Portland Police Arrest 11 in Another Night of Violent Protest

Hannah Bleau, Breitbart, September 9, 2020

Authorities arrested 11 demonstrators following another night of violent protest in Portland late Tuesday into Wednesday morning.

A group of demonstrators failed to heed the warnings of officials late Tuesday night, marching to the Transit Police Department Offices and standing on Max train rails, which police say “interfered with trains getting through the area.”

“Other group members stood in the street, blocking vehicular traffic,” according to the Portland Police Bureau (PPB). Authorities warned members of the group they needed to move and allow traffic to proceed or face “crowd control agents, including, but not limited to, tear gas and/or impact weapons.” Some demonstrators refused to listen and hurled water bottles and eggs at cops:

Authorities made dozens of arrests following violent protests in the Rose City over the weekend, with 59 arrests stemming from Saturday night’s demonstrations alone. Rioters have targeted police precincts, set fires, and targeted cops, tossing various projectiles, including commercial-grade fireworks, in their direction during the ongoing protests in the city.
