The video was captured by journalist Andy C. Ngo and shows an older gentleman in a Lexus turning at an intersection occupied by a host of Antifa protesters. After making the turn against the orders of the protesters, a mob chases the Lexus down the street banging on the car, even going so far as to break a window. Officers reportedly watched the incident unfold from a block away.

The hysteria arose after more than 100 protesters took to the Portland streets to rally against the death of Patrick Kimmons, who was fatally shot by police after a gunfight which left two men wounded, according to Fox News.

The Washington Times reported that Wheeler still believes that “motorists should feel completely safe coming into downtown Portland.”

The lack of a more forceful denunciation by Mayor Wheeler and a non-existent police response may have contributed to the massive street brawl that followed Saturday night.

Right-wing organizers scheduled a Patriot Prayer Rally outside Kelly’s Olympian, a bar that’s been a staple of downtown since the early 20th century. Antifa members showed up with weapons, looking for a fight. 

From there, things got worse.
