Portland, Oregon continues to serve as the front lines in a war between police and what Trump called "ugly anarchists" in the Beaver State's largest city. Last night, a riot was declared as Antifa militants set fires to police buildings.
Antifa demonstrators in Oregon were met with harsh retaliation from police, as law enforcement attempted to push the rioters from burning down residential areas, as well as the police building on East Burnside Street. Multiple protestors were detained—a mission protestors achieved, as per video evidence.
One video shows protestors wielding bludgeoning weapons, as one "activist" appears to be holding a nightstick.
According to OregonLive, the Antifa protestors threw eggs and other seemingly harmless projectiles at police. Protestors were told to clear the area more than three hours earlier.
Portland Police announced in a social media statement that the situation had officially met "riot" level, telling citizens—including media and onlookers to leave the residential areas that the riots had spilled over to.
"Failure to adhere to this order may subject you to arrest, citation, or crowd control agents, including, but not limited to, tear gas and/or impact weapons," police warned.
