Portland police move in quickly, declare riot as fires set outside union headquarters: Key takeaways

From Oregon Live:

A march on the Portland police union headquarters drew a rapid police response Monday night after someone set a fire next to the building.

Officers arrived at the Portland Police Association building minutes after protesters and declared the gathering an unlawful assembly as some in the crowd spray-painted the building and someone climbed on the roof to unfurl a banner.

About 60 seconds later, police declared a riot as the fire outside the building became visible.
