Unidentified federal agents in camo and rented minivans are grabbing people off Portland's streets

https://theweek.com/speedreads/926070/unidentified-federal-agents-camo-rented-minivans-are-grabbing-people-portlands-streets
"President Trump has sent an unknown number of federal agents to Portland, Oregon, ostensibly to project federal property amid weeks of protests against racism and police brutality. But federal officers "are also detaining people on Portland streets who aren't near federal property, nor is it clear that all of the people being arrested have engaged in criminal activity," OPB reported Thursday evening. One civil rights lawyer, Juan Chavez, described the federal tactics as "like stop and frisk meets Guantanamo Bay" and "more like abduction" than lawful arrest."

5. This opens the door for

right wing militia groups abducting people off the streets. These folks have the kit to look to like real feds without the insignia.
Then Trump secretly funnels money to these groups, and we have the gestapo on the streets of the America!

6. Exactly how much federal property is there in Portland?

I know the Forest Service’s Region 6 headquarters is in Portland, and there’s a very famous federal courthouse...but gee guys, if you were going to pick out a city to test goon squads in under the pretext of protecting federal property, there are cities with much more of it within.

7. The focal point is a federal building that was vandalized on the first night of protesting

Windows were broken, a fire was set in the building. The building has seen been the focal point of the "after hours" protests. The area has been fenced off with police on one side and protestors, some bent on destruction on the other.

11. Warning: This is not normal.

Any student of history will tell you, atrocities are only nipping at the heals of this sort of “law enforcement”. Where there’s smoke...
