The more info coming out on this guy is scary. So glad they locked him away. He is consumed with so much hatred. In the courthouse, he showed absolutely no remorse or respect for the victims or their families. Just horrible.
Happy New Year!

Prayers to the victims: [color=blue{Witness Recounts Final Words of Portland Stabbing Victim: ‘I Want Everyone on the Train to Know I Love Them’[/color] BY STEPHANIE PETITPOSTED ON MAY 30, 2017 AT 9:29AM EDT A woman who comforted Portland, Oregon, train stabbing victim Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche in his final moments says his last words were ones of kindness. Rachel Macy, who was riding the MAX train on Friday when Jeremy J. Christian allegedly stabbed three men, killing two, after they intervened when Christian harassed a Muslim woman, told local TV station KOIN that she comforted Namkai-Meche because she “just didn’t want him to be alone.” “I took my shirt off and put it on him. We held it together, I just prayed, all I could do was pray,” Macy told the station. “He said, ‘Tell them, I want everybody to know, I want everybody on the train to know, I love them,’ ” Macy added. “He was a beautiful man, that’s what I want people to know.” Macy attended a memorial gathering at the Hollywood Transit station honoring the victims. Thousands attended, including Namkai-Meche’s family.


Wow, that gave me chills. What an amazing person he was. rose




Agree. He lost his life trying to protect two women. He is surely s hero. His killer was a very, angry man who used his racist ideology, including his 'anti-Muslim' hatred to verbally attack those groups he held hate towards. He told the two Muslim women to go back to Saudi Arabia. So glad they caught that monster. He showed no remorse for his victims.

Mayor Ted Wheeler Asks Feds to Help Him Block Alt-Right "Free Speech" Rallies from Portland in Wake of Hate Slaying



The accused murderer, Jeremy Joseph Christian, was an enthusiastic participant in such events.(Edited for compliance)


“One disturbing trend is the rise of racist demonstrations, particularly from out-of-town elements,” says Mayor Ted Wheeler’s spokesman, Michael Cox. “Our message to those who want to come to Portland to spread hate is this: Stay home.” (Sam Gehrke)

By Aaron Mesh | Published May 29 at 12:12 PM

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler today asked the federal government to revoke permits for two "free speech" rallies planned by right-wing groups, saying the events would further inflame a city where a white supremacist is charged with murdering two people.

Events held around Portland this spring by the alt-right"—a collection of online agitators and white nationalists—have repeatedly turned into violent political standoffs between extremists on the left and right. The accused murderer, Jeremy Joseph Christian, was an enthusiastic participant.

Wheeler said he would not issue permits for the next two events, both planned for next week by Vancouver, Wash. online provocateur Joey Gibson. He said the federal government had permitted one rally in Terry Shrunck Plaza, which is federally owned, and asked the feds to revoke permission.

"Our city is in mourning," Wheeler said, "our community's anger is real, and the timing and subject of these events can only exacerbate an already difficult situation… I am calling on every elected leader in Oregon, every legal agency, every level of law enforcement to stand with me in preventing another tragedy."

Yeah, i was just listening to NPR and they were mentioning some of the comments that he made, right after being arrested. Also, apparently, sometime prior to him murdering two people, he tried to assault a woman, at random, by throwing a bottle at her. That dude has a lot of hate. And besides being sick(in a racist and criminal manner). He sounds mentally ill.



I feel really bad for the victims and their families. rose

Rest in Peace Bettie Boo. See u soon.

Ironic that this young man (hero), had won a poetry slam contest in high school, about prejudice against Muslims, and ends up being a victim of a man, who was attacking two women with anti-Muslim and racial slurs, while this hero tried to defend them.

Portland train stabbing victim: 'I'm just trying to heal and recover'


KGW-TV, PORTLAND, ORE.
8:08 a.m. EDT May 31, 2017


PORTLAND, Ore. — During an emotional interview Tuesday, one of three men stabbed during last week's attack on a Portland, Ore., light-rail train, said he's having a hard time processing what happened to him.

Micah Fletcher said he's unsure how to move on after the attack, so he's focusing on trying to get better.

Fletcher, who won a citywide poetry slam in high school for a poem that spoke out against prejudice faced by Muslims, said Portland can only heal from this tragedy if its citizens come together to assure that the city is a place where people can feel safe again.

"We're about to go through a very hard time. Things are happening, the world is changing," he said. "We need to remember that this is supposed to be a city where people can be safe, where children can play, where laughter can grow and where love can take roots in the soil.

"It's going to take us standing together as a community if you want that to be the Portland we live in," he said.

On Friday, Jeremy Christian, 35, allegedly stabbed three men who were trying to protect a Muslim woman and a black woman, after Christian shouted racial and anti-Muslim slurs at them.

