The estate of a man who was shot and killed last year in Portland, Oregon is suing the city over how it approached public safety. 

According to the lawsuit, the mayor, Ted Wheeler, along with the District Attorney, the Police Commissioner and other city officials “created a vacuum where peacekeeping efforts and criminal accountability should be; in its place, an environment of vigilantism emerged that ultimately led to the death of Aaron Danielson.”

The lawsuit was filed in federal court in Portland and obtained by the Epoch Times. 

“Danielson was killed in Portland on Aug. 29, 2020. Michael Reinoehl, a self-described member of the far-left, anarcho-communist Antifa network, later admitted to shooting Danielson, who was wearing a hat bearing the logo of Patriot Prayer, a right-wing group, and has been described as a Patriot Prayer supporter,” according to the outlet. 

The groups clashed before the shooting took place, “with little intervention by police officers.”

Mayor Wheeler, who oversees the Portland Police Bureau, “chose to allow rioters to attack a federal courthouse in the city during the spring of 2020, triggering a deployment of federal officers to protect the building and leading to nightly clashes that drew nationwide attention.”

The rioters, which included members of Antifa, later turned their attention to other facilities, such as police precincts and the headquarters of the Portland police union. 

The lawsuit says the approach used by police and prosecutors, which involved arresting some of the left-wing activists but later having their cases dropped or not pursued by prosecutors, also included “delegating the authority to engage in crowd control and crime prevention to individuals who provided security services for Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and right-wing groups such as Patriot Prayer.”

The suit is seeking $13 million in damages.

Dinesh D’Souza RIPS Into The Left’s False Narrative Of The Kyle Rittenhouse Case

It’s a “window into the Left’s mentality” as they cover up for the crimes of Antifa.

I want to know why the city is not on trial for failing to protect its citizens. They stood down like so many others and watched their city burn;

This all falls on the governor’s failure to protect the citizens. President Trump offered help and he refused to hail the destruction of the city;

Wisconsin is ashamed of Binger and the team. Kyle should never have been charged. Our installed governor Evers is a Democrat/CCP puppet;

this should show all these black people in our country that have had similar malice from the prosecution that it doesn’t matter what color you are if given the opportunity or incentive to do so, they will do anything to have you convicted because they don’t admit to doing anything wrong. that’s why when wrongful death is on their hands you have to sue them to get anything back. and even then, you better have a good lawyer. when laws become so convoluted and loophole that you as a citizen have to have a lawyer to interpret them for you, it’s time that the laws be corrected by the uncorrupt. put a bunch of us with Asperger’s on it and we’ll have it cleaned up in no time: Followers’ Comments.
