Portland police chief says riots not helping cause of racial justice: ‘Enough is enough’
“Portlanders need to send a strong message that enough is enough,” Lovell told reporters at Tom McCall Waterfront Park, according to KGW-TV in Portland. “This is not forwarding the goals that are going to lead to better outcomes for people of color. This movement is really powerful, but the violence has taken away from it. … This is not what Portland is about. This is not what we need in our city.”
No shit Sherlock; brilliant deduction; what the hell took you so long?? Did your alarm clock just go off??
It took 3/4 of your city to be torn apart before you noticed this a not what normal/legal protesting is all about?? How soon will it be before the fools in the other war torn cities get them message??
Even the most feeble minded person in this county knows, a safe and prosperous society can not exist without law and order. This it absolute proof that this country has some very incompetent fools running their governments. I believe that all of the permissive heads of government that allowed conditions to get this out of hand should be held responsible for their inactivity and the aftermath of it.
I am sure that all the cities in this country have the same oath of office for their city officials. By looking at this, I would say they all failed miserably and should have to pay the price.
I, (name), do solemnly (affirm or swear) that I will support the Constitutions of the United States and of the State of Oregon and the Charter of the City of Portland and its laws; and I will faithfully, honestly and ethically perform my duties as (office).Aug 31, 2019
If cops should be held accountable for their action, why is it any different for the mayors and governors to walk down the same path?? If they would have executor their powers when the rioting started (not the demonstrations) the country would not be in such turmoil. What that is telling me; the cities that suffered; their officials did not – are not doing their jobs that they swore to before taking office.
It is just a matter of time that the other leftists city will crumble like Portland. Are you listening and paying attention Warren/AKA DeBlasio and you other fools??
I hope that the voting public remember when they go to the voting booths that ALL of the cities and states that under siege are run by socialists/democratic mayors and governors. They are all part of the Political Ponzi Scheme I have been talking about. In the end; the only winners are the ones on top of the pyramid.
Time to clean house people. Get rid of all homegrown and foreign terrorists, police have to start policing the police (my recommendation for months) – deport any and anti-Americans that are conspiring to take down the country (how about it Soros) – the black community has to get a handle on their out of control crime rate – the courts have to do their jobs and penalize the offending cops to the fullest – mayors and governors have to do what they were elected for and take their politics out of politics – the general public has to start respecting one another – and most importantly, start EDUCATING their kids on how to become stand-up, productive citizens of the USA.
Tall order?? Hell yes, but if you do not agree with my analogy, give me some better suggestions. What the hell they are doing now (nothing) is not cutting it. Think of the future of generations and how you would want to see them raised.
Ask the mayor of Portland what he thinks of the current situation and how it got to where it is.
“I’ve never seen a summer like this,” Lovell, who was named police chief in early June, said.
Sooner or later we all have to pay the Piper for our mistakes and poor judgement. This is the kind of government Portland and the other fools perpetuated; now they don’t like it.
I always maintained:
