Rioters in Portland were caught on camera putting bibles and an American flag into a fire outside of the federal courthouse, which has been a focal point in the protests that have been ongoing for more than a month and a half, numerous sources reported.
Peaceful protests during the day reportedly transitioned into fires being set Friday night, largely without the presence of police or federal officers, according to KOIN.

Less than a week prior, protesters in Portland were setting fire to a Trump flag that was hanging on the fence of the federal courthouse, cheering as it fell to the ground. (RELATED: Portland Protesters Set Fire To Trump Flag)
Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler attended the protests and was hit with tear gas after rioters reportedly set the courthouse on fire.
The courthouse has been set on fire several times during the riots, which were prompted by the May 25 death of George Floyd while in Minneapolis police custody.
Gabriel Agard-Berryhill, 18, was charged with arson for allegedly setting the courthouse on fire Tuesday.

Mostly Peaceful Riots Leave Cities Mostly Not In Flames [Satire]
The following is mostly satirical.
The mostly peaceful violence in Portland continues as Joe Biden voters and other Democrats continue to mostly not riot leaving the city mostly not in flames.
The protesters, who are mostly idealistic young people except during those few hours when they are destructive thugs, mostly did not assault unarmed elderly people leaving most of the local elderly not terrorized or covered in paint.
Most of the time the mobs of usually not rampaging masked marauders were mostly not shining lasers into the eyes of policemen in attempts to blind them. And they could very often be seen not setting local stores on fire as when they were trying to destroy government buildings which they were mostly not doing either.
Around the country, journalists were mostly not reporting on what the mostly peaceful rioters were mostly not doing.
And in fact the journalists themselves spend only about a third of the day at work and so are mostly not spreading disinformation like hideous, bottom-feeding swamp creatures who have somehow evolved the capacity to lie with completely straight faces — unless, of course, they also lie to their friends and families in which case they’re mostly not mostly not hideous, bottom-feeding swamp creatures but mostly are. Which would mostly not be surprising.
For example, the New York Times, a former newspaper, mostly didn’t report the mostly peaceful havoc being mostly not wreaked by the mostly peaceful Democrat thugs and other Joe Biden voters in Seattle.
But then suddenly, the New York Times did report the mostly peaceful destruction that left most of the city not a shambles, so that many Times readers said, “Whoa, I’ve been mostly lied to and am now mostly ignorant about what’s mostly going on because I’ve mostly been reading the New York Times and now mostly feel like a schnook.”
The mostly peaceful riots will mostly not spread into residential areas so that residents will mostly not be terrorized in their homes.
So that’s mostly great. Until the person terrorized happens to be you.
