(ThePatriotSource.com)- It should come as no surprise that Portland, the home of hipsters and Antifa activists, is just one of the many cities in the United States that has fallen victim to the senseless violence and riots in the name of the death of George Floyd.
Rioters across the country are using the tragic death of Floyd, a result of former cop Derek Chauvin kneeling on his neck for eight minutes during an arrest, as an excuse to riot and burn down properties. Portland’s Police Department building and the Justice Center have no been burned to the ground by these rioters.
Andy Ngo, the editor-at-large of the Post Millennial who is notorious for his reporting on left-wing violence, reported that the Justice Center was “under attack” at 2:10 a.m. on Saturday morning.
“Militants had been setting up camp there for more than a day. Now they all act,” he added, with the #antifa and #BlackLivesMatter hashtags.
The Justice Center, which houses the @PortlandPolice precinct and sheriff’s office, is now under attack. Militants had been setting up camp there for more than a day. Now they all act. #antifa #BlackLivesMatter https://t.co/T9HwWs2e2m

Just ten minutes later, the Justice Center was on fire. The destruction was live-streamed from KGW, a local news station, which also showed people storming the Pioneer Place Mall. Shops were looted, fires were started in the street and in dumpsters, and people got away with thousands of dollars’ worth of designer clothes and other items.

Louis Vitton was broken into, and protesters pretending to be fighting for justice for George Floyd, took the opportunity to steal some designer clothes.
Riots have broken out all over America and far-left Black Lives Matter activists have already begun protesting in London. The more shops are looted the clearer it becomes that the protest isn’t so much about stopping police brutality, which these activists think is focused squarely at black people and nobody else, but more about opportunism and getting free stuff.
