Those little gang punks try blocking the freeway while I'm going across, and their cars are going to have thousands in metal fab work..as in..repairing dozens of bullet holes.


LOL, perhaps the Portland Police needs some help finding the bridge?


I hope they catch those squirrels and suspend their drives licenses for a decade. They give legitimate auto enthusiasts a bad name and hork up traffic with the nutty games.


Lol - I know someone who was there, but I'm not going to do the pigs' job for them.

Only a complete low-life, uses that euphemism for law enforcement officers, and brags about "knowing someone who was there." Tell me, where do you hang out..now that Cider Riot is closed?
