#1 I wonder what they mean by 'damages'. At first I thought the cops might have surveyed the CHAZ / CHOP area and estimated property damage. There's also (further) financial damage with respect to closed businesses, businesses running at less than 100%, etc.

Down the road, I think it will be very possible to correlate the damage done by rioters and the resulting drop in businesses and population decline. Either way, businesses will be leaving larger cities one way or the other. For instance, Boston had rioting for two or three days and that was limited largely to the Back Bay and some areas around City Hall. By way of comparison, NYC, Portland, Seattle and Milwaukee have been both more frequent (in days), higher participant numbers and much worse in physical damage. Most likely outcome for those cities - they're future Detroits.

#2 I thought CHAZ was in Seattle, not Portland. The damage in Seattle must be much greater.

#3 Self defeating strategy to burn out the nests where your behavior is tolerated or encouraged. Resistance and push back in other places especially by awakening vigilance groups will be more dynamic than the passivity so far. It doesn’t take long to figure out that when selective law enforcement doesn’t protect you, why bother to obey it. What follows is the release of pent up anger from those that have been holding it back out of respect for. system that suddenly appears to be failing. Seems my prepper friends may have been prescient after all.
