FACTS

    The man responsible for the death of Aaron J. Danielson in Portland last week was killed by a federal fugitive task force on Thursday night after he attempted to flee during arrest. Michael Forest Reinoehl, a vocal antifa member, shot and killed Danielson, a member of right-wing Patriot Prayer group, during a clash between protesters and counter-protesters on August 29th. On the same day that police obtained a warrant for his arrest, Reinoehl admitted responsibility for Danielson’s death in an interview with VICE News. He claimed it was in self-defense and that he foresaw a “civil war” coming. The events have stoked fear “that the Black Lives Matter and pro-Trump protests across the country could escalate into more deadly skirmishes.”

    LEFT

    The Left believes he acted in self-defense. Reinoehl’s death sparked outrage among BLM protestors who gathered outside of a Portland police facility Thursday night. “There’s blood on your hands. You murdered Michael Reinoehl,” read one sign. Reinoehl was said to be a “fixture of antipolice demonstrations” and was a “part of the protesters’ security team” in Portland. Regarding recent violence, one protestor noted:

    “We came dressed in t-shirts. They started gassing us. So we came back with respirators. They started shooting us. So we came back with vests. They started aiming for the head. So we started wearing helmets. And now they called us terrorists. Who’s escalating this? It’s not us.”

    Oregon Governor Kate Brown said that “all who perpetrate violent crimes must be held equally accountable” and demanded the violence stop.

    RIGHT

    The Right defends the task forces’ actions.

    “Initial reports indicate the suspect produced a firearm, threatening the lives of law enforcement officers. Task force members responded to the threat and struck the suspect who was pronounced dead at the scene.”

    President of London Center for Policy Research and former Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer stated, “This is no tragedy – this was a terrorist who met a violent end by his own choice.” Attorney General William Barr seconded this notion, saying in a statement that the task forces’ actions were “an unmistakable demonstration that the United States will be governed by law, not violent mobs.”
