Police and Residents in Portland Forced to Go Through the Same Routine Again -- They Could Learn From Residents of Colorado

Kate Brown and the Trump administration to reduce federal officers in the city, nightly protests remained largely peaceful without major confrontations between demonstrators and officers.

It is a sad commentary that the local police in Portland are somewhat powerless to put a stop to the nightly rioting, and the moronic rioters are seemingly impervious to the reality that no one really cares what they are doing any longer.  They have simply devolved to rioting as a pastime.  Not too much different happened tonight.  Crowds showed up, marched from point A to point B while the police watched.  Then some idiots decided to target the police union headquarters, pulled off some protective wood panels, broke a window, and then started a fire inside the office.

Not long after, the police declared a riot and ordered the crowd to disperse or they would be subject to arrest for unlawful assembly.

Dozens of idiots ran around with their cell phones recording whatever was happening around them, wearing a sign that said “Press” and feeling good about the incredibly important public service they think they are doing in bringing these pictures to the world.

And the world laughs.

Make sure you get to the bottom — Colorado residents showed a “different” approach to the problem today.

Here is the night in pictures from Portland:


With the fires, the Police stepped up their enforcement action and began their efforts to disperse the crowds.

This tweet below comes from one of the regular members of the “iPhone Press Corps” who spends his nights deluding himself into believing he’s doing some great public service by showing up to take videos of the action on his phone.  You can hear the sad lament in his words — “I’m really depressed .. Every push and shove …they smile and laugh” at us.


Hey Griffin — we’re all laughing because of your pathetic worldview that makes you believe you are doing something meaningful night after night.  I post your videos in these nightly recaps for entertainment purposes.  All you are really doing is giving the wider world the chance to laugh.


Q: “Shouldn’t a female officer pat her down?”


A: “How do you know I don’t identify as female?”

Welcome to the woke world Antifa/BLM — how do you like it now?

About 1000 miles away, Antifa got a little different version of the “welcome wagon” rolled out for them in a residential neighborhood in Colorado.

Details have been a bit difficult to come by but from an extended Facebook video some Antifa punks showed up to “counter-protest” at a pro-Police rally.  In the first video, a group of local residents began walking the Antifa folks out of the neighborhood, but the morons didn’t realize that they are being walked into a trap as they were maneuvered into an open lot between two houses.  Make sure you have the volume turned up on these, but the language is pretty raw.  Then the residents did what the police are not allowed to do.  At the end of the second video, you can see several police officers arrive — a bit too late for the health of the Antifa “protesters”.


Just to add to their indignity, after the Police managed to separate the Antifa punks from the local residents, the punks decided to express their displeasure in the direction of the police.  So at least two of them were arrested based on what you can see in the video.
