Because...freedom? This from Talking Points Memo:
Someone threw a Molotov cocktail through the window of Rep. Emanuel Cleaver's (D-MO) Kansas City, Mo. office early Thursday morning, police told KCTV.
Police responded to a security alarm around 3 a.m. and found that a window was smashed. On the ground below the window police said they found two broken bottles with paper towels in them that looked like Molotov cocktails, according to KCTV. The officers also smelled of lighter fluid.
The devices did not blow up and nobody was injured, police said.
Cleaver's chief of staff John Jones told KCTV that this was the second incident in the past six years when someone has thrown something at the Kansas City office.
This does have an old-school 1960s intimidation feel to it, doesn't it? It's just speculation, but Rep. Cleaver's did do a lot of work in Ferguson and Mike Brown's shooting death. One must wonder if that had something to do with this latest incident.
