So ugly his eyebrows didn't wanna have anything to do with him!


Thanks to governor Kate brown and mayor Ted "worthless" wheeler and let's not forget the "predator" Joanne hardesty for wanting to defend the police these low life's are running rampid with no law and order all over. Daily shootings, daily stabbings, assualts, and theft whens enough to enough. The city of portland and surrounding cities are a complete dump and wasteland. Once a thriving city no longer, more like gothem city in the making


I would hope that people of Portland would start voting in their own best interest. White guilt and liberalism are horrible for society.


If only he had a free apartment and free healthcare none of this would've happened!


He hangs out at homeless camps? That really narrows it down in the Portland area.

Worst PDX Mayor Ever

Actually, I contacted one of the detectives (Jeff McGuire) and told him about a couple of homeless camps not far from there. I just emailed Jeff to see if that's where they got him, because the report does say "a tip from a community member." I'm just glad they got him off the streets. Great work Detectives!


Comforting to know the liberals gun control works in prohibiting this guy from getting a firearm.


That guy has some narrow set eyes.
