Police said a caravan of Trump supporters left downtown Portland around 8:30 p.m. Officers heard gunshots at about 8:46 p.m. CBS affiliate KOIN TV reports two men were seen yelling at each other. The altercation took place around that time. There are reports of hearing gunshots.
Officers arrived at the shooting scene “within a minute,” police said. A man was shot. His wounds took his life. A freelance photographer heard three gunshots. He then observed police medics working on the body of the victim. The victim appears to be a white man.
The freelancer said the man was wearing a hat bearing the insignia of Patriot Prayer. This is a group which clashes with the violent Antifa, BLM, Anarchist, and Islamist groups in Portland. These are the same non-taxpaying groups assaulting the citizenry, burning flags, bibles buildings and dumpsters.
They are the same groups blocking street use on downtown Portland. These are the rioters who control the city. They are the same Leftist, globalist violent protesters Mayor Stupid supports with his catch and release policies. These are the same groups the Portland leadership, Democrat leadership does not arrest, does not prosecute.
A dead body? How did that happen?
Police said the man’ chest shows evidence of a shooting. His identification was not immediately available for release. It’s unclear who shot him. Homicide detectives were looking for more evidence. They are acknowledging that several images and videos are on social media. This is war. Police involvement is going to go nowhere. The last three months have taught us that much.
A police statement said, “It is important for detectives get a full and accurate picture of what happened before, during, and after the shooting… If anyone was a witness, has video, or has information about the homicide, they’re asked to contact the primary detectives… This violence is completely unacceptable and we are working diligently to find and apprehend the individual or individuals responsible…”
The leaders in Portland need to stop clucking their tongues and saying tsk, tsk. They need to start restoring law and order. No More Bullshit. There have been protests in Portland for over 90 days. This has nothing to do with George Floyd in Minneapolis. This is simply the Local Democrat leadership failing.
Acting Homeland Security director Chad Wolf appearing on “Face the Nation” had a message. The Trump administration has been urging the local Democrat officials to send members of the National Guard to the city.
Wolf said, “We’ve been asking Portland to do their job really for over three months now… What you see in Portland is an environment; they foster an environment of this lawlessness and chaos.”
Mayor Wheeler and Oregon Governor Kate Brown refuse to act to restore order. What Happened in Portland? When is it going to happen again? Will it happen elsewhere?
