Antifa smashes Portland: the police are inactive
About 100 Protestants, blocking the streets and shouting loud slogans into the microphone, attack old people and smash cars. This protest was directed against the police, apparently because of this, the cops decided not to intervene, even when several people were seriously injured.
The conflict broke out due to the fact that on September 30, two policemen during a patrol shot 27-year-old Patrick Kimmons, a convicted criminal who fatally wounded two people in the parking lot and did not fulfill the police’s demand to surrender, after which ten times were shot at him.
“We’re not here to riot. We’re here for justice,” Charles Kimmons, a family member, told The Oregonian/Oregon Live at the rally. “We need to fight this all the way to the end. These cops need to be locked up.”
Eyewitnesses claim that all the protesters shouted insults not only to the police, but also to civilians and the elderly. So one driver was attacked because of the license plate, as he was from North Carolina, he was credited with racism and smashed the car.
“Go back to North Carolina! We don’t need your KKK,” one person yells, apparently referencing the man's license plate and connecting him to racism because he lives in one of the Carolinas.
Later, an angry mob attacked an elderly woman who was hampered by shouts from a megaphone. The old woman asked not to use the megaphone near her house. The police saw the whole conflict, but did not intervene. Even after shouts about the attacks and calls for help. Several people surrounded the victim and loudly shouted insults.
“Old a-- lady, nobody is listening to you,” the person with the megaphone says. She then comes out from near the door of the building and inexplicably claims to be a victim in the situation, shouting: “Help officer! I’m being attacked!”
The next victim was the writer Andy Ngo. He covered protests against the male chauvinist group Proud Boys, which is known for street fighting, in the city of Oregon.
“I just got beat up by the crowd,” Mr Ngo said. “I was in the middle of the street and they stole my GoPro and punched me several times in my face and my head. I’m bleeding.”
According to preliminary data, 3 people were arrested for assault, harassment and hooliganism. During the protests, more than 10 people were injured of varying severity, three of them police officers and three more were taken to hospital with injuries using weapons.
