OREGON RESIDENTS ILLEGALLY STOPPING DRIVERS AT GUNPOINT DURING WILDFIRES

September 15, 2020

While much of an Oregon county is under an evacuation order due to wildfire rage, some residents have taken upon themselves to stop unfamiliar drivers in the area at gunpoint over suspicions of looting.

Clackamas County sheriff, Craig Roberts, said, several people in the county, in efforts to “protect property,” had been conducting armed checkpoints, stopping cars they didn’t recognize.

As of Friday, September 11th, there were at least five wildfires burning in Clackamas County but, some residents living in those evacuation zones aren’t leaving their homes. They are staying to “defend” their property.
