Free From His Own Proscriptions, Ted Wheeler Applies Some Pepper Spray

Portland has been subjected to well over 100 riots over the past year. Mayor Ted Wheeler has forbidden the police to use tear gas to keep them under control. From September:

Wheeler, who was also gassed during a protest earlier this year, made the announcement saying “we need something different” to quell more than three months of nightly unrest in Portland following the May 25 police custody death [probably from overindulging in fentanyl] of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

However, chemical agents are okay if brandished by liberal politicians, as Wheeler did Sunday night:

Robert King, Senior Policy Advisor on Public Safety for Wheeler … notified the [Portland Police Bureau] that Wheeler had been involved in an incident in which “WHEELER used pepper spray against an unknown person.” …

According to Wheeler’s statement, he was leaving the Hillsdale McMenamin’s pub, and was confronted by a middle-aged male, who was taking video of Wheeler with a cell phone.

The male suggested he “had been photographing” Wheeler while he was inside the restaurant. The male accused Wheeler of not wearing a mask.

Presumably a constituent, the guy followed him to his car and would not get out of his face, so Wheeler “pulled out my pepper spray and I sprayed him in the eyes.”

Wouldn’t it be nice if police could do the same to rioters? Civil order might be restored.

Neither Wheeler nor [his companion former Portland mayor Sam] Adams indicated that the man who was sprayed posed an imminent threat or had physically threatened him, only that he was “in close proximity.”

But Wheeler fretted that he could have caught COVID-19 from him.

Let that be a lesson to the public. Even Ted Wheeler can be pushed only so far!
