In Portland, Oregon, an Antifa member was sentenced to five years in prison, after throwing burning flares into a Portland police cruiser and a Target store during a protest in May.
Damion Zachary Feller thought he was tough when he set fire to a police car and a Target during rioting, and now he’ll have five years in prison to see just how “tough” he really is!
This is exactly the kind of harsh example that needs to be set to deter other Antifa thugs, who have shown their affinity for chaos, violence, and destruction over the last year.
Alt-Left groups like Antifa, who openly espouse Communism and proudly use violent tactics to silence dissenters, are running amok in America, and it’s time for them to face justice and be held accountable for their destructive behavior.
A local TV station aired live footage of Damion Zachary Feller hurling a flare through a shattered picture window at Target, prompting employees to run with fire extinguishers to put out a burning section of carpet. TV and cellphone cameras also caught Feller throwing a flare through the shattered window of a battered police SUV parked across the street from Target, at Southwest 10th Avenue and Morrison.
Other people clad all in black or wearing masks can be seen on the videos kicking or whacking windows of the police car seconds before Feller swoops in with the flares.
Police identified Feller as among a group of about 20 anarchists who descended on downtown as peaceful May Day protesters spoke about a variety of social issues. Officers arrested 25 people that day for vandalizing property, setting fires, throwing rocks and other violence.
Feller wasn’t arrested until two days later after officers who recognized his image from the videos spotted him on the streets of downtown.
Detectives showed him a photograph of the person who threw one of the flares and he replied: “I saw that online, and I knew I was (expletive),” according to a probable cause affidavit.
