Prosecutors: Portland man says he stabbed 3

Posted June 01, 2017

Nothing can describe the word "hero" better than the behavior of Rick Best, Taliesin Namkai-Meche and Micah Fletcher. He was released from the hospital Monday and attended the hearing, where a scar on his neck was visible.

Prosecutors say the man charged with stabbing three men aboard a Portland light-rail train confessed while in the back seat of a patrol auto after his arrest.

Jeremy Joseph Christian, 35, made repeated outbursts saying "you've got no safe place!" and "death to the enemies of America!"

If found guilty of the murder charges, Christian could face either life imprisonment or the death penalty.

His court-appointed attorney, Gregory Scholl, didn't immediately return a call.

"Free speech or die", Jeremy Christian yelled to a courtroom audience that included Micah Fletcher, the surviving victim of Christian's brutal knife attack aboard a Portland train.

Deputies escorted the man from the scene, prompting the group to lash out at law enforcement for protecting him.

Macy said she hopes to be in touch with both the Fletcher and Best families as well. "I can die in prison a happy man", the suspect told police while in custody following the crime.

"I go to reach out, to start pulling apart, and then I see that there's just blood everywhere", Robinson told CNN affiliate KATU. That's what I'm doing. I'm gonna say that on the stand. Fletcher says he's heartbroken for their families.

These rantings are similar to what Christian is reported to have shouted during the train attacks, including "Go home".

Two Native American men in Washington were also reportedly targeted on Saturday.

After scoring just six runs in their three previous games combined, the six-run third inning the Braves enjoyed looked massive. With Phillips' absence, the lineup moves up a slot, with Nick Markakis hitting second, Kemp third, and Matt Adams fourth.

Witnesses said three men were stabbed trying to calm Christian down as he verbally assaulted two teenage girls. One woman was wearing a hijab. The White supremacist continued a vile rant of hate as charges of two counts of aggravated murder, attempted murder, two counts of second-degree intimidation and a felon in possession of a weapon by the court clerk.

Christian recently gained local notoriety at a "Free Speech" march in Portland in April.

"Free speech or die, Portland". Christian said he dropped out of high school, but passed the high school equivalency exam known as the GED. Fletcher shoved Christian so hard Christian lost his balance and told him to get off the train, the affidavit said. Two of the victims died.

One of the teens is black. "If it is, in fact, determined that this was a hate crime it will add even more distress and sadness to our loss of this outstanding young man and the injury of the other".

"Once the suspects are identified, Quinault will prepare a motion to permanently exclude the individuals from ever entering the exterior boundaries of the Quinault Reservation", she told Native News Online.

"These fearless men saw the immediate injustice and didn't hesitate to act", she wrote. She and another man stayed by the recent college graduate's side, she told the Oregonian.

She also urged Trump to encourage all Americans to protect and watch out for one another and to condemn any acts of violence, which result directly from hate speech and hate groups. She says such a step would deeply honor her son's sacrifice.

On Tuesday, Wheeler reiterated his call to organizers of a June 4 protest to cancel, saying he fears they could further enflame tensions. A third man who tried to step in was also stabbed but survived.

The attack aboard a light-rail train happened Friday, the first day of Ramadan, the holiest time of the year for Muslims.

As a memorial to Friday's stabbing victims grew, one large chalk message stood out, streaked by rain under a gray sky: "Remember Mulugeta Seraw". "Our prayers are w/ them".
