“They are acting like an uncontrolled mob on the street with uniforms and badges that they don’t show. You shouldn’t — police don’t do this. Watch this! What kind of bullshit is this?! This is a shame.”
– Lte. Gen. Russel Honoré (U.S. Army, ret.), on the “11th Hour with Brian Williams”, responding to news footage of federal agents using batons, tear gas and other items to combat protesters in Portland, Oregon.
Among those injured was U.S. Navy veteran Chris David who had been trying to talk to police and suffered a broken arm in the chaos. Honoré led the recovery in New Orleans after the Hurricane Katrina catastrophe, which occurred in the midst of another disastrous Republican presidential administration.
