Portland protests: Oregon governor releases plan to curb violence after shooting death

As Portland, Oregon, grapples with three straight months of protests and a deadly shooting on Saturday, Gov. Kate Brown is putting out her own plan to try to calm clashes over protests in the city.

"We all must come together -- elected officials, community leaders, all of us -- to stop the cycle of violence," the governor said in a news release Sunday evening.

Protests in the city broke out in the wake of the death of George Floyd in police custody. The demonstrations that denounce police brutality and racial injustice picked up again after last weekend's shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin. On Saturday, protests turned violent with clashes between Trump supporters and protesters.

The governor said three neighboring law enforcement jurisdictions -- Clackamas County, Washington County and the city of Gresham -- will help the Portland Police Bureau deal with the protests. Federal prosecutors and the FBI also will be assisting with investigation of criminal activity and Oregon State Police troopers will be helping with patrols, Brown said.

3. Which "Agency" isnt?

I hear the gov is negotiating with trump.

Strangely.. no-one in power at any level of government has been able to come up with any actual solutions.

2. So much for "coming together"

"Sheriffs say they won't help governor's plan to stop Portland protest violence"

4. The Gov lacks a real plan

The sherriffs werent actually a solution anyway, adding more LE presence will not fix any part of this situation.
