Portland police, now some of which are Federal Deputies, didn’t even wait for the protest to begin last night before accosting BLM protesters. Without cause or warrant, they searched citizens and seized their property. This after a weekend where police protected and safely escorted an armed paramilitary group called the Proud Boys.
