SALEM, Ore. - During a Black Lives Matter protest on Sept. 21, a Portland
police officer was sitting in a vehicle used to broadcast warnings and loud
noise at protesters when he saw a burning object sailing through the air toward
him.

The officer jumped out of the car and found a beer growler made into a Molotov
cocktail, a burned rag stuffed into its mouth. The firebomb had not gone off.

According to court records, that bottle produced key evidence that helped lead
to charges against an Indiana man who authorities said had come to Portland for
protests.

A previously secret 28-count indictment, announced Monday, charges Malik
Muhammad with attempted aggravated murder, attempted assault in the first
degree, attempted murder in the first degree, unlawful manufacture of a
destructive device and other crimes.

It is one of the most serious court cases to stem from the prolonged protests
that rocked Portland last year.

Muhammad, 24, was arrested on Friday and is in an Indiana jail. Joshua Pond,
listed on court documents as Muhammad's attorney, said he had no comment on
behalf of his client.

Officers examined the unexploded firebomb. A price tag allowed them to trace
the beer growler to the store where it had been purchased. Store video showed
Muhammad and his girlfriend, buying growlers and bats, Multnomah County Deputy
District Attorney Keven Demer said in an affidavit.

DNA samples from the unexploded firebomb had "an extremely strong comparison"
to Muhammed, Demer said.

On Sept. 23, during a protest at the Justice Center building in downtown
Portland, another Molotov cocktail was thrown. This one exploded when it hit
the ground, creating a large fireball and spraying flames onto the leg of an
officer, Demer said. Multiple videos show Muhammed throwing the device, he
added.

"Anyone who thinks they can get away with trying to murder police officers and
destroy this city should think again," Police Chief Chuck Lovell said in a
statement announcing Muhammed's arrest. "More investigations are underway."

FBI agents apparently blended in with protesters in an attempt to pinpoint
those who were violent.

During a protest on Oct. 11, FBI agents in plainclothes saw Muhammed, dressed
all in black but wearing distinctive red-and-gray gloves, use a metal baton to
break windows of the Oregon Historical Society, Portland State University and
several businesses, Demer's sworn statement says.

The information was relayed to police officers. They chased the suspect, who
allegedly ditched a loaded pistol, and was found with a loaded magazine in his
pocket that fit the gun, authorities said. Unlawful possession of a firearm is
another of the charges Muhammed faces.

Demer noted that Muhammed could face a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years
if convicted and is a flight risk. He asked the court to set bail at $3
million.

Judge Leslie Bottomly denied the request and instead ordered that Muhammed be
held.

Wait... aren't they being a little hard on Malik? That was obviously a
mostly peaceful attempted murder.

I hope the little Antifa shitbag enjoys his decade in a hard core

Wouldn't bother a hard core Muslim too much, read accounts of servicemen in Afghanistan and how the head muzzies abuse 10 year old boys. Of course, 250lb cons aren't little boys.

I'm sure Malik will take great comfort in being held up as a martyr to
the Antifa cause as he rots in prison. Not that his comrades are likely
to want to visit him in the Graybar Hotel or give a rat's ass about him
once he finishes his sentence. After all, he's just a tool for the
Revolution to use and discard.

SALEM, Ore. - During a Black Lives Matter protest on Sept. 21, a Portland
police officer was sitting in a vehicle used to broadcast warnings and loud
noise at protesters when he saw a burning object sailing through the air toward
him.
The officer jumped out of the car and found a beer growler made into a Molotov
cocktail, a burned rag stuffed into its mouth. The firebomb had not gone off.
According to court records, that bottle produced key evidence that helped lead
to charges against an Indiana man who authorities said had come to Portland for
protests.
A previously secret 28-count indictment, announced Monday, charges Malik
Muhammad with attempted aggravated murder, attempted assault in the first
degree, attempted murder in the first degree, unlawful manufacture of a
destructive device and other crimes.
It is one of the most serious court cases to stem from the prolonged protests
that rocked Portland last year.
Muhammad, 24, was arrested on Friday and is in an Indiana jail. Joshua Pond,
listed on court documents as Muhammad's attorney, said he had no comment on
behalf of his client.
Officers examined the unexploded firebomb. A price tag allowed them to trace
the beer growler to the store where it had been purchased. Store video showed
Muhammad and his girlfriend, buying growlers and bats, Multnomah County Deputy
District Attorney Keven Demer said in an affidavit.

