Democrat Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler informed residents in the condo building he lives that he plans to move out of the facility. He said he is doing this for their safety. This is in response to being attacked by far-left extremists.
According to a report from The Oregonian Wheeler said to the fellow residents it would be “best for me and for everyone else’s safety and peace” if he moves.
“I want to express my sincere apologies for the damage to our home and the fear that you are experiencing due to my position,” it said in the email. “It’s unfair to all of you who have no role in politics or in my administration.”
According to the local paper, Wheeler bought the two-bedroom unit back in 2017 for $840,000.
Here is the police statement released by the Portland Police Department:
A mass gathering devolved into a riot after individuals broke windows, burglarized a business, and lit a fire in an occupied apartment building.
A group began by gathering in the North Park Blocks near Northwest Park Avenue and Northwest Couch Street. About 10:00p.m., a march began in the street to the area of Northwest 10th Avenue and Northwest Glisan Street. Some in the crowd began lighting off what appeared to be illegal commercial-grade fireworks. A fire was lit in a garbage can in the street. Some windows were broken and walls were defaced with graffiti (photo). In an attempt to deescalate, officers stayed out of sight and monitored the situation from a distance. However, the vandalism and burning continued. People were seen burglarizing a business, taking furniture out, and throwing it on the fires in the street (photo).
At 11:05p.m., due to the ongoing criminal behavior, the incident was declared an unlawful assembly and all persons were told over loudspeaker to immediately leave the area by traveling to the west. Failure to adhere to this order may subject them to arrest, citation, or crowd control agents, including, but not limited to, tear gas and/or impact weapons.
Here is video of the incident:

There is complete insanity in Portland. Many of these Democrat-led cities are literally up in flames.

Michael Moore Panics Over Trump Popularity: 'Wake Up... Can't Blame This One on Russia!'
Far-left documentary filmmaker Michael Moore is in full-blown panic mode! With the election just around the corner and President Donald Trump's popularity soaring, the never-Trumper is begging his followers to "wake up" because they "can't blame this one on the PO or Russia."
“Someone needs to pull the fire alarm NOW,” Moore wrote on Twitter, "Where are the stories about Trump gaining on Biden? Below’s a poll from Fri in Michigan.

Joe Biden: Trump Supporters are ‘an Armed Militia in This Country’
The grim creeper is back at it! Former Vice President Joe Biden left his basement long enough to bash President Trump and his supporters. He called Donny J's supporters “an armed militia in this country” during his speech on violence, Monday afternoon.
"This president, long ago, forfeited any moral leadership in this country. He can’t stop the violence because for years he’s fomented it. You know, he may believe mouthing the words “law and order” makes him strong. But his failure to call on his own supporters to stop acting as an armed militia in this country shows how weak he is," Biden said. "Does anyone believe there’ll be less violence in America if Donald Trump is reelected?"

I really wonder if former Vice President Joe Biden has been taking cues from CNN lately because he did just what Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon said that he should do. He is just a puppet after all though.
What I mean is that the he finally spoke up and addressed the rioting and looting happening right now.
