Three Federal Officers May Be Permanently Injured After ANTIFA Laser Attacks in Portland
At least three federal law enforcement officers may have sustained permanent eye injuries from the use of lasers by ANTIFA rioters during the city’s unrest.
Richard “Kriss” Cline, a DHS official, confirmed that the officers, who were defending the Hatfield Federal Courthouse from the mob of violent rioters that has attacked it for weeks on end, had suffered serious injuries from the use of laser pointers directed at law enforcement during the riots. Cline was speaking at a DHS press conference in which Secretary Chad Wolf defended the ongoing presence of federal police at the Hatfield Courthouse to defend the facility from dangerous criminals.
The officers had reportedly suffered the injuries when extinguishing fires created on the federal property by the left-wing criminal rioters.
“When officers responded to put out these fires, glass bottles were thrown and lasers – which can cause permanent blindness – were shined in their eyes,” said Director Cline. “We have three officers who currently have eye injuries and they may not recover sight in those eyes from those laser attacks.”
ANTIFA have also deployed commercial fireworks devices against the federal police, weapons that could potentially cause serious injury or death.

ANTIFA has also been observed shining the laser devices into the windows of private residences, ordering the inhabitants inside to “wake your ass up” in the middle of the night.
These people are serious violent criminals, not peaceful protestors.
