Lawlessness and anarchy come at great expense and great risk to the future of our community. It’s time to push back harder against those who are set on destroying our community, and take more risks fighting lawlessness.
These people need to hear, and to understand, the social and human consequences of their irresponsible actions. All of them should be requires to engage in public services like litter pick-up and graffiti abatement.

Portland Mayor Committed to End Violence by ‘Antifa Radicals’ After New Year’s Eve Riot
[This is after:
At least two Molotov cocktail-style firebombs and large fireworks were hurled and launched at riot police, the Mark O. Hatfield Federal Courthouse, and the Multnomah County Justice Center, police and video footage confirm.
The mayor it going to get tough on these thugs by having them talk to some of the victims, pick up litter, and clean up graffiti. Yeah. That would really show them he means business.
I think this is further encouragement of their action. And I find it difficult to believe Wheeler isn’t actually on the side of Antifa.
The person, and anyone assisting them, that threw the first Molotov cocktail at the cops should have hit the street with a bullet in their brain before the Molotov cocktail landed. Portland police has snipers more than capable of doing this. I know because some of them have been to Boomershoot several times.
Throwing those sort of devices was the use of deadly force and should have been treated as such.—Joe]
