CAN’T MAKE THIS UP: Portland Mayor Asks for $2 MILLION to REFUND Police as Crime Surges

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.15.21

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler -who was himself tear-gassed during Antifa riots- is requesting $2 million to help the police department crack down on violent crime after shootings, burglaries, and car theft soared across the city.

“Wheeler said on Thursday that he wants a $2 million fund in order to help police be more active on the streets after Portland has already seen its 20th homicide of the year,” reports The Hill.

“The money would go towards a new uniformed team made up of two sergeants and 12 police officers along with the potential for retired police offers to be rehired on a temporary basis to help the new team,” adds the website.

PORTLAND SPIRALS: Far-Left Mayor Blames ‘FEDERAL TROOPS’ for Violence, Vandalism in His City

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.20.20

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler bizarrely blamed “Federal Troops” for the current violence sweeping his city; saying their “tactics” are “making the situation much more dangerous” for local residents.

“Before the Federal Troops got here, violence was way down, vandalism was way down… The energy was coming out of the demonstrations. What happened is the troops came in, they used their Unconstitutional tactics, they injured non-violent demonstrators, and the whole thing blew up again,” said Wheeler.

 

“The reason we want those Federal Troops out of our city is that they are making the situation much more dangerous,” he added.  “I’m worried that one of our local law enforcement officers is going to get killed because of the tactics they’re engaged in.”

“Some of the items thrown at officers include paint, ball bearings, and glass bottles, which are all criminal acts,” adds the Portland PD.
