A thick-skinned Portland protester seems to endure a flurry of police batons and pepper spray with out rarely a flinch — then presents cops a pair of middle fingers as he turns his back to them and saunters off, wild video shot outside the house the town’s federal courthouse exhibits.
Footage posted to Twitter displays the burly masked protester in a Navy sweatshirt confidently stride away from cops while giving them a pair of just one-finger salutes after using many blows to his entire body and pepper spray to his face.
The clip commences with 1 officer shoving the demonstrator away, who refuses to budge amidst a backdrop of smoke and burning particles.
A different cop then comes in excess of, winds up and thwacks his remaining arm and leg at least 3 moments with a baton.
When that fails, the cops crack out the pepper spray — which at last does the trick of having the male to transfer away from the sidewalk.
The gentleman identified himself as a “local veteran,” according to the Portland Tribune, whose reporter to start with posted the clip on Twitter.
The guy “remained rooted in location like an oak,” the neighborhood outlet remarked.
The unnamed protester explained to the Tribune the incident left him with a broken knuckle and two broken fingers.
