Four People Arrested and Several Injured During Antifa Rally in Oregon
PORTLAND – August 6, 2018
Robert J. Majure, 27, Tracy L Molina, 45, Tristan I. Rominemann, 28, and Joseph C. Evans, 34, all – the activists of left-wing organizations, were arrested during an antifa rally in Oregon, local media reports.
Throughout the day, Portland police released images of weapons collected from both sides, including knives, sticks, shields and fireworks. Unlike past demonstrations, however, Saturday's dueling events never turned into the melee that many had predicted.
Chief Danielle Outlaw said any complaints would be forwarded to the Office of Independent Police Review.
"This morning I learned of allegations of injury as a result of law enforcement action," Outlaw said in a statement. "I take all force applications by members seriously and I have directed the Professional Standards Division to begin the intake process regarding these allegations to determine if force was used and if so, was within our policy and training guidelines."
Despite the statements from the police, it should be stated that in recent times left-wing activists have been increasingly targeted by law enforcement.
