Whom the feds hauled in
Yesterday's odd announcement by Portland's law-and-order U.S. attorney gives us a chance to see whom the federal troops have arrested at the protests here, and what the arrestees are charged with. I couldn't resist creating a spreadsheet based on the press release. I've attempted to post it here.
Here are some facts that you might find interesting:
- The average age of the defendants is 28.13 years old.
- The crimes they are charged with are:
Assaulting a federal officer
Creating a disturbance
Creating a hazard on federal property
Damaging government property
Destruction of federal property
Failing to obey a lawful order
Violating national defense airspace
- In addition, 11 citations were issued for other, presumably lesser, offenses. Seventy-four people have been accused of some federal offense. Almost everyone is from the Portland metro area. One defendant is from Eugene, and another from Texas.
- The biggest nights for federal busts were from July 21 to 29. Since then, only four people are shown as having been arrested by federal officers.
