Ian Miles Cheong who posted the video said “I don’t know what burning the Bible has to do with protesting against police brutality.
Do not be under the illusion that these protests and riots are anything but an attempt to dismantle all of Western Civilization and upend centuries of tradition and freedom of religion.”
It seems obvious that the intent of creating this uproar and unrest in Portland is not yet clear at the moment.
According to Trevor Hughes, a reporter working with USATODAY.COM said
“The thing to bear in mind is that, especially for this most immediate period of time, the protest is only immediately surrounding the federal courthouse,” Hughes said. “And so it wasn’t like people were wandering the streets setting buildings on fire. This was very, very limited to a couple of blocks right around the courthouse.”
The protests took a new level after President Donald Trump has deployed more than 100 federal law enforcement agents to Portland, saying the agents were there to protect federal property. Local officials and critics accused the president of creating more conflict during nationwide protests over racial injustice and police brutality against Black Americans. On Wednesday, local and federal officials announced an agreement to begin withdrawing the federal agents.
When asked if the protests where mostly peaceful or Were violent?
Both, Hughes said. … “You had people showing up with baseball bats. We had people try to tear down the security fence around the courthouse. They tore the security cameras off the buildings. They tried to break the windows. When law enforcement responded with the tear gas, for instance, the crowd would pick up those tear gas canisters and throw them back at the police officers.”
But, he said, “The vast majority of people there were being peaceful, exercising their constitutional rights in a very polite way. But those large crowds allowed a small number of people the cover necessary to shoot fireworks from the darkness, to throw glass bottles.”
And the response? Hughes only saw tear gas and pepper spray deployed, but others reported less-lethal ammunition such as rubber bullets being used.
How did it get so heated?
Schnell said protesting is part of Portland. “One thing about this city is that we love to protest and in a lot of ways, I think we’re pretty angsty. If you live here, it’s easy to let the protesting kind of fade into the background. We’re always protesting something. But when the feds showed up, suddenly it renewed people’s energy.
