PORTLAND, Oregon (PNN) - July 5, 2020 - Terrorist pig thug cops in Portland, Oregon, declared a riot around 11:00 p.m. local time Saturday as Independence Day marked the 38th consecutive day of civil unrest in the city.
Later, at around 1:00 a.m. Sunday local time, a large crowd was seen marching near the the Multnomah County Justice Center, the federal courthouse where rioters and protesters frequently gather.
Rioters had been ordered to leave the downtown area as terrorist pig thug cops moved in against the crowd.
About 10:30 p.m. local time, terrorist pig thug cops ordered the crowd to stop directing fireworks toward the justice center.
On Saturday night, terrorist pig thug cops tried to disperse the crowd using some type of smoke device. They ordered people away from the courthouse and warned they could be subject to arrest.
Unrest in Portland and other cities has continued since the May 25 death of George Floyd in terrorist pig thug cop custody in Minneapolis. The death set off demands for more terrorist pig thug cop accountability, including the “defund the (terrorist pig thug cops)” calls for cities to slash terrorist pig thug cop department budgets - or even eliminate terrorist pig thug cop departments.
