Portland, Oregon's Mayor, Ted Wheel, seems to be buddies with the Antifa and Black Lives Matter activists and is on their side it seems. Eitehr that or he's just afraid of them or afraid of criticism if he acts against them.
But I'll tell you one thing, the federal government is not afraid and is taking strong action against them.
There have been hundreds of arrests, but specifically in Portlad recently, there were seven Antifa members arrested and they will be facing federal charges for attacking and vandalizing a federal courthouse in Portland.
Here is a portion of the statement that was released by the Department of Justice,
PORTLAND, Ore.—U.S. Attorney Billy J. Williams announced today that seven people have been arrested and face federal charges for their roles in weekend riots at the Mark O. Hatfield U.S. Courthouse in Portland.
According to court documents, since May 26, 2020, protests in downtown Portland have regularly been followed by nightly criminal activity including assaults on law enforcement officers, destruction of property, looting, arson, and vandalism.
Rowan Olsen, 19, of Portland, is charged with disorderly conduct, creating a hazard on federal property, and failing to obey a lawful order; Shant Singh Ahuja, 28, of Oceanside, California, is charged with destruction of federal property; and Andrew Steven Faulkner, 24, of Beaverton, Oregon; Gretchen Margaret Blank, 29, of Seattle, Washington; Christopher Fellini, 31, of Portland; Cody Porter, 28, of Portland; and Taimane Jame Teo, 24, of Eugene, Oregon, are charged with assaulting federal officers.
The Hatfield Federal Courthouse has been a repeated target of vandalism, sustaining extensive damage. U.S. Marshals Service deputies and officers from the Federal Protective Service, Homeland Security Investigations, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection working to protect the courthouse have been subjected to threats; aerial fireworks including mortars; high intensity lasers targeting officers’ eyes; thrown rocks, bottles, and balloons filled with paint from demonstrators while performing their duties.
On Thursday, Attorney General Bill Barr gave an update regarding investigations into Antifa and the riots that have been taking place across the country.
"We already arrested over 150 people on federal charges, and we have over 500 investigations underway going on across the nation focused on these hardcore instigators involved in this rioting," Barr said during a federal and local law enforcement roundtable discussion in Arkansas.
Can you imagine if Joe Biden were the president right now? Things would be much worse than they are right now.
