US Attorney Slams Portland Leaders

(TheConservativeNews.org) – Portland, Oregon, has been a hotbed of criminal activity for the last two months. As a result, federal authorities were sent to the city to protect government-owned property. That angered many local Democratic leaders, who reacted by banning their police officers from working with the feds. Now, the US attorney for the state is lashing out. 

In an interview with The Oregonian, published on July 26, US Attorney Billy J. Williams for the District of Oregon called the decision by city leaders “nonsensical, political theater.” He went on to say residents in the city need to stand up and demand the “violent extremists,” who have been trying to attack the federal courthouse, leave.

Last week, KGW News published an interview with Williams as he stood downtown and surveyed the damage. He called it “disgusting.”

While speaking with The Oregonian, the US attorney explained federal agents aren’t leaving until “the violence ends.”

Until the Democratic leaders in cities across the US stand up and demand that rioters stop their destructive activity, the violence will continue. This isn’t something the federal government can tackle alone. Local leaders need to step up and do the jobs they were elected to do.
