As we told you yesterday, Portland Ore. police responded to rioting and arson by attempting to appease those taking part in it (which only made the problems worse).
Rioters were back at it last night, and the Portland Police took to Twitter to tell them to knock it off:
Some demonstrators have locked the doors from the outside of the Justice Center and are lighting fires on 2nd Avenue. They are also tampering with the roll up doors of the Justice Center on 2nd Avenue. This is a life safety issue. Remove the items now!

Well good luck with that.
I'm sorry, aren't you literally the police? https://t.co/gKJ8NlfCob

There could be another option:
has anybody considered sending in a few social workers? https://t.co/d73MgolW3a

That seems to be “Plan B” for many these days (looking at you, Minneapolis City Council).
You should call the cops. https://t.co/4O8DJE1VDd

If only there was a group of well-trained individuals who were responsible for directly responding to such crimes. https://t.co/cHWHJgNBon

Just like Elizabeth Warren told poor communities who wanted to send their children to better schools citizens are now expected to both pay the salaries of public employees AND do their jobs for them. https://t.co/szKZ6edFTj

Maybe you ought to issue a strongly-worded tweet. That ought to help. https://t.co/an8WfuJ0w8

Portland police tweeting for people to stop committing crimes instead of doing something about it. Why am I not surprised? https://t.co/tu5ZUSfOV7

It might help if you started calling them what they are, criminals. https://t.co/aPNRJIVr75