A tragedy, for sure. As Chris Hayes pointed out, one victim was a Republican office-seeker, and the other attended one of the most liberal colleges in America- yet they united to stand up against bigotry and madness and violence, and lost their lives in the process

Without doubt he's mentally ill, no question. The person who started this thread has egg on their face.

There's only 6 states in the US that don't allow Open Carry: Cali, FL, IL, NY, SC, DC. While SC's gun murder rate is DOUBLE that of Texas, DC's is 6 TIMES that of Texas! https://en.m.wikipedia.or...s_by_state

Their killer had a history of verbally and physically attacking women as well. Shows you what kind of an insecure punk he is, and most men like that have personal and abusive issues with women period.

Couple that with his history of verbally attacking people, with his racial hatred in public. He let his racial hatred consume him. He may get the death penalty for his crime.

Let us hope tensions after the recent stabbing, don't cause harm to more people in Portland. Seems there is a rise in hate crimes of late there, according to this article.

Unease About White Supremacy Grows After Portland Stabbings

https://www.usnews.com/ne...r-in-court

The suspect in the fatal stabbing of two men who tried to protect two Muslim women being harassed on a light-rail train shouted "you call it terrorism I call it patriotism" during his first court appearance in Portland.

May 30, 2017, at 8:42 p.m.

By GILLIAN FLACCUS and STEVEN DUBOIS, Associated Press

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Unease about white supremacist activity in Portland deepened after the fatal stabbings of two men who tried to shield young women from an anti-Muslim tirade, and some people worry that the famously tolerant community could see a resurgence of the hostilities that once earned it the nickname "Skinhead City."

The attack aboard a light-rail train happened Friday, the first day of Ramadan, the holiest time of the year for Muslims. Authorities say Jeremy Joseph Christian started verbally abusing two young women, including one wearing a hijab. When three men on the train intervened, police say, Christian attacked them, killing two and wounding one.

Court documents released Tuesday for the first time mentioned a fourth man who was the first to intervene and was not attacked, but they did not identify him by his full name.

Christian, 35, was defiant during his brief initial court appearance Tuesday, shouting: "You call it terrorism, I call it patriotism!"

He made repeated outbursts, saying, "You've got no safe place!" and "Death to the enemies of America!"

Christian, who faces aggravated murder and other charges, didn't enter a plea. He has been appointed public defenders. Lane Borg, head of the local public defender agency, said the office was "saddened by this tragedy" but urged people to let the justice system take its course.

In the probable cause affidavit, prosecutors said video feeds in the back of a patrol car captured Christian saying after his arrest that he had stabbed three people in the neck. His court-appointed attorney, Gregory Scholl, did not immediately return a call for comment.

The deaths stunned the city, but also underscored nervousness about recent events, including a series of apparent hate crimes in the region and contentious public rallies that have drawn national attention.

The Pacific Northwest has a long and violent history of white supremacist and other racist activities, despite its more recent reputation for being one of the nation's most socially liberal regions.

"The idea that Portland is so liberal supersedes this dark, hidden secret about racism," said Karen Gibson, a professor of urban studies at Portland State University.

Many of the early settlers to Oregon were from Southern states and brought with them negative attitudes about blacks, Gibson said. Only about 6 percent of the Portland population is black, while more than 70 percent is non-Hispanic white, statistics show.

Some residents said President Donald Trump has caused those racist demons to stir again with his administration's travel ban, his promise to build a wall along the border with Mexico and his crackdown on illegal immigration.

Since Trump's election, Portland has led all major metropolitan areas in reported hate crimes, Mayor Ted Wheeler's office said.
(<--Wow who knew?)

"I don't have that feeling like it can't happen here — the way people talk about Portland — because we've got racism. We've got all kinds of things," said Murr Brewster, who came to see a memorial at the city's transit center.

"It's everywhere and the trouble is, it's getting more and more prevalent."

You have some serious stalker issues.
You have been stalking me and other Black orgers on this site for more than 2 years, and making false accusations and slander against us. There is help out there for you. You jump on a website not owned by you, and attack and tell Black orgers to stop posting here.

We already know about your admitted confession on this forum, when you told an African-American member on this site, in your words, that you racially-profiled Black Americans, that shopped in the store you worked in. So you already revealed your racial prejudice against Blacks on a public forum.I'm glad I have it 'on record' of you stalking me on this site. Stop taking your racial hatred against Blacks out on me. Get help.[/color][/b]

Exactly. He's the same guy that told you on this forum that he racially profiled Black males thst shopped in the store he worked in, and his long history here of verbally attacking, harassing, insulting and slandering Black American members in this forum, for discussing any topic regarding race. Just like he is doing right now. Pathetic. His intimidation tactics doesn't scare me. If topics such as this one, makes him jump on a website attacking people for posting or discussing it, then that's a problem he has to work on himself.
