Police declare riot for second consecutive night Wednesday, disperse crowd using tear gas

https://www.oregonlive.com/portland/2020/08/portland-protests-continue-on-day-70-downtown-throughout-city-live-updates.html

Well there is too much to edit and quote on my cellphone but the rioting in Portland continues . The trouble has moved to police buildings in precincts away from the downtown area.
Rioters continue to provoke a situation by committing acts of vandalism. This time on police stations.

1. I watched it live on the feed last night. No riot.

You are exaggerating.

You are providing misinformation.

What's your agenda?

2. This has been a constant from this poster

Lots of posts about how the protesters are rioters, how they're helping Trump.

9. One of these late night lessons in insanity. No thank. If you incite a riot it becomes a riot.

I can appreciate what the army of yellow clad mothers is doing but there are some instigators in the mix provoking things.

10. Instigators do not equal a riot.

I watched the live feed, in real time. Police pushed hundreds of peaceful protesters up the street, and down the street.

It was ridiculous. The police looked ridiculous.

If there were instigators at the precinct itself, that did not make a RIOT.

The hundreds of people walking in the street, chanting, were not a RIOT.

14. If there were 3,000 like minded protesters behind that fenced off federal building

everynight and a dozen up front throwing bottles, rocks, firework etc at police and trying to pull down the fence, break back into the building, start fires etc, what do expect the police to do ? Invite them in ?
Unless you condone the violence, the police have to react.
They would give fair warning and declare an illegal assembly over the bull horns. Then ask the crowd to disperse and stated that they would use non-lethal derrents if the crowd didn't comply. We know the outcome of that excersize, night after night. The actions of the few ended up impacting everyone in the vicinity.

13. Ten bucks says you fail to see the irony in your having said that.

"there are some instigators in the mix provoking things..."

15. I think that'd be a safe bet

Nothing but "concern", unsolicited "advice", and referring to protesters as "rioters".

Nobody on DU should take this poster's word for anything about what is going on here.

The Oregonian has been doing a fine job: https://www.oregonlive.com/

So has Zane Sparling on Twitter: https://twitter.com/PDXzane

4. Cops declaring a riot doesn't make it a riot. I do not trust a thing the establishment says these

days. However, I do wish that they would move away from government buildings so as to not give the gestapo an excuse to abuse their authority.

8. Protesters spray painting over cameras on a police building, shining lasers at them and trying to

rip one off the building as well as attempts to break a window, pull off plywood etc, serves only one purpose to provoke an altercation.

17. That is what happened in South East Portland last night according to Otegon Live.

I don't hide in my basement but I don't suffers assholes well either. This cycle is going to continue night after night as long as individuals keep picking a fight with the police. That appears to their goal.

11. exactly

But an instigator can damage a police precinct to elicit an excuse to declare a riot.

Their were individuals the spray painted cameras on the pd building, ripped off plywood and smashed windows the lit a fire in front of the doors and then propped what looked like two by fours against the doors in attempt to l keep them from opening. That is a riot and downright violent behavior.
