The Portland Anarchist Who Shot Trump Supporter “Jay” Was Interviewed By VICE TV and Later Killed By Federal Authorities After Warrant Was Issued For His Arrest

On the same night that VICE TV released a video of radicalized anarchist Michael Forest Reinoehl admitting to killing Trump supporter Aaron “Jay” Danielson, Federal authorities happened to locate him after a warrant was issued for his arrest, in which the encounter left Michael Reinoehl dead.

During the encounter, Michael Reinoehl – a staunch Antifa supporter – pulled a gun out and an officer(s) opened fire, killing him on the spot. There’s no confirmation yet from federal officials on whether or not Reinoehl fired his gun first, or at all, but according to the, witnesses say that they saw an unmarked SUV “parked on School Street for a while when that SUV and another converged on a man in a vehicle in the apartment complex. They moved onto a grassy area about 50 yards away to watch what was happening. The man got out of his vehicle and began to fire what they believe was an assault rifle at the SUVs. They said they heard 40 or 50 shots, then officers returned fire, hitting the man.

Here’s the Vice segment with the Portland Shooter Michael Forest Reinoehl:

Shooter: “I had no choice. I mean, I had a choice, I could have stood there and watched them kill a friend of mine of color. But I wasn’t gonna do that. That was the straw that broke the camels back.”

“My name’s Michael Forest Reinoehl. Born and raised, Portland, Or. 48 years old. Lots of lawyers suggested I shouldn’t even be saying anything. But I feel that the world gets a feel for whats really going on because I feel there been a lot of propaganda put out there. What I will say, is I felt that my life, and other people around me lives were in danger. And I felt like I had no choice but to do what I did.”

“I wasn’t even aware of what was going on. I was actually out with my son. We were driving thru town and we happened to see hundreds of trucks with flags on them and I notified my friends what I had seen and finished what I was doing with my son, received a phone call saying, ‘might be a good idea to come down there, security might be needed'” um, not knowing what that would entail. I had no idea what I was going into.”

“I used to really love this country and I respected the flag, and everything that it represented. But because of all this every time I see a big truck, specially with a flag on it I immediately think, they are out to get me.”

“There were 600 vehicles, god knows how many were rolling downtown, but like I said, I saw more of their vehicles then real citizens vehicles. It felt like the beginning of a war.”

“It was a free for all and the police were letting it happen.”

Reporter: “Right after it happened, did you panic, did you run?”

Shooter: “Well honestly, those are details I probably don’t want to get into, other than simply saying, I realized what had happened. I was confident I did not hit anyone innocent. and I made my exit.”

Reporter “And just to reiterate, you feel it was totally justified?”

Shooter: “Totally justified, had I not acted, I am confident my friend and I would have been killed. Because I was not going to stand there and let something happen. What they’ve done is they’re trying to make it look like were all terrorists, and they’re trying to make me look like a murderer. notice that they keep saying that it’s not clear that its related to the protests. That’s a lie. They know that its related to the protests. not to mention the fact that they say that they don’t know who it was. That’s a lie. Within an hour Facebook and twitter and all that had my face and name labeled as the shooter. They want to paint a picture of Antifa having major involvement. A lot of people don’t understand what Antifa represents. And if you look at the basic definition of it its just Anti-Fascist. And I am 100% Anti-fascist. I am not a member of Antifa. I am not a member of anything. Honestly, I hate to say it, but I see a civil war right around the corner. That shot, felt like, the beginning of a war.
