A careful viewer shared this with us, saying he noticed something familiar in this campaign ad by New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson, running for president this fall as the Libertarian candidate: the Ross Dress for Less in downtown Portland—defended by a phalanx of riot cops, presumably during some kind of Occupy protest.
It's about 1:07 or so into the video and lasts only for a few seconds.
Why Portland? Why not? It must've been because of how scary our riot cops look when compared to cops in other cities. Because I just don't think of this as a place where the state and local goons might be coming in to take away sick people's medicine, etc.
