(TargetLiberty.org) – Left-wingers claimed the presence of federal law enforcement was provoking violence in Portland, OR, but after their negotiated withdrawal in early August, the rioting and unrest have just gotten worse. Portland cops have been forced to declare a riot twice already this week as the city hits 12 weeks of daily disruption.

On Tuesday night, protesters broke into the Multnomah County headquarters and started a fire inside the building. Another riot was declared Wednesday, after protesters attacked an Immigration and Customs Enforcement building, attempting to break windows and setting fires outside the building. Significantly, Portland residents – many of whom have supported the protests so far – were seen at their windows, shouting at the activists to be quiet and even throwing liquid on them.
Meanwhile, Portland cops are still hunting the ringleader of Sunday night’s mob attack, where Black Lives Matter protesters assaulted and beat a driver who had attempted to protect a woman from street robbers.
