I agree. Further, these are not Trumpers. It's young whities who don't have to work the next day. Earthshine2 Sep 2020 #8

For the most part, it's white people messing with the cops.

Eventually, the cops will charge at them.

i cry driving around my city now. i had surgery and had to go to St V in Beaverton and i was horrified. Portland looks so awful now. just awful. who are some of those hideous people who are committing the violence? It is n't the moms and black people. it is those evil trumpers who infiltrated the groups.

i love offering my opinion and even protesting but these creeps are not protesting. they are destroying mom and pop busionesses. they are hurting innocents in the crowds.

i say ......................... LOCK THEM UP!!!! 42 YEARS IN THE SLAMMER !!!

This can only harm the Dems in the next election.

If we don't get the presidency, Trump is likely to go Tiananmen Square on them.

The world is burning down.

Roe is dying as we mourn.

You wanna protest - How about when it’s daylight?
