Andy Ngo is an independent journalist covering Portland and you have seen his video posted here not too long ago.
So he was attacked by
Antifa Counter-Protesters and he did what any other peaceful citizen would do: Called the cops. But this is Portland where the police department is at the whim of Social Justice Warriors.
In the case of assault, the PD is right. According to Oregon’s Revised Statutes 2017 ORS 163.160¹ you must show injury so it would be considered an assault. o you need to have an awful bruise or perhaps show an impact with a bicycle lock in your dome so the charge can stick.
Anti Mask laws in the US are in 15 states (Florida being one, Chapter 876.12) and I could not find it in Oregon. There have been both winning and losing arguments about mask impeding freedom of speech so eventually this will arrive to SCOTUS one day.
Antifa Counter-Protesters will continue to exploit this loophole for all is worth. Between the law and bosses that will not let them enforce the law (We have commissioners on the records saying that cops make things worse by just being there and exciting the poor Antifa Counter-Protesters) but somehow they can go full balls to the wall if Patriot Prayer decides to return the violence in self-defense.
The next Liberal martyr will come out of Portland. Somebody will get tired of the crap and will end up providing the Bloody Hoodie and Bandana combo for the Left to wave in evidence of the exclusive violence on our side.
I also predict that it won’t work too well and possibly many other hoodies and bandanas will join the first one.
