It's difficult for me, a believer in non-violence and the rule of law, to support the destructive actions of the rioters in Portland. I wear a mask to protect myself and others during Covid. I stay six feet apart from others, I don't go to bars or get pedicures or to church when it isn't allowed. I pay taxes to the County, the State, and the country (USA). Why are these rioters allowed to break rules without punishment? If I broke a law, I'd get punished-a traffic ticket for speeding or parking illegally, a fine or jail time for not paying taxes or spray painting the nearby courthouse. Why is it permissible for these rioters to continue their destruction for over 50 consecutive nights?
