VIDEO: 'You’re A P---y B---h,' Protesters Block Streets, Harass Portland Cops

"All cops are bastards!" a group of anti-police activists chanted in the streets of downtown Portland on Tuesday.

Portland, OR – Protesters gathered in downtown Portland on Election Day to denounce law enforcement officers and demand the abolition of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (videos below).

Journalist and photographer Any Ngo captured video footage of the haphazard protest.

“All cops are bastards!” the group sang during one video clip.

In addition to complaining about ICE and cursing at police officers in the area, some demonstrators went off about vaguely related topics, including domestic violence, the persecution of Native Americans, and their anti-President Trump beliefs.

At one point, three apparent demonstration leaders lost the crowd that had been following them, when the group abruptly veered off onto a side route, the video showed.

“Oh. They’re going the wrong way,” one of the leaders said with confusion, as she watched them march off.

A protester wearing an “anarchy” hat hid his face behind his “cops beat their wives” sign, while he explained to Ngo why his message was important, another video showed.

“There’s a statistic that 40 percent of police – and this is what is reported – that they beat their wives,” said the man, who refused to provide his name. “And that’s just what’s reported.”

“I thought it was an important message to get out because a lot of people don’t know that,” he added.

He didn't provide a source for his made-up statistic.

Several uniformed police officers passed by the group and proceeded across the street, at which point they were accosted and taunted by the activists.

“Jaywalkers!” several demonstrators yelled, while one member of the group followed the officers to the opposite side of the roadway.

“You’re not f--king funny, n----r!” the man yelled. “You’re a p---y b---h!”

“He likes to laugh and stuff like that, but doesn’t want to talk!” the protester said, pointing at one of the officers as the line of police stood silently.

“Alright so I’m gonna leave you alone,” the protester continued. “But I just want you to learn this lesson: Don’t start s--t you can’t handle, little guy.”

In another clip, the group marched down the middle of the street and along sidewalks while chanting “Abolish ICE!” and “F--k DHS!”

“F--k Donald Trump!” and “ICE out of Portland!” were also common refrains.

Other protesters stood in the road, blocking vehicles as they attempted to pass through.

According to Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, at least six groups were expected to converge in downtown Portland on Tuesday night, and none of them obtained a permit.

“[Portland police] reached out to them to have a conversation,” Wheeler tweeted on Tuesday morning. “They have not yet responded."

It was unclear whether any arrests were made during the demonstrations.

On Oct. 15, Wheeler announced a proposed city ordinance that would allow him – as the city’s police commissioner – to tell protesters when, how, and where they would be allowed to protest.

The proposal is expected to be debated by the Portland City Council on Thursday, The Oregonian reported.

Wheeler proposed the new ordinance following a history of violent street brawls between antifa and Patriot Prayer.

It's not clear if the Portland Police Bureau will actually enforce this law against antifa when Patriot Prayer isn't around, as the department refused to intervene as antifa threatened motorists in the past.

The city’s lack of response to some of the demonstrators’ lawlessness has raised the question about who is actually running things.

On Oct. 8, video was captured of masked antifa members directing traffic on Portland streets, telling regular citizens where they could and could not go.

“This is the type of street anarchy that routinely happens where I live,” Ngo wrote in a tweet along with videos of the chaos. “Here is video…showing Antifa directing traffic in downtown and threatening people who don’t obey with violence.”

“Mayor @tedwheeler, who really runs this town?” Ngo wrote.

Antifa took over city streets in Portland and blocked traffic, threatened drivers, and damaged an elderly man’s vehicle while officers stood on the fringes and did not intervene, the video showed.

In late October, Portland Police Association President Officer Daryl Turner called out the city council for its lack of support for officers during this time of violent political protests, The Oregonian reported.

In a Facebook post, Officer Turner called Portland “one of the most politically violent cities in America.”

“Lawlessness, aggression, and violence have replaced peaceful protests,” the president of the police union wrote. “In a harshly divided nation, we have become a stark example of what happens when fringe groups get exactly what they ask for with their grandstanding – attention.”

Officer Turner’s Facebook post accused elected officials of failing to embrace common sense opportunities in response to the violence at protests.

