This is how a sorry excuse for a police department excuses itself

The Police Bureau recognizes that crowd control events that impact traffic are complex incidents that are extremely dangerous. During today's event, officers recognized that demonstrators were distraught about the loss of a loved one and the officers attempted to provide direction to the protesters without enflaming the situation.

The initial mission today was to ensure the safety of those people demonstrating and other community members traveling on the roadways. Police established detours as additional resources were called to the scene to assist with directing the protesters off the street and onto the sidewalk.
'assist with directing' means 'let the communist protesters take over, threaten and abuse people, vandalize their cars; but anyone who doesn't do what they say, THEM we'll arrest.'

Screw Portland, let the place sink.

I think you need to look at the actions of Portland's (Democratic) mayor, who specifically instructed the Portland Police Bureau not to interfere in the "demonstrations".

And yes, the Democratic Citizens of Portland elected this poltard.

My guess: there weren't enough PPB officers who voted for him to make any difference in the election.
