"I think that actually highlights perfectly one of the things that I think has bothered people on the ground hear about having But the narrative has been, is it which is that the protests have lost their focus or that they aren't there? No longer about black lives matter Movement or about you know, against police brutality and systemic racism and Protesters here have been focused and that is then they're caused the whole time. And so are they aware of the bigger narrative? Are they aware of? You know the Trump Administration and all the the elections? Always? Yeah, sure, you know. They're not living with their heads in the ground, but That's not their focus their out protesting. I mean, fundamentally, they were been protesting the Portland Police Bureau on DH and Systemic racism and police brutality in the city and The federal law enforcement officers to the extent of the destruction. It's because they're now no. They're the ones intervening and creating the distraction. Their focus protester demands have remain sane is focused very locally. Well, Margaret in Santa Rosa, join us. Hi, Margaret. Hi. Well, meaning you just made it pretty much the point that I was going to make it that everything I hear reported is things are very peaceful during the day and when, after dark is when people come out their violence. And I just It just makes me long for leadership and some way that people could understand. Don't Don't give an excuse a justification for those troops being therefrom. The person that I won't name but on DH what's going into that campaign, But more than that? I just wish that so I can't even talk about it. I so wish people understood that how fruitless that violence is. And how it's going to be used. Margaret thinks, and I just want to say after how much It makes me miss the beloved John Lewis and the kind of leadership that is efficacious and long lasting. Thank you. Well, Margaret, thanks for sharing that all that that stand and go to mark in San Francisco. Hi, Mark. Good morning. Thank you very much for this conversation much appreciated, and I really wantto thank the note that this is like a two block area. That's the part of media that drives me crazy. My question is this. Ah, and it's sort of a follow up to the outside instigator question, which is on the You know, graffiti and violence. Whatever we want to call it. What was non peaceful protest is in your opinion, just sort of random acts or is there any kind of organisation to it? Not necessarily outside forces. Mark. Thanks, Rebecca or Jonathan? Twosome organized. I wantto anachronistic. It's a very decentralized process. But there's not one group or one person leading it and activist I spoke to today has been very present on the ground said You know, we aren't led by an organization. We are led by principles and that's that's they're organizing. Ah. That's how they're organized. Guided by principles. Well, John asks. I'm wondering at one point protester decide they've won or not. I mean, what does victory look like at this point? Any thoughts for John on that Rebecca? No, I was just saying, I mean, that's the question. I like. I'm thinking about all the times. Like what? How does this end that the city step up and like meet these demands, like, Johnson said. They are still super locally focused, and a lot of the calls were for Doing cuts the police spears budget and they did some of the cuts that they go nearly as faras protestors wanted. So do they step up and meet those demands it once the federal officers leave, even though these protests were going on long before S o. I certainly have no answer, but it's definitely certainly question I have for trying. I mean, we haven't heard from City leaders in terms of we referred them say they want the feds out. We haven't heard them say, you know, engaged the protesters on the issues that they're actually protesting. So it's hard to say how this ends when you don't have leadership, actually. Engaging with the issue, and that's my last question. Actually, Jonathan Levinson is I mean, I understand that Portland's mayor has not necessarily been the person that everybody has loved, even when he's attempted to come out to protests, even with the calls that media has been reporting that he's making me Can you talk about that relationship? Is there some unity there or not? It sounds like you're saying not. I mean, just a build up for Rebecca just said that the protesters from the beginning talked about $50 million pulled from the police Bureau budget. They had a pretty detailed plan reinvested back in the community, and they've got a fraction of that. And it wasn't enough. And they kept protesting. And since then everybody's sort of just thrown up their hands and said, Well, you know we don't we're going to police. You now. I think it's notable that after Mayor Wheeler came out to the protests and said that the tear gas was, you know an escalation and was what he said was disproportionate. Like an hour later for them. Please threatened to use, you know, impact missions and tear gas to disperse the crowd, and he's the police commissioner. So At this point, have there been any significant policy changes that will contribute to quelling the escalation of violence. You think potentially There's one There's one big one that should be mentioned, which is coming up tomorrow is obviously like every city civilian oversight of the police powers a huge issue here and we have a system. That many people feel is just totally broken and doesn't hold police to account and we have a vote tomorrow on whether to refer a measure to the November ballot that would totally reshape that system on DH that and that is completely in response to.

