It became highly chaotic in Portland overnight as Antifa and a Proud Boys group, as well as other random people, went to all-out war in the streets. They tossed explosive devices, pepper spray, tear gas, rocks, and other items at each other. There was also a brief exchange of gunfire.
We have yet to see any mainstream media cover this, but we already know which side they will paint as the bad guys.
There are videos and photos below, including the exchange of gunfire. If police make a statement we’ll try to include as an update.

I was stuck in a cubby of a doorway of sorts during the shooting and managed to slip my phone out and film a little bit. Nobody has been hit. A car took a little bit of damage though.

This stuff isn’t going to stop.
You know, unless the police in these cities decide to stop letting terror groups have free rein.
