Anti-police protesters in Portland, Oregon toppled a statue of George Washington overnight Thursday just days after removing a memorial to Thomas Jefferson; raising more questions over safety and security across the city.

Protesters in Portland toppled a memorial honoring Founding Father and author of the Declaration of Independence Thomas Jefferson; toppling the monument and smashing the statue with a hammer as onlookers cheered.

“Thomas Jefferson Statue toppled in Portland,” posted the Daily Caller on social media.

Seattle’s embattled Police Chief had an “epiphany” over the weekend after attending George Floyd protests; saying “policing will never be the same.”

“I was looking at the 60,000 people that were there, signs saying, you know, defund the police, stop police brutality, you know, no qualified immunity. And there were thousands of people carrying those particular signs,” said Chief Carmen Best.

“And I just realized it was a moment, an epiphany, that this is a pivotal moment in history. We are going to move in a different direction and policing will never be the same as it was before,” she added.

“We need to re-imagine and re-figure out how we’re going to move forward as a country and as an organization to make things better for everybody,” she said during the interview with “Face the Nation.”
