Be a shame if rioters show up to the Portland DA and Mayors homes next weekend.
Portlanders wanted it , they got it. And they’re going to get it deservedly so!



The Rapid Response Team, a unit within the Portland police department, voted unanimously to resign on Wednesday during a meeting with the police union. This follows the criminal indictment of an officer for assault stemming from a riot in August 2020, sources within the police bureau told The Post Millennial.

Officer Corey Budworth was on the Rapid Response Team, a group police officers that volunteer for the post, and are deployed to respond to riots, civil unrest, and demonstrations in Portland. Budworth was indicted and charged with one count of fourth degree assault, a misdemeanor by Multnomah District Attorney Mike Schmidt’s office on Tuesday.

On the night of August 18, 2020, Antifa militants threw a Molotov cocktail into the County Sheriff’s Department Headquarters as the Rapid Response Team struggled to contain the riot.

In a statement released after the indictment, Schmidt said “In this case, we allege that no legal justification existed for Officer Budworth’s deployment of force, and that the deployment of force was legally excessive under the circumstances.”

“Now that the riot team is no more, we have no clue what’s going to happen. We don’t have enough patrol officers to be pulled from the road to handle huge crowds,” a Portland police officer said. “We are only backups with no gear like the riot team has.”

This is ahead of massive demonstrations and protests that are planned for this upcoming weekend.

This is how leftists get their people killed.

Soon you'll see the police quitting with no one to replace them

If they are unable to act within the law they should resign. Good on them.
I’m not familiar with the case. Tell us what the cop did.
Or is every prosecution only against guilty people?
Be careful how you answer that, because it may not fit your narrative nor reality.

And then the next natural step - citizens fill the void and vigilantism becomes the norm in Portland.
Lots of rope, trees and light poles in Portland.

Someone throws a gasoline bomb at you/your house. You smack them around in response.

YOU somehow wind up in jail on charges rather than the aggressors.

Seems logical.... *facepalm*

Whether you understand the idea or not, laws apply to all. I find it really sad those who argue that we can't have a police force unless we are willing to allow them to violate our rights.

That is a clear sign of a failed state.

I have no idea. He is being prosecuted for assault. The force resigned over that. If they do not support the process, like I said, resign, it's the thing to do.

So you would not stand up for/defend yourself or your family/friends if it ment committing a dreaded misdemeanor.

What a pathetic individual you are

A vast meaningless generalization. A person has a right to defend themselves. You are trying to mix the legal with the illegal. There is a vast gulf between defense and assault.

So you have no idea but assume guilt just because he’s a cop.
There you have it folks, Leftardism in full glory.

Except you can choke a cop to try to get his gun and it’s murder when the cop shoots his assaulter in self defense.

There you have it folks, Leftardism in full glory!

"When that line is crossed, and a police officer's use of force is excessive and lacks a justification under the law, the integrity of our criminal justice system requires that we as prosecutors act as a mechanism for accountability,"

Portland police officer indicted on assault charge over alleged use of force at George Floyd protest

It seemed he smacked a member of the press upside her head with his baton while she was trying to record what was going on. He was not in any way defending himself.

So did you support the shooting of Ashli Babbot?

I assumed nothing. I never said he was guilty. I commented on the idea that if you are not willing to live within the laws set up, the correct thing to do is resign.

But when you can't actually address what I say, make up a position for me for you to argue against so you think you accomplished something.

The officer will get due process.

Hit a supposed member of the press with a BATON on purpose?

Do you believe that?

Go back to the original Jan 6 thread. In it I state that I saw absolutely no reason for her to have been shot and it really makes no sense to me and I"ve stated that the family deserves a better explanation than they have got so far.
