Portland "riot?"

A friend of mine said there was a riot in Portland, he saw it on Faux "news" yesterday.

I looked it up, found Greg Gutless...I mean Gutfield whining about this "riot," yet a search of Portland news sources found no "riot," much less anyone attacked.

My sister who lives in Portland said there was no riot, either.

Is this the usual bullshit from Faux "news?"

1. There was a gunman at a Fred Meyer's Starbucks.

Maybe referring to that?

He ended up shooting at the police and got shot in return. He's in the hospital. Fred's got locked down for a while but no customers were hurt.

I saw a pic of many police cars with their lights on surrounding Fred's so maybe he saw that and wrote his own narrative?

I'm just guessing.

2. This was a supposed "Antifa riot."

Complete with a conservative being attacked, supposedly.

3. So I went to the Portland subReddit where I get

all my Portland news.

Tucker Carlson had a segment about some shit that went down last month between Portland police, protesters, and the ICE agents.

He was bitching about how Portland is an "out of control city" with "mob rule" ( i.e., not their side ).

I didn't watch the whole video on YouTube but I guess he's mad that the police had a stand down order or something.

Anyway, that happened last month, he said.
ETA: I only watched a few minutes but the Reddit posters are making fun of the conservative guy. Guess he's a known idiot.

4. I mean we have periodic

Nazi incursions from outside the city, and the people of Portland tend to react to that much the same way any immune system responds to infection.

But no. No riots.
