Oregon governor says US agents will start leaving Portland

https://apnews.com/ebe8e681d99c3c790ee66e8089e67fdf
"PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Federal agents who have clashed with protesters in Portland, Oregon, will begin a “phased withdrawal” from Oregon’s largest city, Gov. Kate Brown said Wednesday.

Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said in a statement the plan negotiated with Brown over the last 24 hours includes a “robust presence” of Oregon State Police in downtown Portland.

“State and local law enforcement will begin securing properties and streets, especially those surrounding federal properties, that have been under nightly attack for the past two months,” Wolf said.

The agents will begin leaving the city’s downtown area on Thursday, Brown said."

2. Scuttling off with their tails between their legs.

That was a sorry-ass attempt at intimidation.

4. I hope protesters can 'police' themselves, watch out for those who are trying to stir up the crowd's

emotions and cause harm to all and their causes. If the federals don't leave, then the governor should call in Oregon's national guard, as a last resort. Notice I am talking about protesters that are out for themselves only and trying to stir up emotions when I mean police themselves. They have been those 'fake' protesters undercover, hiding their IDs, sneaking in and trying to cause mayhem and cause property damage. I hope that the legitimate protesters have been protecting themselves by setting up investigative entities to retrieve videos/witnesses of these 'rogue' protesters caught in the act of causing property damage, etc. and going after these thugs, catching them, charging them w/ a crime, prosecuting them, and then if guilty, convict them and sentence them.
