It seems that nightly destruction and vandalism are the new normal for Portland, Oregon these days. Lawlessness abounds in Oregon's largest city and it has not been addressed by state or local elected leaders. Democratic Governor Kate Brown has notoriously been unwilling
to address the radical leftist violence occurring routinely in Portland.
These incidents stemming originally from supposed racial justice protests have lost the focus that some organizing groups wished to have. Marxist activists and AntiFa groups have continued to blur the message of racial justice , and the efforts have now morphed most entirely into an onslaught of destruction in the region. Given that the Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt has pledged to not prosecute many crimes occurring, it comes as no surprise to many Oregonians that the violence and destruction is only getting worse, as we are now past the presidential election and in the holidays of 2020.
Criminals are targeting small businesses now in the city. It is somewhat unclear to what degree the groups have originated from the protests, or if some of these latest riotous groups are committing the crimes just because they know they will most likely get away with it.
