Portland has been in the headlines countless times, and not for good reasons.
Madness continues to decend on the city, and now a 30 minute video has been released showing what took place during the riots on Augst 16th.
Our friends at Fox News gives us an overview:
A 30-minute video of the attack on a man in Portland late Sunday was released Wednesday, showing a large crowd taunting, beating and robbing a transgender woman before setting its sights on the truck driver and another woman.
The footage, which contains graphic images and explicit language, was released on YouTube by "Lives Matter" producer Drew Hernandez. The video appears to show a group of people, including suspect Marquise Love, 25, taunting a transgender woman who they claim was spraying Mace at them.
Over the course of several minutes, the victim, who is wearing a blue shirt with a round logo on the front, can be seen in the background amongst the crowd, until he steps in minutes later.
People from the group appear to steal the woman’s skateboard and then her backpack as she and members from the crowd continued to have words with each other.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Police in Portland said Tuesday they have identified a suspect accused of punching and kicking a man to the ground after he crashed his pickup truck on a sidewalk near ongoing demonstrations.
Authorities had received a report around 10:30 p.m. Sunday of protesters chasing a truck a few blocks from the downtown federal courthouse. The driver crashed and was then assaulted, authorities said.
Authorities are trying to track down the suspect, Marquise Love, 25, police said in a statement. The victim of the assault has been released from a hospital and is recovering, the statement said.
Video posted online showed the driver of the truck sitting in the street next to the vehicle. A crowd gathered around him and repeatedly punched and kicked him in the head until he was bloody. It wasn’t immediately clear what led to the crash or the confrontation.
When police arrived, the man was unconscious.
A social media account apparently connected to Love has been disabled and efforts to locate him for comment were not immediately successful.
Demonstrations that often turn violent have racked Oregon’s biggest city for more than two months following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
On Monday night, authorities said people marched to the police union building and tried to break into the facility.
