Solid report from KATU [ht: Breitbart TV]. This is one of the few times I’ve heard any reporter in the US refer to Occupy as “anti-capitalist” despite overwhelming evidence that this is what they are:
Police said at about 10:20 p.m. Tuesday, a U.S. Bank branch near S.E. Cesar E. Chavez Boulevard and S.E. Main Street had windows broken out and the ATM was damaged. Police said rocks were found inside and outside the building.
About four hours later at around 2:15 a.m. Wednesday, police said they responded to reports of glass breaking at a Key Bank branch located at N.E. 38th and Broadway Street. Police said the suspects used rocks to break out the windows and damage an ATM machine there as well. Police searched the area and said they found no suspects.
A Starbucks coffee shop on N.E. Sandy Boulevard near the Key Bank branch also had windows broken by rocks, police said.
Portland police received an email taking responsibility for the destruction which vowed “wherever capital chooses for its bunker, we will be there to attack it in the night.”
No doubt Occupy Portland will claim this event wasn’t sanctioned or that the perpetrators weren’t part of their group. Uh-huh. We’ve heard it all before. These were occupiers. If the main group doesn’t agree with what was done, prove it. Turn over their names to police.
