Portland Police Chief Says Protesters Went Off to "Whine And Complain" Last Week Because Officers

"Kicked Your Butt"
At least two protesters went to the hospital with serious injuries caused by flash-bang grenades police shot into the crowd.

Portland Police Chief Danielle Outlaw is not satisfied with how reporters have covered the heavy-handed police response to antifascist counterprotesters at an Aug. 4 rally.

Today, she used a vivid analogy to make her point.

She told conservative talk-radio host Lars Larson she thought the protesters were acting like children who lost a schoolyard fight and had gone of to "whine and complain" after police fired flash-bang grenades, rubber bullets and pepper spray into a crowd of demonstrators. (At least two people were sent to the hospital with serious injuries after being hit directly with stun grenades launched by police, and many more have reported being hurt.)

"I tell you, 'Meet me after school at 3:00. Right? We're gonna fight'," Outlaw said, setting up the analogy to describe how she feels her critics are acting. "And I come with the intention to fight. And then you get mad because I kicked your butt. And then you go back and you wail off and whine and complain."

1. My main question has been

Are the Mayor and the Chief knowingly complicit, or have they lost control of the police department.

Seems like Chief Outlaw is giving her answer.
