A detainee escaped from a Portland Police van at a protest in downtown Portland, Oregon earlier tonight (see video below). We do not know who he is or how he escaped, but we do know that he is fast. So fast that as far as we can tell he has not been caught. The crowd yelled “run” as police officers weighed down with riot gear tried to catch up with him, but he was always a few steps ahead.
This is one of those funny moments when even blue backers can agree that some cop did not do his job. Hopefully this guy was just a protester and not a murderer (https://copblaster.com/hashtag/michael-reinoehl/) or a child molester (https://copblaster.com/blast/25873/portland-stabber-blake-david-hampe-has-child-porn-conviction) like other protest attendees have turned out be.
