Police pushing folks around and stealing a bicycle. Portlandprotest
In this video you can observe both @PortlandPolice brutality and also @PortlandPolice stealing a civilian's bike before continuing to assault everyone in sight.
Only about a third (if that) of these officers had badge numbers displayed, and not a name in sight.
PortlandPolice targeting journalists. Here is @Human42LM being arrested for walking across the street. They removed her press badge and cash from her pockets. She is visibly vomiting from countryside gas exposure. Journalist @TheRealCoryElia was also arrested.
Officers actions as police arrest an identifiable member of the press @PDocumentarians near NE Killingsworth and Mallory
And my semi-chaotic escape a short time later, featuring snack van, rolling dumpsters, & a woman who appeared to be yelling at protesters. I'm no longer on scene, but it seems at least some protesters went to PPB's north precinct where another unlawful assembly was declared
Signal was really bad near the Portland Police Association building, so here are some videos taken around 10 p.m. showing arrests, tear gas being launched, and confrontations between citizens and officers

"Let's take it to MLK boulevard."

PPB throw smoke and flash bangs and roll slowly back west (actually west this time). NLG grabbed a canister of "sting balls: smokeless rubber pellets" Meanwhile medics are treating a Black person who was shot (less-lethal) directly in the chest, over the heart. He's ok
