Chapel Hill Police Found Riot Literature Prior To Assault Weapon Occupy Raid

So, lots of liberals where whining (shock!) about the Chapel Hill PD entering a building with assault rifles drawn to bust anarchists linked to the Occupy morons who had illegally broken and entered the building. But, late Monday we learned

(Raleigh N&O) Town officials say they were justified in using a tactical squad of officers armed with semi-automatic weapons to remove squatters from a private downtown Chapel Hill building Sunday.

At a press conference Monday, Chapel Hill Police Chief Chris Blue and Chapel Hill Mayor Mark Kleinschmidt said the group was distributing riot literature and could have posed a threat to officers. The group included anarchists, some affiliated with Occupy Chapel Hill, but the group did not represent the Occupy Chapel Hill encampment downtown.

“We believe this was prudent, reasonable, and appropriate given what we knew,” Blue said.

Police learned that the building, a vacant car dealership, which once housed University Chrysler and Yates Motor Co., had been taken over by about 70 people Saturday night after an anarchist book fair downtown, Blue said. Several officers entered the building and were approached in a “threatening” manner by some in the group who were wearing hoods and masks and chanting obscenities, he said.

Isn’t funny how liberals, and, let’s face it, anarchists are just liberals who like wearing black and face masks, always seem to be the ones that have the potential for violence?

After the arrests Sunday, police discovered a bag of rocks in the building and some flammable materials, Blue said. No one who was arrested or detained was armed, he said.

I wonder why they had those?
