Portland Police Chief Danielle Outlaw is calling for an “anti-mask” law to deter the throngs of Antifa protesters that descended upon the city on Saturday.
“We have to do something differently,” Outlaw said at a press conference for the first time since Saturday’s protests, the Oregonian reported.
“There were entities that planned a brawl in the city of Portland and no one seems to be upset about that. … Entities came here for a fight. … I don’t even know what they were protesting against.” she told reporters.
Outlaw called for a law that would bar demonstrators from wearing masks if they are going to commit crimes.
“We cannot allow people to continue to use the guise of free speech to commit a crime,’’ Outlaw said. “A lot of people are emboldened because they know they can’t be identified.’’
