Reporters Covering Portland Ferguson Protests “Arrested” With Protesters

When the Portland Professional Protesters decided to do a “die in” in the middle of the street, the cops announced a mass arrest. Three reporters were swept up, told they were arrested, and taken into temporary custody.

In case you’re wondering, that is ridiculous. It is wrong. They were not breaking the law, they were watching those breaking the law.

As the Portland Police Bureau does its after action report on this latest episode of the Portland Protester Class, I hope they re-think sweeping up reporters who are doing NOTHING wrong except REPORTING.

I call on the Society of Professional Journalists to file a complaint with the PPB over this complete overreach by the Portland Police Bureau.

Chant at Portland Ferguson Protest Should Chill You to the Bone

Hey, “Peaceful Ferguson Protesters”, chanting for the deaths of police officers isn’t, uh, peaceful.

Caught on tape by Laughing at Liberals, this was one of the pre riot chants by, ahem, “peaceful” Portland Professional Protesters.

Portland ‘Ferguson’ Protester Punches Man Stuck in Car And It Reminds Us Of…

…what actually happened in St. Louis, near Ferguson.

In St. Louis, a Bosnian man was beaten to death with hammers when he got out of his car to demand a mob of black teens stop attacking his car. He died later at a hospital. 

Meanwhile in Portland, Laughing at Liberals captured the moment when ‘peaceful’ protesters punched this driver:

Another guy taking video captured the same moment:
Hey, Portland police, instead of rounding up law abiding journalists, why not arrests the thugs? …just a thought.
