The violence in Portland has gotten so bad that even the leftist mayor is asking for 200 more police officers to be hired in the next couple of years.
Why, though, would anyone want to be a cop in Portland, given the hatred for police in the city? Additionally, when police in Portland are not allowed to do their jobs, and instead, the city lets Antifa run rampant, who would want to live there, let alone be a police officer there?
You may remember this is the same mayor who was essentially trapped in his own apartment because of protesters sitting outside his apartment complex.
After the George Floyd killing, leftist mayors and city council members moved to defund police budgets, and in some cases, they moved to disband police departments altogether. For example, in Minneapolis on election day, voters rejected a proposal to disband the police department completely.
Portland itself is seeing a massive spike in crime, and it’s no wonder the mayor is looking to increase the police force. The crime has gotten so bad that even the FBI says the crime in Portland is way higher than normal.
It’s no wonder why the Portland mayor wants more police in his town.
The real question is, will the mayor let the police do their job? Will he let them get the Antifa thugs under control who continue to harass citizens in Portland?
Never forget that many of these leftist elites, you shouldn’t have a firearm to protect yourself.
