Portland, Oregon has been forced to declare a riot after a group of roughly 100 people engaged in “autonomous demonstrations” near an Immigrations and Customs Enforcement facility. In what is being deemed “May Day” occurred as the protests evolved into a full-fledged riot. At least fourteen arrests were made, including one individual who allegedly menaced officers with a knife.

Fox News reports between 9 and 10 p.m. local time Sunday, “one group of about 30 individuals gathered near the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility and another group of about 80 to 100 people gathered in Shemanski Park. Both events had been promoted as ‘autonomous demonstrations,’ according to the Portland Police Bureau.” The attacks were “similar to prior events where participants engaged in criminal behavior including arson, assault, vandalism and theft.”

The Portland Police Department chronicled the incident on Twitter with several pictures of the damage to the area. “Three separate Starbucks sustained window damage. The Hilton sustained graffiti on the wall during the riot in Downtown Portland” Tweeted @PortlandPolice.

A report said arrests were made and the group dissolved by around 11 p.m. A separate group “clashed with federal authorities stationed at the city’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement building. The clash reportedly led to officers firing pepper ball rounds” reported Fox News.

In a released statement, Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell said “We appreciate those who engaged in their First Amendment rights this afternoon in a peaceful manner. Once again, under the cover of darkness, several dozen people decided to damage and destroy multiple businesses in our downtown area resulting in a riot.”

“The situation became extremely dangerous when a man brandished a knife at officers when officers were simply doing their job. The officers appear to have exercised restraint and professionalism and safely apprehended this suspect. I am proud of all of our employees who worked to minimize further damage and arrest some of the criminals involved” the statement concluded.

    LEO ought to open a betting pool, like the ones used for groups to wager on the NCAA basketball tournament, on how many of those 14 mostly peaceful but masked and armed demonstrators will be charged, and how many will serve jail time. Right off I’ll place my bets on “zero” and “zero”. That is consistent with ongoing data. Since it is getting warmer in Portland it is time for Mayor Wheeler to announce that he is turning up the fans on the Antifa/BLM rioters.

    A few months ago he “turned up the heat” on the demonstrators, which reportedly turned out to be providing heated kiosks so they could prepare, rest and pack up after their riots. This time it will be providing locations with air conditioning and ventilation so the mostly peaceful Democratic intimidation and destruction gangs can perform their “Art” in a comfortable setting.

    Really odd, now that the ultra-left loonies won the POTUS race, the Capitol Hill Autistic Zone, CHAZ-style insurrections are not allowed anymore.

BLM DC Makes Vile Comment about Officers Called ‘Heroes’ When Shot in the Line of Duty

A suspect is still at large after opening fire on police officers in Northwest D.C. Sunday night. One officer was shot, and fortunately suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was released from the hospital after being treated.

Black Lives Matter took the opportunity to make vicious remarks about cops who are targeted. The D.C. Police Department gave a press conference detailing the situation that had occurred and applauded the police department for “courageously” chasing the suspect before he was able to evade police.

The Police Chief asked for citizens to avoid the area where the suspect was last seen and encouraged the public to reach out to their department with any information that could be helpful to the case.

Black Lives Matter took the opportunity to promote its #StopMPD campaign and warn against “copaganda.” Black Lives Matter DC’s official Twitter account posted:

“This is the point we’ve been making for months, Look at the reaction and coverage tonight. Tearjerker press conferences and proclamations of heroes coming soon. Imagine if people knew these folks’ names. Being Black in DC is more dangerous than any job.”

In a follow-up tweet, the account stated “This isn’t to say these scenarios represent what happened tonight, but it does explain our skepticism, interest in details, and highlights the difference in how people talk and act when an officer is hurt vs when they hurt a Black person. No one asks what the cop did wrong.”

Another Victim Thrown on NYC Subway Tracks, 62-Year-Old Man Suffered Lacerated Leg

NYC Subway

Just over a week ago, 40-year-old Asian American Michelle Alyssa Go was pushed to her death in front of a train on the subway tracks of New York City’s Times Square. Another individual was shoved onto the tracks on Sunday.

New York Police Department said both attacks were unprovoked and called upon leadership officials to do more to protect the city’s citizens. Sunday’s victim was a 62-year-old man whose name has not been publicly released.

He was pushed onto the tracks in Lower Manhattan’s southbound train at the Fulton Street subway station. He sustained a leg laceration and police said there have not yet been any arrests in connection with the incident.

Go’s attacker was identified as Martial Simon, a 61-year-old homeless man with a history of violence and mental health issues. He was charged with second-degree murder. The New York Times reported that shortly before Go’s death, another woman saw him acting suspiciously and later told police she was afraid he was going to push her onto the tracks.

Subway attacks are the latest increase of issues that face Democrat New York Mayor Eric Adams. Adams has pledged to fight crime but has already implemented plans to minimize punishments for criminals in an effort to keep young men, particularly of color, out of prison.

Despite overall subway riding being down since the pandemic, the subway system has seen an increase in assaults last year. “According to the NYPD, 461 felony assaults were reported on the subway system in 2021, of which 30 involved a person being pushed onto the subway tracks. That’s an increase from the year before when there were 26 reported subway-pushing incidents” reports The Washington Post.

New York’s liberal leadership have been vocal supporters of the defund the police movement and saw the city turn to the wild west with protestors taking over the city during the Black Lives Matter movement shortly after George Floyd’s death. Rising crime and gun violence have plagued the city.
