Well if you watch the mainstream media, even Fox News, they’re telling you that these are mostly “peaceful” protests. As you can see from the headline, nothing could be further from the truth of this insane Marxist movement against America.
A Portland, Ore. woman was shot and wounded in a hail of 150 bullets on Saturday night — and neighbors are blaming police reform as violent crimes rise in the city, according to reports.
Local police said several occupied apartments and vehicles were hit with gunfire along the 600 block of NE 87th Street, with one slug striking the woman in her arm.
“Responding officers applied a tourniquet and she was transported to the hospital by ambulance with what are believed to be non-life-threatening injuries,” Portland police said in a release. “No other injuries have been reported to police, however bullets struck at least 8 occupied apartments and 7 vehicles (unknown if occupied).”
The gunplay happened as Black Lives Matters protesters took to the streets for the 65th straight day, with demonstrations remaining relatively peaceful compared to past clashes between protesters and police and federal officers, The Oregonian reported.
Police did not tie the shooting to the demonstrations — with one resident telling Fox that it likely had more to do with strained police resources and defunding law enforcement.
“They had a gang violence task force that are no longer funded, which is unfortunate because as soon as that defunding happened all of this really peaked up,” resident Kemoh Sulimani told the station.
Another resident of the apartment complex called it “a war zone.”
“This is America and it’s a war zone with 150 shots in an apartment complex close to a Christian university,” Aragon Marks told Fox. “How can we explain that?”
Portland has seen an uptick in violent crime over the past three months, with 167 shootings reported over that time, compared to 96 in 2019. The numbers peaking in July with 67 violent crimes — up from 28 over the same month last year, KATU-TV reported.
