PORTLAND, Ore. – Mayor Ted Wheeler was tear-gassed by federal officers along with a large crowd of protesters late Wednesday night after he tried for hours to calm angry activists demanding police reform from City Hall and calling for federal authorities to withdraw from this mostly liberal, mostly white city.

The mayor was caught in a chaotic display of violence and mayhem that began around 11:15 p.m., after protesters threw flaming bags of garbage over a fence protecting the federal courthouse, prompting officers to fire tear gas at the crowd.

Wheeler had spent many hours in the thick of the protest, attempting to answer questions from the crowd, which booed and jeered as he tried to explain a lengthy process for making changes. He acknowledged that he's a "white, privileged male."

"Obviously, we have a long way to go," Wheeler said. "Everyone here has a job to do, all of us."

  4. The protesters have began using pulse lasers to blind people. This isn’t even allowed in war. It’s no longer a protest it’s a dangerous riot.

      Proof? Sounds like a nutty consperacy theory. If we want to look as right as we are we can’t go in with nutty theory’s they have to be real.

    • The police and army needs snipers with cameras, snipers to shoot the laser pointers and rifle cams to record the incident to validate the person with the laser was violating not the USA law but world law.

      As if civilians can even get weapons like that without being tracked down by feds. Those must be agent provacateurs.

    • @Kaijsa Dragonborn You can buy extremely powerful lasers online or you can make one yourself with a laser diode and high amp batter pack, like a lipo. It’s extremely easy, and your eyes are very easy to burn out.

    • Why yes, yes it is.
      Next question?

    • Yes it is. These globalist are trying to take over the country using ANT FA trained globalist terrorist and radicalized feminist. Very violent. CHAZ in seattle washington can be seen as what they want. 6 people were shot and two killed. Rioters walked around with guns and extorted businesses for money . Would not let police in to help gunshot victims. Citizens were at mercy of CHAZ as sell out democratic governor and mayor did nothing but help CHAZ terrorist until Terrorist marched on the mayors house.

    Okay to use tear gas.
    *Not* okay to use most hand sanitizers.

      This channel will do anything just to make President Trump look bad especially when it comes to election.

  8. Federal agents can protect federal buildings at all costs,I’m not even in the US and even I know this.

    • It’s just American media trying to fcck over the American people for a globalist agenda that they sold out to a long time ago.
      No worries, as we Americans in general are not buying it one bit 😉

    That did not answer the question ! Is it illegal ?

    • Yes it is ,. MAny other sites will quote which act. Need to fire mayor and governor though, not protecting citizens and property. that was what they were hired to do.

  17. Federal property BELONGS to the American Tax Payers and the federal government gets paid by the American Tax Payers!

    BS MSM lies and propaganda. USA TODAY is contributing to creating the false narrative. And Americans at large are not falling for it.

    ofcourse usa today is bias against protecting federal property and arresting those violent attackers in the act . usa today only cites the disingenuous critiques but not citing the violent acts by antifa

  20. Only an idiot would ask this question. Everyone that has any intellect knows they can
