Police arrest 15 more after overnight protests in Portland

(Reuters) - Police arrested another 15 people in Portland after protests were held overnight on Sunday near a police precinct as the Oregon city has crossed 100 days of demonstrations that have at times turned violent.

Protesters set fire on some mattresses that were put out eventually by firefighters, Portland police said in a statement.

The police said there were no injuries, adding they arrested 15 people on charges like interfering with a peace officer, disorderly conduct, possession of a dangerous device and reckless burning.

The development came a night after Portland police arrested 59 people and used tear gas late on Saturday as protesters threw rocks and fire bombs at officers.

Portland has seen nightly protests for over three months that have at times turned into violent clashes between demonstrators and officers, as well as between right- and left-wing groups.

Demonstrations erupted around the United States following the death in May of George Floyd, a Black man, after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes.

President Donald Trump signed a memo on Wednesday that threatens to cut federal funding to "lawless" cities, including Portland. His Democratic challenger in the Nov. 3 presidential election, Joe Biden, has accused Trump of stoking violence with his rhetoric.

Assuming that's right, you think that's a good thing !?! Imagine bragging that 7% of a groups activities are violent.  The military's numbers are minuscule in comparison. 

What percent of John Wayne Gacy's interactions with people were peaceful? 99.99?   DO you defend Gacy as being "mostly peaceful" around kids?

What an insanely dumb standard to normalize violence.

Wrong.  Not according to the Medical Examiner who would actually KNOW.  But I won't expect you to understand what you are pushing is crap & you should be ashamed.

https://www.npr.org/sections/live-updates-protests-for-racial-justice/2020/06/04/869278494/medical-examiners-autopsy-reveals-george-floyd-had-positive-test-for-coronavirus#:~:text=Floyd's%20death%20has%20been%20ruled,restraint%2C%20and%20neck%20compression.%22

The  autopsy report  from Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office concludes the cause of death was "cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restraint, and neck compression." That conclusion, death due to heart failure, differs from the one reached by an independent examiner hired by the Floyd family; that report listed the cause of death as "asphyxiation from sustained pressure."

It was going on about how Mexicans and Blacks are hellbent on murdering me because I am white, but what really stood out to me was the end.... Damn I forgot, I guess racism was the only message...

What i took from your post is that Trump's dick holds a lot of fascination for you.

No one else seems to be interested in it one way or the other, so what is your deal with it?

I don't have any deal with it. If micropenis is your thing, then it is your thing. Gay rights and all that. 

I only ever mention it cuz I know it will infuriate him, and thus infuriate his whores.

At least he's not swallowing it. It's really quite sad to watch about a third of America getting used to deep throating Trump lies to the point they no longer gag and are actually wanting four more years of it.

Arresting these thugs is a good thing but if they turn around and let them out it does no good, these idiots will be doing the same thing the next night. If the powers that be in portland want this crap to stop, arrest them, charge them, and put them on trial. If they are found guilty, throw them in prison. In other words, hold them accountable. Make them pay for their actions. Barring consequences, these idiots will not stop.
