|Yo, Portland Police! Remember, you gotta do my homework tonight!|
- What kind of people would stay on the police force?
- What kind of people would willingly join it?
- What resident has any faith in their ability to protect him or her?
- What happens if the "protesters" don't allow the fire trucks to pass unhindered? See also: My post on B-17s without fighter escort.
There is a fire near the 800 block of SW 3rd Avenue. We are advising the crowd to get out of the street so @PDXFire can respond. Please stop throwing projectiles at officers who are trying to assist with this operation.— Portland Police (@PortlandPolice) June 16, 2020
Some demonstrators have locked the doors from the outside of the Justice Center and are lighting fires on 2nd Avenue. They are also tampering with the roll up doors of the Justice Center on 2nd Avenue. This is a life safety issue. Remove the items now!— Portland Police (@PortlandPolice) June 17, 2020
Some individuals are tying cables and other items to the doors and fire hydrant. This presents a life safety issue for emergency ingress and egress.— Portland Police (@PortlandPolice) June 17, 2020
The front door to Central Precinct was locked from the outside with the u-lock. It had to be cut off from the outside so those inside could leave. The rope was taken by protesters from the flag pole and tied to the roll-up doors on the Southeast corner of the building. pic.twitter.com/G97woNOh0j— Portland Police (@PortlandPolice) June 17, 2020
Exit Question: Since regaining permanent control of the city from the "protesters" will require a display of superior force, how and when will this happen?
