Once hailed as one of the most livable U.S. cities, Portland, Oregon, is grappling with an uncertain future as it reaches a stunning benchmark: 100 consecutive nights of racial injustice protests marred by vandalism, chaos and the killing of a supporter of President Donald Trump.
Police in Portland has made multiple arrests last night.
A few hundred demonstrators met at the citys Kenton Park on Friday before making their way to the Portland Police Association building, where police warned protesters to stay off the streets and private property.
Yes, we have made multiple arrests tonight, a Portland police spokesman told Reuters news agency in an emailed statement after police declared the gathering was unlawful.
Officers will continue to make targeted arrests of those who fail to adhere to this order, police said earlier on Twitter.
One interesting moment came while the police were trying to clear the area around the building.
A police officer shot pepper balls at the backside of an Antifa black bloc rioter near the police union hall. The police recover a baton or stick from the ground a few moments later.
Video from the moment below:
Officials in suburban counties refused a call from Gov. Kate Brown, a Democrat, for their deputies to assist Portland police following last weekends violence.
The worst-case scenario is that theres another incident and it just touches off so much that the city just cant survive it very well, said Ron Louie, a former suburban Portland police chief, author of a crisis negotiation book, and current Portland State University professor.
And Trump has stepped up threats to send U.S. agents back to the city, like his administration did in July when agents brought in to stop attacks on a federal courthouse and other U.S. property only reinvigorated the protesters.
Thousands of demonstrators turned out nightly, with some hurling fireworks, rocks, ball bearings, and bottles at the agents. They responded with huge plumes of tear gas, rubber bullets, and flash-bang grenades that created chaotic, war zone-like scenes.
When I am sad or feeling down I watch this. It cheers me right up;
“Police in Portland has made multiple arrests last night.”
It won’t do any good because the Soros puppet DA won’t charge them.
Multiple? Theyre not playing around, anymore.
Good. Why bother going into Portland to arrest a thug when he'll be back home before the deputy will be.
The Portland police should go on strike. Although they really are the thin blue line. They have to hang in there until November 3rd.
The cops could cause serious brain damage to the rioters by targeting their backsides...
That is one of my all time favorites.
Antifa’s first mistake was using the parking lot of a donut shop for a staging/rallying area.
Never noticed before, i think he spilled his soda pop.
Probably not the first time hes had balls nailing his ass.
It wont do any good because the Soros puppet DA wont charge them.
DA neutralized by Trump deputizing Ore. State Police under US Marshals. So arrests are made under federal law, not the state law the DA abuses.
How has Governor Brown not stopped this?
IRRC, federal penalties do not have a provision for parole. If so, GREAT.
