I have to say this... the Portland Police are wimps. I watch this live and the Police all but ran and hid. The trash took over the city and the Portland Police huddled like little girls begging for mercy.... It was a sad sight to see.
This is the same Police Dept. that harassed Tea Party members last year. The same city that forced high permit fees on ANY Tea Party event. The same city that CONDEMNED the Tea Party and did all they could to denied them their free speech rights.
Why treat the peaceful Tea Party like criminals and then treat the criminals of the Occupy Movement (AKA Flea Party) like saints?
Could it be the rampant drug us at Tea Party events? No... that cant be it because that only happens at Occupy events.
Could it be the countless rapes and sexual assaults at Tea Party events? Nope... that only happens at Occupy events.
Could it be the murders that occurred at Tea Party events? Nope... there were none at Tea Party events but there have been some at Occupy events.
Could it be the child abuse at Tea Party events? Nope... that has only happened at Occupy events.
Perhaps it's the massive destruction of public property feared from the Tea Party.. Again that can't be possible because then has not been even one documented case of such damage. BUT the city of Portland has ALREADY estimated that the city will spend $500,000 in city employee overtime and $50,000 in repairs to the parks the Occupy camps are located in.
So what could it be?
