… armed BLM/Antifa thugs blocked a road on Thursday afternoon and opened fired on drivers who tried to get though their blockade.
So what’s next for Portland? I doubt that the thugs will back down, and I doubt that the city has enough of an effective police force remaining to engage in a gang war with the thugs. Of course, the Oregon National Guard is reasonably well stocked with veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan who’ve faced down rebels with AK-47s before. However, they’re not trained for civil policing, and Governor Brown may lack the will to commit the State Police and/or National Guard,
The situation isn’t stable, and if the city doesn’t right itself quickly and many people begin to take active measures to protect themselves, I expect the what remains of civilization in Portland will disappear.
I hope I’m wrong.
