PORTLAND, OR – It’s in our patriotic duty to watch out for each other. Our fellow man and woman deserve respect, understanding and compassion. Regardless of which aisle you lean towards, that fact will always be constant. So you can imagine that the support was absolutely outpouring. The vigil was for the recently-departed Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
The longest-serving female judge passed away last Friday, from recurring cancer. She was 87.
A little over two-hundred demonstrators, in the name of the Black Lives Matter movement, made their outrage heard. Of course, it initially had been an organizing of candles lit in memoriam. But as they came closer to Multnomah County Justice Center, buildings saw vandal.
Windows broken in, graffiti applied, activists arrested. Small prices to pay in contrast to the loss of innocent lives.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg had made huge strides for the rights of women. Of the nine women in 500 students, Ginsburg graduated Harvard Law School, top of her class. She pioneered women’s rights by challenging the constitution that the United States disregarded, regarding gender discrimination. What’s more, she was the first female tenured professor at Columbia law School.
She was an assist to women suffering. Whether through no education or unemployment.
While police made arrests, there was no usage of tear gas, as Mayor Ted Wheeler restricted their usage of the hurtful weapon.
Wheeler himself has been vocal in the protests of Black Lives Matter. He is both as mayor and police commissioner to the Portland police department. Yet, the protestors tend to look upon him negatively, as his favorability has gone down to 62%. Even after the tear-gass by federal agents and sending President Trump an angry open-letter, in response to the rude federal agents.
Finally, enjoy this.
