I really hope this turns out to be false:
Federal Law Enforcement Use Unmarked Vehicles To Grab Protesters Off Portland Streets
But I can’t say I’m optimistic.
Well, at least everyone was wearing a mask.
Could the state or local police – more for a show of force than to actually engage in conflict, encircle marked/unmarked federal buildings and follow these sorts of federal agents or block them from leaving federal properties? State local police could attempt to arrest federal agents – I guess both sides would be breaking law – so no harm no foul. Also, Oregon if it has control of water/lights could cut off access to federal courts and other federal buildings until the paramilitaries are removed. Sometimes you need to bully the bully and a lawsuit may not be enuf.
Looks like your “Watch the Border Patrol” post from a couple of months ago turned out to be depressingly prescient.
