Video Shows Antifa Supporters Celebrating Portland Shooting Victim’s Death
In the video, a woman with a megaphone can be heard giving a speech to a crowd. “Everybody needs to realize what’s going on in this city. Our community can hold its own without the police. We can take out the trash on our own,” she says. “I am not sad that f—ing fascist died tonight.”

Presidential Nominee Joe Biden Condemns Portland Violence
“The victim of last night’s deadly shooting in downtown Portland is Aaron Danielson, who went by Jay. His family has been informed of his death. Portland Police have not released details about their investigation and the shooter is at-large,” he wrote.
Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden released a statement condemning this action. “We must not become a country that accepts the killing of fellow Americans who do not agree with you,” it reads. many cities across the U.S. have seen protests for a few months now.
Protests Have Raged Across The U.S. Since May
They specifically started after George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, died at the hands of Minneapolis Police during his arrest. They were attempting to arrest him following reports of Floyd using a counterfeit $20 bill. However, during the arrest, officer Derek Chauvin knelt on Floyd’s neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds.
This is likely what led to his death. We have seen other instances of alleged police brutality since then, which have only intensified protests across the world. The recent Black Lives Matter protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin occurred after police shot Jacob Blake, a black man, seven times. In the aftermath of these protests, we also saw a shooting death.
