Portland DA DROPS Charges in 70 Percent of Riot Cases

The Multnomah County District Attorney has made it quite clear that county leaders have no interest in restoring law and order to the violent, anarchist, liberal utopia of Portland.

Newly released from the MCDA reveals it dropped almost 70 percent of cases brought to the office between May 29 and October 5.

Andy Ngo reports:

Between May 29 and Oct. 5, there were 974 cases brought to the MCDA’s office by Portland Police. Many involve repeat offenders though the number isn’t published in the report. Nearly 70 percent of these cases were dropped. 543 cases were rejected in the “interest of justice,” 44 cases due to “insufficient evidence,” 12 cases due to “a legal impediment,” and 67 cases are “pending investigative follow-up from law enforcement.”

Oregon Live reports that so far, of the 39 cases involving allegations of a rioter assaulting a law enforcement officer, only seven of them are being charged by prosecutors. Prosecutors also filed charges against just 20 protesters of the 159 cases submitted by police.

In a press release on the MCDA’s newly compiled data, District Attorney Mike Schmidt said, “This is a major step forward for the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office. Transparency in the work we do is a keystone to my administration. Moving this data online for the community to easily use will have a significant impact on understanding cases that arise from mass demonstrations. I promised during my campaign that I take a smarter approach to justice. That work continues with the launch of this dashboard. I am committed to launching future dashboards and other public facing programs that will support data-driven and transparent decision making.”

  1. Unacceptable

  2. Just look at those police officers! They’re totally awesome in their uniforms! No wonder my grandson wants to be a cop. In today’s atmosphere the members of our police forces are probably the bravest people in the world… other than President Trump. I #BackTheBlue 100%! Just wish the scummy politicians who run so many cities had their backs, too. We need to let them know We The People are with them, WE have their backs!

  3. That is absolutely horrendous! Were I Trump, I would cut off all federal taxpayer dollars immediately, then order Barr to step in!

  4. and we wonder why there is so much internal hatred of our nation and its heritage…. these monsters hate EVERYTHING this great nation stands for, including the rule of law.

    its going to have to get straightened out, either by the fed, or patriots.

  5. How can these awful people get voted out of office? Do the voters in their communities really want that kind of leadership? Aren’t they supposed to keep their citizens safe and protect them and their homes and businesses?
