DoJ Explored Options of Charging Local Portland Officials With Crimes Over Riots

Scores of Americans have watched the endless, chronic unrest in Portland from afar all summer long and the obvious civil rights violations against supporters of President Donald Trump, not to mention against Portland residents and business owners.

Many have been wondering what, if anything, anyone could do to hold the city’s elected officials accountable.


As it turns out, folks at the Department of Justice were contemplating the same thing.

Fox News reports: 

The Justice Department explored possible criminal or civil charges against local officials in Portland, Ore., after weeks of clashes between federal law enforcement and violent protesters, spokeswoman Kerri Kupec told Fox News.

Kupec declined to comment on whether the department ultimately will bring charges. She said there were no specific charges in mind, rather, DOJ officials were looking at the way Portland officials “were handling, or not handling” the riots and violence.

She also would not say which elected leaders, in particular, were being singled out for potential criminal charges.

That said, clearly, someone should be held responsible for the violence committed not just against anyone who dares to disagree with the Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs besieging parts of the city on a nightly basis. 

But that's not likely to happen anytime soon, given the, um, liberal nature of the city and the state in general. Voters there are so Left-wing they elected a governor, Kate Brown, who just appointed a district attorney, Mike Schmidt, who immediately implemented a 'new policy' of declining to prosecute people for destroying, attacking, burning, and rioting -- including against federal officers sent there in July to protect a U.S. courthouse.

What’s his background? He’s a former public school teacher-turned criminal justice ‘reformer.’

"DA Mike Schrunk gave me the opportunity to work for the Legislature in 2013. I got the 'policy bug' after spending that session in Salem. My experiences as counsel for the Judiciary Committees showed me firsthand how we can change the laws in our system. I knew I could do the most good for Oregonians working on statewide criminal justice policy, so I decided to continue my career with the Criminal Justice Commission,” he says in a Q&A posted to the Multnomah County DA site

What does he want? Oh, to create mayhem.

"In two to four years, I hope some of our state laws have changed. I’d like to see the end of cash bail. I’d like to see the end of mandatory minimum sentencing practices," he said.

"And I will be working with the Legislature to advocate for those changes, among others. I will make a difference by showing up. I will show up in Salem to advocate for reform. I will show up in the community to listen to what a broader, more inclusive vision of public safety means for everyone."

We see what his ‘showing up’ has done. Portland-based indy journalist Andy Ngo routinely posts mug shots of rioters (sorry – ‘peaceful protesters’) on his social media pages showing how many times they have been arrested, rearrested, and re-released without having to bond out and without having to ever worry about defending themselves in court…because Schmidt doesn’t charge them.

That’s ‘reform,’ alright. No wonder DoJ is looking at intervening there; someone has to enforce the laws.
