Vicky Taft at PF Media reports on Portland's Antifa 'Justice' Strikes Again
A Portland “anti-fascist” activist has been found not guilty of being a fascist by roughing up a journalist and stealing his phone because he didn’t like what the reporter said about his Antifa friends. After the Portland judge let off the notorious Portland Antifa attacker, he delivered a lecture to the victim, reporter Andy Ngo.
There’s your justice, Portland.
Ngo sought justice in court for three-and-a-half years against John Hacker, one of a mob of activists that has made a point to follow, chase, hassle, and attack Ngo multiple times.
The Post Millennial reported that Hacker confronted Ngo in a Portland area 24 Hour Fitness where he assaulted the reporter, poured water on him, and stole his phone. Ngo captured part of John Hacker’s attack on video.
“The shaky video is less than 30 seconds long, but prosecutors say it’s a key piece of evidence showing Hacker approaching Ngo, grabbing the device, and yelling, “I will break your f*cking phone,” the news website reported.
The Deputy District Attorney argued before the judge that Hacker had conducted a “harassment campaign targeting Ngo for years.”
Indeed, Hacker was part of a mob that chased Ngo in downtown Portland, forcing the journalist to seek a hiding place at a posh hotel.
. . .
But the judge wasn’t moved by this attack on Ngo or persuaded by Antifa’s dogged stalking of the journalist. Rather, Judge Eric Dahlin lectured both men as if Ngo were the guilty party or had asked to be attacked and have his phone stolen by Hacker. Dahlin told them, “if anyone is interested in actually making positive changes to society, I would ask that you all examine your own methods, and ask yourselves, are these methods that I’m using helpful? Is it actually making a positive impact?”
I wonder if this judge asks all assault victims if they “should examine [their] methods”?
They continue to vote poorly.
