PORTLAND, Ore. — Someone vandalized the Portland Police union headquarters doing thousands of dollars in damage early Tuesday.
Spokesman Scott Westerman said just before 1 a.m., bricks and rocks were thrown through their windows, doing about $20,000 worth of damage to the outside of the building.
Eight people were arrested and three officers were injured Monday night when protesters clashed with police in downtown Portland in a rally against two recent officer-involved shootings. DETAILS: Police protests

For the second consecutive week a black bloc caused havoc in Portland in response to two police murders in the last two months. Aaron Campbell in late January, and Jack Dale Collins on March 22nd. According to Portland IMC’s timeline, the marchers evaded police, went through campus buildings at Portland State University, blockaded streets, smashed the window of a Bank of America, and finally made their way to a “justice center” where prisoners inside could be seen “showing solidarity fists, banging on the windows.” 8 people were arrested during the march.
Joel Dow, an anarchist arrested last week, is still in jail after his bail was set to an absurd $259,000.
