Last week a small but extremely important case by a Multnomah Judge appears to open the door and give the green light for future violent protesters to harass journalists and get away with it. The case surrounds independent journalist Andy Ngo who was harassed in own gym, by a known Portland rioter, who identified him. When Andy Ngo tried to protect himself by filming the event he had his phone stolen. Yet the judge let the attacker go free. Watch the video highlights below:
“I will f—ing break your phone!”
Here are highlights from the Oregon v John Hacker trial, where a violent #Antifa member was accused of robbery when he hit me & stole my phone. The judge said even though I was victimized, Hacker wasn’t guilty of robbery. pic.twitter.com/VklDlcMHmW

Oregon has a problem of Leftist rioters attacking journalist in Portland.
Below is an example of KATU reporter being attacked by rioters and the “Kill Press” messages they have left.
Anyway, here’s what my camera caught today. When I saw Ric getting surrounded, I took out my phone to record. Within seconds it gets knocked from my hand. pic.twitter.com/W37dlwkQv2

Andy Ngo has twice been hospitalized over attacks by Portland rioters.
Another independent journalist was attacked just this summer:
I got assaulted. I’m banged up but will be ok. They destroyed most of the windows not boarded up at The image center. pic.twitter.com/M6VeQXxuPs

This is a photo of when they harassed journalist Andy Ngo outside his parents home.
This case is very important.
