In a moment caught on video, a Portland PD officer makes a quip that triggered rioters.
As the violence and flames caused by Antifa and Marxist Black Lives Matter activists continue night after night in the city, one officer brought a little non-PC levity while making yet another arrest (9 were made at just one violent protest last night alone).
Male PPB officers detaining a female protestor and patting her down w/ no female officers present. I asked if they had a female officer to do patdown, one responded by “nope” the other said, “how do you know I don’t identify as a female?” Other officers laugh. #PortlandProtests pic.twitter.com/bSabNSHXSf— Shauna Sowersby (@Shauna_Sowersby) August 9, 2020
Early Sunday during a pat down of a handcuff female suspect, a woman shooting video yelled at police, “Do you have a female officer present while you're patting her down?"
One officer replied, “Nope.”
Another fired back with a quip.
"How do you know that I don't identify as a female?" he said as chuckles broke out among the officers.
The joke wasn’t as well received by the pro-riot crowd, "Fu**in' smart-ass" and “We hate you” can be heard from some in response.
It seems some rioters like to think they’re tough by striking police with items like ball bearings – but it seems they can’t take a joke.
