    Philly has a problem brewing trying to move the peaceful protesters. Is the Democrat mayor having a hard time?

    "We've received nearly 400 complaints from residents both around the (Ben Franklin) Parkway and in North Philadelphia," Kenney said. The two sites are along the Parkway near the Philadelphia Art Museum and on Ridge Avenue in North Philadelphia.

    About 30 minutes ahead of the deadline on Aug. 18,, people could be seen preparing for a confrontation and to barricade themselves, if needed. They gathered under a "Housing Now" banner.

    By 11 a.m. that day, the parkway camp remained with activists having set up a barrier blocking part of the road. There were some heated exchanges between demonstrators and people living in properties along the parkway, but no physical confrontations were seen.

    The tent camp on a baseball field on the parkway, which began on June 10 and grew to an estimated 100 to 150 people, was originally slated to be closed in July, but the mayor postponed the action in hopes of reaching a resolution.

    Kenney had said on Aug. 17 that after weeks of face-to-face discussions he had concluded that further negotiations would do no good. He said camp leaders' demands keep shifting, and some of their demands are out of the City's control or unachievable in the time they demand

    It appears we have some supporters of the radical right. The proud boys and others seem to get a free pass in all the excitement. Guns are acceptable to bring to protests and now the police are taking a no hands approach to "willing participants".
    No double standard ? I think many see otherwise.

    Portland Police Are Giving Up On Policing The Far-Right
    The Portland Police Bureau appears to have almost given up monitoring far-right factions on the streets of the city of Oregon, despite the recent rise in violence, with these extremists throwing explosives and incendiary weapons and, in one case, shooting other protesters.
    It is common for right-wing extremist groups like the Proud Boys in Portland to exchange blows with counter-protesters. They have been doing this for years, often when PPB officials watched until a riot was officially declared and the police then cleared the streets with tear gas and other ammunition.
    As officers stood by on Saturday, the Proud Boys and their far-right friends attacked and intimidated anti-fascist protesters with paintball guns, maces, fireworks, aluminum bats and various firearms, according to the Washington Post.
    Allowing local right-wing extremist groups to devastate the city is not a big step for the PPB. While the Proud Boys cheered, officials shot tear gas and other ammunition at anti-fascist counter-protesters during a rally in 2017, with an anti-fascist protester holding a gas canister. The police gave the Proud Boys an escort from the city after a rally in 2018, during which the far-right demonstrators were numerically among the anti-fascists. A key officer had a friendly and lasting relationship with the leader of Proud Boys' constituency Patriot Prayer, judging by the Willamette Week texts.
    Long before this month's events, the Proud Boys and other local Portland groups had been encouraged by government inaction during their rallies. The Proud Boys leadership admitted at a rally last year that one of their stated goals was to continue such demonstrations to waste taxpayers money, overload the city's resources and embarrass Democratic Mayor Ted Wheeler. (For his part, Wheeler released a statement Monday saying he had "closely examined" the PPB's "strategy to limit its intervention.")
    Now it seems that the Proud Boys not only enjoy a wider arsenal at their rallies, but also a tacit promise from the city that they will hardly or not at all be intervened by the police.

    What a hoot,giving up policing the right,what about the criminals that have destroyed the city ???dilusional to say the least.
    What we have is the protection of criminals over the law abiding citizens.If you don’t like guns don’t continue to do things to bring them out.
    Keep prodding the horse and you will get kicked.

    Portland is a joke as they let people riot and destroy then arrest them and days later they dismiss the charges so the so called demonstrators can go back and do it again..

    400 CRIMINAL PROTEST CHARGES DROPPED. VIOLENCE NOW LEGAL IN PORTLAND?

    https://oregoncatalyst.com/48864-400...-portland.html

    The Willamette Week reports that most of the 550 cases of protest criminal acts will be dropped by newly appointed Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt. Of the 550 cases, 47 will be followed up for prosecution with another 86 cases pending.

    Although it will take a while to examine how this plays out, here are some early indicators.

    It appears from the District Attorney that charges involving “resisting arrest” seems to be among the most common charges to be dropped.

    Charges will be dropped because the DA implies that people naturally commit crimes if they’ve been tear gassed and it really is the police’s fault. The logic is law enforcement’s attempt to stop a riot is enough excuse for people to create a riot because they can’t help themselves.
    OPB reports, District Attorney Mike Schmidt saying, “I’d be baking in some more restorative justice. And maybe even more community involvement in the resolution of these cases … to kind of honor the fact that they were there protesting and wanting to be heard. And then creating a venue where they could do that as part of some sort of negotiated dismissal.”
    This means that if you commit a crime, the District Attorney will give a chance for your politics to be heard.
    This wholesale forgiveness of protestors committing violent acts in the middle of Portland involving some of the worst and most persistent rioting in the nation’s modern history will be a dangerous sign to commit more violence.
