Portland stabbings: Suspect bragged about attack in patrol auto, police say

He is charged with murder in the fatal stabbing of two men who intervened when he shouted religious slurs at two women who were the subject of the religious slurs on Friday. A witness later said Christian called Muslims "criminals" and yelled "get off the bus and out of this country because you don't pay taxes here".

"That's what liberalism gets you", he was recorded saying.

Chapman was arrested at a March 4 protest in Berkeley, the birthplace of the US free speech movement in the 1960s that has become a flashpoint for the extreme left and right since Trump's election.

"Free speech or die, Portland!".

You have said that you will be President for all Americans.

Christian was arraigned Tuesday on several charges, including two counts of aggravated murder, attempted murder, two counts of second-degree intimidation and being a felon in possession of a restricted weapon, police say.

Court documents allege Christian was drinking alcohol when he verbally accosted to girls on the train.

One of the girls was wearing a headscarf and is believed to be Muslim.

Christian pulled a folded knife from his pocket and concealed it in his hand. Namkai Meche, who graduated from Reed College a year ago, died later at a hospital and college student Fletcher, was hospitalized with serious injuries but was expected to recover.

His next court appearance will be June 7. You will always be our hero.I'm soooooo sorry this happened.

Meche and Ricky John Best, 53, were killed as they tried to stop the harassment.

In the probable cause affidavit, prosecutors said video feeds in the back of a patrol vehicle captured Christian saying after his arrest that he had stabbed three people in the neck. Micah Fletcher told KGW-TV (https://goo.gl/HJjwpI) that he's focusing on trying to get better. He said the family wouldn't comment beyond the letter. Stitches and bruising were visible on his neck; Christian had slashed at all three men's throats, according to people at the scene. A third man who also intervened and was wounded has left hospital. "I want to honor the families who lost their courageous fathers, sons, and brothers and I want the media and the country to honor those families". So, I ask you Mr. President to take action at this time.

Namkai-Meche, 23, was one of three men who stood up and put himself in harm's way. "We're here", Macy said. Portland's mayor called the stabbing an act of bigotry and terrorism.

Fletcher who was clutching his neck exited the train as passengers on the platform tried to help him, according to the affidavit.

Christian also called Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh a "TRUE PATRIOT". Michaels said the girls told her they had felt threatened.

"I just want to say thank you to them and their family, and that I appreciate them".

Fletcher, who is still in the hospital recovering, penned a poem in the aftermath of the attack.
