Threats from homeless reported…

As the old saying goes, a liberal is just someone who hasn’t been victimized yet. And the rather disquieting happenings in a Portland, Oregon suburb very well may prove that particular adage to be true.

Reporter Maggie Vespa of Portland’s KGW television notes that dozens of “homeless campers” are making themselves to home in the up-and-coming Lents neighborhood of Southeast Portland.

Long known as one of the dependably über-liberal bastions in the already über-liberal Beaver State, Oregon has a Democrat governor, both senators are Democrats, as well as 4-out-5 House representatives members of the Jackass Party.


But back to reality visiting itself on some of the good people of Portland, Vespa cites that a number of upset, albeit anonymous, residents of Lents are fairly peeved that the ODOT (Oregon Department of Transportation) has cleared out a bushel-load of campers sans homes from their makeshift camps located under the overpasses along Interstate 205 in the historical as well as hipster-heavy Woodstock area of Portland.

As reported in part;

This week, dozens of homeless campers flooded a Southeast Portland neighborhood, according to residents.

They say it happened the day after officials cleared campers out of a far more public space. Now, these neighbors in Lents feel dumped on and some have had enough.

“They steal stuff off of our porch, out of our yard,” said one neighbor.

Resides say it happened Thursday. A small homeless camp, already fluctuating in size, simply blew up. Dozens came with tents and tarps. Neighbors, who were afraid to show their faces on camera, called police and took photos to the city.

They say some of the campers threatened them.

“It doesn’t feel safe. You should feel safe to come out and be in your own front yard,” one neighbor said.

“Then they put the rocks on the actual side of the sidewalk,” another neighbor said.

The rocks that neighbor is referring to are ones the Oregon Department of Transportation placed under the Interstate 205 overpass at Southeast Woodstock to keep homeless campers out. The next day, dozens of homeless campers showed up, according to neighbors.
