Cops killing the Antifa who killed the Patriot Prayer guy should help to calm tensions in Portland.
Law enforcement agents shot and killed an antifa supporter on Thursday as they moved to arrest him in the fatal shooting of a right-wing activist who was part of a pro-Trump caravan in Portland, Ore., officials said.
The suspect, Michael Forest Reinoehl, 48, was shot by officers from a federal fugitive task force during the encounter in Lacey, Wash., southwest of Seattle, according to four law enforcement officials familiar with the investigation.
Lt. Ray Brady of the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office said in an interview that the law enforcement team was in the area looking for a homicide suspect — he could not confirm it was Mr. Reinoehl — and that the suspect exited an apartment and got into a vehicle.
“As they attempted to apprehend him, there was gunfire,” Lieutenant Brady said. He said four law enforcement officers fired their weapons.
Lieutenant Brady said the Sheriff’s Office, which is investigating the shooting, heard that the suspect was carrying a gun, but he did not immediately know whether the suspect fired a weapon.
An arrest warrant had been issued by the Portland police earlier Thursday, on the same day that Vice News published an interview with Mr. Reinoehl in which he appeared to admit to the shooting, saying, “I had no choice.”
That was really edgy when VICE interviewed the murderer.
Cool guys, VICE News.
A successful martyr has been created for Antifa, and they’ve now not only normalized but romanticized killing Trump supporters randomly, running, shooting at the cops.
Basically, we’re looking at a civil war type situation unfolding when the election is contested.
You should probably get ready for that.
