Portland becoming a cesspool of Marxism

Via Bearing Arms comes this

In Portland, though, that doesn’t seem to be the case.

Scores of the 500 people who were arrested during the nearly 75 days of violent Portland riots will have their charges dropped by the new Black Lives Matter-approved district attorney.

Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt announced that his default position is not to prosecute and that most crimes by rioters will be forgiven and forgotten.

That list of crimes includes interfering with a police officer, disorderly conduct, and rioting.

-interfering with a police officer
-disorderly conduct
-criminal trespass
-harassment
-escape in the 3rd degree
-riot (somtimes in some circumstances)

Attacks on police officers and resisting arrest will be scrutinized based on whether – and we’re not making this up – police caused rioters to react because they used tear gas or other crowd-control measures causing rioters to “instinctively lash out.”

Sweet dancing baby Elvis on a cold-fusion-powered surfboard, really?

Schmidt is actually taking the “look what you made me do” defense seriously?

After all, this is precisely what he’s arguing. He’s claiming that police using well-proven crowd-control techniques on rioters somehow makes it their fault if those rioters hurt them.

There really are no words are there?
