Portland Police declared a riot on July 2 after a number of flash-points between police and protesters were reported around the Multnomah County Justice Center and an adjacent courthouse.

Police said a riot was declared shortly before midnight after "large rocks, full cans, and bottles" were thrown at officers.

A sharp and funny battle of wits ensues between the mother-daughter duo, as Lumir takes issue with Fabienne's rose-colored version of the past.
