Ah yes, Portland, the only city in the world where the residents think murder is just being weird.

And nobody has the guts to ask where the guns are coming from, neither the press nor the police. :)

over 100 bullet casing found. Would have been a LOT more except that ammo is VERY hard to find nowadays, now that we have "de-funded. re-immaginged(means "go away bad persons"). Here is what is happening... they stell 100+ rounds and shot 'em up..... then they leave cause they need to go steal some more rounds(remember ammo shortage at dealerships).... then they can come back. This explains why we see so many shooting of 50-100 rounds and no more that evening. All this points to the real need for a recall of those in 'leadership'.. You cna do this Portland!!! BTW today the news announces that Cal now has the 1.5 million signatures needed to recall Gov Newsome by MArch 18th. The signature gatherers claim that they are going to have a full 2 + million by that date.

A note to my soon to be 95 year young Mom, Thanks for moving us outta Portland when I was 10 in 1964 to rural Sherwood.

My dad HAD talked of doing that but we stayed in North too long. As soon as the black panthers moved all business off UNION Ave, we need we were destined to become Detroit. And lookey now, we're approaching that so quickly

Forced cooperation to retrieve suspect information is all it would take. You see, waterboarding could have a use in America.
