Fear has infiltrated the streets of Portland: Reporter’s Notebook


This article addresses the riots that have been occurring for months in Portland, Oregon. It is written from the viewpoint of the author, Kanya Whitworth. Whitworth decides to visit Portland herself and quickly realizes how chaotic the scene really is. She says that the protesters were acting very aggressively by shoving the camera crew around and shining green lasers in their eyes. The protesters are very violent and focused on burning buildings and monuments in honor of the BLM protest. Many people feel that these protests are way out of hand and not even about the movement anymore. Personally, I agree that some of these people are just trying to be anarchists rather than protesters with a common goal. I feel that there should be much more peaceful protests.
