Portland City Commissioner Dan Ryan voted against against defunding the police and tonight he heard from the people. A crowd of mostly peaceful protesters marched on his home expressing their outrage. They stood outside his house chanting Black Lives Matter slogans until the police that he voted to keep funding declared the protest an unlawful assembly and shut it down.
This protest was a direct response to Ryan breaking his campaign promise to support defunding the police. Instead he voted with Ted Wheeler against cutting the Portland Police Bureau's budget by $18 million.
We are including the location of this protest with this post because it creates a more accurate documentation of this protest. As always we ask that if anyone uses this information for future protests that they not damage property or harm people.
UPDATE: Due to news reports showing paint on the front of Ryan's home the day after the protest we updated this article to change the description of this protest from "peaceful" to "mostly peaceful." We have also posted some comments below explaining why damaging property during a mostly peaceful protest is not a good idea.
