“I DON’T SEE NO RIOT HERE-TAKE OFF YOUR RIOT GEAR”

8/08/20, 11:05 AM

Yesterday (8/7/20), we reported that the Portland Police Bureau (PPB) was gearing up for more trouble at either their South East 106th precinct or the East precinct on 47th and Burnside.

Last night, the East Burnside Street precinct turned out to be the target location for a well organized/prepared group of protestors that blocked traffic and used bright lights, as well as, lasers against the police while yelling profanities and chanting “I don’t see no riot here-take off your riot gear.”

The police created a boundary at the entrance to the precinct and anyone that crossed over into the entrance or parking lot was immediately apprehended and taken away.

Several protestors ordered us to stop photographing them while demanding we keep our cameras pointed only at the police.

As the protest continued and the tempo increased, we heard via a loud speaker the police declare the gathering of people an unlawful assembly with orders to disperse or be subject to arrest.
