Mayor Wheeler “Actions of rioters unconscionable, don’t honor George Floyd”

Mayor Ted Wheeler said the riot in downtown Portland, protesting the death of George Floyd, was “unconscionable.”

The mayor continued to share his frustrations as he said,  “What I see here does not honor in any way the legacy of George Floyd.” Wheeler did acknowledge what he calls a  “beautiful and heartfelt” gathering by the NAACP that took place earlier.

When asked if he’ll advocate for aggressive prosecution of rioters, Wheeler replied, “Damn right.”
