    Portland unrest prompts arrests; objects thrown at officers, flag burned: reports

    One detainee reportedly escaped from a police van and ran off

    Dom Calicchio 6 hours ago



    More than a dozen rioters were arrested late Saturday in Portland, Ore., as crowd members threw cans, bottles and other objects at law enforcement officers, authorities said.

    The rioting was underway in the downtown area, with the state’s largest city now seeing more than four months of daily and nightly protests, vandalism and violence.

    Crowd members became “hostile to officers trying to clear the street” for vehicular traffic, prompting the arrests, the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office wrote in Twitter messages.

    At one point in the evening, rioters were seen setting an American flag on fire.

    At another point, a detainee escaped from a police van and ran off, according to a KOIN-TV reporter’s video on Twitter.


    Around 7 p.m. local time, Portland police posted on Twitter their account of confiscating firearms, paintball guns, baseball bats and shields from a vehicle leaving Delta Park.

    “At least one criminal citation was issued,” the tweet said.

    Saturday’s unrest began hours earlier, around noon, with a planned event by the conservative Proud Boys, but an expected crowd of thousands for that rally failed to materialize, with only several hundred showing up, FOX 12 of Oregon reported.

    A day earlier, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown had warned anyone attending the Proud Boys event – whether supporters of the groups or the left-wing counter-protesters who often appear at their events – that they would be “held accountable” if caught “stoking the flames of violence.”

    When the Proud Boys gathered, chairman Enrique Tarrio claimed the group had helped prompt action by Brown and Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler to help discourage violence.

    “I’m actually really happy we forced Kate Brown and Ted Wheeler’s hand into actually doing their job. They haven’t been doing their job for 120 days,” Tarrio said, according to FOX 12. “We’ve seen destruction, mayhem.”


    About 50 Portland police officers had been deputized as federal officers in anticipation of trouble at the Proud Boys event, OregonLive.com reported.

    About 50 Oregon State Police members were federally deputized in July, the report said.

    The designations, in part, would help federal authorities bring federal charges – with potential harsher prison terms -- against any suspects accused of assaulting the officers, according to the report.

    Default George Floyd & the protesting & rioting across the USA!

    Louisville officials have continued to say that the officers who raided Breonna Taylor’s home were not wearing body cameras and thus footage doesn’t exist.

    They’ve been lying. At least one was, as seen in footage of the aftermath, obtained by Vice. There’s lots of footage of the aftermath of the incident, and it’s not great, as it casts doubt on the integrity of the crime scene and investigation.

    Officers appear to break multiple department policies and footage corroborates boyfriend Walker’s statements, that officers threatened to set a dog on him and, when asked what he’d done, Hankison responds: “You’re going to prison, that’s what’s going on. For the rest of your fucking life.”

    It also shows Walker saying Taylor shot at them, which he admitted later he said out of fear of being told he was going to prison and maybe getting a dog set in him.

    Officers from the raid are also seen risking the crime scene, even asking about a particular gun, if they found shell casings, and whether they are “theirs.” At one point, Hankison walks up to a SWAT member, first asks if their camera is on, and the video cuts out. Other officers are visibly uncomfortable with their presence and ask to clear them out.

    “I’ve never seen anything like this,” a former LMPD narcotics officer, who reviewed parts of the footage, told VICE News.

    Well, to add to the above, while AG Cameron said they were certain Walker’s bullet was the one that hit an officer, it turns out those tests were actually inconclusive and it’s just as likely friendly fire.

    The KSP report says, “‘[D]ue to limited markings of comparative value,’ the 9-mm bullet that hit and exited Mattingly was neither ‘identified nor eliminated as having been fired’ from Walker’s gun.”

    Cameron said Officer Hankison was eliminated because all the officers were carrying .40 caliber guns.

    But it turns out the report says Hankison was issued a 9-mm weapon as well. Walker admitted to firing a warning shot. But Hankison’s charges are because he just started firing with recklessness, including into other apartments. So who hit the other officer? The AG says it was Walker, but the truth seems to be we don’t know.

    There is an FBI test and we don’t know the results, and there is an assumption they didn’t test Hankison’s 9 since the claim is the officers weren’t carrying one.

    Yeah, I saw this story. But Walker still did fire a shot in the direction of the officers.

    But the officers were firing wildly and there might as well have been friendly fire. What a clusterfuck of a situation.

    Again, not saying Walker didn’t fire first. He admits to it, though he calls it a warning shot.

    That doesn’t take away from the fact that the integrity of the investigation and crime scene are now in question, the AG lied about body cameras, the AG lied about being positive the bullet that hit an officer was from Walker (even if the FBI report says it was from him, it’s still inconclusive), meaning the integrity of the AG himself is in question.

    Breonna Taylor caught America’s interest, but there is a laundry list of these kinds of raids gone bad, from innocents injured, maimed, and killed, cops shot and injured and killed, babies maimed. You’d freak America out if you just limited it to the mishaps involving flashbang grenades in no knock raids, and you could do it before getting to the stories about a baby burned and ribs exposed or serving the warrant at the wrong place and burning a man alive.

    The evidence Taylor was an accomplice is one package delivered to her place that police say USPS said was suspicious (USPS denies), and her ex saying once she handles his money after prosecutors offered him way less jail time if he implicated her (he didn’t). When getting the warrant, they didn’t tell the judge there’s a possible innocent explanation for him having used to be there a lot and once pick up a package—that they were lovers.

    The situation never should have never happened. The officers did what they should except the guy firing every which direction, so this isn’t about them. It’s about unnecessarily breaking down peoples doors in the middle of the night without warning.

    Most rock stars from back in the day were sexual predators by today's standards.

    Jimmy Page, Ted Nugent, Steven Tyler, David Bowie, the list is almost endless of older rock stars banging young to very young teenage girls.

    Default George Floyd & the protesting & rioting across the USA!

    A grand juror in the Breonna Taylor case has filed a motion for the grand jury to be able to publicly speak about details in the case due to the public statements the AG made vs, presumably, what the grand jury actually saw.

    The motion seems to indicate discrepancies between his public statements and what the jury saw.

    It also seems to indicate that the AG, as the prosecutor can do in a grand jury, only had the one witness who eventually changed his story to say he heard police testify and not the dozen others.

    Because maybe the dozen others were not credible.

    Remember the Martin case? They had a bunch of people who claimed to be witnesses too. Not uncommon. Afterwards they had a few jurors speak publicly. They had no concept of what the law was or how the system worked.

    But, we’ll see

    Honest question.

    Just a few years ago, this PD conducted several dozen raids with a criminologist who rode along and later reported the knock and announce raids didn’t differ from no knocks because they timed the announcement to the battering ram. (This was what they did with someone watching.)

    A dozen people say they didn’t hear it.

    The guy who says he did hear it changed his story after police called him back twice.

    Everything about what Walker did indicates he had no idea what was happening.

    It was a no knock warrant.

    What am I missing where you are so convinced they made a clear announcement that no one could have missed?
