Portland Mayor Tear Gassed While Joining Protesters: ‘This Is Urban Warfare’

July 23, 2020


Embattled mayor of Portland, Oregon Ted Wheeler joined protesters in downtown Portland last night, where he was one of many tear gassed by federal agents. He said that he saw no provocation to warrant the aggressive behavior, and called it “flatout urban warfare.” He was heckled by protesters, who called for his resignation. Wheeler is also the police commissioner, and his officers had to be court-ordered to limit their use of tear gas on protesters prior to federal agents’ arrival in the city.
