Portland: ‘The city is in peril’

Rains PDX, a Portland clothing door, recently closed its doors permanently.

In its letter, the store said it was due to the 15 break-ins in the last year and half and the city’s unwillingness to deal with the city’s rampant crime rate.

Yet, certain politicians and media outlets are downplaying this bloodshed, while others are blaming it on Covid—a claim at odds with the facts. Just Facts argues that the FBI and legacy media are trying to downplay the murder epidemic by citing incomplete data. They are using a system …
