Here’s a question I haven’t seen them brought up. Why didn’t the Multnomah County, sheriffs office step up? The mayor Portland has no authority over them .

These antifa folks are some of the weirdest, most disheveled, looking groups of people I've ever seen. The most mentally weak, ineffectual, under-productive horde of body odor and body fat I've seen. Some guy was eating a taco plate with one hand and pumping a fist with the other in protest! WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH HUMAN BEINGS!?
We've done this to ourselves. So glad I got out of cities.

He clearly plowed through them... I suppose he was also waving a Confederate flag while touching a woman as he took a # on the protesters "right to be violent without repercussions"? How dare he not succumb to the mob! Do what the mob says or else!!
I'm sure that people who go to a protest carrying weapons are there for a peaceful protest.
I'm sure that every person in Portland was made aware of this "legal" protest and the routes that would be blocked off so events like this wouldn't happen.
I'm sure that the last two statements are utter bull#
Your perspective was made to fit your narrative.

Lol, sarcasm noted but I'll still drink a beer for you Saturday during the LSU/Georgia game.
Point is, when you have a mob or a group of people looking for a fight, sometimes the only choice is to smack em with your vehicle.
More than 100 marched through downtown Portland on Saturday to protest the death of Patrick Kimmons, who was fatally shot by police officers last Sunday.
The group, which included members of Kimmons' family, gathered near a memorial supporters have set up near Southwest 4th Avenue and Harvey Milk Street, at the parking lot where the shooting occurred.
They marched to the downtown Justice Center, where speakers, including relatives of Kimmons, demanded police accountability in the shooting.
The driver says he was following two other cars that made a right-hand turn when one protester stepped in front of his car and others surrounded it.
A KATU News photographer recorded the moment when the man drove through protesters in the street, striking at least one of them. At the time, the walk sign was on in the crosswalk. The driver made a right turn into the crosswalk.

Another perspective: the crowd of protesters were moving across the street. The driver decided to plow through them, rather than waiting for them to pass. What would happen to you if you decided to plow through a crowd of people crossing a street?

If my teen daughter and I were out there protesting and some guy drives his car into my daughter, you’re damned right I would chase after him and give him a piece of my mind. Wouldn’t you?
