[Ed. – Go figure: Mike Schmidt, the prosecutor, was backed in his recent campaign by the Real Justice PAC founded by BLMer Shaun King – and now Schmidt won’t be bringing charges against BLM and Antifa riot agitators. As Bill Paxton says in Twister: It’s already here.]
Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt announced on Tuesday that his office will not prosecute many protesters who have been arrested during recent Portland demonstrations.
Schmidt said his office will presumptively decline to prosecute those whose most serious accusation doesn’t involve deliberate property damage, theft or the use or threat of force against someone else.
Charges that fall under that category include interfering with a peace officer, second-degree disorderly conduct and rioting, among others.
Those whose most serious accusation involves a city ordinance violation will also not be prosecuted.
