No Moment of Silence In Portland Last Night -- Portland PD Clearly Losing Patience

Lots happening in Kenosha, so only a quick update on events overnight in Portland.

Once again the Portland PD seemed to willingly engage rioters on the rioters’ terms tonight.  It’s as if the rioters have been asking for this fight for months, and the Portland PD has made a decision to take them up on the invitation.  Every other tactic seems to have failed, with the riots going on endlessly.  The Portland PD can’t do the same as it will eventually lose a war of attrition.  Tonight seemed like a lesson in “How badly do you really want to do this? Really?”

Not much else for tonight.
