"The demonstration was peaceful for more than an hour, but demonstrators lit fires in dumpsters and broke windows. About an hour after arriving, small fires were seen inside the building beyond the broken windows.

About 10:30 p.m., police, who had not been seen previously, moved into the area and declared a riot, pushing protesters away. For the next hour and a half, demonstrators moved throughout the streets of inner Southeast Portland, being pushed north intermittently by groups of officers in riot
Multnomah County Chair Deborah Kafoury released a statement at midnight regarding the damage to the county building, saying a small group of protesters had set fire to the Office of Community Involvement."

1. Sounds like RWers . . .

Overall the protesters have been peaceful. Wouldn't surprise me that shithole's people are behind this.
