Occupy Portland camp.

King said Hodson was arrested on Sunday for starting several fires inside the camp.

No one was injured in the incident, which scorched a staircase between two escalators at the center, located at 121 Southwest Salmon Street.

Paul Corah, a Portland Fire Bureau spokesman, said Hodson was responsible for the incendiary device as well as separate act of vandalism to the Smart Park parking structure at 123 Southwest Jefferson Street.

    Wow. The gene pool could use some chlorine.

    Good grief–every one of these mug shots are right out of central casting for the sorriest sad sack degenerate low life losers imaginable. Yeah…99%…sure.

    These idiots remind me of the scum that are attracted to the white supremicist movement. That ilk fancies themselves as the better than the rest aryans, but they’re all miserable failures who embody everything BUT “aryan” attributes.

    These gutter trash protesters are cut from the same cloth. Simply the worst four coilers life has crapped out.

    Press release from Mayor’s office. “It’s not like he started a fire – fire”.

  • Libs Suck

    Well, it’s obvious that this man is a squirrel hunter. That right eye of his is always scanning the tree line, looking for squirrels – while the left eye is looking straight ahead, looking for a good place to roast the little buggers! ROFL

    Obviously that tat on his neck makes identification an easy thing, along with his ‘eagle’ eye. What a tool.

  • martha

    He reminds me of the kid in the “Dueling Banjos” scene in the Deliverance.

  • Highlander

    Yikes … I guess they aren’t kidding when they say it’s not safe to walk through the crowds at these protests. Pretty much every photo and video I’ve seen is full of greasy scum, but this guy is really scary looking…

  • Molon Labe

    He looks like the other 99% of the progressives at these riots.

    Obama approved and endorsed~! 4 more years of Hope and Change! NOTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!
    Hey Mr. President do you really think this occupy thing is working out for you? how many people have to die before you become a responsible leader and tell the idiots to go home or back to their garbage dumpsters, they call home! Isn’t our commander in chief aiding and abetting crime in every major city in the country? Like Joe Paterno, when will Obama lose his job for his endorsement of crimes against law abiding humanity? You do have freedoms to protest but you occutards have no right to commit crimes every day without someone paying a price. It’s time to start putting the “leaders” of this so called movement in jail. Hold people accountable! You can speak freely in this country however you can not commit crimes in an unpermitted protest that has gone on for weeks. Your message is becoming a bit ridiculous and if you think it’;s going to work, you’re in for a real shocker next November. Keep this up and Obama will not stand a chance.

    Seriously, has this guy ever been karyotyped?

    As Muslims have shown through their use of mentally challenged suicide bombers, the Left might have used this guy to throw their bomb.

  • ireducerr

    As I will agree that the act of this young man are disturbing and should be met with the appropriate punishment. I feel the the opinions in regards to his parents or there part in his actions are uncalled for. I happen to know this family well and his parents are both upstanding citizens in their community, and like any other parent raised their child to be an upstanding citizen. No parent is perfect in this life, but after a person is raised and out it is on their shoulders that their actions should fall.
