And some people were saying that passing concealed carry legislation would bring on the days of the Wild West. As it turns out, following leftist policies does that.
At least 100 self-proclaimed anarchists tore through Portland, setting dumpsters aflame, smashing windows and causing $500,000 in damage, but police stood idle because of a new state law that restricts how law enforcement can respond to riots.
The city just reached the ‘grim’ milestone of 1,000 shootings through 2021 in what has been a year of destructive protests, violent street clashes and a police staffing crisis.
Now police say a recently passed law ties their hands even further as it prohibits police from using crowd control techniques like pepper spray or tear gas. Instead, law enforcement agencies are told to rely on follow-up investigations to hold rioters accountable.
Residents frustrated by the violence last Tuesday questioned whether that meant anything goes now in Portland.
‘Does that mean we are now like a lawless city? Anybody could come in and just bash around and do all the damage that they want without any repercussions whatsoever?’ Linda Witt asked during the meeting with police.
Yes. Yes it does. And a majority of the folks in Portland voted for it.
The West Coast, CA, Or, and WA, 3rd world states.
Wait till the vaccine mandate hits Portland. More cops lost. Just like in Washington.
But hey, their lost is our gain in Arizona. The cops who refused to get a vaccine in their state are welcomed here, where we are more civilized than CA,WA and OR..
Same with nurses and other first responders.
“Now police say a recently passed law ties their hands even further as it prohibits police from using crowd control techniques like pepper spray or tear gas. Instead, law enforcement agencies are told to rely on follow-up investigations to hold rioters accountable.”
Well that makes a lot of liberal sense. Let all the law breaking happen, then choose who to go after based on their political views. It is exactly what happened with the single well known conservative protest/riot in the US over the last 20 months or so. Portland riot…pass. Again and again and again in Portland, pass on going after rioters, but did respond with muzzling the police. Baltimore riots? Pass. Any BLM riots anywhere? Pass. Trump supporters? Let it happen, then HUNT DOWN EVERY FACE CAUGHT ON VIDEO!!! Prosecute to the fullest extent of the law and make sure to tag all their social media friends as well.
They are creating the next level up from PC shaming. Make an environment where one political side can act in any way they desire, and the other must cower in homes or be arrested. Empowerment indeed. It is what they espouse, they just aren’t clear to or honest with the public when it comes to who is empowered.
Don’t worry everyone, Biden has a solution. ENDING CASH BAIL…
