Police said a riot was declared due to the direct attacks on officers.

The crowd was dispersed with the majority of the group went north to Kenton Park. Police gave more warnings and hose that did not leave were moved out of the park.

Police said a smaller group made their way back to the PPA officer where they were warned that it was a riot and they needed to disperse.

In an effort to deescalate, police said they left the area.

Some people moved back out onto Lombard Street and blocked traffic with dumpsters, fencing and other items. Small fires were also lit in the roadway.

Those who were in the street were warned to move to the sidewalk. People in the street moved back after some time and the street was reopened.

Police said tear gas was not used overnight.

FedUp

I think it's hideous that the good people of Portland should have their police forced to deal with this kind of violent behavior then be badmouthed for their actions. Someone needs to nail the troublemakers! I really think the majority of the residents want it stopped but where is a safe platform for those Oregonians to peaceful protest without fear of the violent people interfering? I can't believe those who could stop this nightmare are so lame! Shame on the lot of them! Get them out of those positions and replace them with someone who cares enough to protect Portlanders and their city and keep it intact...what's left of it!

'Police declare riot outside Portland Police Association after officers injured by 'commercial grade fireworks' But according to an article by Audrey Weil, all these riots are peaceful protests. Weird.

46? If you're 46 and you're in this mob, you need a mental evaluation.

Moved on

Dear Mr trump,

Please bring back the Fed's

[thumbup][thumbup] Bring 'em back and let them put an end to these riots right now by whatever force is needed.

Time for real bullets, real riot shotguns, shoot to injure and not to kill. So beyond ridiculous! What leadership in City Hall?

Frederick Fukov

I would at least start with high powered water cannons on top of humvees, angry german shepherds and night sticks upside the terrorists' domes. Crack a few skulls and that will get their attention. Send a few to the hospital every night, until their numbers dwindle.

Charlatan

Yes! Please escalate the situation with more violence! That will surely bring these protests to and end!

A C*ckhold leadership. And just wait, we'll have that marxist, Sarah Iannarone, probably going to take his place if it isn't a "person of color."

Charlatan

Some of us will shoot back...

chillypepper

Hmm, but you gangsta's have really bad aim, and you hold your pistols funny. Dude was shot at a couple blocks away from my place in NE, like 10 times, and all they got was his leg. I think a couple of hunters against a passel of gangstas and it will be about even. Or maybe slightly in favor of the hunters.
