Three people were arrested Saturday after a demonstration in downtown Portland, Ore., turned "violent" and a war memorial was vandalized, according to officials.
The Portland Police Bureau said the protesters gathered to counter a demonstration outside the Multnomah County Courthouse that was abruptly canceled.
Police did not provide details about the previously planned demonstration, but Oregon Live reported it was rumored to be a Ku Klux Klan white supremacy rally at a downtown park. Counter-protesters, including members of Antifa, still showed up even though police said the original event was scrapped.
"While the rally was being held and was peaceful, Portland Police officers stayed away," the police bureau said. "However, some people in the group began acting in a violent, threatening manner against attendees who were legally capturing photos and videos."

There ain’t crap peaceful about Antifa and We the People will deal with them in the future.
Maybe if we someday have a Presidency of someone like Donald J. Trump, Antifa could be treated like the now mostly defunct KKK or Neo-Nazis are.
When they could not find their intended targets, they started in on the Police. The Police really don't like that sort of thing, and responded as one might expect them to do when faced with law-breakers.
These jerks are not “anti-facist”. They are Black Bloc anarcbists.
Communist agitators. Nothing less. Nothing more.
Why did Fox “News” deem it necessary to place the word “violent” in quotes? That is usually meant to signify some sort of question about the original characterization of something, isn’t it? Either the protest was violent, or it was not; questions need not be asked and it should be reported as such, right?
Antifa demonstration turns violent.
Who would’ve guessed...
AntiFA = Anti First Amendment.
Sure, because Presidents have unlimited power and no accountability.
Did the FBI members in the KKK propose having an event that Auntie Fascists could counter?
How many fascist Live in Portland?
“When they could not find their intended targets, they started in on the Police. The Police really don’t like that sort of thing, and responded as one might expect them to do when faced with law-breakers.”
All depends on who’s ox is getting gored. Portland police usually just observe when AntiFa runs wild but I guess they will protect themselves.
I guess Fox "News" didn't think these were "violent."
I’m surprised the cops weren’t ordered to help deface the memorial. It’s Portland after all.
Is that a trick question?
