PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – In the second night of demonstrations in Portland, nearly 50 people were arrested by police.

Saturday night included Mayor Ted Wheeler’s state of emergency curfew, which went into effect at 8 p.m. citywide.

The gatherings of protesters both Friday and Saturday were in response to the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who was killed by a Minneapolis police officer Monday. The police officer was first fired and then charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter for his kneeling on Floyd’s neck that was caught on camera by a witness.

According to Portland police, demonstrators first started gathering downtown around 5:30 p.m. Saturday and “quickly became confrontational and aggressive” with officers who were providing security at the Multnomah County Justice Center.

On Friday night, the Justice Center was targeted and vandalized while employees were still working inside.

At about 6:45 p.m. Saturday, police said officers were approached by hundreds of demonstrators, some of whom they said threw projectiles at officers and assaulted one officer.

At that point, the gathering was deemed by police to be an illegal assembly and demonstrators were ordered to leave the area. Police warned that those who did not comply would be subject to force from officers.

Police said demonstrators continued to throw things at officers, so riot control agents were deployed to the Justice Center and demonstrators dispersed from the area.

When the clock hit 8 p.m., police said anyone who was breaking the city’s curfew would face possible arrest.

At about 11:35 p.m., police said aerial mortars and fireworks were thrown at the Multnomah County Courthouse. At the scene, officers dispersed the crowd with riot control agents.

Over the course of five hours, police said businesses were vandalized in downtown and the Lloyd District. The vandalism included fires, smashed windows, looting and illegal use of construction site materials for blocking streets and traffic.

In total, police announced that 48 arrests were made by officers and members of partner law enforcement agencies for criminal activity in Saturday night’s events. Those arrested range in age from 18 to 49 and they face a variety of charges:

How can protesters get away with the large gatherings that are not supposed to happen by Governors orders.These protest are costing everybody dollars as far as Insurance Rates, Police Overtime, ETC. The low lifes that are breaking the law and rules of the current pandemic are a bunch of idiots. They need to use non lethal force by using Tear Gas more and fire hoses to get them off the streets. The National Guard should be used. Rules are rules and everybody needs to abide.

Just curious

[thumbup][thumbup]I sure hope the Governor & Mayor listen to you.

'Dozens of people arrested in Saturday night protests, Portland police say' And these punks will keep doing this.

Well said:

Why are Democrat run cities festering pools of poverty and unrest? Because no SANE person would EVER want to establish a business within the jurisdiction of a Democrat-run location. The Police cannot be counted upon to protect the property or its occupants and the Elected 'Leadership' lacks the courage to hold them to account or to hold their constituents to account.

So ALL of the municipalities that persist in proving 'The Definition of Insanity' axiom attributed to Albert Einstein: "...doing the same thing over and over expecting a different outcome each time." are reaping the benefits of that self-inflicted insanity.

For nigh onto 50 years now, the voters in large metropolitan areas have persisted in electing Democrats who, perennially, FAIL to improve the lives of ANYONE but their own families.

For conservatives feeling trapped in these holes, there are THOUSANDS of small communities governed by conservatives elected by voters, of ALL races, who care about their communities and those therein that would welcome you and your investments. Abandon these replicas of Beirut and Baghdad and Mogadishu and come and improve your lot in life along with improving things even more for those of us who have already made that choice. But, please, leave your liberal, Democrat-voting past behind. No sense in turning your new home into the hole you are attempting to leave behind.

Anybody remember COVID19?

It seems only a few weeks ago that we were told that demonstrations and protests posed an unacceptable risk of spreading the virus and would lead to thousands of deaths. I guess that’s over now. Can we unlock our cities for the rest of us, please?
