posted by Hannity Staff - 6.17.20

The Portland Police Department faced a growing backlash Wednesday after they demanded rioters “remove the items now” on social media instead of dispatching officers to handle the dangerous situation.

“Some demonstrators have locked the doors from the outside of the Justice Center and are lighting fires on 2nd Avenue. They are also tampering with the roll up doors of the Justice Center on 2nd Avenue. This is a life safety issue. Remove the items now!” posted the Department at 2:14AM.

The Portland Police Department urged residents to flee sections of the city late Monday night; telling people “fires have been lit, a store was looted, leave the area, it is not safe.”

“A group continues to stay downtown in the streets. One officer was injured after being hit in the head with a large rock. Ofc. transported to hospital. Fires have been lit. A store was looted. Arrests are being made. Leave the area, it is not safe,” posted the Department on social media.

“The crowd is now in the streets near the Pearl District. Traffic may be impacted in the area,” adds the Portland Police.

PORTLAND CRISIS: City Deploys ‘Mobile Hygiene Stations’ to Homeless Encampments, Tent Cities

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.24.19

Portland officials continued their struggle with the region’s spiraling homeless crisis this week; deploying “mobile hygiene stations” and temporary toilets to tent cities and illegal encampments.

“As the homeless crisis continues to simmer in Oregon’s largest city, local officials working with nonprofit groups have deployed mobile hygiene stations in a bid to clean up some of the largest encampments,” reports Fox News. “Portland, with a metropolitan area of about 2.4 million people, has joined West Coast cities such as Los Angeles and San Francisco in struggling with a growing homeless crisis that ranks among the worst in the country.”

 

Portland has the fourth highest number of transient people in the United States when adjusted for total population; double the national average.

These are campsites that for a very long time have been generating concerns and safety issues,” Denis Theiault, a spokesman for the Joint Office for Homeless Services, told FOX12 on Tuesday. “Not just public safety issues but health and safety issues for the folks who are camping there as well as the folks who are near those sites.”
