Protesters in Portland threw rocks and fire bombs at police who in turn used tear gas on Saturday night and at least one person was injured, on the 100th day of demonstrations in the Oregon city against racism and police brutality.
Police described what they called tumultuous and violent conduct by protesters on the citys Southeast Stark Street.
"Fire bombs were thrown at officers, injuring at least one community member", police said on Twitter while re-tweeting a video posted by a New York Times reporter showing fire bombs being thrown and a protester running with his legs on fire.
Police used tear gas to disperse the gathering, the Oregonian newspaper reported, estimating the number of protesters at around 400.

"Portland Police encourage people to stay off MAX tracks for their own safety and to put back all of the rocks they are picking up from the MAX tracks. People in this crowd have repeatedly thrown rocks at vehicles and police throughout the night."
"Portland Police are giving repeated announcements for people who are continuing to block SE Stark near Ventura Park to disperse and get out of the street."
"Fire bombs were thrown at officers, injuring at least one community member. Police are trying to restore peace and order for the safety of this neighborhood."
"Police are making repeated announcements. This remains a riot. Members of the group have thrown Molotov cocktails injuring at least one community member. Failure to disperse may result in arrest citation crowd control agents including tear gas and/or impact weapons."
Fire bombs should begat live rounds.
What evidence do you have that the Portland cops actually have live rounds?

There. Fixed it.
Still trying to pretend firebombs and large rocks are “mostly peaceful”. SMH. If the cops were allowed to SHOOT them, the next night would be all peaceful. The mayor and DA allow the violence to happen.

Pffffft! Reuters trying to make you think these are equal opportunity riots.
Those Nikes will never be the same.

Roll, Dick, roll!!
Who limited it to cops?
OK, I’ll accept the thought except that conservatives are apathetic and will not go out in public and voice their disdain for the Ameritrash looting and burning America.
They keep their weapons at home incase someone bad comes by
