    New riots in Portland!

    And again, it's about George Floyd.

    Riot in downtown Portland marks one-year anniversary of George Floyd's murder

    Police said people in the crowd were throwing frozen water bottles and eggs at officers and metal spikes in the road.
    Just before 10 p.m., police said the crowd had marched to Portland City Hall on Southwest Fifth Avenue and Jefferson Street and broke windows. Moments later, they declared a riot.
    Police ordered the crowd to disperse and said those who continue to engage in criminal activity will risk being arrested.
    At 10:15 p.m., police said the crowd was marching in the downtown streets. Demonstrators broke windows at Estate Jewelry, Ruth's Chris Steak House and two Starbucks locations.
    There were some arrests made, but what use is arresting the perps if the pro-Antifa DA refuses to prosecute?

    It's very suspicious The Squad hasn't condemned this yet. What are they hiding?

    You're behind the times son! Non-violent rioters are being let go. But ever since the riots started turning nasty and violent, the DA and the cops are not playing around with them. I can tell you, and I live here, the people are really sick of the protestors. And violent offenders are now facing charges. The riotors have lost of a lot of support btw.

    Who are you trying to kid? Don't you know that those thousands of nonviolent demonstrators actually SUPPORT the dozens of violent thugs who are rioting just to loot stuff and cause Property Damage? That's serious stuff, not like killing cops in pursuit of overturning a national election or similarly innocuous behavior. Derec only lives 3000 miles from there - these thugs are probably keeping him awake at night.

    What is it with the pacific northwest and this breed of protest hooligan? It is appears to be an occupation out there.

    Basically another police instigated riot.

    Proof the protest was valid.

    Defund the fuckers.

    Throw them out.

    Build the institution anew from the ground up.

    Is your concern that the defund the police movement in Portland has not resulted in enough excess homicides? 55 homicides in Portland in 2020 -- the most in 26 years -- involved victims from 8 months old to 71

    What is the right sacrificial number?

    The Gresham police are covering for the Portland police that are covering the demonstrations. One of the shootings this year was a Gresham cop shooting a man. The shooting is under investigation. So that is one cop killing someone. Our "right" number is 0. 0 people killed by cops. Maybe more defunding is needed to get to 0 next year.

    Some strange anarchist stronghold. I blame it on the lack of sunlight.

    Right, there's no relationship whatsoever between depolicing and crime rates. Got it.
