Portland Suddenly Upset Over Rioters Attempting To Light East Precinct On Fire

Where was Ted Wheeler’s concern when the same people were continuously attacking the federal building and federal employees, including with explosives and fire?

Portland mayor condemns rioters for ‘attempting to commit murder’

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler Thursday evening condemned the actions of rioters who attempted to set fire to a police precinct and blocked the exits while officers were inside.

“When you commit arson with an accelerant in an attempt to burn down a building that is occupied by people who you have intentionally trapped inside, you are not demonstrating, you are attempting to commit murder,” Wheeler said in a news conference with Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell.

These are the same people who’s behavior he mostly excused for months

“Don’t think for a moment that you are if you are participating in this activity, you are not being a prop for the reelection campaign of Donald Trump — because you absolutely are,” he said. “You are creating the B-roll film that will be used in ads nationally to help Donald Trump during this campaign. If you don’t want to be part of that, then don’t show up.”

A riot was declared Wednesday evening when agitators descended upon the Portland Police Bureau’s East Precinct building, spray-painted over security cameras, broke a glass door with a 2×4, lit a fire using an accelerant and threw fireworks and other objects at officers, according to FOX 12 in Portland.

Police said that a truck also attempted to run over officers.

Ah, so that’s what his actual concern is. Not the police officers, but, showing up on in a Trump ad.

Wheeler also urged peaceful protesters to avoid gatherings that could turn destructive or violent, according to Oregon Live.

“If you are a nonviolent demonstrator and you don’t want to be part of intentional violence, please stay away from these areas,” Wheeler said. “Our community must say that this violence is not Portland, that these actions do not reflect our values and these crimes are distracting from reform, not advancing.”

Except, they seem to represent the Portland community. How many are yelling for the city to put an end to this? They went after the East precinct Wednesday, then Thursday

Tensions between Portland police and a small group of protesters flared Thursday outside a Southeast Portland police precinct for the second straight night.

Police advanced on the demonstrators several times to keep them away from East Precinct, the site of a Wednesday night protest condemned by the city’s police chief and mayor after protesters damaged the building in various ways.

Police deemed Thursday night’s gathering unlawful soon after about 200 people converged outside the precinct. A few frontline protesters had splashed paint on the building, lit a fire in a trash can and argued with two bystanders who appeared to try to intervene.

Perhaps it’s time to just round them all up, throw them in jail. Well, that time was months ago. On the bright side, it’s reported that the Oregon State Police are part of the police line, and they all did

It would also be helpful if Mayor Ted wasn’t releasing those the police arrest

    There is already plenty of evidence to prosecute the members of BLM and Antifa under RICO. Obviously, they will scurry to change the names of their organizations to avoid prosecution. That is why you have to prosecute the members themselves, Just like any other criminal organization.
