Mayor Bill de Blasio signs sweeping police reform legislation into law
Hundreds of Back The Blue supporters outside Seattle City hall supporting @SeattlePD.
Militarized Federal Agents from a patchwork of outside agencies have begun policing Portland (in rented minivans vans) without the explicit approval of the mayor, the state, or local municipalities.
Pres Trump announces that Federal Govt has indicted some MS-13 leaders on terrorism charges. "That's a first," he says, asserting it gives prosecutors extra strength against the gangs. Calls MS-13 a "vile and evil gang of people."

Spotted some feds hiding in the bushes of the Wyatt federal building. I have the video centered on an arm of one of them who decided to go super stealth mode when he noticed me recording
Most people are in the parks hanging out and having a chill evening. Some barricades came up. Protester on megaphone is is telling feds to release protesters, calls charges based on entrapment, calls for charges to be dropped against protesters

About 250 people in the parks and street around the Justice Center. Some folks giving speeches on a megaphone.

Large public events will be banned in Philadelphia through the end of February. Banned events include parades, concerts, fairs and block parties
Portland Police declared a riot last night outside the Portland Police Association on North Lombard. From what I can tell on a live stream of the protest, it looks like police did use tear gas, or something similar, to clear the crowd.
Being moved back again from earlier
This is what the Portland Police used as the justification to declare a riot and deploy horrendous violence against a crowd. A cop knocked a protester's phone into the window of the Police Union building, breaking its window
This guy was real into aiming for heads from earlier
Street party vibe happening now
Based on my 7/4 experience, they think "a safe distance" is nearly a block away
This is the second time the statue has been vandalized in two months. @WPXI Petition circulating calling for the Christopher Columbus statue to be removed or placed into a museum.

Riot declared, third tear gas warning
The police have moved up and arrested somebody for unclear reasons
LBRAD is back. Since traffic is not being blocked in any way that constitutes a hazard, this order is still legally suspect
For no real reason, the LRAD guy declares that people are not allowed to be on the street anymore. He promises to fuck the crowd up if they stay in the road
Some activists approach one of the only policemen actually wearing a face mask. They ask him if he will be arresting his coworkers, as it is presently illegal to be unmasked in situations where social distancing is impossible
A tear gas warning has been given. Leave the area of Lombard and Campbell immediately
One activist walks down the police line with photos of her son, asking the police if they'd brutalize him the way they have many protesters. One female cop finds this too much to bear, and pulls away from the line, overwhelmed by either shame or anger
Selective arrests being made on Lombard. Crowd started to move out of street and when officers returned to the sidewalk, people returned to the street. Lombard is open to vehicular traffic; get out of the street or you are subject to arrest, force, or munitions

North Portland, Oregon, USA. On North Lombard Street.
Warnings to clear Lombard's roadway
Contractors are installing plywood over the PPA building's windows. I wonder who will be paying for this as the PPA is a private building. The LRAD guy just yelled at us because someone threw a water bottle. I suspect this will be used as the justification for horrible violence
