Portland rioter smashes power source with baseball bat

Early Friday morning, KGW reported that a “mostly peaceful” anti-Trump protest in Portland, Oregon, was declared a riot by police in the wake of numerous acts of violence and criminal activity.

According to KGW:

It was the third straight night people took to the streets to voice their opposition to Trump’s election. At around 8:30 p.m., Portland police, who took a hands-off approach the previous two nights, tweeted the protest was considered a riot “due to extensive criminal and dangerous behavior.”

The crowd remained mostly peaceful until demonstrators met with an anarchist group that scheduled an 8 p.m. rally at Holladay City Park. Police estimated there were as many as 4,000 protesters.

Multiple acts of vandalism then took place in Northeast Portland. Protesters tagged buildings, kick cars, shattered an office building window and knocked out power.

Here’s video posted by KGW:

Another video shows a rioter beating a power source with a baseball bat:

Nineteen vehicles at the Toyota of Portland on Northeast Broadway Street were also vandalized:

Rioters also tried to tried to take over Interstate 5, but police were able to prevent them from doing so.

“What you saw was anarchist individuals,” said Sgt. Pete Simpson of Portland Police Department.

Drivers were also attacked and one woman’s windshield was smashed when she tried to get around the crowd:

President-elect Donald Trump responded:

It’s more than unfair — it’s illegal.

As we reported earlier this morning, two Portland residents filed a ballot measure to have Oregon secede from the Union.

Oregon Live reported:

A new activist group galvanized by Trump’s election was among those demonstrating Thursday in Portland. Dubbed Portland’s Resistance and composed of students and youth from protests that took over freeways Wednesday morning and night, spokesman Gregory McKelvey said the organization will use anti-Trump efforts to prop up local movements.

Protest chants included the rallying call of “Not my president,” in reference to the newly elected Trump. Some protesters carried signs, among them: “Oppression thrives off isolation. Stand united.” “We reject the fascist agenda.” “You’re fired!”

So much for accepting the results of Tuesday’s election…
