Anyone else fail to recall Tea Partiers throwing a Molotov cocktail?

PORTLAND — Portland police said an improvised incendiary device was set off outside the World Trade Center at 121 SW Salmon and they’re investigating a possible link to the Occupy Portland camp.

Lt. Robert King said a Molotov cocktail caused minor damage Tuesday night on an external stairwell. The building is located one block east of the two parks where Occupy Portland demonstrators have been camped since Oct. 6.

King said “there’s preliminary information available that indicates a connection” to Occupy Portland.

He said that police received unconfirmed reports on Oct. 31 that the gasoline filled bottles with a cloth wick were being made within the Occupy Portland encampments at Lownsdale and Chapman Square parks.
