to help curb the rising crime in the city. Wait to one of the unarmed Rangers gets shot and see how fast they abandon that stupid idea. In an incident that already occurred, two of the Rangers reportedly had to run from a man armed with a machete attacking them. The Rangers then called the police to arrest the guy. Only in a liberal run city does such nonsense take place.

The man had a paintball gun and tiny hatchet, though the article says machete in the article headline and axe in the storyline.

Either way the city of Portland is now a black hole...and the whole state is not far behind.

It is a shame the way parts of Oregon is going. Beautiful state being ruined by nutcase progressives. The people that keep electing and re-electing them is the problem.

I strongly suspect that unarmed park rangers have been hired by the City of Portland for many years. What has changed is that idea now fits their agenda of how Portland is doing everything wrong. Not that I think they are doing things correctly but phrased as it was, the topic is idiotic. Show me a large city that doesnt hire unarmed park rangers.

Portland is an example of what they want for the whole country.....emboldened criminals who are not punished and disarmed citizens who are punished for protecting themselves from the criminals....

I won't be going to that party.

H2O, it wasnt that way when I was a kid. Grew up in the hills west of the city. Got family all over the state.

Yes. I once thought it would be a nice state to visit, but similar to Cali, I don't think I would even wanna visit. I feel sorry for the good folks that live in Oregon, as it has to be quite frustrating.
