Are the Police not allowed to arrest or shoot those who are taking over their Precinct? What gives here? Do they not have the manpower to defend their building? They had better start to do something or every precinct in the country is going to be taken down and burned!

Four arrests after several hours of anarchy! Four? The local authorities are gutless cowards and need to be recalled/ voted out/ chased out of Portland with brickbats.

It's time for the police to start shooting these vermin!!!! At this point, the evil rioters can do all the evil things they want, and hurt as many innocent people as they want, and they know that all the authorities are going to do is stand by and watch them. At worst, they may get arrested, and then let off with nothing more than a wink and a mild "slap on the wrist" punishment.

Sorry #3, but if the elected officials in Portland weren't elected officials, they would be out there rioting and destroying things with the rioters. Don't expect them to do anything to stop the rioters when they believe exactly the same things as the rioters. And the idiot voters knew this and voted them into office anyway. It's up to the governors, but most of them are either equally nutcase lie-berals (and not so secretly support the rioters) or are spineless wusses scared of being accused of being racists if they take any action!!!

These are no longer protests or protesters. Notice should go out to the BLM communist thugs that they are no longer welcome in any city and no longer will any of their protests be tolerated. There are no peaceful protests. This should be the end game. Full force should be used against them to end this rebellion and insurrection. Screw their demands and screw their leaders. Crush them and end it now. Democrats/communists have turned us into a freakin 3rd world country, a freakin banana republic. Got it.

It's a predominantly black area of town, so, most of the damage done by Black Lives Matter is, of course, to black businesses.

Since Trump was elected president, Portland has seemed like AntiFa headquarters. Any peaceful, conservative gathering was violently attacked by AntiFa thugs and the police stood by and watched, either by choice or on orders from the mayor. My giveadam meter won't move even a hair. They wanted this kind of a city, and now they have it.

For about four days, the radio waves would arrive at random. Then, for the next 12, nothing. Then, another four days of haphazard pulses. Followed by another 12 days of silence. The pattern—the well-defined swings from frenzy to stillness and back again—persisted like clockwork for more than a year. Dongzi Li, a doctoral student at the University of Toronto, started tracking these signals in 2019.
