For John, BLUF: If Government isn't about helping Citizens, it is just a drain on the Rate Payers. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From The Washington Times, by Reporter Valerie Richardson, s14 October 2018.
Here is the lede:
Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler came under fire over a viral video showing Antifa protesters blocking traffic and harassing drivers, but he says he supports the decision by police to watch from a distance without getting involved.Commuting has enough challenges without folks deliberately disrupting the flow of traffic.
On the other hand, local police and public officials showing a lack of willingness to confront and control demonstrators without the proper paperwork is just negligence and dereliction of duty. Replacement would seem in order.
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
