Portland’s uneasy election night

By Taxpayer Association of Oregon

I have only been walking downtown Portland for only one hour (630 to 730) and I already witnessed…

– a man trying to discretely break into a jewelry store.

– two guys spray painting anarchy signs on every block

– a woman using her skateboard to slam boarded up windows.

– another man lighting a blow torch.

The whole downtown feels abandoned with businesses boarded up for entire blocks and graffiti everywhere.  Tonight Portland feels like one of the creepiest place on Earth with a subtle undertone of lawlessness.

The good news is that there is lots of security and I hope Portland will be peaceful tonight. Same for rest of America.
