Rioters Are Escalating Violent Tactics To Illegally Detain And Assault Drivers That Pass Through Violent Riots
Update: A month ago, Nationalist Review released this article and warned readers that the protesters were beginning to assemble these makeshift road spikes. Today, we can report that the first recorded instance of their use has been documented in Portland with at least one Police vehicle suffering significant damage.
“Because of the danger posed by these projectiles, officers used crowd control munitions as they moved the group. Pool noodles (photo) were filled with nails by members of the group and placed on the roadway in an effort to damage police vehicle tires. One police vehicle suffered extensive tire damage.” Original article follows:
Wannabe vigilantes have been hard at work this past week crafting various means to disable vehicles trying to evade them at their illegal riots. In their latest effort, Twitter user “Shan McSkansky” proposed the utilization of makeshift road spikes created from pool noodles and nails. Previously, Antifa rioters had suggested using an emergency glass breaker in order to pull out drivers and beat them (see below).
Here’s the Tweet (archived) with the DIY instructions:

When the user was asked what the purpose of flattening the head of the nail was, the explained that they wanted to cause enough damage to the tire so that the nail would not plug the hole it created.
i want to make a hole that cant be plugged by the nail itself. hammering makes the cut in the tread too big for the nail to fill— Shan McSkansky (@shanmcskansky) July 8, 2020
This method seemed even too destructive for some sympathetic antifa supporters who suggested using paint to “tag” the vehicle instead:
My suggestion is just throwing paint on these cars. At least your tagging the car and no one gets hurt. Protesters can feel like they tagged this assholes and you shitheads can still leave and feel safe.— I only tweet when I’m drunk. (@Vierock2) July 8, 2020
Sidenote your car being damaged does not give you the right to pull a gun.
Earlier this week, Antifa operatives suggested using emergency glass breakers to remove drivers from vehicles and “give them a beat down”
