Nearly forgotten amid a daily barrage of headlines about social unrest, the global pandemic and economic ills is the riot that hit downtown Portland on May 30. Under the cover of a Black Lives Matter demonstration, looters broke into retail stores all over downtown Portland. Some retailers are bitter that police officers didn’t take a more forceful stand against the looters. Notice in this footage from Kassab Jewelers security system the motorcycle cop stopping outside, peering at the wreckage inside, and then riding away. The hours of smash-and-grab were another difficult blow for downtown retailers already hurt by homelessness, the coronavirus and recession.
