Portland still has a way to go

Compared to Chicago - they are working on it though... From Frontpage Magazine:

Eloi and Morlocks in Portlandia
9-year-old Hadar Kedem was playing with her father, brother, and family dog in a Portland city park when the gunmen came and the bullets began flying. 

And the numbers?

Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and the police defunding movement had taken Portland from 388 shootings in 2019 to over 1,000 this year. Murders in Rose City rose by 83% breaking its previous high score set in 1987. As the Black Lives Matter race riots got underway, Portland went from 23 shootings in March 2020 to 104 by July of that same year. By March 2021, there were 93 shootings. Gone were the pleasant days of 2019 when Portlanders might complain about 30 shootings. The summer of 2021 saw around 400 shootings: more than in all of 2019.

And the reaction of the WOKE?

Shoshana Gugenheim Kedem, Hadar’s mother, an “insectional feminist” who “dismantles patriarchy”, and advocated for “Palestinian rights”, denounced her daughter’s “white privilege”.

“We are a white family of privilege,” the leftist hipster artist confessed. “No one in our family wants to see the result of this be more police presence at parks. That’s not the answer.”

What was the answer?

Gugenheim insisted that instead of police, the solution to a dozen men opening fire in the park was dealing with root causes, "services for disadvantaged communities", "education", "gun control", and "a task force of people with equity training to tackle the issue of gun violence".

Unreal.  Chicago has a population of 2,679,080 and Portland has a population of 662,549 - Chicago's is 4.043 times larger.

Year-to-date, Chicago has had 3,906 shootings and Portland is right at 1,000 - this is 3.9 times larger. One in 662 Portlandians will get shot while one in 685 residents of the Windy City will get shot.  Approaching a really desirable record there people... How long will it take for them to realize that unicorn farts do not stop bullets. Police do.
