Soon the law-and-order president, Donald J. Trump, will be in charge.
Oh, did the Portland police bother to ask the rioters for their parade permit? Even the ACLU says they are needed for large protests.
Thousands protesting Donald Trump's victory in the presidential election took to the streets for a third night of demonstrations and vigils in several US cities.I'll wager that a majority of the "protesters" didn't even vote on Tuesday. As Michael Caine's Alfred character said of the Joker in The Dark Knight, "Some men just want to watch the world burn."
An anti-Trump rally in Portland, Oregon, revved up as protesters confronted police Thursday night. What started out as a peaceful march, with more than 4,000 people, quickly turned violent.
Over the course of the evening, "anarchists" in the crowd threw objects at officers, vandalized local businesses and damaged cars, Portland Police Sgt. Pete Simpson said.
Police publicly declared a "riot" due to "extensive criminal and dangerous behavior" and called the protest "unlawful," according to posts on the department's Twitter page.
