PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – A Portland group of lawyers announced Monday they have filed a lawsuit on behalf of a woman who claims she was injured during a protest in the summer of 2020.

The Portland Lawyers of Black Lives Matter filed the civil case on Monday in the name of Angeline Mead. They claim she was shot in the eye by a high-velocity projectile at close range on July 26, 2020 that caused serious injury and permanent scarring.

If "peacefully protesting" or "exercising free speech" at night then just as guilty as the "rioter" who use them! Do it during the day, and anyone at night, arrest! Or get a permit, then if anything happens, arrest them and they won't put up with the rioting during their protests anymore!

Haha she's looking for a payday.

"peacefully exercising their freedom of assembly and expression." Police don't use force for peaceful assembly's, if so there would have been a lawsuit long ago

Charlatan

Yes, actually, they do.

Charlatan,

Cite examples?

RetDOD

Give her number to David Hunt.

Now THAT's funny.

Isn't she one of those rioters who specifically taunted Black Portland Police Officers.... calling them racist names, spitting, giving the finger to, cursing at the officers. MY. Heart. Does. Not. Bleed. for this stupid woman...

Sprintdude

The injury does not look that bad. If she wants to avoid injury of that sort then stay away from riots.

Just curious

[thumbup] Right on.

We need to start suing the protesters, for the damage they do.

commentor

So she got a shiner. Big deal. Case dismissed, as all frivolous cases should be.

Merlin

She deserved everything she got.

Out breaking the law - gets hurt while breaking the law and then files a lawsuit. Here is a thought maybe she should have been home instead you know out breaking the law. Really who cares?

Charlatan

Protesting isn't against the law. Idiot.

commentor

But breaking the law is. Idiot.

Sprintdude

Protesting is not illegal. Being in a group that is destroying stuff s a riot. Even if she did not actively try to burn/break stuff, she was providing cover for the ones that were. Thus like the driver of a get away car at a bank robbery, she should have no basis for complaint. Except in Portland the land of anarchy I guess.

@ commenter

What law did she break? How do you know for a fact she broke that law?

You won't answer because you can't.

Can any of you morons think for yourselves?

Charlatan

@Sprintdude

Your analogy is garbage. The getaway driver is an active participant in the commission of a crime. This is very different from being on the same place where a crime was committed. This is more akin to a person being in a bank when it was robbed facing punishment for the robbery even though they were not an active participant. Proximity to a crime doesn't equal complicity. Can you grasp that simple concept? Clearly not.

commentor

@Chalratan

How do you know for a fact she didn't break that law? Were you there by her side?

Smashing windows, looting stores, vandalizing parks, public and private buildings and businesses is not protesting. Assaulting cops is not protesting. Committing arson, especially to occupied buildings is not protesting. Lobbing cans, bricks, rocks, bottles and molotov cocktails at officers is not protesting. She got nailed, because she was right in the thick of a bunch of rioters, which makes her..guess what? A rioter. The next peaceful protest in Portland, will be the first one..moron. I guess losery loves company..right Charlie?

Grand puba

Small price to pay for the damage you did to my town. Nothing to see here move along

Charlatan

How do you know she caused any damage? You don't.

Sprintdude

If she was not actively breaking/burning stuff, she was providing cover for those that were. She is just as guilty because she was participating in a riot.

Charlatan

@Sprintdude

No. Once again you fail at logic. See above.

devils advocate

Is that the same logic that has all police and law enforcement lumped together as 'murderers'? You state that it is irresponsible to lump all protesters in with the rioters, so why are you libs doing the same to our hero's in blue?

Charlatan

@devilsadvocate where did I say "all police are murderers?"

Oh, that's right, I didn't. You're punching above your intellectual weight class here.

devils advocate

It's in your connotation.

Am I wrong? Doubtful.

You seem to have a personal attachment to this story. Your argument technique is common with those who cannot separate their emotional attachment with logic as you end every comment with an attack on others intellect. I look forward to your clever reply on my lack of intelligence. In the meantime, tell your Antifa comrades hi.
