I've found a few weapon's caches in my life.  Some were AK47s, some were RPGs, but in my brief but too long military career, I never found a cache of kitchen knives or {{shudder}} cardboard tubes.

Officials from the NYPD would only confirm that one knife was found buried in a planter on Tuesday.
FOX

FOX quoted Deputy Mayor Cas Halloway who said, “Makeshift  items that can be used as weapons, such as cardboard tubes with metal pipes inside, had been observed among the occupiers’ possessions.”  

Quite a cache, eh?

Halloway went on to say,"“It was our understanding that the protester may have had a significant number of items that could be potentially used as weapons.”

Cardboard tubes, damn.  Those are as bad as aluminum tubes in the wrong hands.  They are so easily converted into bazookas by MyGyver. (edit: and Captain Kirk -see below)

The "large kitchen knife" and other knives that were not described were found by gardeners in flower beds.  OMG, think of the flowers.

I have nothing to add below the thing that looks like two squirrels doing it in a sack.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
