The rioters in Portland have evolved and are now using a new weapon to use against the police and others. Balloons filled with poop. Since all of the rioters are full of crap, they have an inexhaustible supply.
And if not, there are plenty of Democrats who support them that can fill in in a pinch.
They were also throwing such things as golf balls, rail spikes and rocks. They even tore down a road sign and used it to break out windows in police vehicles.
The even mounted an attack on a Boys and Girls Club sponsored by the Portland Trailblazers.
Not sure whose job it was to make these…. ??

In addition to Portland Police vehicles being damaged during the riot outside of the North Precinct last night, a Boys and Girls Club van was also damaged.

Multiple arrests were made as police vehicles suffered heavy damage and multiple police officers were injured at the Portland Police’s North Precinct Community Policing Center. A crowd of between 150 and 200 rioters gathered to extend the violence in Portland to 85 days.
Police tried to guard the compound by placing empty police vehicles around the building marked off with yellow tape. Then they announced to the crowd to stay away from the building. So naturally, the rioters immediately attacked the vehicles and the officers.
The police then hid out rather than confront the rioters. They have permanent stand down orders or something. Rioters can cause as much damage as they like, including injuring police officers and face no consequences.
No wonder the riots are quickly closing in on 90 days. At this rate your grandchildren will be watching the still ongoing riots in twenty or thirty years.
Officers in the sound truck used their loudspeaker to warn the group to back off the city property, keep the demonstration peaceful, and the ask crowd to police itself. However, individuals within the group continued to increase their attacks in an attempt to goad the officers into responding.
Individuals were seen using lacrosse sticks to launch rocks a greater distance. At least two officers were struck with rocks despite their safety buffer. A ball bearing struck the loudspeaker truck almost a full block away.
A van parked in front of the neighboring Boys and Girls Club had a window broken by what is believed to be a golf ball.
