Portland prosecutors announce charges for more than two dozen suspects linked to riots

Over the course of the past year, Portland, Oregon has been the scene of escalating violence and destructive riots.

Although local prosecutors initially dropped most charges against suspects involved, a recent development indicates an apparent change in favor of stricter law enforcement.

The latest round of charges

According to the Washington Examiner, about two dozen suspects are facing local or federal charges including assault, attempted murder, and weapons-related counts in connection to the riots.

KGW reported that Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt filed criminal charges this week against 10 individuals connected to three separate incidents. Some of them had previously had charges against them dropped only to be refiled.

Schmidt’s office issued a press release confirming that three of the suspects will be charged with rioting and criminal mischief stemming from a Nov. 8 riot at the Multnomah County Democratic Party headquarters.

Six more are facing various charges including the aforementioned counts in connection with a Jan. 20 incident at the state Democratic Party headquarters. One of the individuals is also charged with four counts of possessing a destructive device.

As for a riot that took place on April 23, suspect Sean Lopez is facing charges including attempted second-degree assault, first-degree burglary, unlawful use of a weapon, and two counts of first-degree criminal mischief.

Additional indictments

More than a week before announcing the latest development, Schmidt announced riot-related charges against four suspects connected to an unlawful assembly on May 25 — including a count of first-degree arson for one individual accused of pushing a dumpster against a county building and lighting it on fire.

At the federal level, the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced charges against four individuals, the most serious of which involves an Indiana man who allegedly traveled to Oregon multiple times to participate in riots. He faces counts related to throwing Molotov cocktails at police and handing out baseball bats to other rioters.

Three other individuals were indicted on federal charges including the destruction of government property stemming from incidents at the Mark O. Hatfield federal courthouse and an Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility.

Journalist Andy Ngo has long documented such alleged acts of violence by leftist agitators and highlighted details of the latest changes in his recent piece for the New York Post.

It is unclear why the number of riot-related charges has recently ticked upward, but critics of Portland law enforcement seem to have reason to believe some level of accountability will be applied to those responsible for widespread violence and destruction.
