We live in interesting times

From the Portland Oregon area:

The sheriffs of Clackamas and Washington County say they will not send staff to help with protests in Portland after Oregon Governor Kate Brown unveiled a plan to address the violence at protests.

The plan called on several local law enforcement agencies to help, including the sheriff’s offices of Washington and Clackamas counties.

Clackamas Co. Sheriff Craig Roberts said the governor didn’t approach his office before rolling out the plan, intended to address the violence and arson while also protecting free speech.

“Increasing law enforcement resources in Portland will not solve the nightly violence and now, murder,” the sheriff said. “The only way to make Portland safe again, is to support a policy that holds offenders accountable for their destruction and violence.”

The adults in the house just told the teenagers who deliberately crapped in their own beds, then told their parents to clean up the mess, to clean up it up themselves.

This is will be encouragement to the terrorists and discouragement to the Portland police. By now those polices officers must be ready to call it quits or to call in the M60’s, M240’s, bucket loaders, and the dump trucks.

    • I thought about them and as well as M242’s. But I figured Portland police wouldn’t be likely to have those on call.

  1. Ooooh! Ooooh! Mr. Kotter, pick me, pick me! I know how to run an M60 AND a front end loader. Can I go? (Actually, I think I’d go with an M134 or M61 ON the front end loader, aka “shoot ‘n’ scoop” but that’s just me….).

  2. Those counties already have a policy of not sending deputies to help in portland. It seems that portland has a habit of throwing neighboring agencies under the bus when something goes south.
