Candidate for Chief of SPD Has Experience Dealing With Eugene Anarchists During Operation Backfire

From KTTH Conservative Talk Radio

Among the four candidates to become Seattle’s next police chief, do any
have the expertise to deal with the community of anarchists here that
terrorize private property each May Day and sometimes on random days?

One candidate does. Robert Lehner was formerly the chief in Eugene, Ore.,
dubbed the “anarchist capital of the world.”

The city in central Western Oregon, home of the University of Oregon,
attracted anarchists and eco-terrorists from all over the nation in the
1990s. The anarchists made their home in the city’s Whiteaker neighborhood,
terrorizing residents by riding around town on bikes, smashing windows,
apparently on a campaign to “reclaim the streets.”
