PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – Thirteen people were arrested, and over 100 people were detained after a march that caused damages and criminal activity in the Pearl District Friday, according to Portland Police Bureau.

The group began marching on the street at approximately 9:00 p.m., blocking traffic from Jamison Park on 810 Northwest 11th Avenue. As the group reached Northwest 15th Avenue and Northwest Overton Street, some in the crowd began breaking windows leading officers to create a perimeter around the group on Northwest Marshall Street between Northwest 13th Avenue and Northwest 14th Avenue.

Police told the crowd that they were detaining everyone within the perimeter for “investigation of crimes.”

“Those that were being detained were identified and photographed, as part of a criminal investigation, before being released,” according to a press release by PPB. “Some refused to comply and locked arms together in an effort to interfere with the investigation. Officers escorted them away, and they were arrested. A suspect in the earlier window vandalism was arrested and charged.”

Officers say they found several items left behind by people inside the perimeter, including a crowbar, hammers, bear spray, slugging weapon with rocks, high impact slingshot, and knives.

While the event unfolded, several groups formed outside of the perimeter outside and physically challenged officers. According to PPB, some people in the crowd threw rocks and full cans of beer at the officers. Officers deployed some OC (pepper) spray and one impact munition.

You don't have to work very hard at outsmarting those losers. A neutered police force is embarrassing.

It's fun when people ruin their future. Before long, you lose all credibility whatsoever.

This is what you get, Teddy, Katy, et al, when you encourage lawlessness in the name of some vacuous "social justice". You started a wildfire that is now out of control. Responsible adults have understood this for millenia.

The Mayor, a local judge and course the vacuous city attorney will get these idiots back on the street in no time.

"“Those that were being detained were identified and photographed, as part of a criminal investigation, before being released," ?? Note the names and descriptions..... being immediately released.... they will be back tonight and every night !!!! Some DA.... right out of a Dirty Harry movie.... the immensely feckless Da & Mayor and Crewe

. These animals, these devils will be back out there again.... they have been emboldened by the CYA coming out of the City Govt.

Finally, this should have happened long ago. When you damage property you are not a legitimate protest. Crime rates are through the roof in most of Portland and the police aren't available to respond to calls because they have to deal with these hooligans. If it's not a peaceful protest take their names and press charges. I want the police available to catch criminals in the rest of Portland too.

Moved on

should have done that from day one.

look them up or buy them bus tickets back were they came from.

keep up the good work
