To clarify reports from yesterday, according to CNN (video), a white supremacist man known to police stabbed and killed 2 men, including a veteran and father of 2 on a Portland, Oregon train commuter and left one seriously injured. Police have apprehended the suspect, who remains under police arrest at the time of this report.
As previously stated, the suspect is known to police and has been involved in prior, non-lethal incidents in the past. The deceased have been identified and their names released to the public.
Portland law enforcement identified the victims as 53-year-old Ricky John Best, a vet, and 23-year-old Taliesin Myrddin Namkai Meche.
A third victim, 21-year-old Micah David-Cole Fletcher, according to police, is being treated for injuries and seems as if he’ll make it, but requires expensive life-saving procedures. More on that and to assist in this endeavour, you can go here.
This is a stark reminder of the racism and hatred that still exists in America, despite some arguments that we live in a “post-racial era.” For some, that is clearly not the case.
