All fifty officers of Portland’s riot squad resigned after one of their members was indicted for allegedly assaulting a “journalist.” My only comment is, “What took you so long?”
I think the whole Portland police department should simultaneously resign and let Antifa burn the whole stupid city to the ground. The citizens of that city deserve every bad thing that happens to them. I just wish Antifa was armed with nukes.
With the murder rate at a 23 year high and most precincts undermanned the rush for the exits in the Seattle PD is “surprising.” The future of policing in these cities will be fun to watch (if you don’t happen to live there).
The police basically wait for the bullets to stop flying and then call in the ambulance or the morgue wagon and put together the paperwork.
The rich have already flown from these cities to their new perches in more stable communities. But they’ll continue to insist that they’re proud residents of Seattle, Portland, Chicago or New York. I don’t think the cities come back from this one. There isn’t the will. I think we’ve achieved Brazil status. It will be official when the police are replaced by death squads that clear the streets of the rich enclaves of the homeless and criminal elements under the cover of night.
So the elimination of the city’s anti-crime task forces seems to have allowed gangs to start shooting up the inner city of Portland. Who woulda thunk it?
Now they want to spend a little bit of money on a task force and a whole lot of money on a committee to watch over the shoulder of the task force and make sure they don’t hurt the feelings of the gangstas. It’s just too hilarious.
I hope that the gangbangers and Antifa and BLM burn Portland completely down to the ground. If not two stones were left stacked on each other it would make me supremely happy. I would love nothing more than that the voters in Oregon got exactly what they voted for. And while they’re at it I hope they burn down every other liberal city on both coasts and everywhere else. The greatest outcome for all of this is for these imbeciles to get to experience first hand just exactly what happens when you empower a mob. Eventually that mob runs out of your enemies and comes looking for you.
The only disappointment will be when some Mitt Romney clone comes along and helps Portland clean up the mess after the party is over. What would be more appropriate is to just salt the ground and put up a monument as a cautionary reminder about what happens when Democrats are allowed to run things.
Over at the Federalist a Chinese immigrant relates how her Trump hating democrat friends have had enough of the looting and will take Trump if it saves them from the mob.
The “Defund the Police” movement has not only turned more Americans into gun owners and supporters for the Second Amendment, but may prove to be a boon for President Trump’s reelection campaign. Since downtown Oakland saw some of the worst riots and looting in the nation, I recently checked in with a friend who lives there to make sure she and her family are safe.
Like me, she’s an immigrant from China and experienced Chairman Mao Zedong’s “Cultural Revolution” when growing up. Unlike me, she has supported Democrats for years. She loathes everything Trump stands for, from his immigration rhetoric to positions on foreign policy. For the sake of our friendship, we typically avoid discussing domestic politics as well.
This time, however, she went straight to domestic politics. She told me she and her family were safe but the riots and looting in downtown Oakland were terrifying. She was heartbroken to see so many immigrant-owned “mom and pop” stores ransacked or even burned to the ground.
She conveyed that while she wanted to see justice for Floyd, night after night of destruction and lawlessness were just “too much.” They reminded her of China’s “Cultural Revolution” from 1966-1976. She told me: “I didn’t come all this way to America to re-live a ‘Cultural Revolution’ in 2020.” Then she said something I would never have thought she’d say before: “Trump is right. We need law and order.”
What can you say? Stupid Democrats, sure, but even they can see reality when it burns their neighborhood out.
