Portland protesters use rope from flag to lock cops in Precinct.
Protesters in Portland have marched every day for the past three weeks following the death of Floyd, a black man in Minneapolis who died after a white police officer knelt on his neck for several minutes.
Earlier, Florida swat team resign over “Political Climate” and prioritizing safety of dogs over team members.
And now, over the weekend, two Portland-based journalists were also injured while covering the protests against police brutality.
The Portland Police tweeted Tuesday:
The group at the Justice Center has shifted to the 2nd Avenue side. Some individuals are tampering with the entry and exit doors. This is a fire safety hazard causing a serious safety concern for those in the Justice Center. Remove the items now!
Portland Protesters Use Rope From Flag To Lock Cops In Precinct
The front door to Central Precinct was locked from the outside with the u-lock. It had to be cut off from the outside so those inside could leave. The rope was taken by protesters from the flag pole and tied to the roll-up doors on the Southeast corner of the building.
Locking the Justice Center from the outside presented serious life safety concerns for the adults in custody and employees inside the building. The demonstrators have moved away from the building and the doors are re-opened.
The burning flag injured one person, according to the police, though the person’s name was not revealed.
