Ohhh great more excuses for parents to whine about pepper spray on the playgrounds

Worst PDX Mayor Ever

Hopefully when Stan Pulliam is the Governor, he'll call out the Oregon National Guard, and he will put ZERO restrictions on their use of force. Water cannons, german shepherds, batons, tear gas..you name it..and they'll be allowed to use it.

"no arrests made"

It's Portland, that's the norm.

Apparently arson is still legal in Portland.

And Portland want to hire park rangers.

Arrest some people!!! Put the videos on the news, find these people. Nip it in the bud. Portland can't do this again this summer. What is gonna happen if this Floyd thing that PORTLAND has nothing to do with goes haywire. I have heard from hundreds of people that used to love Portland because it was safe and clean. Now people are embarassed to take anyone from out of town anywhere near Portland.

Worst PDX Mayor Ever

Well dear, the smart people, the ones with decency and personal integrity..are leaving Portland, and will never have anything to do with it ever again.

Just curious

Time to blame Trump again

Why arrest them? This is Portland where criminals run free, our politicians don't care about law abiding citizens but support anarchy, arsonists and rioters

Well said! Not sure why they even bother adding Rangers. They won't/can't do anything according to Feckless Ted anyway!

Lawlessness Brings Destruction

Rangers will only be human shields between the useless politicians and the thugs.

Lawlessness Brings Destruction

It will be like those useless unarmed Wackenhut observe-and-report alleged security that was used on the MAX line years ago. They couldn't do a thing and thugs had a great time intimidating them. The thugs today will sweep the street with these rangers.
