Portland stabbing suspect shouts 'Free speech or die' in court

Portland stabbing suspect shouts 'Free speech or die' in court

Christian did not enter a plea during his first appearance Tuesday, and he is set to be formally arraigned on June 7, Lane Borg, executive director of Metropolitan Public Defenders, told ABC News.

If you are a grown-ass person who has been able to gin up social media stomping outrage over the former but has remained silent and "prayerful" over the latter, you are a awful f**king person and I worry for your soul. Christian attacked the men with a knife, killing Namkai-Meche and Best, and leaving Johnson badly wounded.

An emotional Micah Fletcher said in a six-minute video on his Facebook page that Portland has a "white savior complex" and residents are heaping praise on him, but the real victims are the women. Death to Antifa! You call it terrorism, I call it patriotism!

Authorities say Christian started verbally abusing two young women, including one wearing a hijab.

One of the girls was wearing a headscarf and is believed to be Muslim.

A United States civil rights group report documented almost 900 such incidents in the 10 days following Trump's being elected president last November.

Taliesin died a hero, like many other Americans who have died defending freedom.

According to The Oregonian, a witness to the stabbings said Namkai-Meche's last words before being taken away by paramedics were, "Tell everyone on this train I love them".

"The Muslim community, especially in Portland, needs to understand that there are a lot of us that are not going to stand by and let anybody - whether they are from here or not - scare you into thinking you can't be a part of this town, this city, this community, or this country", he told ABC. He has three prior felonies.

Rodriguez missed Boston's first 51 games a year ago while on the disabled list with a right patella (kneecap) subluxation. Eduardo Rodriguez is headed to the DL. "I just threw a pitch and my foot got in a bad position and I went down".

Christian said he was transient and "does not know the last time he had a permanent address".

TEMPLETON: Police say that they are investigating what they call his extremist beliefs.

Relatives of a man accused of killing two people in OR have offered their condolences to the families of the two men who were stabbed to death after defending two women from an anti-Muslim rant.

Deliverance says she is grieving but proud of her son's selfless action.

Micah Fletcher, 21, was also stabbed but survived and was in court, his healing neck wound clearly visible. Locals are invoking the name of Mulugeta Seraw, an Ethiopian student killed by white supremacists with a baseball bat in front of his Portland apartment in 1988.

Friday's attack happened on the first day of Ramadan - the Muslim holy month, marked by daily fasting from dawn to sunset - and is the latest in a series of apparent hate crimes in the region.

President Donald Trump's unequivocal condemnation - "The violent attacks in Portland on Friday are unacceptable". The victims were standing up to hate and intolerance.

Numerous early settlers to OR were from Southern states and brought with them negative attitudes about blacks, Gibson said.
