Portland rioters set police union headquarters ablaze after 50 days of riots

After 50 days of violent riots in Portland, Ore., rioters set fire to the Portland Police Union in north Portland.


After 50 of violent riots in Portland, Ore., rioters set fire to the Portland Police Union in north Portland.

After setting fires, Antifa fled the scene.

The mob of Antifa rioters appear to have taken over the streets, while setting fires and causing mayhem and destruction.

This came during a weekend of rioting that saw rioters tearing down fencing around Portland's federal courthouse, to protect it from vandalism and destruction.

The charged interactions with officers appear to be part of Antifa's strategy to both incite police and engage the public on their side.

Violence against civilians also appears to be part of the strategy for Antifa's lawlessness.

Officials in Portland appear loathe to do anything about this, and are instead seemingly interested in giving more leeway to Antifa and their supporters. Both Oregon's senators and Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler are opposed to federal law enforcement's attempts to put an end to the violence and property destruction.

Portland police reported that the people gathered around the police precinct were interfering with the operations of a police facility. Law enforcement warned the rioters to move back, adding that "failure to follow this direction may subject you to arrest, citation, or use of force including crowd control munitions."

They added that rioters had successfully lit the PPA on fire, but responders were able to put the fire out in short order.

US President Donald Trump said "we are trying to help Portland, not hurt it. Their leadership has, for months, lost control of the anarchists and agitators. They are missing in action. We must protect Federal property, AND OUR PEOPLE. These were not merely protesters, these are the real deal!" This in defense of

Trump has come under fire his interest in safeguarding American cities from Antifa and BLM violence and riots.

Wheeler, however, has instructed his officers to not aid federal officers.

Friday marked 50 straight days of protest in Portland following the death of George Floyd, which has seen protesters and rioters involved in arson, vandalism, assault, and even murder.
