In NYC, extremists fight while NYPD watches; in Portland OR, Antifa shuts downtown and harasses drivers while police do nothing after a police shooting and while a "prayer group" meets
We see increasing combativeness in some cities by both the extreme Left and some of the alt-Right, and police departments look the other way.
In NYC, the “Proud boys” beat up the far-Left (Antifa?) activists who vandalized a GOP facility, BuzzFeed story
And Portland Or radical Left protestors closed down traffic without a permit after shooting, and harassed a 74-year old man who tried to drive past him. The Portland mayor supported the police after the fact, with no real explanation, as in a Washington Times story. There seems to have been more than one incident. A right wing “prayer group” seems to have triggered one of them. Around Sept. 30 the shooting of Patrick Kimmons triggered other demonstrations (Oregon Live, OPB).