On Sept. 23, during a protest at the Justice Center building in downtown
Portland, another Molotov cocktail was thrown. This one exploded when it hit
the ground, creating a large fireball and spraying flames onto the leg of an
officer, Demer said. Multiple videos show Muhammed throwing the device, he
added.
"Anyone who thinks they can get away with trying to murder police officers and
destroy this city should think again," Police Chief Chuck Lovell said in a
statement announcing Muhammed's arrest. "More investigations are underway."

Demer noted that Muhammed could face a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years
if convicted and is a flight risk. He asked the court to set bail at $3
million.
Judge Leslie Bottomly denied the request and instead ordered that Muhammed be
held.
I'm a little confused. Is he being prosecuted under both state and
federal law? Is Judge Leslie Bottomly a state judge? A federal
magistrate, not a judge, usually hold the bail hearing, so I'm guessing
state. Why do they seal indictments for something like this?

During a protest on Oct. 11, FBI agents in plainclothes saw Muhammed, dressed
all in black but wearing distinctive red-and-gray gloves, use a metal baton to
break windows of the Oregon Historical Society, Portland State University and
several businesses, Demer's sworn statement says.
The information was relayed to police officers. They chased the suspect, who
allegedly ditched a loaded pistol, and was found with a loaded magazine in his
pocket that fit the gun, authorities said. Unlawful possession of a firearm is
another of the charges Muhammed faces.
Demer noted that Muhammed could face a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years
if convicted and is a flight risk. He asked the court to set bail at $3
million.
Judge Leslie Bottomly denied the request and instead ordered that Muhammed be
held.
I'm a little confused. Is he being prosecuted under both state and
federal law? Is Judge Leslie Bottomly a state judge? A federal
magistrate, not a judge, usually hold the bail hearing, so I'm guessing
state. Why do they seal indictments for something like this?

SALEM, Ore. - During a Black Lives Matter protest on Sept. 21, a Portland
police officer was sitting in a vehicle used to broadcast warnings and loud
noise at protesters when he saw a burning object sailing through the
air toward

protests.
A previously secret 28-count indictment, announced Monday, charges Malik
Muhammad with attempted aggravated murder, attempted assault in the first
degree, attempted murder in the first degree, unlawful manufacture of a
destructive device and other crimes.
It is one of the most serious court cases to stem from the prolonged protests
that rocked Portland last year.
Muhammad, 24, was arrested on Friday and is in an Indiana jail. Joshua Pond,
listed on court documents as Muhammad's attorney, said he had no comment on
behalf of his client.
Officers examined the unexploded firebomb. A price tag allowed them to trace
the beer growler to the store where it had been purchased. Store video showed

District Attorney Keven Demer said in an affidavit.
DNA samples from the unexploded firebomb had "an extremely strong comparison"
to Muhammed, Demer said.
On Sept. 23, during a protest at the Justice Center building in downtown
Portland, another Molotov cocktail was thrown. This one exploded when it hit
the ground, creating a large fireball and spraying flames onto the leg of an
officer, Demer said. Multiple videos show Muhammed throwing the device, he
added.
"Anyone who thinks they can get away with trying to murder police
officers and

destroy this city should think again," Police Chief Chuck Lovell said in a
statement announcing Muhammed's arrest. "More investigations are underway."
FBI agents apparently blended in with protesters in an attempt to pinpoint
those who were violent.

Will you stop doing straight lines please? I am resisting the urge to do
the punch line.
