On Friday, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler condemned the criminal violence on the city commissioner Thursday night.
“Last night’s criminal destruction and attack on Commissioner Ryan’s home are reprehensible. Violence, unlawful destruction, and intimidation are unacceptable and will not be tolerated,” Wheeler said in a statement.
A small group of protesters for police reform gathered late Thursday in North Portland, marched to city commissioner Dan Ryan’s house, and damaged the property before police chased them away, according to a report by OregonLive.
The demonstration followed a City Council vote against a proposal that would have cut millions of dollars from the Portland police budget. Ryan voted no to the request.
“Those responsible must be found, investigated, and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I condemn anyone who uses violence to attempt to silence the voices of others,” Wheeler noted.
