Portland Riots
« on: July 19, 2020, 12:48:50 PM »
Watch these videos. Most are short. 

This isn't a protest; it's rioting by thugs.   Why do the dimokrats (who are in charge, by the way) not put an end to this?  Everything bad that people on the right say about them appears to be spot on.

Portland seems to be out of control.  Does the mayor et al. expect all this to stop without intervention?

I don't.  The mob is emboldened.

I don't get it.

But, but, but I thought they'd arrested the 3 or 4 kids responsible.
I mean it'll all die down in a couple of days

Interesting to recall folks there rioted after Trump was elected.  Is that Trump's fault?

And the city "leaders" are calling for investigations into Federal agents "kidnapping" vandals.

The dims are clearly on the side of anarchy.

The term "kidnapping" is being used for sensationalistic purposes and is obviously  being wrongly applied.

This is true - I saw it on an MSNBC News clip.  They're showing video of camo-clad federal "troops" who cannot be identified (no name tags or identifying markings of any kind) who are rounding up peaceful protestors into unmarked cars and driving them away to places unknown.  They showed a peaceful protestor pick up a tear gas canister that was shot at him and roll it (or kick it - don't remember?) back across the street towards the "stormtroopers" who threw it at him, and they then shot him in the head with a "non-lethal" bullet? that put him in the hospital with a fractured skull.  The narrative there is that Trump is calling in the federal gestapo goons who are unaccountable, unneeded and causing problems.  

It's amazing to watch the different perspective and tone of the news from the two partisan news organizations.

Yes, it's amazing to see the 'credible' news media and the dims always refer to "peaceful protesters", ignoring the arson, assault and battery, and vandalism.   In fact they are so peaceful that Minneapolis requested $16 million in federal aid to repair buildings and infrastructure damaged by their peaceful protests.   

However, as @Drew4UTk pointed out, that does not excuse the unmarked troops taking these thugs into custody without having read them their Miranda Rights.   That notwithstanding, Pelosi's tweet is pretty revolting.  Has she ever condemned the violence and vandalism?

Interesting take - he said/she said.
And even then, Pettibone says he rights were read to him, he refused to talk without a lawyer and was released within 90 minutes. 
US Marshals Service says it didn't happen at all.


https://www.opb.org/news/article/federal-law-enforcement-unmarked-vehicles-portland-protesters/

SNIP:
Pettibone said he was put into a cell. Soon after, two officers came in to read him his Miranda rights. They didn’t tell him why he was being arrested. He said they asked him if he wanted to waive his rights and answer some questions, but Pettibone declined and said he wanted a lawyer. The interview was terminated, and about 90 minutes later he was released. He said he did not receive any paperwork, citation or record of his arrest.

“I just happened to be wearing black on a sidewalk in downtown Portland at the time,” Pettibone said. “And that apparently is grounds for detaining me.”

In a statement, the U.S. Marshals Service declined to comment on the practice of using unmarked vehicles, but said their officers had not arrested Pettibone.

“All United States Marshals Service arrestees have public records of arrest documenting their charges. Our agency did not arrest or detain Mark James Pettibone.”

One weapon against these thugs that I haven't seen used (maybe we don't have it in our inventory) is the water cannon...one heck of deterrent
