Only the American people can put a stop to this carnage by voting the Democrats out of office. The Democrat Party is dangerous because the violent Left represent their core constituents. As such, Americans will continue to be terrorized in cities that are controlled by the Democrat Party.

Portland Police Recover Molotov Cocktails, Ammunition During Violent Protests

By The Daily Signal, July 27, 2020

Portland police officers recovered Molotov cocktails and rifle ammunition late Sunday evening near the U.S. courthouse that has been the site of recent protests.

The Portland Police Department recovered the “destructive devices” in a bag in Lownsdale Square Park across the street from the Mark O. Hatfield U.S. Courthouse while investigating a shots fired call, police said. The discovery occurred as protesters and rioters continued to clash with federal agents protecting the courthouse.

Protesters lobbed fireworks, rocks, cans, and other objects at officers protecting the courthouse who have responded by using nonlethal weapons to control the crowd, The Associated Press reported.

Protests in Portland have occurred for more than 55 consecutive days since the death of George Floyd who died after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck, video of the incident shows. Violence intensified, though, after President Donald Trump’s administration authorized the mobilization of federal agents, who are largely Department of Homeland Security officers, to help quell protests, according to The New York Times.

A federal judge denied Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblaum’s request for an order to stop federal agents from arresting Portland protesters Friday, NBC affiliate KGW News reported. Democratic Mayor Ted Wheeler spoke out against the use of federal agents at a protest Wednesday and was later tear-gassed.
