Marches, riot mark anniversary of George Floyd's death in Portland

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Police declared a riot after a crowd smashed windows at City Hall after trying to set the Justice Center on fire in downtown Portland on Tuesday night, a year to the day since George Floyd was murdered by a Minneapolis police officer.

Officers said shortly before 9:30 p.m. that the crowd was yelling “burn the building down” and had pushed a burning dumpster against the Justice Center. According to the Portland Police Bureau, others were throwing frozen water bottles and eggs at officers and metal spikes into the road. Some tore down fencing around Chapman Square Park and used segments to block SW 4th Avenue near SW Main Street."

1. Seems counterproductive

I was surprised by the support foR BLM holding on last year from both Dems and Indies. But time has passed. Rioting for it’s own sake is just that.
