The police in Portland, Oregon, yesterday arrested at least eight people that reportedly damaged both federal and private property.
Police Dealing with Protestors, Most Were Peaceful
There were dozens of protestors in Portland, Oregon, that took to the streets. They were in Oregon’s largest city preceding the inauguration of President Joe Biden. I can’t say I blame them and they were beyond pissed about the election fraud of our now former president the great Donald Trump! Many were carrying Black Lives Matters signs. I feel truly sorry for them and they are so delusional. I’m more in favor of them another holding a banner with anti-Biden sentiments. I’m not so sure about the anti-police slogans, though. The police are not our enemy. Everything in moderation!
Two protest events resulted in property damage and arrests. Though the demonstrations are largely peaceful, according to the Portland Police Bureau.
