Not one arrest made in Portland riots a week after ‘anarchists’ caused
$500G in damages: Police
Widespread vandalism in downtown Portland targeted 35 separate
Portland police have yet to make any arrests a week after a group of
around "100 anarchists" marched through the city’s downtown, damaging
local businesses, tagging buildings with "Kill Cops" graffiti and
lighting dumpsters on fire in the street – resulting in estimated
damages of at least $500,000.
The group shattered numerous store windows and smashed bank ATMs as
they marched through downtown Portland, lighting garbage cans and
dumpsters on fire in the street, according to police.
However, the actions of Portland police are being questioned after it
appeared officers did not directly intervene as the destruction
The group knocked over garbage cans, littering the street with waste,
on Oct. 12. (Portland Police Bureau )
A crew with local news station KOIN-TV reported seeing police
remaining inside their cruisers as the destruction continued.
Lt. Jake Jensen addressed the police response during a neighborhood
association meeting on Thursday, telling concerned residents that this
will be how police respond to destructive protests and riots going
forward due to the new HB 2928 legislation passed in Oregon.
Jensen said the new legislation dramatically limits how police are
allowed to intervene during these incidents with restrictions on the
use of pepper spray and other tools normally used in crowd control
environments, including 40mm less-lethal devices.
"Does that mean we are now like a lawless city, anyone can come in and
just bash around and do all the damage they want without any
repercussions whatsoever?" resident Linda Witt asked during the
Yes, Linda. That's exactly what it means.
I really wish these fuckers would come to my city and try to pull this
None of them would be going home.
So much for law and order in Oregon.
I'm not surprised there were no store owners defending their property.
That would never happen around here.
Dead Antifa would be littering the streets.
What city are you claiming as "here",
where store owners would be killing
numerous rioting "Antifa" ?
Just a reminder, even in the famous 1992 Los Angeles
riots and arson's where Koreans used firearms to
defend their businesses - In the end, not a single person
was shot and killed by the Korean shop owners — just
warning shots to chase away potential looters and arsonists.
