Portland police detain rioters caught smashing windows; 13 charged

About 100 protesters were detained in Portland, Oregon, on Friday night. Police said the detention came minutes after the group began marching in the street and some began breaking windows. Officers ’created a perimeter around the group’ during which some people on the outside threw rocks and cans of beer at officers, who used pepper spray. Police charged 13 people.

Oh dang, Trump isn't president any more... So these "protesters" can't rely on the Dem. Prosecutors dropping the charges or Kamala raising bail money for them any more.

I don't even know why they bother. Liberal nutcase judges will let them off no consequences. Mayor loves it. Cops should just pick a different line of work or go to a different precinct. We can wall off Portland and let all the various autonomous zones have it. Toss em in and don't look back. Definitely Noone is allowed out of the Portland walled of zone

And?. ... Arresting them is useless. They get immediately bailed out and the prosecutor refuses to prosecute them. It's futile.

About time. The liberal city government has apparently, slowly, come to understand that nothing appeases rioters, that appeasement only encourages further, escalating atrocities.

Protesting is one of the most American freedoms we have, and the overwhelmingly peaceful crowd ended with the police surrounding and detaining all of them. (Portlander here, I wasnt there that night but I have two friends who were) the news loves to blow up these little marches that usually amount to nothing. But really it's the same thing with cops, a few bad apples makes the whole barrel bad. You have to throw the bad ones out before they infect the others, otherwise it spreads.

They must be protesting that the Floyd family only got 27 million in the settlement. Seems legit.