But they're saying that the additional personnel may not result in a net increase, meaning that they're going to basically refresh troops. Yeah, There's been some some corrections issue from the government issues since yesterday. We haven't heard any any new updates to what we initially reported yesterday. And I mean, Rebecca Alice. This is despite calls from city leaders for thes federal agents to leave and as well as thie, civil rights lawsuits, and these appeals to Congress to stop the Trump administration from sending more officers mean what's the reaction? They're in Portland that basically they're saying we're not listening to you. Yeah. I mean, we've seen okay and the mayor around the City council, the governor everyone says we don't want or need help from these federal officers, and they've been pretty clear that they want them to leave the city. They've also been really clear that their hands are tied on DH. These officers have jurisdiction here. They're allowed to guard their property. And I mean, the mayor has asked the city attorney toe look into it and see if there's any actions the city can take to try and get these Federal officers to leave, But right now they really don't know what they're what they're path forward is Because basically the argument Jonathan Levinson is that things have really changed and not change for the better Since this federal presence. Can you tell us what it's been like since they arrived? I mean, I think it's important to be clear that the tactics federal law enforcement are using are very similar to what the Portland police for using They are responding to Large groups of mostly nonviolent protesters. There are people in the crowd that air doing things like throwing water bottles there. Sometimes small fires that are set of like, you know, piles of garbage, cardboard. There are there are things that there are protesters that recently for firing fireworks has become a little bit more involved with the protesters. So there there is. There's there's more than simply throwing water you're talking about a crowd of you know many hundreds to its On some nights, many thousands who are gathered, and the overwhelming majority are nonviolent, and they're responding with Really significant levels of violence. I mean the tear gas but also impact munitions cause severe injuries and they have shot a number of people now in the head and caused injuries, you know, and and in the chest and legs, but cause really severe injuries, a number of times. So what the federal law enforcement officers have done is Mohr of that my personal observations on the ground. It seems like there's just they're a little bit more violent and the way they act in the way they respond to protesters. But their their presence in general has just been seen as a provocation and has really galvanized the city on reenergize the protest movement that had been you know, most nights that was down in the low in the low hundreds. In Rebecca Ellis. You yourself actually injured when you were trying to cover the protests that tape that we played in the intro is actually taped. You gathered from a video and that hour that we here at the end there is when something struck your hand. Can you tell us what happened? I thought that that out. Sounded familiar. I Yeah, No, that was olden. I sport together. That was last week. I think Wednesday or Thursday and actually went out that I was interested. A federal judge has just issued a temporary restraining order against the federal officers saying they couldn't actually couldn't target or use force against people they know or should know where journalists or legal observers on they also couldn't order them to disperse, and I was sort of curious how that was going to fly out. So I went and was sort of covering it. And then around 2 a.m. no MiGs earlier But anyway, early in the early morning the next day, the federal officers were sort of moving. Through the area near the courthouse to disperse protesters. And as they walked up these shot, I really don't know what it was a tear gas canister saying else. Um, and it just hit my hand while I was filming. I'm totally signed but that that was what that AL was in the video. And then they sort of ordered us to disperse thing. Yeah, That was my next question. If your hand is so totally glad to hear that it was, But it sounds like you were trying to see if this judge's order would in some way. Maybe Result in them being less indiscriminate in terms of who they were pulled back and clear. Like, I don't know. I don't know that they knew that that that that restraining order is for people who they know or should know is ah Journalists and I was kind of far away at that point, so I have. I have no idea if they knew I was a journalist. But the thing that that was also interesting was when they were ordering all these journalists to disperse along with the protesters. Which under the restraining order, they are definitely not supposed to be doing. And definitely Jonathan Levinson. I mean, a major flashpoint on bits sounds like a galvanizing event for protesters in Portland was reporting that You and Oregon Public broadcasting had done about these officers basically pulling protesters in tow, unmarked vans. Can you talk about what effect? That story had on the general understanding of what's happening in Portland. Yeah. I mean, I think it just called attention to the to an issue that I think protesters on the ground every night saw happening and saw evolving over time. This escalation from federal law enforcement. But I think that just highlighted it to a wider audience that that they were here. They were on city streets, policing Portland in a way that I think shock a lot of people for some of us who have been watching it develop over time, and I'm actually going to steal an observation from one of the few answers here, Tuck Woodstock. Ice. I touched on that earlier they had been there. You know, It was a continuation of the Portland police had been doing and there'd been this just slow, steady escalation over the weeks and so for some of us when we saw these videos of the vans, it was like, okay, this looks bad, but, you know, Yeah, that's that's what's been going on on. It wasn't really until we publish that story, and I saw the backlash that it click. Just how just how bad it looked at just how you know How much of a potential overstep it wasn't how shocking it was to see that happening on a City street. Well, I want to invite our listeners to join the conversation. We.

