With some people, you’re just not sure you can talk with them. They’re on a different planet. There maybe drugs and mental illness involved. They offend regularly. Democrats have failed at least a generation in their need to overthrow the last free nation on earth. Intimidation is a war tactic. By drawing on her face and having wild eyes looking at the camera, one rioter has the equivalent of camouflage and the possible need for detox.
Democrats thirst for control
Portland, OR is one of several Democrat controlled cities ripped apart by rioting. The Multnomah County Sheriff’s office has released pictures of some arrested rioters. They’ve been taught to hate.
September 10 Ted Wheeler issued a directive to the local police force to discontinue the use of CS or tear gas.
Mr. Wheeler has heard from residents
Also known as taxpayers that aren’t happy. They’ll vote with their feet. Democrat Governor Wheeler invented a third way to talk out of his mouth. In his press release, he speaks of being sensitive to racial injustice. He spoke of ending CS gas and he spoke of simply reducing the violence.
“It’s time for everyone to reduce the violence in our community. We all want change. We all have the opportunity and obligation to create change. We all want to focus on the fundamental issue at hand – justice for Black people and all people of color. That’s why, as Police Commissioner, effective immediately and until further notice, I am directing the Portland Police to end the use of CS gas for crowd control. I commend the work that the Oregon State Legislature and Joint Committee on Transparent Policing and Use of Force Reform have done to date to convene experts to evaluate the use of gas and what safer alternatives may exist that prevent the need for greater force. I commit the City of Portland to full participation in these reforms and encourage the Legislature to take up this issue as soon as possible.”
The Democrat Governor continued. “During the last hundred days Portland, Multnomah County and State Police have all relied on CS gas where there is a threat to life safety. We need something different. We need it now. Arson, vandalism, and violence are not going to drive change in this community. I expect the police to arrest people who engage in criminal acts. I expect the District Attorney to prosecute those who commit criminal acts. And I expect the rest of the criminal justice system to hold those individuals accountable. We must stand together as a community against violence and for progress. I call on everyone to step up and tamp down the violence. I’m acting. It’s time for others to join me.”
Police in Democrat controlled cities are leaving
They can’t do their jobs. Their families and homes are threatened so they quit and leave the state they wanted to protect. The Portland Police Bureau made an equally public announcement on their page regarding their thoughts.
Law enforcement aims to do just that, enforce the law. Sometimes deadly force is needed because the messenger (the police) has his or her own life threatened. The lawbreaker does not want to obey the law to that extent. In this case, it’s just a matter of asking the protesters to back off. CS gas or tear gas effects last 10 – 30 minutes. This often gives enough time for the person hit with it to back off and ask themselves if they want to continue.
Pray that these protesters find the help they need.
