BLM and Antifa rioters recognize that elected Representatives in the Democrat cities are allowing their behaviors. They are ordering police forces to stand down from enforcing the law. Castigating their own employees for protecting themselves and those around them.
…So at what point, faced with assassination attempts, do the police go rogue and form their own death squads to neutralize their enemies? That’s what generally happens in corrupt third-world polities, which is what our Democrat-run cities are becoming.
To wit: I dryly note that the Mayor of Portland is currently polling quite badly against his opponent who has said that she “is Antifa”
Many of the Portland police force are quitting, going out on disability, retiring outright, or “retiring on the job.”
What would YOUR response be if you were in their shoes and getting assaulted night after night, and your bosses encouraged lawlessness in your city?
