Skip to comments.Police response to Portland protest (Biden rally) ‘completely unacceptable,' Oregon House Speaker says
Posted on 07/02/2020 4:28:44 PM PDT by Libloather
As Portland protests enter their fifth week Wednesday, the state speaker of the House sent a sharp letter to Mayor Ted Wheeler over police use of force the previous night, saying police were escalating tensions with their tactics.
Oregon House Speaker Tina Kotek, D-Portland, call police actions in her district Tuesday completely unacceptable. Officers used tear gas and other force to disperse protesters near the Portland Police Association headquarters in North Portland.
From the reports Ive read and from what Ive heard from neighbors - counter to what the PPB is officially saying - there was no risk to the public or to officers until the PPB decided to declare an unlawful assembly to permit the use of and deploy crowd control devices, Kotek wrote in the email, which she posted to Facebook.
What needed to be protected last night? An empty office building? Was this need more important than the health of neighbors, of children in a neighborhood, of people returning home from work? The declaration of an unlawful assembly did not seem warranted. The declaration of a riot was an abuse of the statute. Therefore, the ensuing actions by the PPB were unlawful.

Oregon Democrats are in solidarity! Unified, they all have one strong point in common... they are universally wrong on everything, particularly this issue of Law and Order. By stopping the destruction of an unoccupied building, the Police stopped the burning of a dozen more occupied ones! Can anyone doubt this?
All that picture needs is a number at the bottom
“De-fund da po-po. Power to the 57 gender people!”
Is being a lesbian a requirement for public office in Washington?
‘Oregon House Speaker Tina Kotek, Ugly Lesbian-Portland’
Like .2 out of 10?
It’s similar to being Black in the 100m dash.
She must be the “boy”.
Oi...Portland, Oregon is not in Washington!
Is that a woman?
I’m SHOCKED! the Portland popo defended it’s union headquarters? The police commissioner is going to be really PO’d.
Yep, it’s wife is Aimee Wilson.
What are you going to do about it Ms, Kotex?
They always have ‘that look’ !
Great video of cops breaking up a large mob in Seattle in less than a minute.
The Mayor of Seattle who is also a Democratic Party woman was on the side of the mob until they besieged her house one night. Evidently she was red pilled by the experience and gave the cops the green light to end mob rule in Seattle:
Rachel Maddow wannabe.
“Oi...Portland, Oregon is not in Washington! “
Fool. Portland self identifies as being in Washington. It is one of those LGBTQXYZ rights.
Upper Utopia, whatever.
