WASHINGTON MAN ACCUSED OF MURDERING TWO PEOPLE CLAIMS HIS ACTIONS WERE “PATRIOTISM”

Jeremy Joseph Christian, the Washington man accused of murdering two people and severely injuring another during an anti-Muslim rant on a Portland train, was recalcitrant in his initial court hearing.

When appearing in court, Mr. Christian exclaimed, “you call it terrorism, I call it patriotism!”

He continued: “You’ve got no safe place! death to the enemies of America! “Leave this country if you hate our freedom – death to antifa.”

Mr. Christian faces charges of aggravated murder. He is being represented by public defenders.

The accused failed to enter a plea at his first court hearing.

Court documents claim that Mr. Christian confessed while in the back of a police car. Such evidence is usually admissible since it is a declaration against interest, a hearsay exception.
