Where are the federal “police” (or whatever they technically are) camping while they enjoy their visit to Beautiful Downtown Portland?
Are some or all of them local residents, or at least within the state? Are some or most of them imported from elsewhere in the country? Where do they sleep? Where do they eat? Where do they get their supplies of tear gas and pepper balls? Do they have a massive stockpile there in the federal courthouse?
How about the local and state police lay siege to them? Instead of tearing down the barricades around the court, enforce them instead. Keep the feds inside. Don’t let any food or other supplies in. Cut off the electricity, water, and whatever other utilities are there. Put a ring of local police, state police, protesters, moms and dads around the perimeter. Settle in for the long haul and just wait.
Would that be (a) doable? (b) effective?
(No, discobot, my topic is not similar to “Using a cell phone from US within UK”)
