“What happened in Portland over the weekend, it was not only unlawful and unconstitutional, it’s just plain wrong.

“You have a lot of peaceful demonstrators. The complaint filed by the Attorney General of Oregon against the Department of Homeland Security recounts horror stories of peaceful people being kidnapped, held blindfold, handcuffed, and incommunicado for just two hours and then let go.
“There is no reason to disturb those people. The people they should stop are the ones with the baseball bats. The federal government can’t do what it doesn’t have the authority to do. And it shouldn’t do anything without the coordination of the locals.” – Fox News analyst Andrew Napolitano.
