Just Great: Police say 'Occupy Portland' protesters arming for a fight

In my own neck of the woods, no less....

QUOTE: Portland police warned on Friday that anti-Wall Street protesters in the city were fashioning makeshift weapons with wood and nails, in advance of a planned move by authorities to clear their two encampments over the weekend.

QUOTE #2: Details on possible plans for violence within the camps come from people inside the encampments who are concerned, Portland police Sergeant Pete Simpson said.  There are reports weapons are being made with wood and nails, that a hole is being dug in one of the parks and that pallets are being turned into shields, said police.

My concern about the 'Occupy' movement has always been the potential for it to turn violent.  It would be all the more dreadful if that started in my own backyard...
