  1. Hi all, I’m Evan Hill, one of the lead reporters on this piece. We first noticed something very strange was going on in Portland when Oregon Public Broadcasting published a story about federal officers pulling protesters into unmarked vehicles on July 16. We started looking through hundreds of videos posted to social media by both protesters and freelance journalists on the ground. What we found was that federal officers had not stopped the unrest – they’d inflamed it. While protesters were shooting fireworks and throwing (or occasionally slingshotting) items at them, they were responding by blanketing the streets in tear gas, shooting people with pepperballs and less lethal projectiles – sometimes causing severe injuries – and attacking medics and members of the media. More than two dozen people now face federal charges, including assault for shining laser pointers at officers, which carries a maximum 8-year sentence. Activists and local officials across the country worry that this could be a test case for the Trump administration.

  2. Propaganda. I saw non bias youtube livessteams of people trying to burn down buildings with people inside them. These people are not peacefully in there homes hanging out there out in the streets burning stuff down at least 85 percent of them. Your basically in a battle field when u go out in these riots you idiots.

  3. To the mean Trump, who seeks only his political ambitions through social conflict and division, he must use the right to resistance, one of the natural rights of the people guaranteed by the Constitution right now. As you can see from the corona crisis, how innocent lives are being sacrificed poorly just for the political position of the Trump individual. Trump is a sleazy trader who has no qualification as a leade.

  4. This has been hijacked. Not cause by fed officers they have been trying to burn it down already tried it once. They have mandate to protect them. The Portland police is failing to do anything because the mayor told them to stand downs.
    The protesters come out because the protesters burn throw Clorox fire works.
    Journalism is dead this man has a clear bias.
    Andy ngo is a good one to view an opposing view on what’s going on to get a bigger picture !!!!

  5. Here let me fix that for you

    "61st day of terrorism and attacks on federal property and workers, as well as personal property and regular citizens."

    Your welcome slapnuts

    Semper Fi

  6. These are not protesters, they are terroists!! Mr. Commentator the federal agents are their to protect federal property from being burned to the ground! Are you really that stupid to realize this? I say you are!

  7. I made u win the election Nd see u didn’t disappoint me by boy trump keep up the good work and divide the people and I will be one step closer towards my ultimate goal “American segregation” yours Only VLADIMIR PUTIN

  8. It's just frozen water bottles man!
    It's just fire works, c'mon!
    Oh please, it's just a fire inside the Police Association.
    Yeah, they lit a fire inside the North Police Precinct building and blocked all the exits with people inside.. what's your point?
    It's just Molotov cocktails c'mon!
    So they found a duffel bag full of AR-15 magazines and Molotov cocktails so what?

    Evan, this is a marxist attempt to bankrupt the city of Portland but you already know that– you share the same believes they do.

  9. I am so sick of the media acting like people trying for a month to burn down a federal court house for months now are just peaceful protesters. so tired of the media down fanning the flames of hate and blaming it on the president and people that signed their lives to maintaining law and order. keep it up because America is getting fed up and a full on civil war is on the way. this is all manipulation by the democratic party because they'd rather see the country burn than help the current white house administration. these 'protesters' are folks that have no critical thinking skills and they are being lead like sheep to a slaughter. watch and see!!!

  10. Peaceful protestors? Really you are blinded by left ideology and communist propoganda. They are burning down buildings and looting stores, shooting cops and other people. These fake protestors should be put in Jail for long time

  11. My NEW ORGANIZATION to DEFEND the American DREAM — S.P.I.T.

    S.P.I.T. = SAVE PEOPLE IN TROUBLE = S.P.I.T.

    DEFEND YOUR RIGHTS TO THE SAME HEALTH CARE AS THE RICH

    S.P.I.T. = SAVE PEOPLE IN TROUBLE = S.P.I.T.

  12. Takes a certain kind of coward to abuse power like that while hiding behind a mask. Absolute disgrace to all military personnel that these losers can wear the same uniform.
