Rioters, armed with industrial grade fireworks and green lasers turned a residential neighborhood into a war zone as they marched through Portland. The mob chanted about burning down the police stations in every city and town and tried to burn down one that they actually encountered. Police used CS gas and rubber bullets to defend their station from the violently progressive anarchists.
Rioters torch Portland precinct station
Hobbled police officials in rabidly liberal Portland, Oregon, weren’t allowed to declare a riot until the mob tried to torch their precinct. Rioters went straight for the security camera with a can of spray paint before attacking the front doors with an improvised battering ram. As soon as they cracked the doors, they started a fire.
As the anarchist rioters made their way through the streets chanting, “every city, every town. Burn the precincts to the ground,” law enforcement watched from the sidelines and didn’t do a thing. That’s exactly what they have been doing every night for the past two months as the children of darkness loot, pillage, and burn.
Social media was quickly flooded, reporter Hannah Ray Lambert “tweeted out numerous videos of the rioters, including when law enforcement officials advanced to clear them out of the area.” She described a “smoky (but not spicy) retreat” and doesn’t think the police were using tear gas at the time because they weren’t wearing masks. She noted that “some demonstrators are trying to reassemble the barricades now.”
Police issue warnings
Lambert also witnessed as “rioters also appeared to attempt to set a building on fire by lighting cardboard on fire and setting it up against the building.” The building was the police station. According to the Portland Police Department, “Some people in the crowd on N. Lombard St. and N. Campbell Ave are involved in criminal activity. It appears these people are trying to break into the Portland Police Association office.”
They had a stern message for the rioters. “to those attempting to break into and/or damage the Portland Police Association building: Stop now or you may be cited, arrested, or subject to use of force. If you are at this location to peacefully protest, know this criminal behavior is occurring and leave the area now.” Older Americans remember the days when protesters were met with water cannons and no fooling around when they got out of hand.
They made it official after their donut supply was threatened. “A riot has been declared at N Lombard St and N Campbell Ave,” the department continued. “You are ordered to disperse to the south immediately. Failure to comply with this order may subject you to citation or arrest, and may subject you to the use of crowd control agents and/or impact weapons.” The rioters responded with industrial fireworks, rocks, bottles, and green lasers. Oregon officials think it’s wonderful that their citizens can freely express their views and are ashamed at the disgusting repression shown by their officers who will soon be on the unemployment line because their services are no longer required.
