The Multnomah County District Attorney released data related to the Portland protests and riot arrests, revealing that most cases since George Floyd’s death were dropped and a majority of cases were rejected in the “interest of justice.”

The new “Mass Demonstration/Protest Case” is the most complete data to date made available to the public regarding the Black Lives Matter-Antifa riots and protests that have convulsed Portland since May. The overview documents filing status, dropped cases, the reasons cases weren’t pursued, nature of crimes and demographic information.

Between May 29 and Oct. 5, there were 974 cases brought to the MCDA’s office by Portland Police. Many involve repeat offenders though the number isn’t published in the report. Nearly 70 percent of these cases were dropped. 543 cases were rejected in the “interest of justice,” 44 cases due to “insufficient evidence,” 12 cases due to “a legal impediment,” and 67 cases are “pending investigative follow-up from law enforcement.”

'Racially Diverse' Cops Dumping Portland in Favor of Lower Paying Jobs in Places Where They're Appreciated

Victoria Taft

Portland cops are already retiring in record numbers, but now cops are fleeing mid-career to go to places for lower pay and a fiscal hit to their retirement accounts. The Democrats’ embrace of the antifa and BLM defund-the-police stance is working—leaving Portlanders even more defenseless against rioters, looters, arsonists, squatters, and terrorists. In essence, the exodus is  “a win by those that would want the police to be defunded,” according to the Portland Police Bureau’s human resources officer.

Finding replacements may take some time because the diversity recruiting officer for Portland police is gone too.

The Portland Tribune characterizes the exodus as an “unprecedented situation for Portland” in which “a racially diverse and experienced group of police officers is taking pay cuts to get away from the city, while citing poor working conditions here.”

Leftists keep the pressure on cops by complaining about what they wear, what they do, and the “munitions” they use against rioters, as if quelling violence is wrong.
