Today, armed #BLM protesters in Portland shut down the road. They beat up this older man & stole his gun. Additionally, the rioters smashed out windows of another vehicle. One person was transported to hospital. Police made no arrests. #antifa https://t.co/FS5guM41ap

Don’t even pretend like self-defense is an option. Antifa goons were there in plate carriers with rifles. This guy was outnumbered, outgunned, was tackled, and had his gun stolen.
The Portland Police issued a statement:
On May 5, 2021, at about 12:12 p.m., Portland Police were dispatched the report of a pedestrian struck by a car near North Interstate Avenue and North Killingsworth Street. This was related to a large group walking in the street there.
As officers arrived they did not find any pedestrians who claimed to have been struck. The large group had moved away, still walking in nearby streets, some openly carrying firearms. Officers remained in the area searching for anyone who may have been injured and to collect evidence and information.
Additional calls came in from people who had been driving vehicles in the area and who were blocked by the crowd in the street. One person said people in the crowd broke out their vehicle windows, damaged tires, and sprayed them with some kind of irritant near North Interstate Avenue and North Killingsworth Street.
A person in another vehicle blocked by the crowd near North Alberta Street and North Michigan Avenue got into a dispute with people who surrounded him and took a firearm from him, as well as tools and keys.
Portland Police attempted to collect as many statements as possible from those involved. Officers will document as much of the incidents as witnesses share and will attempt to gather available evidence, including video for follow-up on any criminal allegations.
The police are asking for tips, but who is going to rat on Antifa when Antifa can come to their home in the middle of the night with lights and lasers and megaphones and camp out on their lawn harassing and threatening them?
Assaulting motorists, threatening people with guns, trying to illegally detain people, and the police were utterly impotent.
This is not people LARPing as revolutionaries. This is an armed terrorist cell that has demonstrated that the governments of Portland and Oregon are unwilling and unable to stop them.
