This is ironic for Portland Police. They have been in a constant conflict with protester/rioters since late May 2020. At times the Portland Officers hands are tied trying to control the protesters/rioters and it appears the officers did not always have clear guidance on amount or methods of use of force to control the protesters/rioters. Which is a troubling and difficult position to be in. It appears that this confusion was created by the Judge Hernandez and the politicians. Now Judge Hernandez is thinking to hold Portland in contempt over the police departments response to the violent rioters.
