Against the advice of all lawyers, the man who allegedly murdered a Trump supporter in cold blood has gone to Vice News, of all people, to tell his side of the story…or so he claims.
Ever since a member of the right-wing “Patriot Prayer” group was shot and killed during a violent rally in downtown Portland August 29, the police investigation has reportedly focused on 48-year-old Michael Forest Reinoehl, a former military contractor and father of two who has provided what he called “security” at Black Lives Matter protests.
Reinoehl has not been arrested or charged, and Portland police declined to say if he is the target of its investigation into the killing of Aaron “Jay” Danielson, who was taking part in a pro-Trump rally with an estimated 600 trucks winding through the city that night. But in a conversation with freelance journalist Donovan Farley provided to VICE News and airing in full Thursday night, Reinoehl said he believed he and a friend were about to be stabbed, and that he acted in self defense.
“You know, lots of lawyers suggest that I shouldn’t even be saying anything, but I feel it’s important that the world at least gets a little bit of what’s really going on,” Reinoehl said.” “I had no choice. I mean, I, I had a choice. I could have sat there and watched them kill a friend of mine of color. But I wasn’t going to do that.”
It is absolutely sickening that Reinhoehl has not been arrested or charged. We are not trained psychologists, but this man just seems like he is totally lying.
In the case of Kenosha, the evidence suggests Kyle Rittenhouse shot and killed two Antifa Black Lives Matter rioters in self-defense.
There is not a shred of evidence that has turned up so far indicating Reinoehl killed in self-defense. And yet, Reinoehl is still walking the streets and giving interviews to Antifa-affiliated media outlets, while Rittenhouse sits in a county jail in Illinois. There are two standards of justice in this country, and this situation is intolerable.
