Black-Owned Restaurant Shot Up for Being Pro-Police, Owner Says

Vandals shot through the windows of a cafe owned by a black Army veteran during a demonstration in Portland, Oregon, on Sunday because of the cafe’s pro-police stance, the owner said.

The incident occurred a few days after owner John Jackson said someone called the Heroes American Cafe on Thursday to say it was on a list of pro-police establishments and he should expect something to happen because of it.

“We kind of dismissed it as whatever,” the veteran said, according to the New York Post.
