Protesters burn government building during riot in Portland

Protesters in Portland marched to a government building Tuesday night, smashing windows and setting an office ablaze in what authorities called a riot.

The demonstrators descended on the Multnomah Building, which houses county government operations, and hurled rocks through the front glass doors while setting fires outside the building, officials said.

Once a hole was punctured in the windows, protesters appeared to toss flaming materials inside the building — setting the office ablaze.

“@PortlandPolice has declared the gathering near the Multnomah Building a riot after individuals vandalized, repeatedly smashed first floor windows with rocks and threw burning material into an office,” read a tweet from the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office.

After declaring the assembly unlawful, Portland cops asked all gathered to disperse. The protesters appeared to be calling for the abolition of police and prisons.

Portland has seen an uptick in violence in recent weeks as protests against the police killing of George Floyd have descended several times into violence and destruction. It was the city’s 83rd straight night of unrest, according to the Oregonian.

Default Why Mobs Are Torching Sri Lanka Politicians’ Homes

By Sadanand Dhume
May 12, 2022 6:37 pm ET



A combination of Covid, energy price hikes and government-mandated organic farming brought a popular tourist spot to the brink of chaos.

Sri Lanka is back in the news—for all the wrong reasons. On Monday besieged Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa resigned after weeks of protests, amid a cratering economy and violent clashes between government supporters and antigovernment protesters in the capital, Colombo.

At least eight people have died in the violence, and some 200 were injured. Rampaging mobs torched more than 50 houses, including the ancestral home of the Rajapaksa clan, a family that has dominated Sri Lankan politics for nearly two decades. Rioters have set up roadblocks on the way to the airport to prevent politicians from fleeing the country.

James, who was at the time specialising in corporate law, recalled one incident that put him off. A senior lawyer had bought a watch that cost a “few hundred thousands” and was bragging about it.

He found out through his fellow associates that it was not an isolated incident either, as their bosses were similarly making large purchases for homes and cars.

“It’s not nice knowing that you’re slaving away, buying into this idea that we need to be financially prudent during COVID, and yet you have so many bosses (making extravagant purchases) because they don’t have to pay out these additional bonuses.”

Such behaviour was what led several associates to leave the firm, said James

PI/PD is chill. Most cases are settled at CDR or ADCDR. But the volume and the depressing nature of the work may kill you

How Unlawful Assemblies Could Become Cradles For Birthing A Successful Opposition \
Disrespecting Rule of Law in 1950s [Internal Security Regulations], Did The Ends Justify the Means? \

In 1953, Dr Goh Keng Swee, Dr Toh Chin Chye, S. Rajaratnam, K. M. Byrne and Lee Kuan Yew began meeting on Saturday afternoons in the basement dining room of 38 Oxley Road to consider the feasibility of forming a political party...

These meetings were held secretly, as the internal security regulations then forbade such political meetings.

Dr Toh recalled that Ong Eng Guan suggested burying the minutes of the meetings in the garden.

You do it because (1) you work in a practice which involves US laws, and (2) you work (or want to work) in a firm which will pay you Cravath for your work.

actually sounds like cool story bro moment leh.

A firm with bunch of braggy partners and associates leaving because of this reason? Sounds embellished for the article.

Associates leave all the time but "several associates" leaving because of a few boastful partners? Lame.

Not like this industry isn't full of egoistical braggarts from top to bottom anyway
