The sheriffs of Clackamas and Washington County in Oregon said they won’t send staff to help with the nightly unrest in Portland after Gov. Kate Brown unveiled a plan to bring an end to violence in the city.
Brown had asked the sheriffs and the Gresham Police Department to support the Portland Police Bureau with personnel and resources “to keep the peace and protect free speech.” Fox News
Our nation has had to tolerate these violent protests, riots, and looting for almost 100 days in Portland and we have seen the Police out every night attempting to hold their line.
Black Lives Matter and Antifa continues to carry out their hate and violence as the Mayor and Governor deny any federal help to quell the rioters.
As Fox went on to report, Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts on Monday said the governor never approached him before unveiling her plan to mobilize local law enforcement agencies in the Portland protests, and that he has no plans to send his staff to nightly demonstrations.

The Sheriff refused to back the violence and changing of policies in Portland and stated that his department will still respond to calls in his county and back up the State Police calls in his county.
“Had Governor Brown discussed her plan with my office, I would have told her it’s about changing policy, not adding resources, Increasing law enforcement resources in Portland will not solve the nightly violence and now, murder.
Portland’s newly elected district attorney had dismissed charges against hundreds of protesters arrested for non-violent, low-level crimes.
“The same offenders are arrested night after night, only to be released by the court and not charged with a crime by the DA’s Office.
The next night they are back at it, endangering the lives of law enforcement and the community all over again, The criminal justice system will need do its part and hold offenders accountable.”
The Sheriff is stating the truth and doing the right thing for the people in his county as his duty. America needs more Sheriff Departments to stand up for their people in their counties and serve and protect as is their duty.
