PORTLAND, Ore. — Protesters gathered at the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Center in South Portland on Saturday night.
According to reporters on scene, a crowd gathered and initially clashed with law enforcement at the ICE building and were bull rushed away before they returned.
No unlawful assembly had been called at the time. Pepperballs and CS gas were also used to disperse the crowd. According to eyewitness accounts from independent journalists, it was about an hour into a march and demonstration that ICE officials exited the building to clash with and disperse protesters after protesters tied balloons to the fence in front of the ICE building.


At around 10:30 p.m. protesters returned to the building to continue their demonstration. DHS and ICE officials had retreated back into the building.

Officials did emerge once again for crowd dispersal and used tear gas to disperse the crowd.

At around 11 p.m. Portland police began tweeting that they were assisting federal officers (Department of Homeland Security and ICE Agents) by making LRAD announcements warning protesters if they did not comply they might be subject to force. At that time, gas and pepperballs had already been deployed by federal agents.

Portland police also apologized to the South Portland neighborhood surrounding where the clash was occurring for both the noise and the CS gas deployed by federal agents.

It appears a smoke gun was also being used to try and disperse the crowd.
While shooting tear gas canisters, a fire ignited and was put out by protesters, according to eyewitness accounts.

Saturday night makes for the 126th night of protests in Portland since George Floyd, a Black man, was killed by a white Minneapolis police officer when he knelt on Floyd's neck for nearly eight minutes.
The ICE building and organization has not been a stranger to the protests, however, demonstrators have marched for various reasons over the last few months including the defunding/abolition of police and prisons, Black Lives Matter, and against police brutality against BIPOC people.

Don'cha just hate those latecomers who try to be 'hip' after the fact when the 'original hipsters' came and went...

Like new age hippies trying to recreate the 'hippy' era 40 years later for all the wrong reasons....

i.e., Hint: the party's over...

Exactly, we don't want to turn into the CCP... expedient as they were at crushing the people's cry for freedom.

As thin as it appears, we already have freedom and the rioters want to take it away.

We allow them the freedom to express their desires. We haven't reached the point of civil war... yet.

These rioters, or the ones that pull their strings, may be hoping for a death and will continue on with the hope of getting one. A death would give them a martyr just as John Brown became a martyr and rallying cry during our first civil war. This is the mentality of all of these useful idiots and they are just too dumb to realize how they are being played.

Good Community Policing, displaying Good Community Standards, Setting Good Standards while Serving AND Protecting Our Local Community!

was that apology written or spoken?

See? The Protestors Are Our Friends!!!





as the narrative continues to get driven south, oregon and it's citizens suffer at the hands of a mad man who continues to lead them down the wrong path, unimpeded

and America's Leadership Fails, America Fails...wwg1wga, and in a sinking boat, idk, oregon citizens are not going the same place idaho citizens are, or NY citizens or Arizona citizens

we're 50 States with minimum 5 rogue States...that's not acceptable


just saying...it's going to get worse in some places

A Minnesota judge has dismissed a third-degree murder charge filed against the former Minneapolis police officer who pressed his knee against George Floyd’s neck, but the more serious second-degree murder charge remains.
Hennepin County District Court Judge Peter Cahill’s ruling was made public Thursday. Chauvin now faces two counts going forward: second-degree murder and manslaughter. Cahill also denied defense requests to dismiss the aiding and abetting counts against three other former officers, Thomas Lane, J. Jueng and Tou Thao.

Democrats played down the riots real quick when polling data showed it was reflecting poorly for the leftist. They seem to almost have their radical agitators on a switch
Did they really think burning down businesses would translate into more votes?

OTOH, people will do uncharacteristically stupid stuff when in fear of loss of life, loss of family, loss of property brought by violent, chaotic mobs. Ask pre-Nazi Germans. Where do you think Sorass got the inspiration for BLM/Antifa? This NOT a justification for such fear and cowardice, it IS however, a matter of understanding that such stuff WILL happen and that those people being threatened and attacked do NEED help and support. Only a coward shepherd would let the flock be brutalized. And even a good shepherd can't cover the entire flock when tied down with other simultaneous attacks. War of any kind and size is brutal, bloody and hellish.
