Portland Now at Antifa’s Mercy as Entire Riot Control Squad Resigns in Disgust

By

Oregon Public Broadcasting reported that Portland Police Bureau Officer Corey Budworth was indicted this week on a charge of fourth-degree assault relating to an Aug. 18 incident in which he struck an alleged rioter with a baton.

Leftist Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt, the man who spent last year freeing rioters, charged Budworth on Tuesday.

“In this case, we allege that no legal justification existed for Officer Budworth’s deployment of force, and that the deployment of force was legally excessive under the circumstances,” Schmidt said in a statement.

“My office will continue to do everything we can to ensure justice is done without error or delay and that we make sure our work and practices are rooted in fairness and equity,” he said.

Schmidt, despite having no shortage of actual criminals to go after, pursued Budworth, who was working as a member of the police bureau’s all-volunteer Rapid Response Team during last summer’s incident.
