PORTLAND, OR –  Portland has descended into a level of lawlessness reminiscent of the Leonardo DiCaprio movie Gangs of New York as rival factions of woke street thugs are now robbing those who are there to help them.

When officers arrived they saw that an outdoor kitchen was heavily damaged (photos).
