Numerous US cities saw another weekend of riots, looting and arson as well as a fatal shooting as President Trump deploys federal agents to tackle leftist agitators.
The West Coast city of Portland saw the worst of the disturbances as the Oregon metropolis endured its latest round of violence after almost 60 days of nightly disturbances.
Black Lives Matter and Antifa militants attacked the city’s federal courthouse and rioting also broke out in at least five other American cities in a spate of violence which erupted after convicted home invader George Floyd died following his arrest by Minneapolis police.
The death of Floyd sparked widespread protests in the US and other Western countries which developed into riots and social disturbances with leftist groups even seizing whole blocks of some cities, such as Seattle, and declaring them “cop free zones”.
In Portland however, the Mark O. Hatfield United States Courthouse has become the focus of rioter’s rage with three federal agents being possibly permanently blinded by BLM supporters who pointed high powered lasers at them while defending the federal building.
Elsewhere, riots broke out in a number of American cities including Austin, Texas where one protestor was fatally shot by a driver after pointing an AK-47 at him.
