According to Reuters, “Police shot and killed an anti-fascist activist on Thursday as they moved in to arrest him for the alleged fatal shooting of a right-wing activist in Portland, Oregon, last weekend, officials said.” The fugitive who executed a counter protester in Portland Oregon was being arrested on Thursday night in Lacy, WA, when he brandished a weapon and threatened the police. Shots were fired from the officers into the suspect’s car. He than go out of the vehicle and fled on foot, when police fired another round of shots to stop the suspect from fleeing with a dangerous weapon.
The 96th day of violence in Portland Oregon has resulted in more people losing their lives as state leaders chose to ignore the obvious. Mayor Ted Wheeler recently announced he will be moving from his $800,000 condo after the building was attacked by violent ANTIFA terrorists. They also attempted to burn the building with fireworks, even though the people who also live in the residence were inside and asleep. No city leaders have condemned the violence while ANTIFA continues to assault citizens and burn looted items stolen from local businesses. But the death of Aaron Danielson should have convinced local leaders that their inaction is killing people. And now the death tole from the BLM riots reaches 34 with the numbers continuing to grow by the week.
This isn’t the only time gunfire has been heard during the riots, with local police temporarily detaining two people after a gunshot, and federal agents tackling and detaining at least six protesters before seizing weapons and shields from their encampment.
