Portland mayor exposed to pepper spray after speaking with protesters

America is so far away from the country it’s supposed to be. We all believe it to be the greatest but the health care system is failing, education seems to be just getting worst, and police are able to buy tanks and military gear and continue to use deadly force on citizens while simultaneously under policing when it comes to violent crimes. It’s almost like the system is meant to punish us and not protect us. If this was any other country, we’d see the injustice. We’re blinded by our patriotism. This has been going on for way too long and I’m not even sure which politicians to trust anymore. It seems like theyre all on the same side.
