The Left is vilifying our police officers publicly. This is the result. It’s open season on our police officers. Most especially in cities governed by Democrat Party mayors, who require the political support from BLM and Antifa to win elections. Who would want to be a cop in this environment?

Riot declared in Portland after protesters set police station on fire
By New York Post, April 14, 2021
A riot was declared in Portland after at least 100 people descended on a police union building and set it ablaze — as angry protests continue across the US after the death of 20-year-old Daunte Wright in Minnesota.
The large group gathered in the area of Kenton Park and began marching toward the Portland Police Association Building on North Lombard Street shortly before 10 p.m. Tuesday, police said.
“Upon arrival at the building, someone from the group started a fire in a garbage can that was placed directly next to the building,” police said in a release.
“Police gave announcements to the crowd via the sound truck to stop their criminal activity or be subject to arrest and force,” the statement said.
Police said someone in the crowd used an accelerant to ignite the wooden framing around a door.
“Incident command declared a riot due to the criminal activity and danger the fires were posing to the neighborhood,” cops said. “Police gave more warnings and direction for people to get out of the street and walk away to the north.”
Firefighters later extinguished the blaze and one person, identified as Alma Raven-Guido, 19, was charged with second-degree arson, police said.
No tear gas or munitions were used to disperse the crowd, police added.
In Ohio, meanwhile, protesters managed to get inside the Columbus police headquarters Tuesday night after gathering at Mayme Moore Park for a vigil and balloon release, WBNS reported.
Police Sgt. James Fuqua said the vigil was peaceful until the group went to the headquarters, where some people became aggressive and began to pull on the doors.
Fuqua said the protesters pepper-sprayed at least one officer, according to the station. Police responded by also using pepper spray, he said, adding that one person was detained.
