Portland Mob Pulls Driver from Car, Brutally Knocks Him Unconscious

Share

The raw violence of the predatory mobs that roam the streets of Portland, Oregon, to mete out whatever brand of brutal justice they see fit was captured Sunday in a series of social media videos that show a man being beaten after a confrontation with demonstrators.

The beginnings of the incident were lost in a fog of contradictory allegations, with some claiming the driver of a truck tried to assault protesters, who have laid claim to the streets of Portland now that their power to destroy is minimally contested by city authorities.

In trying to sift through the claims, Oregon Live reported that it was told by Portland Police spokesman Sgt. Kevin Allen that officers were acting on the understanding that the mob had chased the driver of a truck, who then crashed into a light pole.

“Officers encountered a hostile crowd and a squad from the Rapid Response Team (RRT) responded to help secure the scene while the investigation was underway. The driver was transported to the hospital by ambulance with serious injuries. The incident is under investigation and no arrests have been made,” police said in a news release.

The videos highlight the horrifying extent to which rampant brutality has been unleashed.

The incident, which began at about 10:30 p.m., ended when an ambulance arrived to take the man, whose identity was not released by police, to a hospital.

The truck was later towed from the scene.

The incident took place on the 81st consecutive night of unrest in Portland.

The continual violence left some demanding political leaders act.

Earlier Sunday, in a release about the violence that took place in Portland on Saturday night, Portland police highlighted the impact to the city of the concentrated police presence in downtown Portland.

“At the time of this release over 60 calls for police service were holding around the city. Some had been holding for the length of the events described here. Call types ranged from theft, vandalism, suspicious activity, hazards, hit and run, burglary, violation of restraining order, alarms, stolen cars, harassment and many others,” Portland police said in a release.
