This guy is an idiot and a very weak man IMHO!
Portland Mayor Charlie Hales and police Chief Mike Marshman urged Portlanders to stay home instead of joining anti-Trump protests, saying they had been hijacked by people promoting violence.
Marshman said officers were locked in a "battle" with elements of the crowd. He said police had been targets of thrown rocks and fireworks, though no officers had been injured by protesters.
He also characterized Saturday's early-morning shooting of a protester on the Morrison Bridge as the type of incident police are trying to avoid.
Hales said residents should continue to patronize Portland businesses. He also urged Portlanders frustrated with the results of Tuesday's election to channel that feeling into support of liberal causes.
