U.S. Marshals Kill Anti-Fascist Activist Suspected in Fatal Portland Shooting – Democracy Now!

4September 2020

U.S. Marshals have actually shot dead an anti-fascist activist who was thought of killing a member of a far-right group during a current protest in Portland, Oregon. Forty-eight-year-old Michael Reinoehl was shot dead in Lacey, Washington, near Olympia, simply hours after an arrest warrant was issued for him. Lieutenant Ray Brady of the Thurston County Constable’s Office said four officers fired shots throughout the raid.

Lt. Ray Brady: “There was a fight between the officers that were on scene and the topic. The information that we have at this time is that the subject was armed. There was shots that were fired into the automobile, and the subject run away from the vehicle, at which time there was extra shots that were fired.”

On Thursday, Vice News aired an unique interview with Michael Reinoehl, who appeared to admit to shooting Aaron Danielson, a member of the far-right Patriot Prayer group.

Michael Reinoehl: “I felt that my life and other individuals around me’s lives remained in risk, and I seemed like I had no option however to do what I did. … They wish to paint a photo of antifa having significant involvement. A great deal of individuals don’t understand what antifa represents. And if you simply look at the standard meaning of it, it’s just anti-fascist. And I am 100% anti-fascist. I’m not a member of antifa. I’m not a member of anything. Truthfully, I hate to say it, however I see a civil war right around the corner. That shot seemed like the start of a war.”
