Police Finally Cease the “Hands-Off” Rule When Protests in Portland is Deemed a Riot

Anti-Donald Trump protesters took to the streets of Portland for the third night in a row on November 10. Portland police department tweeted that “due to extensive criminal and dangerous behavior, protest is now considered a riot.”Police said Twitter that “anarchist groups” in the crowd were responsible for breaking windows, and warned peaceful protesters to demonstrate at Pioneer Square or be subject to arrest.

The rally was organized by community group Portland’s Resistance, with the Facebook event listing 22 demands, including an end to police brutality, “safe streets”, and “an affirmation of women’s rights including free and safe abortions.” Credit: Twitter/MrAndyNgo via Storyful
