Police arrest 59, a new peak, on 101st night of Portland protests

By Molly Harbarger | The Oregonian/OregonLive, Sep 06, 2020

In a continual escalation of arrests, Portland police arrested 59 people Saturday night and Sunday morning, by far the most arrests from a single event since the beginning of the protests against police violence and anti-Black racism 101 days ago.

The arrests were almost all on low-level misdemeanors, as well as the felony charge of riot. Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt has said that he will dismiss charges for riot and many common misdemeanors if they don’t involve “deliberate’’ property damage, theft or force against another person or threats of force.

Oregon State Police arrested 16 of the 59. The state police have not released the names or charges for those 16.

The arrests follow a night in which a riot was declared and tear gas almost immediately deployed after three Molotov cocktails were thrown from the protesters and one person was burned. Police, citing the clothing of protesters and that some carried shields, said that they decided the protest would not be peaceful and so blocked protesters from marching to Portland Police Bureau’s East Precinct.

Protesters were scattered by tear gas and police pushes in different directions.

During the night, police rounded up several protesters at a time for arrest, creating the sight of seven people with hands ziptied sitting on a curb, waiting for transportation to the county jail — an unusual one for the protests so far.
