According to that article they've started aiming lasers at random drivers in addition to the cops.

Not only is that likely to cause more rioter injuries as people go all hind-brain after they've been blinded, but there are going to be some folks that treat that the same as having an AK pointed at them.

I was illegally packing my old sp101 .357 magnum with crimson trace in San Francisco 15 yrs ago or so, when a jack-donkey pointed a laser in my face while I was riding my motorcycle.
I managed to turn my head in time but was very tempted to empty to fire at him, as there was no way to be sure it was merely a pointer

Regarding the truck pushing the bike:

Quote
Police said someone also fired a gun during the unrest and a pickup truck accelerated into the crowd while pushing an unoccupied motorcycle in front of it.
https://www.foxnews.com/us/portland-police-chief-says-riots-not-helping-cause-of-racial-justice-enough-is-enough

Without having seen the video, I would think from that quote that someone just rammed their truck through the crowd out of spite or frustration. Having seen the video, that is not, of course, what happened. That was self-defense. The cops must have seen the video.

I guess now that the rioters have switched from fed buildings to city buildings, the Portland Mayor has decided they are bad.

ONLY because it may help get Trump reelected

Quote
Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler Thursday evening condemned the actions of rioters who attempted to set fire to a police precinct and blocked the exits while officers were inside.

Peacefully of course

And yet, he's STILL a mealy-mouthed weasel:

"When you commit arson with an accelerant in an attempt to burn down a building that is occupied by people who you have intentionally trapped inside, you are not demonstrating, you are attempting to commit murder"

NO. If you commit arson of an occupied building, that's attempted murder. None of this crap about "trapping people inside."

It might sound like I'm being a pedant, but since these... ....leftist politicians.... .... have been trying to say "ATTACKING PROPERTY ISN'T VIOLENCE!"1 it's necessary to make this point. These insurrectionists are trying to kill people EVERY TIME they attempt burning things down.

That they are also attempting to trap people inside is additional malice, not the factor for attempted murder.

1: I suppose I must also note that that's a lie, too. It most certainly is violence.

How the media is treating this crap reminds of how many of them treated 9-11  and it's gotten way worse since.
They act like we're the ones declaring war, unjustly of course, while completely ignoring the fact the other side already declared war on us some time ago.

You know what’s really wrong with Ted Wheeler? He is not lefty enough. His mayoral challenger is far to the left of him. Hope she wins because with the movies shut down I have lacked good popcorn eating media.  Popcorn

I think part of it is simply democrat politicians thinking they need to play to the mob.  

The other part of me says if they get rid of police, there will be multiple other groups set up to do the same thing only worse with less accountability.  

Possibly it's intentional, and someone thinks they can control and manage it.  Or folks further up the chain want us right where this would get us.

I think it's more a prelude to revolution, something much different than civil war.

The Fed.Gov would do themselves a favor if they did just that. They are, after all, directly tasked with the protection of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, all of which are being directly threatened by the inaction of Portland's local governance.

Nah, it'll be fine.

Plus, that's the government that they chose to elect.
