“The city council are raging idiots, in addition to being stupid. Additionally, the mayor and council ignore actual facts on crime and policing in favor of radical leftist and anarchist fantasy.”
The radical left has been rioting in Portland, Oregon on a nearly nightly basis since last spring. Now some police officers in the city are heading for the exits.
Who can blame them?
Police in Portland get little to no support from the mayor’s office and the city’s prosecutors release almost anyone who is arrested for rioting overnight.
Would you stay?

Portland police look for exit, say they’re ‘burned out’: report
Late last year, Portland’s police department said it received an “unprecedented” number of officers leaving their jobs midcareer to take lower-paying jobs elsewhere — and on Sunday the city’s main newspaper published an article offering a glimpse into the reasons why many decided to leave.
The Oregonian reported that a total of 115 officers have left the department since July 1, 2020, representing “one of the biggest waves of departures in recent memory.”
The paper said it reviewed 31 exit interview statements from these officers that showed a certain level of disillusion with the job. A retiring detective reportedly wrote in one that the community showed officers “zero support.”
“The city council are raging idiots, in addition to being stupid. Additionally, the mayor and council ignore actual facts on crime and policing in favor of radical leftist and anarchist fantasy. What’s worse is ppb command (lt. and above) is arrogantly incompetent and cowardly.”
The police union building in the city was just attacked. Again, this has been going on for months.

Crowd tags Portland police union building with graffiti and sets debris ablaze
Dozens of people gathered outside of a Portland law enforcement union building, lit a fire, and vandalized the building early Sunday morning.
Around 40 demonstrators placed sticks and twigs near the Portland Police Association headquarters and set it ablaze, authorities said. The structure was tagged with the phrases “Land Back,” “F— 12,” and “ACAB,” which stands for “all cops are b——-,” footage taken throughout the unruly night revealed.
Officers from three different divisions arrived at the scene, and the local fire department was called to extinguish the flames. Police said some of the demonstrators were “periodically blocking vehicle traffic” during the unrest.

Conservative commentator John Cardillo, who is former NYPD, recently spoke to Buck Sexton about this and laid blame at the feet of Democrats who he suggests have become pro-criminal.
If a foreign gang of thugs invaded Portland and attempted to burn and destroy on a nightly basis, would the city put up with it?DONATE
