Occupy Portland Live Stream

Posted on 11/13/2011 12:13:09 AM PST by dixiechick2000

It's said that there are several thousand people. That's from the folks on the webcam.

There are a lot of people there, but I don't know how many are looky-loos.

It sounds like the reporter is trying to incite the police to force the crowd to disperse.

Anything to get a good camera shot - even if it means inciting a riot to do so!

The protesters clearly want a fight, hope the cops are smarter than that.

Tear gas is less effective in the rain. But it’s also easier to control. I think it could be properly used to herd the crowd out of the park.

Portland isn't known for rioting. Its usually pretty safe down there so long as you stay out of the hip-hop district. Though lately with the Occupy idiots, the local criminals have taken advantage and its less safe today than it was last year.

Besides, the two parks the Occupy clowns are in are practically right on top of the downtown Police Station. Anyone who gets out of hand won't have to be hauled far.

I won't go down there until they are cleared out.

But they will be cleared out sometime in the next couple of days -- at the leisure of the Portland Police.

The local surplus stores were cleared out of gas masks -- the police laughed and said they wouldn't be needed.

If anyone starts something, it will be the protesters, not the Portland Police, which is as it should be.

They have backup from the surrounding cities and counties. Its going to be a very boring evening. I'm having a good chuckle at this "OMG! Deadline passed!" stuff. It was never intended to be one.

Hats off to the police; they created a plan that took all the so-called "tension" off. If you watch the livestreams or broadcasts, the cops look bored out of their minds.

They asked one of the Occupy "leaders" if she was willing to be arrested, and she said, "No, I have to go to work tomorrow."

Too funny!

Some do. The ones who came in from Seattle are the same anarchist-types who gave us the WTO Riots there. One clown threw a Molotov (now on $1M bail) but he came from Redding.

Your average Portland Protester is a "sit down and get baked" type. You usually don't have to worry too much about them getting violent so long as they don't run out of Doritos.

The cops have been advertising that to get arrested tonight, the protesters would have to REQUEST an arrest.

There won't be anything going on that the protesters themselves don't start and that isn't going to happen. These are real hippie-dippie types.

The local libs are making this an excuse to throw a street party. Nothing wrong with that given that its Portland - if anything, it will keep things calm.

Yep. I think the Portland Police did a good job in planning this out and excellent media communications.

Any problems will HAVE to be started by protesters. The police are being very hands-off.

They are starting to make a perimeter now. They just closed down Main St. between 3rd and 4th -- Main is the street you end up on coming west over the river across the Hawthorne Bridge so this could get interesting.

Sorry, but I'm here laughing my head off. The media created this "OMG! Deadline!" thing and its just funny watching this unfold with ... nothing!

Its even funnier if you know the reputation of the Portland Police. They got in trouble years ago for using the sleeper hold and printed up a bunch of T-shirts with a revolver on them saying "Don't Choke 'em. Smoke 'em!"

Go to bed. You're not going to see any fun.

The onlookers and spectators are starting to clear out. My bet is the Police move in sometime around 4-6am if they do anything of the sort.

One of the commissioners talked about a fence so its entirely possible that the plan is to barricade the stragglers in and starve them out.

You're not going to see a confrontation get going I don't think.

The obvious first effort is to simply get them up in the middle of the night. The soft-core supporters who've shown up have cleared out all the bars in town no doubt.

So the cops have managed to get the whole gang out on the streets ~ which are not as comfortable as the parks where you can lie down and sleep.

All the cops need to do is keep them awake and moving and this will be over.

Trying to drag people south and away from the bridge traffic.

Its going to be a long boring night unless one of the Seattle imports throws something interesting.

Oregon Law *does* allow them to knock heads if the knuckleheads won't get out of the roadway.

I'm impressed with the Portland Police. 20 years ago they'd have had half of these protesters in the ER already.

Interesting video feed ~ looks like the cops are tanned, rested and ready but the protestors are up in the middle of the night and are slowly discovering the streets are not as nice as the park.

if this were Venezuela their hero Chavez would have some snipers on the roof picking off people who raised sticks in the air.

If I'm right in how I read the Police plan, its sheer genius.

Cops are like a magnet to protesters. The protesters WANT to be arrested.

So what are the Police doing?

Inching them south - AWAY from the parks and NOT arresting them.

They have plenty of backup so a second unit from Washington County, Beaverton, or wherever could come in from the north and blockade the parks once enough people are led away from them.

If that's what they are doing, its working and is sheer genius. Lead them away from the parks then just close in behind.

I love how they’re saying the Pledge of Allegiance, as if they want to create a TV moment of evil cops arresting poor hippies. Are they saying “under God” too? :D

After reading around I agree with your take on it. The OWees were all psyched and braced for a clash at midnight, and now the fight is going out of them. The police probably know they aren’t very healthy, and a good adrenaline rush is enough to knock these wimps out.

Watching the activities on KATU here in the Portland area. The announcer seems to be calling out the mayor for not enforcing his own deadline. He says the overwhelming callers to his station are demanding that the police start busting heads, or at least start ending the occupation as promised.Photobucket

The protesters are soft. Not having sleep is going to wear them down pretty quickly. I think this is a good strategy. The police can rotate in fresh bodies anytime they want. The protesters can’t.

I think they should fence off the parks before clearing them out. It would be like an edgy urban zoo.

Watching the live feed spewed by the compliance lap media makes we want to vomit. One of the "reporters" called two men moving furniture to create an occupy barricade "gentlemen."

Apparently, police "peacefully engaging" with the protestors means putting your tail between your legs and slinking off.

Many areas of this country have completely lost the will to enforce the law, peace, and order. This will be capitalized on by the anarchists as law enforcement continues to capitulate to them.

I don't know who that is reporting but I don't think it's an official "media" person..I heard her describe herself as just out of college. Not that the media wouldn't work this way.

I was listening for a while....they're getting really tired and worn out. It sounds like they're confused about what's going on. The police are doing it right...they've got them up and moving, alert and on guard. Pretty soon the will to sleep and be comfortable is going to overthrow their will to "occupy".

KATU.com is the media outlet. Yes, they are media.

No, the police are NOT doing this right. The Occucommunists are declaring victory. What else can you call it? The protesters cowed police and got what they wanted. They will never leave now, not without much, much MORE violence than would have occurred had the deadline been enforced.

Portland is an epicenter of looney lib world view. They might as well disband the police department.
