Portland spook van dodelike bendegeweld te midde van oproepe om die polisie te verdedig: 'People are scared'

Vanaf Donderdag, daar was 37 moorde in Oregon se grootste stad tot dusver vanjaar, meer as ses keer die aantal wat in dieselfde tydperk verlede jaar aangeteken is, volgens The Associated Press. The city’s current annual record for homicides is 70, set in 1987.

People are scared. They are angry. They are fed up,” Portland Police Sgt. Ken Duilio told the news agency.
