Just another typical day in the Left-wing paradise that is Portland, Oregon.
After a white man was shot in a fatal police-involved shooting during a standard welfare check, an Antifa crowd erupted at a police crime scene in Portland last night and attacked police personnel and their vehicles. Here’s a police account of what happened, as well as a video from Andy Ngo:
On Thursday, June 24, 2021 at 7:06p.m., North Precinct officers were dispatched to a report of a welfare check on a white adult male dressed in all black at a motel in the 500 block of Northeast Holladay Street. After officers arrived with paramedics, they encountered a man matching that description and an officer involved shooting took place.
The subject involved was transported to a hospital by ambulance. Despite lifesaving efforts by medical personnel, he was deceased.

During the investigation, a group gathered at the crime scene and began yelling, throwing items at officers, and attempting to interfere with the investigation (photo). One officer’s baton was grabbed and she was being pulled toward the crowd. Other officers quickly intervened. Someone from the crowd pepper sprayed an officer. At least one police vehicle’s tires were punctured and a window broken. Police officers citywide were called to assist with scene security.
Rioters may also be seen throwing heavy objects at the officers in the video. This is totally inappropriate. However, because the city is clearly constraining officers’ hands, it ends up being just another day, another riot in Portland.
Portland cops shared photographs of the damage to one of their cruisers on Twitter:
