During the 56th night of rioting in Portland by people calling for the police to be defunded, the city’s mayor, Ted Wheeler decided words of support weren’t enough, so he joined last night’s violent demonstration.
Note: only 2,000 of the city’s 665,000 residents were at the protest — .3% of the population.
Breitbart tells the story:
The Oregonian reported that the mayor’s appearance on the 56th night of violent “protest” in downtown Portland “attracted attention and jeers from the crowd of more than 2,000 people” at the Mark O. Hatfield U.S. Courthouse.
USA Today reported: “The mayor was caught in a chaotic display of violence and mayhem that began around 11:15 p.m., after some protesters threw flaming bags of garbage over a fence protecting the local federal courthouse, prompting the federal officers to fire tear gas at the crowd.”
