Anti-cop protesters started huge fires near a Portland police precinct early Friday, as looters plundered nearby stores, according to police and local reports.
“North Portland looks like a war zone right now,” journalist Andy Ngô tweeted alongside videos of numerous large fires in the Oregon city.
He said militants “tried to establish an autonomous zone outside” the North Precinct in the city and “they then started fires in the street.”
Other footage showed people chanting “no good cops in a racist system” as they watched a large fire burn nearby.
The rioters were “throwing things into their street fire to make it grow bigger,” Ngô tweeted, saying that police just “stand back and watch from a distance.”
“Rioters have a huge banner that reads, ‘Every city, every town, burn the precinct to the ground,’” he revealed.
The precinct was also covered in graffiti, with a large BLM — for Black Lives Matter — as well as numerous expletives and “Killer cops kill,” according to other images on social media.
It followed a day of what was supposed to be peaceful protests throughout the city.
But what was a “highlight” of the night was the moment when Antifa protesters burned down a black-owned business while BLM protesters tried to stop them.

A Portland resident tweeted out to Andy Ngo that ANTIFA set fire to a black-owned hair salon. Some BLM members tried to stop it a little too late.

It’s time for this to end, domestic terrorism is not under the 1st amendment while peaceful protests are.
