Yes, in this case the mayor is the police commissioner, although he has the right to assign that to another member of the city Council
And this is under challenge https://www.opb.org/news/article/portland-mayor-ted-wheeler-says-hes-keeping-police-bureau/

This dual role seems inappropriate to me, more suitable to a small town.

Because he said something you disagree with? Don't tell me you actually are praising the attack on that tweet.

We should be careful labeling that tweet to "Black Lives Matter".....

Do we have ANY proof that BLM is setting buildings afire?

I know Antifa does this sometimes but is there even PROOF that THEY are present?

I mean - "I" could set a building afire (I have ZERO desire to do this NOR have done it), but I have no official ties to BLM or Antifa besides being a bothered Black Man in this country that wants to see it heal.

Oh NOW proof is needed. Wasn't much of a problem when it came to conspiracy theories such as Russiagate.

Why not?

Why is asking for such a thing a foreign term?

Russiagate? That is moving the goalposts, my friend.

With ALL of the entities in POR right now (I've heard from Ken Kucinelli's mouth) - Ice Agents, Federal Forces, Border Patrol, Air Marshals......I am certain that they can find some proof.

No, because his credibility is shot. If you know anything about Andy Ngo, you know he's pretty famous for twisting the truth especially in these kinds of contexts. He's built his whole career on it and has been exposed as a liar multiple times. Kind of the Jacob Wohl of conflict journalism.

No, on face value, absolutely not. But I'd be careful to accept anything significant Andy Ngo offers at face value. I would be very surprised if what is happening in that tweet is the whole story, or even representative of the whole story.

Talk about an attempt at deflecting. It shouldn’t really be surprising that people are more prone to believing things that fit their worldview.

Proof of such things really should be a good baseline for things like this man

Oh please, of course I ask for proof.

Just be consistent then.

It seems like a fairly straight forward video, as does the one of attempting to set the courthouse on fire.
