Portland protesters topple statues of Theodore Roosevelt, Abraham Lincoln in ‘Day of Rage’; police declare riot

I only wish this was Fake News

By Shane Dixon Kavanaugh | The Oregonian/OregonLive

A group of protesters toppled statues of former presidents Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln and shattered the entrance to the Oregon Historical Society in Portland’s South Park Blocks late Sunday before moving into other areas of downtown, smashing storefronts and engaging in other acts of destruction.

Police declared the event a riot and ordered people rampaging through the city’s streets to disperse but did not directly intervene until nearly an hour after the first statue fell. The crowd scattered when police cruisers flooded the area, and officers in tactical gear appeared to make several arrests.

    And sadly those arrested will soon be released.

    This Anarchy is not going to stop, until there are quick arrests and large fines imposed to repair damage.

        One question. “How can any sane person call these people “The New American Heroes” If anyone does, I feel truly sorry for our country.

    Unfortunately unless law and order is upheld and hold people accountable at the top, meaning DOJ,FBI, and the wealthy leaders of this country and lead by example there never be confidence in equal justice for all.
    Where is Barr and Durham, you can’t tell me you don’t have evidence so far to bring to grand jury for inditements, if Biden wins election you can count on Barr and Durham investigation will end.
    If it was you or me we be in jail by now.
    Drain the SWAMP !!!
