Surviving victim of train attack out of hospital

Surviving victim of train attack out of hospital

The deputy district attorney's affidavit revealed the most detailed account so far of what happened inside the light rail train on Friday. "One of the two men said very loudly, 'we just want you off the train, '" Macy said.

"He told us to go back to Saudi Arabia, and he told us we shouldn't be here, to get out of his country", Mangum said. "It was just blood everywhere and we just started running for our lives".

"Mr. Christian was yelling racial and religious epithets and threatened to decapitate people thereby causing serious physical harm", the document said. Best and Namkai-Meche were killed; Fletcher is now recovering from a large stab wound in his neck.

Many hailed the two victims - Rick Best and Taliesin Namkai Meche - as heroes and promoted crowdfunding pages to support their grieving families. "We need American here", "I don't care if you are ISIS", and "Free speech or die". He also posted a Facebook video at the time which showed himself performing a Nazi salute.

SIEGEL: And what can you tell us about the victims in this crime?

Ms. Hudson shared a link to a crowdfunding campaign for mental health services for the two teens, who are, according to the fundraiser's page, "suffering vast trauma in the aftermath" of the episode. "Our prayers are w/ them", he said on Twitter. "In order to help them heal from this traumatic event, we are raising funds to help girls to move on and feel safe in the future". Fletcher was released from an area hospital late on Monday.

Before Namkai-Meche was carried away on a stretcher, an eyewitness told the Oregonian, he had a last message: "Tell everyone on this train I love them".

As darkness fell and the mourners dispersed, they left dozens of candles flickering in honor of a promising young man - one of their own - who had stood up for the values they hold dear - and had paid with his life.

When a group of men came to the girls' defense, Christian allegedly attacked with a knife.

Two Native American men in Washington were also reportedly targeted on Saturday. He said one of the men on the train kept resisting him, despite his threats.

"Detectives have received many tips about the suspect's prior behavior and interactions with members of the community and will continue to investigate this information", said Portland police spokesman Sgt. Pete Simpson. "As much as I can, in whatever way I can", Fletcher told the station.

A USA civil rights group report documented almost 900 such incidents in the 10 days following Trump's being elected president last November. "I'm a kid from Portland".

Christian is being held without bail.

Christian is due back in court on June 7, 2017. She and another man stayed by the recent college graduate's side, she told the Oregonian. "You hear me? Die". Both have advocated breaking up the United States into separate regions for different races in a freaky white nationalist version of the late Honorable Elijah Muhammad's dream of a black nation for his Nation of Islam.

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler condemned the attack Monday and said it was an act of bigotry and terrorism. Best was an Army veteran and a city employee. Christian began arguing with several men.

"He was saying that Muslims should die", Ms. Hudson said.

In August, black teenager Larnell Bruce was mown down by an SUV driven by white supremacist prison gang leader, Russell Courtier, in Gresham, just outside Portland.

Jeremy Joseph Christian, 35, faces two counts of felony aggravated murder and other charges.