“We have seen a similar failure with the handling of the recent protests in downtown Portland and the City's proposed policy changes in response to violence at protests,” Officer Turner wrote. “It's time for City Council to quit sitting on their hands and openly and collectively decry the violence and destruction forced upon the many and caused by a few.”

He wrote that protesters believe they can “harass, assault, and victimize” people at will without threat of being arrested, indicted, or convicted.

Officer Turner objected to police officials’ management of the violent demonstrations.

When the Portland Police Bureau faced criticism for not arresting the antifa members who took over the city’s intersections, their excuse for ordering officers to stand down was that introducing law enforcement to a crowd of people engaged in illegal activity could "change the demeanor of the crowd for the worse."

The police union president didn’t see it the same way.

“Our job as law enforcement is to protect the public and enforce the law. People who endanger or victimize others should be held accountable for their actions,” Officer Turner said.

The police union’s president referenced guidance from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals as a “simple solution.”

“Let's be clear: police officers work to uphold the Constitution, including the right to free speech,” Officer Turner wrote. “When protests are peaceful, it's our job to ensure that our community can say their piece and say it without fear of violence.”

“But when violence erupts at a protest, it is incumbent on the Police Bureau to step in and stop the violence through arrests. And, in turn, it is incumbent on our criminal justice system to ensure wrongdoers are held accountable for their person and property crimes,” he posted.

He blamed a culture of enablement, the restriction of enforcement, criticism of police tactics whether they act or not, and “an over-emphasis on de-escalation and disengagement” for Portland’s current situation.

Officer Turner called on the city’s lawmakers to get their acts together.

“It's time to draw a line in the sand and let people know that unequivocally, there will be no violence accepted in peaceful protests,” he wrote. “And our City Council must support our officers when we act to preserve public safety.”

“But I just want you to learn this lesson: Don’t start s--t you can’t handle, little guy.”

It's a good thing the cop didn't say, "Boo!" or the bad ass would have crapped his pants.

If you want to put a huge dent in the number of "protesters" (rioters) then make it an arrestable offence to wear a mask during a protest. A lot less people will be willing to go and be violent when they know they are identifiable.

I've had heard it said that a sure sign an argument has been totally lost is when you have to pull out the Nazi card or the racism one. Apparently the "Abolish ICE" groups have sunk to that level. Of course that's not really surprising at all!

Officer Turner is absolutely correct. He did not come out and say it, but the politicians in Portland are condoning these thugs by their lack of action.

Just thankful I don't live in Portland The land of the Living Left Dead, Thankful not to be living in Oregon period! It's hard to believe that this keeps happening over and over and nothing is done about it. These thugs feel empowered by the lack of city and state enforcement. Make it against the law to wear masks and carry anything that could be construed as a weapon. These thugs have the IQ of a salamander

For those of us who live in or near Portland - Don't spend any money in Portland!!!! I went to the Expo center today for the local RV Show. I went out of my way to buy gas BEFORE I went into that city. I have done my best to NEVER spend any money in that city. Maybe when the business determine that they could do better they will leave the downtown area desolate. Then they can protest in the street all they want.

Portland is a cesspool. It is beyond redemption. I continue to be amazed that the city of Portland can recruit and retain any law enforcement officers.

Are protestors by law allowed to block public thoroughfares ie; streets in Portland? In CA, Southern CA area, our CHP moved hundreds of protestors off the freeway. Are they not required to remain on the sidewalk, is this true of Oregon? The abuse our L/E nationally has to put up with daily...….hose them all down with a hose connected to a fire hydrant.

There's a 2-story loft building in Bushwick, Brooklyn, New York, where a number of ANTIFA members reside. ANTIFA are a terrorist organization. The same ANTIFA that terrorized the Upper East Side (NYC) Republican Club (smashing window, glueing locks, spray painting graffiti, writing and leaving threatening notes on the door), the same ANTIFA terrorists who terrorized Tucker Carlson's place of residence, terrorizing his wife, live at this address: 538 Johnson Avenue, Brooklyn, New York 11237. Please alert the NYC police department and the NYC offices of the FBI. ANTIFA is a terrorist organization and there terrorism will only grow bigger until they are stopped with a show of force and punished to the full extent of the law as the terrorists they are.

the reason cops dont intervene is because they dont intervene in more heinous crimes instigated by white power activists. this is literally petty bs compared to what white nationalists do.
