Police raid Portland homes taken over by anarchists

PORTLAND — Police have raided several Northeast Portland homes taken over by anarchists who claimed they were part of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Police were tipped off about the situation Sunday. Responding officers found that the squatters had changed the locks on the homes.

Inside they found anarchist literature, drugs and weapons, including machetes.

“There’s the body armor in there, the bucket of projectiles: broken up concrete, rocks,” Portland Police Sgt. Jeff McDaniel told KGW. “There was some body-armor-type stuff for someone who might want to fight the police for one of the protests.”

But he explained that most of the protesters were non-violent.

“The sad thing is they’re trying to associate themselves with the Occupy movement, which has basically been peaceful,” he said. “But this clearly shows that [the anarchists] truly want to come down there and cause problems.”

The owners of the homes asked that the addresses not be released.

Police detained one man found inside a home. He said he had lived there for a week. He was given a warning for trespassing.

(Wow that’s amazing evidence. What were trying to do with all that stuff? Rollerblade down the street smoking indo, with a pantry full of Tabasco sauce and instant coffee? Who knew that machetes, body pads and rocks were illegal. Well, you know how the game works. These were the most interesting photos but there’s a few more here that are less interesting even.)

    The amount of spin on these stories is incredible, even for these news stations and the PPB. “Houses” is one house. There is, to my knowledge, no connection between this house and any Occupy movement. Rocks to “throw at cops” or to practice flint knapping? Again, incredible.

    know what i think ? i think those anarchist zines are evidence that they must be anarchists! send them to jail for reading zines by anarchists! oh wait, that means if you have a copy of anything by Derrick Jensen, Tolstoy, Ursula K Leguinn, anything else, Adbusters etc., you must be an anarchist. and if you have a bucket of rocks, skate pads?, a machete, or a poster of Godzilla on your wall, then you’re really screwed!

    The UK police already said to “turn in” anarchists to police. So McCarthy Era is back for the red and the black. Thought crime 1984 = 2012 yo.
