Hours After Chauvin Found Guilty, Portland Police Officer Surrounded and Punched in Face


Within hours of the guilty verdict being rendered in former Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin’s case, rioting broke out in Portland, Oregon, where crowds smashed in windows and violent agitators surrounded and assaulted a police officer. The Oregonian on Wednesday tweeted a video of the assault on an officer as part of its larger coverage of the riot that broke out after the conviction of Chauvin. It was just the latest in Portland’s year of terror at the hands of anarchist mobs, and there is little sign that justice will visit the city any time soon. Randy Gray, 36, was arrested on a felony charge of assaulting a police officer and four misdemeanors including assault, harassment, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief. But he was released on bail the following day, according to the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office. It is unclear who paid Gray’s bail, though it might have been the Portland Protest Bail Fund, which has raised more than $1.3 million over the last year to continually pay bail for violent agitators and anti-police criminals.
