Portland Navy veteran called "Man of Steel" was attacked by a member of federal squad for doing nothing in the shocking video

362

An Oregon Navy veteran did nothing criminal or it’s better to say did nothing at all to be beaten with a baton and pepper sprayed in the face by the federal squad member.

53-year-old Chris David said he “stood there with my hands down by my side, and they just started whaling on me” in the incident that happened on Saturday night during the protest in Portland.

The Portland Tribune released a video of the incident, involving the vet and the armed squad sent to Portland by Trump’s administration.

“I felt these gentlemen were violating their oath of office” — to uphold the Constitution — “and I wanted to talk to them,” David told the Portland Tribune.

When the baton didn’t affect David, one of the military dressed squad members sprayed two blasts of tear gas into his face. David said it felt like “a gallon of burning gasoline.” David said at that moment he lost his vision and had to retreat.

He received a medical aid from a “street medic angel,” and was taken to a hospital, and despite the fact that his hand was broken in two places he said that he planned to go back.

“It won’s stop me,” he said, adding that he is 100% against the federal squads in the city.

A real “Man of Steel,” as he was named on the video.

“I’m a 53-year-old overweight man on blood thinners, and I’ve got a lot of physical damage from my years in the military,” he said. “I’m no man of steel. They could have killed me ... as my ex-wife and my daughter have reminded me 45 times.”

“It’s just us normal people out there,” he told The Washington Post. “You hear people like Trump say it’s just a bunch of wacko fringe people in liberal cities who are out there, but no way. We’re all just normal people who think what’s happening is wrong.”

After the video went viral David received an outpouring of offers of help but he refused urging people to help the BLM movement and the medic group that helped him.
