Drazan Responds to Violence
“No more violence.”

State Representative Christine Drazan, the House Republican leader, issued a statement on the recent violence in Portland.

"My condolences to the family of the man who was shot, in what appears to be a politically motivated killing, last night in Portland. This has to stop.

"All summer, night after night, Portland has been taken hostage by extremists. Democrat leaders have declined to prosecute the violent, instead giving them refuge and protection, encouragement and a safe haven to vandalize and intimidate -- finally resulting in last night's senseless murder.

"It should not be the responsibility of the lawful to stay out of the reach of the lawless because the city of Portland and the State of Oregon are run by political sympathizers instead of public leaders. Murder does not justify more killing. We are not at war with each other. This shooting was a criminal act, a political execution, that must mark the end of state sanctioned political violence in the streets of Portland.

"No more violence. Restore safe streets and law-abiding free expression for all now."
