Federal police in Portland?

Post by TomCat88 » Fri Jul 17, 2020 8:44 pm

Interesting new(?) tactic. Man shot in face with non-lethal bullet has fractured skull. Arrests made by unmarked police.


MSU - 14 team National Champions (most recent 2011); 52 individual National Champions (most recent 2017).

WOW!!!
UNMARKED soldiers and vehicles in an American city???
The mayor and governor did not ask for federal assistance, but POTUS sending the troops in? This is not America! These are banana republic actions.

Portland has been dealing with protests and violence for 46 days straight. The local government won’t do anything. Watch some of the video of these riots and tell me that it was not time for drastic measures to provide a safe environment for the citizens of Portland.

I hope you guys realize that when you talk about unmarked soldiers, vehicles, shootings, injuries and death, that you could be talking about any inner city in the US right now - AND POLICE OR FEDERAL AGENTS ARE NOT DOING THE SHOOTING! The instigators are also using real bullets. How come you guys don’t talk about the 1 year old kid recently killed in a drive by shoooting in Chicago?

Because it does not fit the narrative and it is terrible for fund raising...

You conservatives were soooo big on supporting of state rights and to govern themselves free of federal interference. Small government. Not so much these days I see.


Don't let this distract you from the fact that the griz blew a 22-0 lead.

Most of the "reasons" the DHS even cited for this bull**** was 'graffiti'. Graffiti...

Can you imagine how bad this would be without Federal Police in Seattle?

I totally agree with you, along with any other city that has chosen to go this route, because I see it as them burning liberal votes, but Portland filed a lawsuit so it is in the courts hands now. I will be quite interested in how this turns out as it will most likely go to the supreme court.

The only problem that I see with letting them collapse is that if the Anti-Americans regain control of the White House and an the American people again, they will then use the chaos to rationalize a Federal Police State. Edit: However, the only way I see them winning back the White House is if the anti-American base that subscribe to the "you work - we eat" policy has grown to outnumber property taxpaying American Citizens.

I think it's kind of funny how people actually think that city would collapse. It's pretty clear what news you're being fed in Montana. Or what people choose to focus on.

Yes, looting and the violent protesters ****** suck. Believe it or not, it's not secluded to Portland. They're terrible people and are giving this movement a bad name. And even a lot of those were actively instigated. Most of the protestors are peaceful. I find it laughable that no one talks about the trigger happy cops that do react to them, unprovoked. There is plenty of video evidence of this too.

Well said CatBlitz, but instead of applying the system of laws in place against this, the liberally controlled cities are choosing to look the other way as well as many are cutting police budgets that good citizens pay for in order to be protected against this sort of violence. Antifa and BLM are actively created constructs of the big money of the left.

You are listening to fake news, the officers have police on both the front and back of their uniforms, a unit insignia on each shoulder and an personal identifier patch also, the I identify themselves to those they are arresting but are not required to identify to onlookers. There are no requirements that the vehicles be marked. They are only operating around federal facilities that are being damaged. If local law enforcement are unable to protect the federal facilities then the federal government has a duty to protect them.

Correct, there is absolutely no surprise who they are. They are there to make sure no federal buildings are destroyed. If local leaders would do their job there would be no reason for their presence. It's the old adage; if you don't want to be arrested quit being stupid and breaking the law.

Now with the disaster continuing in chicago they may be sent there. They should change mayor lightfoot's name to "light in the loafers"... She is useless.

Nazi and white supremacy groups getting Lone Wolf antagonists to do their dirty work. Tons of Timothy McVeigh types living their dream.

Just glad there are no left, far-left groups involved. How far to the right does one go before they start becoming left.

And those of us the are right inclined DO NOT support any of those that are that are supposed far-right that cause any problems.

Those on the left seem to have no issues with the unrest. I have not seen one dissenting remark regarding the protests/rioting. Too many being silent if they do not support it.

If there are far right racist groups in these riots, since Trump called these troops in to battle the riots wouldn’t Trump be fighting against racism? Does that still meet your narrative of Trump being a racist?
