Re: Knapp, do you think federal property should be protected?

 

https://ktvz.com/news/oregon-northwest/2020/07/20/federal-officers-use-tear-gas-as-fire-set-at-portl... 

On Sunday, July 20, 2020, people gathered in front of the Mark O. Hatfield Federal Courthouse in downtown Portland. Hundreds of people stood blocking SW 3rd Avenue while dozens of others tampered with the fence around the courthouse.

At about 9:40 p.m. people in the crowd breached the fence enough to allow access to the area fenced off. The crowd chanted and pulled at the fence for about ninety minutes. At about 11:20 p.m. federal law enforcement came out of the courthouse for a few minutes and attempted to repair the fence, then went back inside.

At about 11:35 p.m. people began climbing the fence and at about 11:43 p.m. people pulled down the fence allowing access to the area in front of the courthouse. Dozens of people with shields, helmets, gas masks, umbrellas, bats, and hockey sticks approached the doors of the courthouse. Federal law enforcement came out of the courthouse at about 11:50 p.m. and dispersed the crowd.

Over the next two hours hundreds of people wandered around downtown Portland many regrouping on SW 3rd Avenue in front of the courthouse, in the adjacent parks and around the Justice Center. At 1:31 a.m. a person climbed onto the northwest corner of the Justice Center to tamper with a security camera. At 1:34 a.m. people lit a fire within the portico in front of the federal courthouse. Others gathered around the fire adding wood and other debris to make it larger.

At 1:42 a.m. federal law enforcement came out of the courthouse, dispersed the crowd and extinguished the fire.

Portland Police were not present during any of the activity described. Portland Police did not engage with any crowds and did not deploy any CS gas.

Re: those moms

putting women and children at the front of a confrontation is something that gutless wonders have been doing for a long time.

Trump may have to take the nuclear codes and the federal government out of some of these states in rebellion and let them handle their own messes.

you need to defend your sea coasts when you regroup into a defensible territory.

Re: Knapp, do you think federal property should be protected?

I already answered this, so go back and find it. I believe that the National Guard should have been deployed rather than Homeland Security. They should have also been stationed outside the perimeter and been visible. They have dealt with this before in previous decades. Trump wants to use his own secret police though, presumably because he likes the idea and they will obey him with no Generals questioning the orders and making suggestions.

Trump is doing a lousy job. You could do it better yourself.

Trump is doing a lousy job, but you never asked why the Portland police was not protecting property.  And if they could not do it why was the governor not calling up the national guard. Why is it that you never asked those questions knap?

knapp just wants to go with "orange man bad" and not get his simple mind confused by anything more nuanced.

Knapper is just so uninformed. A few years back he claimed he knew nothing of the American citizen Hillary along with the Obama administration put in jail for a year for making a video no one saw. He only knows what the cult leaders tell him needs to know. Rest of the time he's too busy making koolaid.
