Another “Peaceful” Protester Arrested in Portland

Yesterday from Oregon’s U.S. Attorney:

Portland Man Charged with Assaulting Deputy U.S. Marshal with Explosive Device During Courthouse Protest

Isaiah Jason Maza, Jr.

PORTLAND, Ore.โ€”U.S. Attorney Billy J. Williams announced today that Isaiah Jason Maza, Jr., 18, of Portland, has been charged by criminal complaint with assaulting a federal officer with a dangerous weapon and willfully damaging government property during protests at the Mark O. Hatfield U.S. Courthouse on July 22, 2020.

According to court documents, in the early morning hours of July 22, 2020, a group of individuals gathered in an exterior entryway of the Hatfield Federal Courthouse.

Several members of the group, including Maza, began removing plywood attached to the front of the building to protect its damaged glass faรงade.

After the group successfully removed the plywood sheeting, Maza made multiple attempts to kick in the window, struck it with a metal object, and repeatedly pounded on it with what appeared to be a hammer.

Shortly thereafter, a number of people successfully removed the entire wooden structure protecting the courthouse entryway and an unknown individual broke one of the windows.

After this breach, Maza walked toward the building carrying a cylindrical object.

Maza then appeared to light a fuse connected to the object and place it inside the broken window

A short time later, the object exploded in close proximity to law enforcement officers exiting the building through the broken window.

A deputy U.S. Marshal sustained injuries to both his legs as a result of the blast.

On July 31, 2020, deputy U.S. Marshals spotted Maza less than one block from the courthouse.

Maza ran from the deputy marshals who pursued him several blocks by foot before catching and arresting him.

Maza made his first appearance in federal court today before a U.S. Magistrate Judge and was ordered detained pending further court proceedings.

Assaulting a federal officer with a dangerous weapon is punishable by up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Willfully damaging government property is punishable by 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

This case is being jointly investigated by the FBI, the U.S. Marshals Service, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. It is being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorneyโ€™s Office for the District of Oregon.

Criminal complaints are only accusations of a crime, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

  1. In my experience, neck tattoos indicate a low IQ individual, and it fits with this guy.

  2. You in a heap o’ trouble, boy.

    And enjoy your soon to be sore azzhole.

  3. Patty O’Kenneally looks a lot like this imbecile but with less hair, fatter cheeks,neck and glasses.

  4. Hope he gets the whole 30 years.

    And what’s up with all these kids parents.

    If your 18 year old kid just got arrested for assaulting a federal officer, you screwed up more than the kid did.

  5. IF YOU DON’T LIKE AMERICA WHY DON’T YOU LEAVE!

    NO ONE IS HOLDING YOU HERE STOP WASTING OUR TAX DOLLARS GO BE A LOSER!

    WHERE YOU TO WANT TO BE… CAUSE YOU HAVE NO RESPECT FOR ANYONE OR ANYTHING … LEAVE… OUR NATION ….

  6. You people are focusing on the symptom (Maza)

    And not the Hollywood, Public School, DNC, TV brainwashers who are the disease.

  7. CPTKangaroo?

    You will never convince the brainwashed that they are under a spell

    They need deprogramming.

  8. No, I’m just enjoying a small amount of justice being served when they do catch one.

    That’s why I blame the parents as much as the 18 year old.

    They were paying no attention while the programming was happening.

    I don’t even know if you can deprogram this.

    We might have a whole generation of people who just are kind of hopeless.

  9. The Socialist and Communist lovers never lived in such countries.

    They have no idea what life is like in those countries. ๐Ÿ˜ฐ

    How many Americans move to Cuba, Haiti, Venezuela or Russia? None! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  10. Eddie,

    Bernie tells me that those countries are great.

    Maybe the solution is a the Bernie bros and the like can just move to Cuba.

  11. What the far left will tell you is those countries are not real socialism.

    They are kind of right, they are not the perfect utopia they are looking for.

    What they fail to realize is that the utopia doesn’t exist.

    It goes against everything in human nature.

    This utopia idea actually starts to take on a religious meaning.

    Communists always end up going after Christians because of this.

    You can’t get to utopia after all if there is a group of people who believe that a perfect world isn’t possible until the return of Christ.

    Overall a very dangerous situation is brewing in this country

    There are two groups of people right now, whose ideas can’t coexist.

  12. Utopia could be just around the corner if Dufus Dementia Joe Biden is elected and Pelosi and Schumer in charge of Congress. Many great things will happen with the implementation of the Green New Deal, open borders policy and voting rights for “undocumented immigrants”. All law abiding citizens in Red States will be asked to turn in their guns to the government. Right wing media persons such as Rush and all of FOX cable will be rehabilitated at government run re-education camps. Right wingers who post on blogs such as this one will be given an opportunity to voluntarily come forward and enroll in these re-education camps.

  13. If that happens one of two results are possible. The USA as we know it is pretty much done or people start fighting back because they like their freedom.

  14. If The Bible counts, Utopia died with The Garden of Eden and won’t return until Jesus does. ๐Ÿ˜‘

  15. “If The Bible counts, Utopia died with The Garden of Eden and wonโ€™t return until Jesus does.”

    Yes it counts, and this is exactly why every socialist / communist country eventually comes after the Christians.

    The two view are opposite and can’t coexist.

  16. This is why I think of Marxism as being more a religious thing than political.

    It does combine both into one, but at it’s core it’s driven by ideas that have more to do with religion.

  17. There’s Nation of Islam which is Black Nationalism, political and religious. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  18. I’m curious.

    Are any current Socialist countries happy and wonderful? ๐Ÿ˜

  19. He looks like a passionate young Democrat, and he behaves just like one, too…

  20. The problem with that is they would still blame the bad orange man, and they would be right.

    The federal government does have the authority to defend federal property and to deal with insurrection if the states fail to do so.

    This has been done many times in our countries history.

  21. Sorry I posted this on the wrong thread if it makes zero sense ignore it.
