COLE: THE WAY HE READS THIS IS, EVEN STANDING ON THE SIDEWALK CAN GET YOU IN TROUBLE. HE TELLS ME ISN’T TO BLAME FOR THAT VIOLENCE, THAT HE DIDN’T PLAY A ROLE. NOW, AT LEAST ONE GROUP IS APPLAUDING THE DECISION TO CHARGE HIM. [PEOPLE YELLING] COLE: FOR THE BETTER PART OF THREE YEARS NOW, WE’VE SEEN THOSE CLASHES IN THE STREETS OF PORTLAND, ANTI-FASCISTS AND EXTREME RIGHT-WING GROUPS LIKE PATRIOT PRAYER SQUARING OFF IN THE CITY. ON MAY 1 OF THIS YEAR, THIS WAS THE SCENE OUTSIDE OF CIDER RIOT, IT’S WHERE PATRIOT PRAYER SHOWED UP UNANNOUNCED, AND VIOLENCE SOON FOLLOWED.
