I dont want to see the regulated but they are being used to damage the eyes of LE officers. The problem is possession of them isn’t illegal in most places, and finding the person who used one on somebody else is very difficult.

Somebody who shines one of those things at me is going to go to the hospital. Right now that’s the only deterrent.

You’re right. I should have said “Brute Squad.” There are thugs in every large city.

So now you're saying that even after the Feds left town, the peaceful protests really aren't all that peaceful after all?

Sat night:
Riot declared as protesters set fire to Portland police union offices, authorities say

PORTLAND, Ore. – A fire inside a police union building led authorities in Portland, Oregon, to declare a riot and force protesters away from the offices as violent demonstrations continue in the city that had hoped for calm after federal agents withdrew more than a week ago.

A group of demonstrators broke into the Portland Police Association building, set the fire and were adding to it when officers made the riot declaration late Saturday, police tweeted. Video shot by a journalist shows smoke and flames rising from inside the building.

Several hundred people had gathered outside the offices, which are located about 5 miles north of the federal courthouse that had been the target of nightly violence earlier this summer. The Portland Police Association is a labor union that represents members of the Portland Police Bureau.

Live video had shown multiple dumpster fires had been set near the building, less than half an hour after police tweeted that “criminal activities including, but not limited to, vandalism, unlawful entry to the building, or fire starting,” could be subject to arrest, the use of tear gas and/or crowd-control munitions.

Once the riot was declared – just after 11:30 p.m. – officers formed a line and used flash bangs and smoke canisters to force the crowd away from the area.

Rallies were also held earlier in the afternoon and evening throughout the city, including at Peninsula, Laurelhurst and Berrydale parks, local media reported....

Wait, how can this be? I thought the rioting was only because of the feds, who left over a week ago? :?

So looting and destruction of property are inevitable? :?

Kalm, you might want to rethink your statement above and how it reads from a business owner, who's lively hood has been destroyed and they have no recourse to rebuild. Their life and love of their business has just been taken away by individuals that believe destruction will get their point across. Talking to them about it, I can guarantee it is not a ho-hum matter.
I didn’t say it was a ho-hummer, unsympathetic, or that I wouldn’t be pissed of in their shoes.
My apologies, Kalm. I took your last paragraph in the wrong way. :thumb:

Everybody on the schadenfreude express!


https://hotair.com/archives/john-s-2/20 ... new-trend/

I’m think this might be like the Tea Party and will disappear when there’s a Dem in the White House

But God I hope not... I hope these municipal leaders have to quit and move away

BTW... I have an answer for these asshole children- just shoot them with pepper balls... they’re nonlethal. These shits throw piss and paint? Throw it back at em. Then when they retaliate with something stronger (and they will) then you can come out with old smokey

Has anyone considered these folks just like to watch stuff catch on fire or blow up? Every Twitter thing I see just has a bunch of people hanging around and tossing an incendiary every now and then and filming it. I think they're just fireworks junkies.

They are called pyromaniacs and probably should take this test.

#4 and 6 are probably particular areas of concern.... :coffee:

If you're calling me an assclown you should look in the mirror. I didn't blame the rioting on the federal presence, I said it aggravated the situation.

The riots themselves aren't Trump's fault but he and the big bad Wolf did throw gasoline on the fire in order to increase his chances of reelection.

Not to mention changing the subject to brave policemen protecting us from anarchy rather than thug cops executing handcuffed suspects in the middle of the street in broad daylight. :coffee:

Yup, having Federal personnel defending the Federal Courthouse from being razed by the Antifa/BLM rioters definitely aggravated the situation. :lol: :dunce:

When the average number of protesters/rioters went from 100 before the Feds arrival to 1,000 after I think it's fair to argue that they aggravated the situation. Trumpkins and Wolfy were more interested in boosting his reelection efforts than protecting a courthouse or American lives.

I'm not defending the rioters, the mayor, governor and others dropped the ball by neutering the police response.

People should just think of protecting Federal property like Lincoln resupplying the US garrison at Fort Sumter then they’ll feel better
