Evil and idiocy win in Portland

Shit hole. Handed over to the indolent evil

Who's going to pay? Liberals say if you give the "Rona" you pay what about other damages?

I am suspecting they might run off the corporate tax base which they plan to use to pay for everything.

Who are the perps?
For sure, you know they're white.
Portland cops whining. Those damn police unions want free rein or they'll choose not to do their job - protect and serve. That's exactly what they did here.
Cops have gone easy on white perps like Proud Boys, etc,, so I'm guessing those are the perps.
So like you?

Companion story - I don't know what color all of them were, but they made their politics pretty clear:

"This is the Portland Police Bureau. Stop throwing things at officers," blasted the command from the Portland, Oregon, police bureau's "LRAD" sound system in downtown Portland earlier this month. "If it continues, this event will be declared a civil disturbance."

In response, the crowd of several hundred left-wing protesters—many of them masked—laughed and chanted, "ACAB! All cops are bastards!" A group of them continued to hurl projectiles like rocks, concrete and food at police. Some vehicles driving by had incendiary devices thrown at them. A nearby war memorial was vandalized with antifa symbols and messages urging people to "kill cops." Videographers at the scene were attacked and chased away for filming.

Police made only three arrests.

The protest by antifa in Portland on Feb. 8, organized to counter alleged Ku Klux Klan members who never showed up, received little media attention. And why should it? In a city where riots have become a banality, citizens and the local media have understandably become numb. But outsiders, particularly conservatives, responded in disbelief and anger online that a police department in a major American city seemingly permits left-wing political violence to become routine.



Why Portland Police Stand By Passively When Leftists Riot (newsweek.com)


Obviously, this is what the left wants, no?

It causes police to be spectators to crimes. Directly and demonstrably so.

It stands to reason that the evil among us favor such things.
Not really. The fact that police *choose* to protest restrictions on *unreasonable* initiation of force by refusing to do their jobs just says that they are cowardly punks who like to pick on the defenseless.

In other words, it lets liberal vandals run wild to burn and destroy with no recourse.
Nope. Police still have every legal power to arrest vandals. What they cannot do is ndiscrimiately attack crowds of nonviolent protesters even if a few among them are committing nonviolent crimes.

So you accept the proposition that private property (overwhelmingly originally accumulated as a result of pillage and violent exploitation) does not represent a moral right to set the terms of labor for producers?

A moral obligation...but not a right in the absolute

That there were/are perps is the singular standard that should be required, irrespective of mealymouthed marxist striation. White, brown, rich, poor - completely irrelevant. Proud Boys or Antifa - completely irrelevant.

Cops are now legislatively prevented from intervening unless they can prove a very clear danger of out of control, wanton mass public danger. Oregon’s congress has literally taken this out of police hands - and business people and bystanders alike are now thrown to the wolves. It is evil - and it is direct dereliction of duty. Government now shirks it’s legitimate scope in favor of the illegitimate.

A better, more compelling, MORE FRUITFUL impetus for carrying a weapon I’ve never seen.

Congrats, lefty. Mission accomplished. Even those formerly on the fence are now all-in on carrying. Welcome aboard, newbies. Taking personal responsibility for one’s safety is the right way to go. :)

Well done, overreaching leftists. You’ve done it again.
Gee, why didn't the cops just go and arrest a few?

False. As store owners continue to victimized, your komrades continue to assail, vandalize, and torch. Lefties have enshrined such into law.

Not allowed to take preemptive action thanks to Democrats who favor criminals over the lawful, illegal aliens over citizens. The Democrats have CODIFIED the above.

Sad stuff.
A couple of cops chasing after and arresting 1 or 2 vandals is not taking preemptive action. It's doing their job.

You anti-police, anti-citizen Democrats codified legislation preventing preemption of Crime in process. This is because dirtbags = the Democrat base. You’ve wrecked so many cities. Now, it was Portland’s turn (and Oregon itself).

Not my comrades. If anything they are probably organized Crime like the looters in Chicago. Which would explain the police turning the other way when there is NO mandate for them to do so.

The moral obligation is to return the looted wealth to the masses so that we can work out our own destiny without their parasitism holding us back.
No. Because by and large it's not looted.

They can work it out by getting up and doing and not blaming others
