It might sound like fear-mongering, but here’s the truth of it. Portland isn’t lost….yet. But if you think you’re small town or suburb can take the damage that the Rose City is taking on a daily basis, if you think your small-town sheriff’s department will hold back groups of rioters, then you haven’t been to Portland lately, or you’re part of the group that has. If the big cities burn down, all that’s left are the smaller towns. Think about that.
