2. I noted the change, but don't know the reason.

It might that she wants help, but not the kind of "help" Portland received.

Maybe someone else knows.

4. It seems to me that she is welcoming assistance from IDENTIFIED, LEGITIMATE and

ACCOUNTABLE law enforcement. She is not ok with the unbadged unidentified camo-clad militia like Trump sent to Portland.
