Perhaps my self am out of step of the reality of others, I must say though, my reality is not the same as this City of Portland Mayor: Ted Wheeler for he is at present, a failure of understanding the violence placed against his city he as Mayor is responsible for. His failures as a list: Is failure to understand the present and currant situation that is occuring in his city. With this, is his failure to act accordingly to the situation. For part and partial to his responsibility is to insure protection of the city he serves to insure both life and property is safe and secure against those who wish to harm and destroy.
It has been what, over 50 days of rioting and destruction of personal and business property and then for this criminals to then intend to create distruction of federal property for the only reason that they believe they can.
Yes, the veteran suffering at the hands of those Federal agents, made a good story to be propagated by the news media is true. The veteran in question was brazen enough to believe he was protected by being part in numbers with the mob, then to approach these officers on riot duty to ask them why their vehicles were unmarked. Off course, the silly ass was struck and suffered for his stupidity. If to take this in context, a reasonable person would not have been with this mob and second, to join such a criminal group in pursuit of past actions against persons and property, is and should be considered as part and partial as of them.
For as of the mayor with out honour, Mr. Ted Wheeler, to salvage his pride and failures, he would naturally protest the presence of Federal agents who are conducting what he should have acted upon.
