So much for “peaceful” protests.
The New York Post reports:
Three federal agents who were sent to Portland, Ore., to try to help quell the city’s violent protests were “likely left permanently blinded” from clashes, White House officials said Friday.
“A federal agent’s hand was impaled by planted nails, another federal agent was shot with a pellet gun, leaving a wound deep to the bone, and tragically, three federal officers were likely left permanently blinded by the rioters using lasers pointed directly into their eyes,” White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told reporters Friday.
The rioters aren’t protestors – they’re a violent and vicious mob.
In addition to their horrific attacks on the officers, the crowd fired off fireworks at the Federal Courthouse that’s been the locus of their attacks.
How long will we allow our nation to be torn apart by lawlessness?
