One woman was killed and six others suffered bullets wounds in a “senseless” mass shooting in Portland Saturday, according to the local police department and mayor. An 18-year-old woman, who has not yet been publicly identified, died at a Portland hospital after gunfire struck seven victims around 2 a.m., according to the Portland police department and reports. The other six victims’ wounds are not life-threatening, cops said.(Snip)Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler was “heartbroken” by the “senseless” fatal shooting. “What happened early this morning is devastating. It’s tragic and it’s senseless,” Wheeler said at a press conference after the shooting,


This happened in the city's entertainment district, and local restauranteurs are calling for answers from Mayor Ted, who gave a blank check to Marxist rioters. Also, "senseless" is very disrespectful to The Community, which has no problem opening fire to solve the most petty disputes.

Rather amazing coming from the guy who has presided over 14 months of rioting, arson, looting, assault and theft without ever stating that any of it was senseless.

From last paragraph: The latest gunplay comes amid an uptick in shootings in Portland in 2021. Gunplay?? I suggest writer Sam Raskin speak with the victims and their families. Ask them how much play is involved with gunshot wounds.

FTA, "Downtown business owners look to Portland leaders for answers after deadly shooting": "We want people to feel safe coming downtown because we like doing business downtown. We’re basically trying to bring back and so I hope people are willing to come downtown," explained Randall Willhite, owner of PoBoyz. Willhite has a food truck near the scene of the shooting. On Saturday morning, he was at his business's first brick and mortar location which is still just a short distance away from the crime scene. He says already his business has had to deal with a broken window and they're not even officially open yet."

It is happening just as Wheeler and liberal DAs have planned, they are not interested in controlling crime they want power and to control people. They want societal breakdown and are causing it by non-enforcement of laws and allowing career criminals to run loose, along with their ''defund the police'' garbage. There's nothing ''senseless'' about it, it is a natural of his intended consequence of his bad policies. It's not ''gun violence'' it is CRIME. An anthropomorphic gun did not drive-by senselessly shooting people, a criminal did that, and he probably has multiple arrests for violent felonies, drugs, and including illegal weapons charges and was released to commit more crimes.

BTW, June 21, 2021: "WEST LINN, OR (KPTV) -- The Cambia Portland Classic which attracts some of the best players in the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) is moving to a new location outside of the city. Tournament Golf Foundation President Tom Maletis is citing health and safety concerns as a reason to relocate the nationally televised event. Maletis confirmed homeless camps in the area are the main concern. Response from the Mayor, Ted "No Backbone" Wheeler (D) "Mayor Ted Wheeler's office released a statement on the tournament decision to relocate saying: "We’re pleased that the decision was made to keep the tournament in the greater "Portland metropolitan area and look forward to its continuation in September 2021. We understand the tournament organizer’s concerns and we’re working to address those.”

Councilman Justin Brannan—a speaker wannabe who has demanded New York drivers “slow the [expletive] down”—is a lead-footed motorist whose car has been captured by speed cameras speeding in school zones 16 times, including on six occasions in the last five months, The Post has learned. Despite wagging his finger at speed demons, Brannan (D-Bay Ridge), has amassed 60 driving and parking violations since 2013 with his dark grey Ford SUV, public records show.

Denying Republicans a quorum to enact voting restrictions will cost Texas Democrats north of $1 million, according to the state legislator leading the fundraising effort. More than 50 Democratic members of the state House fled Austin for Washington, D.C., last Monday, paralyzing the House just as the GOP was advancing sweeping changes in elections during a special session. Under the Texas Constitution, the Legislature requires a quorum of two-thirds of lawmakers to be present to conduct state business in either chamber. The price of keeping the Democrats out of Texas through Aug. 7, when the session expires, is expected to be around $1.5 million,

House Democrats are trying to use a massive climate and infrastructure bill to change how Americans get around — by breaking states’ decades-old fondness for building highways. Legislation the House passed this month is the biggest advance yet in Democrats' efforts to bake climate policies into transportation, addressing the largest single contributor to the United States’ greenhouse gas output. It would also represent an historic shift away from the roads-first approach to federal transportation spending that has reigned since Dwight Eisenhower created the Interstate Highway System. But the bill is riling up opposition from two potential allies of the Democrats'
