At 9:00 A.M. this morning, members of the Portland Police Bureau’s Rapid Response (RRT) Team were deputized as Federal Marshals. This will allow federal prosecutors to charge allegations of assault on a federal officer to anyone who attacks a deputized Portland Police Bureau Officers.
“Portland Officers have been serving on the front lines of nightly protests for months, sustaining injuries and encountering unspeakable violence,” stated Superintendent Travis Hampton. “If I am to send them into harm’s way this weekend, on my authority, I’m going to ensure they have all the protections and authority of an OSP Trooper.”
Along with the Oregon State Police who are also sworn as Federal Officers, this will enable any persons who commit violent acts towards our Law Enforcement Officers to be charged federally. The Oregon State Police and Portland Police will continue to make arrests on state charges. Those cases are then reviewed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office, and federal prosecutors will determine if any cases warrant federal charges.
“I want violent individuals thinking about the enhanced penalties they may face if they harm a Portland Police Bureau Officer,” Hampton said.
90% of Portland Rioters Are Rewarded for Months of Destruction; Attempted Cop Killer Released
There’s a saying in management circles and parenting groups: That which is rewarded is repeated. Portland, Ore., has just ensured that its pet rioters will feel free to continue their destructive fires, looting, and terror attacks. These have been going on since late May, with only a brief respite during the wildfires. Apparently smokey air quality interferes with setting the police precincts on fire.
An analysis of antifa and Black Lives Matter, Inc™ rioters by KOIN 6 News shows that of the 213 people arrested by police in September alone, charges against 90% of them were dropped. Ninety percent.
Portland has been the scene of ongoing nightly riots since the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody. Rioters are indulged and protected by the Portland ruling class. Those criticizing the rioters are dismissed as racists and other “ists” and shouted down from [im]polite society as supremacists of one sort or another. Business owners in downtown Portland, where most of the destructive riots have occurred, are already in economic free fall from the coronavirus shutdowns. City Hall has gotten an earful from them, including a prominent parking lot and real estate mogul, who sent the mayor photos of trash, graffiti, and dreck just steps away from city hall and demanded he do something about it.
KOIN 6 News reports that the vast majority of the cases brought against rioters were these (in order):
Interfering with the peace officer
Assaulting an officer
Attempted assault on peace officer
Possession of a destructive device
Unlawful use of a weapon
Unlawful possession of a firearm
Felon in possession of a firearm
Interfering with a police officer is likely to get most people arrested and prosecuted, but not so in Portland.
This was an execution meant to start a civil war. It will continue to happen until the conservative start fighting back en mas and that will be exactly what the Bolsheviks want! Just like in 1917 Russia. Same tactics, same results. The patriots must move soon if they truly 'are in control' because from here, it's beginning to look like they're not!
How can you make that kind of a determination? The shooter clearly had the pistol racked and pointed at the victim's head the moment the victim sprayed the pepper spray. This was not combat. This was an execution!
