Cop-hating protesters started a fire outside Portland’s police union headquarters after scrawling “Nazis work here” on the wall, according to officials and videos.
The blaze was ignited by a group of “about 40 people” gathered outside the Portland Police Association HQ early Sunday, the city’s force said.

Videos online showed wood and tree branches on fire in front of a wall covered in anti-police graffiti — including the message “Nazis work here.”

Other walls were sprayed with a picture of a pig, the words “cops are murderers” as well as “ACAB,” a widely used Antifa slur standing for “all cops are b–tards.”
