After over three straight months of nightly rioting Portland, Oregon, the city’s Mayor Ted Wheeler has seen enough of what he allowed to develop:
Everyone deserves to feel safe in their community.
This is what we’re all supposed to be fighting for. But last night saw more senseless violence in Portland. Another minority-owned, local business was destroyed by a violent group of individuals.

Among those who obviously didn’t feel safe in his community was Wheeler himself, who is packing to live in a different location:

Not long ago activists occupied Wheeler’s apartment building and demanded he resign, among other things. Instead Wheeler’s moving.
Brit Hume had a better idea that would be a sign of responsible leadership, which means Wheeler won’t entertain the idea:
And thereby expose a new set of neighbors to the mob? Maybe he could simply decide it’s time to shut down the rioting and accept whatever help is needed to do it. https://t.co/eLeqs7vUAn

We won’t hold our breath waiting for Wheeler to demonstrate any actual leadership.

How about protecting all of the people instead of those living close by to him . He is a big failure.

Also, remember when indicated that the violence would stop after federal authorities left? Good times.
