  • Portland suspect shouts 'free speech or die' in court

TriMet also invites the public to participate in the minute of silence. Three men tried to intervene, then were stabbed by Christian, who then fled the scene at the Hollywood TS Transit station in the largest city of Oregon. You got no safe place.

The suspect was identified as Jeremy Joseph Christian, 35, who police and civil rights advocacy groups described as having a history of racist, Islamophobic and other extremist remarks.

Defense attorney Gregory Scholls did not return a call for comment after the hearing.

Court documents show that Christian said, "I hope they all die". One of the women was wearing a Muslim head covering and both were black.

About a dozen protesters in the hall outside the courtroom erupted into shouting while the charges were read.

Fletcher said he's unsure how to move on after the attack, so he's focusing on trying to get better.

Fletcher said he had just left class at Portland State University and was on his way to work when he witnessed the incident on the train. "You hear me? Die". That's what I'm doing. "I can die in prison a happy man", the police affidavit said. Fletcher says he's heartbroken for their families.

A heart-shaped wreath covered with positive messages hung on a traffic light pole at a memorial for the two men.

Unease about white supremacist activity in Portland deepened after the fatal stabbings of two men who tried to shield young women from an anti-Muslim tirade, and some people worry that the famously tolerant community could see a resurgence of the hostilities that once earned it the nickname "Skinhead City".

He made repeated outbursts in court.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is investigating the attack to determine whether to charge Christian with terrorism or a federal hate crime, Portland FBI spokeswoman Beth Anne Steele said.

But there was little public evidence of prodding by Trump or his aides of either side to make more substantial concessions. TAMARA KEITH, BYLINE: President Trump motorcaded to Bethlehem to meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas .

- Christian said he was transient and "does not know the last time he had a permanent address". "This is America, get out if you don't like free speech!" Leave this country if you hate our freedoms.

Christian says he went to school through 9th grade, but passed the high school equivalency exam commonly known as the G.E.D. and took some community college classes.

Christian's other views include misogyny and transphobia.

Christian stabbed three men.

Sixteen-year-old Destinee Magnum, one of the women that Christian ranted against on the train, later thanked the families of the men who protected her.

On Saturday, Anthony Robert Hammond, a 34-year-old white man, was arrested after violently stabbing an African American man with a machete in Clearlake, California. Fletcher told Christian to get off the train, according to the affidavit. Two of the victims died. One is black and the other was wearing a hijab.

Mr. Meche's mother, Asha Deliverance of Ashland, Oregon, confirmed on Facebook that her son had been killed. He was only recently released from the hospital.

The lone man to survive Friday's stabbings says he's having a hard time processing what happened. The third is still in the hospital and expected to survive.

Last Friday, Christian allegedly stabbed two men to death and injured another man badly aboard a Portland metro train. What charges is the state planning to file against the suspect, Jeremy Christian, today?

Friday's attack happened on the first day of Ramadan - the Muslim holy month, marked by daily fasting from dawn to sunset - and is the latest in a series of apparent hate crimes in the region.

It was a peek into the mindset of hate that has become an all too frequent item feeding the news cycle during the presidency of Donald Trump.
