Portland Anarchists Incite Riot, Attempt to Commit Arson

Wonder if they’re missing those DHS and Customs officers yet?

While the eyes of the nation were witnessing mass chaos and misguided deeds in Chicago, police out in the Pacific Northwest seemed to have their hands full.

Portland, Oregon has been a city on the edge for several weeks now.  Much like the unrest in Washington DC some months ago, daily peaceful protests seem to give way to nightly nonsense as anarchists and agitators take advantage of the crowd cover to push the limit on what unrest can look like.

For weeks, President Trump had stationed DHS and Customs officers in the city in an attempt to quell the riots.  Their presence seemed to have the opposite effect from the intended one, and they were soon recalled.

This brought a brief bit of calming energy to the situation…but, alas, this was only temporary.

A riot was again declared by authorities Sunday night in Portland when protesters marched to a police union building, blocked a road and set dumpster fires as officers work to quell nightly unrest in Oregon’s largest city.

The protest was broken up almost as soon as it formed outside the Portland Police Association building – the same building where protesters were dispersed after a fire was started inside the union’s offices the night before. Demonstrators had marched to the building from a nearby park. The road was blocked with fencing, and flames were seen rising from dumpsters in the middle of the street.

Police began forcing the crowd of a couple hundred away from the building. While demonstrators were being dispersed, commercial-grade fireworks were thrown at officers, injuring two, police said. The department released photos of the officers’ injuries, including a photo of a face covering that “partially melted” from the firework. The officers were treated at the scene.

Concurrently, clear across the country in Chiraq, mass looting erupted after a confusing officer-involved shooting of a young black man took place.
