From the report:

Email records obtained by The Oregonian/OregonLive detail some of the insults and taunting that several nonwhite federal officers say they endured. The newsroom is not publishing officers’ names by request of the Federal Protective Services, which cited safety concerns if identities are revealed. The agency did not respond to a request for comment.

But it’s not just emails that document this abuse.

Reporter Andy Ngo, who is covering the protest in Portland, confirms the account, saying “This is something I witnessed”:
