After admitting he executed a Trump supporter in cold blood in the streets of Portland, Oregon, federal authorities closed in Thursday night on 48-year-old Michael Forest Reinoehl, a U.S. Army veteran.
“You know, lots of lawyers suggest that I shouldn’t even be saying anything, but I feel it’s important that the world at least gets a little bit of what’s really going on,” Reinoehl said. “I had no choice. I mean, I, I had a choice. I could have sat there and watched them kill a friend of mine of color. But I wasn’t going to do that.”
Reinoehl said he acted in self-defense, but now we’ll never now as he was shot and killed by federal agents hours after his interview with VICE television.
“Had I stepped forward, he would have maced or stabbed me,” Reinoehl told VICE. “ … I was confident that I did not hit anyone innocent and I made my exit.”
The video of Reinoehl’s cold-blooded execution of Trump Patriot Aaron “Jay” Danielson was captured on video and broadcast live. Reinoehl fired two shots at close range, killing Danielson. He said he was simply providing “security” for the Black Lives Matter protest in Portland, and doing his job.
Moments before police shot and killed Reinoehl, President Donald J. Trump tweeted, “Why aren’t the Portland Police ARRESTING the cold blooded killer of Aaron “Jay” Danielson. Do your job, and do it fast. Everybody knows who this thug is. No wonder Portland is going to hell!”
Looks like an execution in Portland
