Surviving victim of train attack out of hospital

Surviving victim of train attack out of hospital

First, let's talk about those who deserve to be talked about: the three uncommonly courageous heroes who came to the aid of two teenage girls who were being bullied and harassed by an alleged white supremacist, police said, for "religiously and racially motivated reasons".

Two precious lives were lost this Memorial Day weekend in Portland and one more, almost so.

Christian, 35, shouted "You call it terrorism! I call it patriotism!" and "Death to the enemies of America!" as he made his first appearance in the case Tuesday.

The man police say fatally stabbed two other men who tried to shield young women from an anti-Muslim tirade on a Portland, Oregon, light-rail train makes his initial court appearance Tuesday and the city's mayor says he hopes the slayings will inspire "changes in the political dialogue in this country". "Please, get off this train", he reportedly said. Authorities say the suspect directed an anti-Muslim rant at two women.

Mangum said one of the men told Christian to stop disrespecting the girls.

Authorities say Christian started verbally abusing two young women, including one wearing a hijab.

Surveillance video then shows Christian turn his attention to a man, Taliesin Namkai-Meche, who was seated.

Christian made Macy and other riders uncomfortable. Christian hit the phone away and stabbed Namkai Meche in the neck.

Ricky John Best, 53, of Happy Valley moved forward to intervene and was stabbed in the neck.

Best, who was an army veteran and father of four, was known as a dedicated dad.

He was treated for his injuries and released by the hospital. He attended Christian's court hearing but did not speak with reporters. "I'm a patriot and I hope everyone I stabbed died".

Several witnesses followed Christian, anxious that he could get away, and directed his whereabouts to a police officer, according to local media reports.

Numerous early settlers to OR were from Southern states and brought with them negative attitudes about blacks, Gibson said. Currently, more than 70 percent of Portland is non-Hispanic white and only about 6 percent of the city's population is black, according to the most recent U.S. Census data.




"The idea that Portland is so liberal supersedes this dark, hidden secret about racism", Gibson said.

Mr Trump was criticised for waiting three days before he commented on the attack in Portland, Oregon.

The White Aryan Resistance lost a multi-million dollar civil lawsuit in 1990 that crippled the organization, but the murder left an indelible mark on the city. "The victims were standing up to hate and intolerance", he tweeted Monday - was welcome and needed.

Friday's attack happened on the first day of Ramadan - the Muslim holy month, marked by daily fasting from dawn to sunset - and is the latest in a series of apparent hate crimes in the region.

In the suburb of Troutdale, an Iranian refugee found his home painted with racist graffiti and death threats.

Best fell to the floor and at least two men rushed over to start CPR, Rachel Macy, a witness told the Oregonian. Please condemn any acts of violence, which result directly from hate speech & hate groups.

"He told us to go back to Saudi Arabia and he told us we shouldn't be here, to get out of his country", Mangum told KPTV.

On Monday, Mayor Ted Wheeler asked the federal government to revoke a permit it issued for a Sunday rally in downtown Portland, saying he fears it could further enflame tensions.

He said: "They need to take care, not just of their own, but everyone in the world". "So as I'm praying with him, I tell him he's a lovely man", Macy said.

Villarreal asked Gibson if he could assure people that his group won't incite violence.

"It's a moment that other people aren't going to be able to understand". "I can't control everybody".

"I want the Muslim community to know that they have a home here in Portland and are loved", he said. At Portland's Free Speech Rally last April, Jeremy Christian was ejected from the event for threatening to beat protestors with a bat, as reported by the Portland Mercury Newspaper. He hurled insults at rally organizers as well as counter-protesters and was not a Trump supporter, Gibson said. "He threatened me and tons of people", Joey Gibson said.

Several counter-protests are planned.
