Witness: Man Cut the Throats of Two Passengers Who Tried to Stop Anti-Muslim Bullying of Women on Northeast Portland Train

The attack occurred in the Hollywood District. "He said, 'Get off the bus, and get out of the country because you don't pay taxes here.'"


A man riding the MAX in Northeast Portland fatally stabbed two passengers who tried to stop him from hurling racial and anti-Muslim insults at women on the train, witnesses tell WW's news partner KATU-TV.

The suspect is currently in Portland police custody. The stabbing occurred at about 4:30 this afternoon as the light-rail train pulled into the Hollywood Transit Center.

Details of the triple stabbing, which killed two men, are still emerging. But eyewitness reports to KATU and The Oregonian indicate it was an anti-immigrant hate crime.

I'm just speechless. All these folks who perpetrate hate crimes need to be locked up. only way it will stop.

6. it ends where violent asshole bigots intimidate the rest of us to stand down

after a few dozen, maybe a hundred, such killings, people could very well become much less inclined to protect minority victims from harassment
compound that with a few federal court decisions unraveling hate crime laws and protecting hate speech, then unleash AG Sessions new & improved DOJ to purge the population with impunity
and maybe a revisiting of Kristallnacht
that is where it ends -- or at least, where reliable internal record-keeping will cease

3. Double-standard time...!

Muslim stabs two people to death on train: "TERRORISM! TERRORISM!! TERRORISM!!!"

White anti-Muslim stabs two people to death on train: "He must have been mentally-ill. Or under the influence of drugs or alcohol."
