    Could be, but if you have a question, you don’t want the answer.

    30 years ago those little **** stains would have gotten a baton to the head and deserved it.

    Being shot by the National Guard is about as seriously militaristic as you can get in CONUS.

    Then, a little earlier there was the '68 Democratic Convention ...

    Today's masked and black-clad Antifa people probably wouldn't have fared well against either the 60's & 70's police, nor the other protestors of those times. Folks on both sides of the protest lines were a bit quicker to act in those frenetic days.

    "The whole world is watching, the whole world is watching!" They were watching Mayor Daley's people sort them out pretty effectively.

    Sadly, no. While Portland P.D. was there, the movers and shakers were Federal Police Officers.

    Why do they all seem to be feminine skinny boys who talk like girls and look like they play Xbox all day in mom's basement?

    Not being argumentative in the least, but could you please explain. Last I checked there were no Federal Police Officers, unless you count DC Capitol Police.

    Several Federal agencies have uniformed police officers. I think if you look closely you will notice Homeland Security on several of the uniforms. The SUV parked where they are detaining the arrestee is clearly marked Federal police. There are more comprehensive videos of this incident available online. As I recall this incident started on a Federal installation of some kind.

    Portland PD just needs to apply some good old hickory to the antifa problem like was done in the 60’s.

    I would love to see one of these big liberal city PDs go on about a 10 to 12 day strike just to see what happens...

    I know that Homeland has uniformed officers but that they are referred to as Agents. First time I have seen (or noticed) that they were indeed marked as Police Homeland Security on their vests and that the vehicles were marked Federal Police. But I do think that they are specifically called agents to avoid the negative connotations of a federal police agency.

    They are brave only BECAUSE the Police are NOT what they call them.
    If the Police were 30% as bad as these idiots say those idiots wouldn’t dare protest.
    They only dare protest because of the restraint the Police show the mentally incompetent. (Kindest terms that shouldn’t violate tos)

    I'd speculate because they are. And ... since nowadays the police have been instructed to let them do what they want. Sorta like the ROE did to the soldiers in the middle east wars. But what does protesting have to do with breaking windows and setting fires? Seems some ROE should be ascribed to violent protestors, too....
