I’m speechless how it’s ok to selectively enforce laws on the books due to a political climate.
Under the new policy, Schmidt’s office will “presumptively decline” to prosecute cases that don’t fit his criteria, including interfering with a peace, parole or probation officer; second-degree disorderly conduct; first- or second-degree criminal trespass; third-degree escape and harassment. Rioting charges will also not be prosecuted unless accompanied by another crime not included in the list, Schmidt said.
The move will likely lead to no charges for “hundreds of people” arrested since May 29, a spokesman for the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office told The Post.
“Violent crimes, arsons and intentional property damage cases will still be prosecuted,” spokesman Brent Weisberg said.

“Englewood may set the tone for dealing with rioters for the rest of the summer. After the organized pillaging this weekend on the Magnificent Mile, the city of Chicago toughened up their security stance. Black Lives Matter protesters and others set their sights on the Englewood neighborhood’s police precinct, but residents there pushed them out — literally.”
EPIC 🔥👏🏾 Black Residents of Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood tell #blacklivesmatter they are not welcome in their community!.
