That weasel Mayor Wheeler of Portland just got a wake up call.
“I’m going to sue everybody who the facts and the law support being sued,” attorney Harmeet Dhillon told “Fox & Friends” hosts on Tuesday.
Ngo, a contributor for Quillette who covers Antifa, was seen on video being punched, kicked and doused with a milkshake during a clash between Antifa and those of the right-wing hate group Proud Boys on Saturday. Several people were arrested throughout the day, but Dhillon said those apprehended attacked police, and the people responsible for the attack on Ngo have not been held responsible.
“That’s disturbing,” Dhillon said. “Law enforcement is aware of the names of those people, at least some of them.”
Police were not seen in the video of Ngo’s attack, and Dhillon argued that authorities in the city of Portland were not adequately prepared for what they should have known would be a violent confrontation between the two groups. She explained that although the police chief is responsible for designing a plan and presence, the mayor and other city leaders give specific instructions to law enforcement during such events.
“The situation on the ground in Portland and policing is so bad that the sheriffs of the adjoining counties have refused to send mutual aid to Portland because they don’t want their own officers to be attacked,” Dhillon said.
“Portland has been consistently understaffed these types of incidents, and there have been many incidents,” she continued. “They knew they were aware that this was going to happen and they did nothing to prevent it.”
My bold, she is absolutely correct on that point,
PORTLAND, ORE. — Clacakams County Sheriff’s deputies are no longer responding to routine calls for service within the City of Portland.
On Friday, Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts said in an email to deputies, “I will not place you at unnecessary personal and professional risk.”
Roberts cited safety concerns and told deputies he did not want to put them in danger out of district.
Oh it gets better,
Portland mayor should be investigated by feds over Antifa attack on conservative writer, Sen. Cruz says
Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler should be investigated by federal law enforcement officials following his handling of the protests in his city this weekend that saw a conservative writer purportedly attacked by members of Antifa, Sen. Ted Cruz said.
The comments from the Texas Republican come as a video is circulating on the internet purportedly showing editor Andy Ngo being pelted with eggs, milkshakes and other objects on Saturday in Oregon’s largest city. At least three people were arrested and several others were reported injured there throughout the day during a series of demonstrations, as members of Antifa and other leftist groups clashed with members of the far-right Proud Boys and conservatives, police said.
“To federal law enforcement: investigate & bring legal action against a Mayor who has, for political reasons, ordered his police officers to let citizens be attacked by domestic terrorists,” Cruz tweeted alongside a story recapping the incident surrounding Ngo.
Richard Grenell, a current U.S. Ambassador to Germany and Fox News contributor, tweeted that he has asked the Justice Department to “investigate the incident in Portland.”
“I can’t just sit by and watch my friend be brutally attacked,” he added.
Peter Boghossian, a professor at Portland State University, said in a tweet that it is “past time” to “impeach” Wheeler.
The mayor’s office did not respond to a request for comment from Fox News at the time of publication of this article.
Mayor Wheeler and his little pets ANTIFA are about to find themselves under a microscope.
I have told people recently that Portland is imploding from all of this political fuckery out of the Mayor’s office and that there have been signs of the stress showing for a while now.
The Portland police have a serious problem attracting new hires and anyone who can get out, is.
This is going to have a long term effect on the city.
As it is, you are basically on your own if you venture downtown while these ANTIFA punks are around in any numbers.
To be honest, I am really surprised no one has gotten killed yet.
When that does finally happen then all bets are off and I fully expect the Feds to get called in over this.
I am also kind of surprised not a single Senator from the State of Oregon has said a word about it.
That’s one of those things that make you go Hmmmm.
