According to the Portland Police Molotov Cocktails and rifle ammunition were found near the Portland protests.
A day after a top Democratic congressman dismissed violent protests in Portland as “a myth,” police in the Oregon city said they found a cache of loaded rifle magazines and prepared Molotov cocktails.
The cache follows on reports of protesters using everything from high-intensity lasers to commercial-grade mortar-launched fireworks against local and federal police who are now engaged in nightly clashes with protesters.
“Tonight Portland Police were near Lownsdale Square Park. A person pointed out a bag to them. Inside the bag police found loaded rifle magazines and Molotov cocktails,” Portland police said on Twitter.
Police also said they faced mortar-launched fireworks and someone ignited a fire inside the protective fence around the federal courthouse that’s become Ground Zero for protests. The crowd then used shields and umbrellas to try to provide cover for a protester who tried to cut through the fence.
More evidence of how peaceful these protests are….
I’m sure they needed Molotov cocktails and rifle ammunition to simply peacefully protest…