"Here to talk us through these issues is Jonathan Levinson from Oregon Public Broadcasting in Portland. And NPR's Cheryl Corley in Chicago. She covers law enforcement. Hello to both of you. Hello. Hi. All right. Let's start with Jonathan. Let's start with the press conference that acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf just gave what exactly did he have to say today? Yeah. Wolf defended the role of federal officers saying that they're here to protect buildings. And he denied reporting based often Internal D. H s memo that some of the officers aren't trained and riot control or demonstrations. He also denied that federal officers didn't identify themselves on pulling protestors off the streets. That's despite firsthand accounts from people who have been arrested and video posted online who he said these officers had probable cause and the authority to make arrests, and he said that he that they acted appropriately. At least one of the protestors, who was arrested in this manner hasn't been charged with any crime and overall, this isn't likely to quell any of the anger about their presence here. Okay, so The protesters were you are they've been out on the streets since early June. How has those protests evolved in the last couple months? Well. Federal officers stop made a big started showing up around July 1st, they made a big show of force on the fourth, and so far, their presence is really only served to escalate tensions Now. Clearly there are two different views of things. Wolf characterized protesters. As hey said, You know, every night, there's 500 or 600 violent criminals. But last night, for example, that were probably about 1000 moms and dads out singing and out there sort of putting themselves between the police and the protesters. Eso there are more people showing up and they come from a broad cross section of the city. And what kind of changes are these protesters asking for? The demands have been pretty consistent and have centered on issues of racial justice. I spoke to one protester chaos. He's 22 indigenous Puerto Rican and white. He's been out protesting since the second day, he said. Protesters are most focused on either DD De funding or abolishing them. Police. Eso things left. Like what? He was saying things things like wellness checks or school resource officers, or, you know, he joked about enforcing like lawn height codes out in the suburbs. You don't need armed police officers to do those things. I also spoke with a woman, Beth Barnum. She's she helped organize and pull together. All these moms that showed up She posted on Facebook a couple nights ago after she read reporting about the officers grabbing people off the street, and she started doing more reading. It was the first you'd heard about it. She hadn't really been following the protests, she said. She became so mad she couldn't sleep on. This is what she had to say. Last night during a March downtown. We're playing on coming back until there's no one left to protect. That's the goal. As long as the kids are out here, we'll be out here..

"Calling for federal agents sent in response to weeks of protests to leave the city. Those protests were first sparked by the police killing of George Floyd. Since their arrival, federal agents wearing military style gear and sometimes driving unmarked vans have unleashed tear gas into crowds rounded up and detained protesters and even shot one man in the head with a nonlethal round, causing serious injury. Their presence and their tactics have raised questions about the use of federal agencies to police cities. Even when local authorities don't want them there. Jonathan Levinson has been reporting on all of this for Oregon Public broadcasting, and he joins me now, Jonathan, Welcome to the news hour. We should point out that those protests have been largely peaceful. There's been some vandalism, some property damage, but you've been following this, So tell me. When did you first notice there were federal agents, not local police and Who do we know that those federal agents are So there's always federal agents at the federal courthouse. But there was a new increased presence, and they played a much larger role starting around July 4th, and that's when sort of federal reinforcements came from the U. S Marshals, Special operations group and Customs and border customs and border protections. Abort Tack, which is essentially their SWAT team. And that night, July 4th, and then since then, they've been playing a much more active role, clearing the protestors off the streets in some nice right alongside Portland police and as you mentioned, really venturing away from federal properties. Onto the city streets in order to affect arrests at times, even There've been a lot of questions around who those men are in camouflage. Do we now know who those agents are? What agency therefrom. So you just just recently about an hour ago, Acting deputy Secretary for Homeland Security can Cuccinelli acknowledged that it was homeland security officer is doing it and Basically said that this is a tactic they used. The U. S attorney in Oregon here. Billy Williams announced an investigation or he requested that homeland Security inspector general launched investigation into possible arrests being being done without probable cause. And there's a lot of questions about their tactics. You reported on the story of one protester. A man named Mark Petty, Bony says he was peacefully processing on the evening of July 15th taken into custody in an unmarked car by armed men and camouflaged from what you've been able to report. What exactly happened to Pettibone. So many bones been. Ah, protesting a couple nights a week since all this started on. Ah, that was Wednesday night. He was Protesting. It was sort of festive atmosphere. Adi's protests on nights and this is one of the nights they were dancing. There's music, he said. He was playing Frisbee for awhile. Around 2 30 In the morning, he and a friend walk back their car and a few blocks away from where the protests are from the federal courthouse. Vinnie van pulls up four or five guys with rifles jump out, he said. His being he was pulled down over his head and blindfolding him. They tossed him in the van. One officer held his arms about his head while they drove around a little bit and eventually He was unloaded inside a building, which only after he was released. Did he learn was the federal courthouse while he was in there? They searched the stuff. They photographed him reading his rights. Hey, was under the impression that he was being arrested. Hey has for a lawyer. And very soon after he was released didn't give him any paperwork. From any indication that he's been charged with anything. He still isn't sure if he's been charged with anything. Jonathan less than a minute left. We should remind people as we mentioned earlier that city and state officials say they don't want these federal agents there. You've been in touch with the agency's What are they telling you about their presence? Well, the federal agencies say they are here to quell this call it mob violence. They've called the protesters criminals. The governor has said that their presence is a provocation and they are unwanted here. The mayor has said that you know they should stay inside their buildings and not come out if they can't do that, and they should leave. That is Oregon Public Broadcasting Jonathan Levinson joining us tonight with the latest on the protest in Portland. Thanks so much. Thank you.
