The guy is going to Fuck Around And Find Out that he is not as untouchable as he thinks he is.
Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf on Thursday accused Portland politicians of enabling the “mob” of protesters who have besieged the city for more than six weeks — and posted a lengthy timeline of the damage caused by “violent anarchists.”
“The city of Portland has been under siege for 47 straight days by a violent mob while local political leaders refuse to restore order to protect their city,” Wolf said in a statement. “Each night, lawless anarchists destroy and desecrate property, including the federal courthouse, and attack the brave law enforcement officers protecting it
The city descended into chaos in the wake of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. While demonstrations took place in other cities and eventually fizzled out, in Portland they have gone on for more than six weeks, bringing violence and destruction of property.
Local businesses have reported $23 million in losses due to looting and rioting that have gripped its downtown area, and rioters were seen lighting mattresses on fire and setting off fireworks in the streets. Protesters have also set up tents in the park near the federal courthouse and have barricaded streets to create their own autonomous zone, likened to the since-disbanded Capitol Hill Organized Protest in Seattle.
Earlier this month, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security deployed more than a half-dozen law enforcement agencies and departments, with officers from the U.S. Marshals, the Federal Protective Service and U.S. Customs and Border Protection rotating protection services throughout the city in a bid to quell the violence and protect federal property — a move opposed by local politicians.
On Thursday, Wolf also released a timeline showing the havoc caused by what DHS termed “violent anarchists.”
In the last few days alone, the timeline details how the personal information of officers has been released online, while rioters have assaulted law enforcement with hammers, lasers, slingshots and fireworks, while others have been armed with sledgehammers, tasers and “flaming debris.”
My bold on the damages.
Mayor Wheeler seems to be under the impression that he can just ignore the Feds like DHS and the U.S. Marshals.
I have some bad news for that clown.
The Feds have been keeping score and they are done fucking around.
Notice that part there towards the end of the video where two Feds outfitted in Military gear walk up without saying a word and haul that punk off and throw him into a minivan?
I’m thinking that was a very serious message to some of these assholes.
