Should Sport in Portland Help Prevent Possible Civil War? (Not Fucking Joking)

So it looks like its only a matter of time until the Federal Courthouse is stormed and the employees inside the building are either physically assaulted or worse.

But should the sports teams of Portland help to quell the tensions and prevent the federal law officers from being forced out of the city of Portland.

Currently, the courthouse is besieged and if the protestors do get inside it could see serious injuries or even worse caused to federal employees.

With the state police declaring they will not protect the building someone needs to step in before many people are seriously injured or killed.

Sport can have a serious influence over society, especially locally and hopefully someone within the local area can intervene to calm the protests and prevent potential bloodshed.

Portland is not bestowed with the biggest sports teams but if the Timberwolves, Trail Blazers and Thorns combine together they may be able to create a message loud enough which prevents another violence.

If the protestors do get inside the building it could trigger a serious inside with major loss of life.

Now the lines of where civil war is triggered is always unclear.  However, one definition of a civil war which can be found online is:

 The aim of one side may be to take control of the country or a region, to achieve independence for a region or to change government policies.

With federal government forced out of Portland by a large group of protestors, it could be argued that the unwinding of a civil war has begun in the city.

Hopefully, the protestors revert to protesting peaceably as per the constitution of America and do not storm the Federal offices.  It’s almost certain blood will be shed if that happens.
