On Saturday, leftist rioters in Portland murdered a counter protester. The victim Aaron Danielson was with the conservative group called Patriot Prayer. This morning, The Oregonian is reporting
Groups or individuals seeking to retaliate didn’t materialize Sunday despite chatter online and concerns aired by Portland officials earlier in the day.
Now why would that be? Given the failure of the local prosecutor to go after the protestors who have terrorized the city for months, why haven’t we seen a violent outburst from some rightwing group?
I believe the reason is that groups such as Patriots Prayer believe in the rule of law, that they expect the police to arrest a murder suspect, and that they expect that even the pro-rioter DA will draw the line at murder and prosecute the crime. I believe the people of Portland are waiting to see if justice will be done.
I wouldn’t want to be in Portland if the DA declines to prosecute the case.
UPDATE—These days, I wouldn’t want to be in Portland. Period.
