PORTLAND CHAOS: Rioters Use Bike Locks to Trap Police Inside Precinct, Dept Asks for Help on Twitter

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.17.20

Rioters in Portland, Oregon used rope and a bicycle lock to trap officers inside a local police station; leaving the abandoned cops to ask for help on social media while violence swirled outside.

 

“Locking the Justice Center from the outside presented serious life safety concerns for the adults in custody and employees inside the building. The demonstrators have moved away from the building and the doors are re-opened,” posted the Department on social media.

“The front door to Central Precinct was locked from the outside with the u-lock,” another tweet read. “It had to be cut off from the outside so those inside could leave. The rope was taken by protesters from the flagpole and tied to the roll-up doors on the Southeast corner of the building.”

ANARCHY IN OREGON: Antifa Attacks Rock Portland, Riot Police Dispatched

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.15.18

Riot police were dispatched Saturday night after a march for “Law and Order” turned violent on the streets of Portland Oregon; descending into an all-out brawl after “rival political factions” attacked each other.

“Members of the right-wing group Patriot Prayer and their black-clad adversaries, known as antifa, used bear spray, bare fists and batons to thrash each other outside Kelly’s Olympian, a popular bar on Southwest Washington Street,” writes the Oregonian.

“The melee, which lasted more than a minute, ended when riot cops rushed in and fired pepper balls at the street fighters,” adds the article.

The stunning violence comes just days after leading Democrats -including former Attorney General Eric Holder and Hillary Clinton- fired-off heated rhetoric that urged their supporters to ramp-up confrontations with Republican voters and politicians.

“When they go low, we kick them!” yelled Holder at a recent speaking event.

“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” said Clinton during an interview with CNN.
