A federal judge shut down an attempt from the state of Oregon to implement a restraining order on federal police in the city of Portland on Friday, which would’ve left the Hatfield Federal Courthouse undefended as left-wing rioters attack it with arson and graffiti on a nightly basis.
KOIN 6 News reported that U.S. District Judge Michael W. Mosman found the state of Oregon “lacks standing” in its attempt to limit the activities of federal police defending the courthouse on Friday, shutting the state down in its attempt to require police to identify themselves and explain the purposes of arrest to anyone placed under arrest by them.
“It is not unusual, following major protests, for some of the people involved to allege that the police crossed a line—a constitutional line—in the course of their interactions,” stated Judge Mosman in his ruling. “It is also common for these interactions to result in lawsuits, with protesters contending the police violated their First and Fourth Amendment rights and seeking redress by money damages and injunctive relief. There is a well established body of law paving the way for such lawsuits to move forward in federal court. This is not such a lawsuit. It is a very different case, a highly unusual one with a particular set of rules.”
Another court ruling on Friday established special privileges for so-called journalists and legal observers at the courthouse riots, preventing them from being “targeted” by the police. The ruling may prevent anyone who simply says that they’re “press” from being arrested, even if they’re caught in the act of committing crimes against the courthouse.
The State of Oregon is clearly on the side of violent rioters, as opposed to the federal agents protecting the courthouse from ANTIFA political violence.
Husband of Los Angeles Prosecutor Jackie Lacey Charged with Assaulting Black Lives Matter Protestors
David Lacey pulled a gun on BLM protestors.
The husband of Democratic Los Angeles County prosecutor Jackie Lacey is being charged with three misdemeanors stemming from his armed confrontation of several Black Lives Matter protestors who arrived at his house to demand a “community meeting” with Lacey .
The charging documents were obtained by Politico and published on Tuesday. Xavier Becerra, the California Attorney General, is charging David Lacey with three misdemeanor counts of assault with a firearm against three people.
I’m front of DA Jackie Lacey’s house for that community meeting she promised with the @BLMLA crew. Rang her bell to invite her.

David Lacey showed exceptionally poor judgement during the incident, confronting the Los Angeles BLM protestors with his finger on the trigger of a firearm. The protestors don’t appear to have been engaging in illegal activity- it’s legal to solicit most residences through ringing on the doorbell if you aren’t asked to leave, although the protestors remained after David Lacey told them to “get off of my porch.”
David Lacey’s attorney, Samuel Tyre, released a statement expressing his disapproval that Becerra chose to file cirminal charges in the incident.
“My client and I are disappointed that the Attorney General’s Office felt that the conduct at issue amounted to criminal behavior. We disagree entirely with their assessment, but we have the utmost faith in the justice system, and we are confident that the correct result will be reached.
At this time we are not going to comment on the facts of the case, except to say that my client’s human instinct is forever and always to protect his wife and his family and to keep them safe from physical harm. We look forward to all relevant facts coming to light.”
Elected officials of Democratic cities and communities seem entirely inept at responding to criticism of their leadership from Black Lives Matter.
