So for the last 10 months every major crime in Portland have been committed by a black person. Prove me wrong..


Felon in possession. We all know that charge will be dropped.


4AM huh? If it wasn't for their stray rounds hitting innocent people sleeping in their homes, I'd say just block off the streets after midnight and let them kill each other. Maybe we could use PIR for it. Let two cars hit the track at a time. They get one lap to shoot each other, then they have to rotate back to the end of the line, and we let the next two cars on the track. Many drag strips were created back in the 1960s to keep hot rodders off the streets, maybe we can open some places up to keep gangbangers off the streets?


Come on Portland, you can do better than this. At least four or five per day are needed to keep up with the big boys from back east.
