This past weekend federal officers in unmarked vehicles bearing no identifying markers, besides “POLICE”, descended upon Portland, Oregon to quell mass unrest, and detain protestors. The only question is – what is the truth? A tacit reading of both The New York Times and The Wall St. Journal point to two very different interpretations of the ‘facts”. While the former purports a beginning of a secret police, detaining without warrant, the latter describes federal officers responding in tandem to violence, detaining protestors and reading their Miranda rights. So what is going on and what does it have to do with the Presidents recent executive orders?
