Reading through Andy Ngô’s Twitter feed is a walk through an alternate reality where the Rule of Law has completely disappeared from Portland, Oregon. Here’s a short list of [alleged] Antifa thugs who were charged but released without bail:
- Rosemary Lawrence, 30
- Hannah Rose Fewster, 24, a preschool teacher
- Jude Kenneth Leonard, 18
- Amanda Melissa Ruiz, 34
- Jacob Soto, 41, a band teacher at a Portland public school
- Lori Eberly, 46, a licensed clinical social worker
- Paul Michael Losch, 39
- Joshua Warner, 25
- Reid Bramble, 42
Based on recent history, all charges for every one of these folks will likely be dismissed. They magically all seem to have Get Out of Jail Free cards.
With a few minor exceptions, the citizens of Portland have consistently voted in Democrat mayors since 1957 and the citizens of Oregon have entirely voted in Democrat governors since 1987. They can live in a state of denial and blame anyone they want but ultimately the real blame rests entirely with them. Elections do indeed have consequences.
