I feel like you’d have better luck making it safely through a day in Baghdad than you would in Portland. Seriously.
Continuing the onslaught of violence in communist hell-hole Portland, a 58-year-old man walked into a laundromat with a sharp saw, and marched over a woman and started trying to “saw” her.
Another woman came over to try and help, and the man turned his anger on her and began trying to assault her as well.
When the man finally gave up and left, he was confronted by police, who, while trying to arrest him, were met with protesters who actually taunted and heckled police for trying to arrest a “black man.”
On the afternoon of July 17, several people called 911 to report a man armed with a large handsaw and carrying a bag assaulting people and breaking out vehicle windshields, according to the Portland Police Bureau.
At one point, the suspect, Shane Vordelmicha Green, 58, marched into a laundromat and straight to a woman doing her wash, swinging the saw at her head. Another woman rushes to help, but the suspect allegedly swings again and both women fall to the ground.
The suspect then exits the laundromat and approaches two bystanders who back off quickly.
The entire scene was captured by surveillance cameras inside and outside the laundromat.
At that, the suspect walked into traffic and began moving toward officers while yelling at them and still holding the saw, according to officers.
After several additional warnings, officers used a non-lethal round on the suspect, forcing him to drop the saw. KOIN reports that police began talking to the suspect to try and calm him, but a number of bystanders began to scream at and taunt them, which agitated the suspect further, the PPB said.
Editor and reporter Any Ngo reported that protesters in the area attempted to stop the arrest.

Portland police continued talking to the suspect and he was eventually taken into custody.
He has been charged with several felony counts of second-degree assault, unlawful use of a weapon, first-degree attempted assault, strangulation, menacing, disorderly conduct and interfering with a police officer.
The protesters who tried to stop his arrest should have all been charged as well.
