Anarchy Breaks Out in Portland, With the Mayor’s Blessing: A vicious mob targeted the ICE office and even a food cart. The police followed orders to do nothing:
Where were the police? Ordered away by Democratic Mayor Ted Wheeler, who doubles as police commissioner. “I do not want the @PortlandPolice to be engaged or sucked into a conflict, particularly from a federal agency that I believe is on the wrong track,” he tweeted. “If [ICE is] looking for a bailout from this mayor, they are looking in the wrong place.” ...
“I join those outraged by ICE actions separating parents from their children, and support peaceful protest to give voice to our collective moral conscience.”
The Hakes family, which owns the Happy Camper food cart across the street from ICE’s office, responded to the statement with incredulity. The mob “terrorized our family” and forced the business to close, Julie Hakes told me.
