The DA is NOT going to prosecute these wanna be Timothy McVeigh’s, so why even try to arrest them?
Oregon State Police (OSP) ended its defense of a federal courthouse in downtown Portland, OR, on Thursday as part of a broader withdrawal of approximately 100 state police from the City of Roses.
KOIN News, a Portland-based CBS affiliate, reported, “The Oregon State Police is ending its agreement to help Portland police protect the Hatfield Federal Courthouse, the scene of many of the protests over the past 76 nights.. … The reason they’re ending their agreement is because they are angry over new Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt’s decision not to prosecute most of those arrested.”
“The Oregon State Police is continually reassessing our resources and the needs of our partner agencies and at this time we are inclined to move those resources back to counties where prosecution of criminal conduct is still a priority,” said OSP Capt. Timothy Fox, alluding to Schmidt’s refusal to prosecute most of the 500 arrested protesters. “We’re in a county that’s not going to prosecute this criminal behavior,” he added.
