A right-wing rally called “Summer of Love: Patriots Spreading Love not Hate” took place in a parking lot of a former Kmart and drew about 100 people. Tension increased when a van attempted to drive in, but crashed, KOIN-TV reported. There were “splinter groups” from left-wing counter-protests who confronted the right-wing group and the situation deteriorated at about 4 p.m., OregonLive.com reported. The report said both sides were armed with “bats, paintball guns and wooden spears.”
