Christian was arraigned in Multnomah County Circuit Court on three felony murder charges, one felony assault charge, three felony weapons charges and two misdemeanour counts of intimidation.

The survivor of a stabbing attack in Portland, Oregon, that left two people dead and allegedly involved hate speech told ABC News that it is the "civic duty" and "moral responsibility" of all Portland residents to make sure all who live there feel at home.

You have said that you will be President for all Americans.

"He told us to go back to Saudi Arabia and he told us we shouldn't be here, to get out of his country", Mangum told KPTV. And I think he's also anxious about the kind of thing, you know, that we saw in court today where you have supporters of the victims in this case and people who are calling themselves free speech activists clashing and that that could lead to more violence.

"You call it terrorism, I call it patriotism, you hear me?"

As the court hearing ended, protesters could be heard outside the courtroom yelling "bigot" and "murderer". They fearlessly risked their lives for two young women who were threatened by an act of bigotry & terror. Police say when three other men on the train, including surviving victim Micah Fletcher, intervened, Christian attacked them.

Rick Best, a 53-year-old Army veteran and father of four, and 23-year-old Taliesin Myrddin Namkai Meche were stabbed and died from their injuries.

In video described by the affidavit, Christian made a sudden movement toward Namkai-Meche, adding, "Do something, bitch". Jeremy Christian yelled as he walked into the courtroom Tuesday.

Since Trump's election, Portland has led all major metropolitan areas in reported hate crimes, Mayor Ted Wheeler's office said.

Court documents allege Christian was drinking alcohol when he verbally accosted to girls on the train. The public defender, who was introducing the case to the judge, halted his introduction while the wild-haired murder suspect continued on his tirade.

KGW-TV reports (https://goo.gl/HJjwpI) that Micah Fletcher says he's focusing on trying to get better.

"We turned around while they were fighting and he just started stabbing people", Magum said.

If you are a grown-ass person who has been able to gin up social media stomping outrage over the former but has remained silent and "prayerful" over the latter, you are a awful f**king person and I worry for your soul.

Please encourage all Americans to protect and watch out for one another. In a letter to Trump, Asha Deliverance said her son and two other men acted did not hesitate to confront the bully because the two female passengers were being harassed and that she was grieving but proud of her son's selfless action.

A bicyclist walking his bike down a ramp in Portland, Ore., Wednesday, May 30, 2017, is surrounded by messages, flowers, images and candles at the memorial for two men fatally stabbed on a light rail train in Portland last week. The victims were standing up to hate and intolerance. "Our prayers are w/ them", the President of the United States Twitter account said Monday.

Your words and actions are meaningful, here in America and throughout the world.

In the wake of the attack, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler is asking the federal government to cancel a permit for what he called an "alt-right" rally scheduled for this Sunday, saying the event could make a hard situation worse.
