“Riot” Declared After Protesters Set Fire To Portland Police Association Building

On Tuesday night (the second consecutive night), Portland Police declared a “riot” after a sizeable crowd set fire to the entrance of the Portland Police Association (PPA) building on North Lombard. For the last several days, what has likely been “far-left Antifa” has been wreaking havoc around the metro area. 

Portland Police said last night’s chaotic scene involved protesters “lighting a fire behind the PPA office possibly in a garbage can. People are shooting fireworks toward the building.”

The police said, “people appear to be using accelerants on a door to ignite a fire which is growing larger.” They’re referring to the PPA entrance door. 

At least “100 people” were responsible for last night’s chaos. Others have said there were more than 200 protesters. Police eventually repelled the protesters from the PPA building to extinguish flames. 

On Monday night, hundreds of protesters gathered in the metro area in opposition to the police killing of Daunte Wright, a 20-year-old who was shot and killed during a traffic stop on Sunday afternoon in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota. Some protesters attacked the Penumbra Kelly Building in east Portland. Similar demonstrations were held across the country. 

Over the weekend, protesters attempted to burn down a Portland ICE facility. 

… and this is not the first time Antifa protesters attacked an ICE building in Portland. In late January, dozens of protesters hurled projectiles and mortar explosives at federal police officers. 

This whole movement to defund police pushes America deeper into a violent mess that could one day be equivalent to a third-world country unless law and order are immediately restored. 

Just take a look at what happened outside the Brooklyn Center Police Department last night. 

Forget President Biden’s “unity” call, there’s an American Spring of political activism underway.
