In yet another violent incident in riot-heavy Portland, BLM and Antifa rioters burned down buildings in the downtown area, including an Apple Store on Friday night.
"A building attached to the Apple Store in Pioneer Place is lit on fire as Security guards the Apple building," reads the caption to a tweet.
"A building behind the apple store was lit on fire tonight, Portland was very hot today!!!" exclaims the social media user.
In the videos, one can hear people cheering as the flames shoot higher and higher and the buildings burn in another of Portland's "mostly peaceful" protests.
Portland Police also released a series of images of the aftermath of these latest riots.:
As one can see, the damage to the Apple Store and the surrounding buildings was pretty extensive.
A riot was declared, and police and fire department officials arrived at the scene. Unfortunately it was too late for the Apple Store and many other businesses, as the fire had already spread inside buildings.
Chris Davis, Portland's acting Chief of Police, released the following statement:
"Damage to businesses hurts our City. Our community has made it clear that it will not tolerate wanton violence and destruction."
"No one is entitled to break windows, set fires, or attack police officers. If you choose to participate in this kind of criminal activity, you can expect to be arrested and prosecuted."
"None of this destruction tonight has anything to do with the important work of racial justice and reconciliation our community and our nation need at this critical time in our history."
