Figured I should post this. I took this directly across the street from those pillars. This is where Donovan Labella got blammed in the face by DHS for standing in the street by himself with his hands in the air holding a speaker playing music. That's his blood all over the sidewalk. If you're upset about the graffiti, this brought the City of Portland out to tell the Fed Goons to get the fark out of our town.

dirkhardly: So in your vast legal expertise what constitutes a legitimate or necessary delay? Do you really think that language means instantaneously or anything close to it?


In my 17 years of practice as an attorney, it's meant 24-72 hours after arrest.  24 hours, Monday thru Thursday, arrested on Friday, expect to be before a judge on Monday.

dirkhardly: Langdon_777: dirkhardly: cannibalparrot: Mikey1969: dwrash: They will be brought up on federal charges.

So why haven't they been charged already? It was federal agents who detained them, so if it was a legit bust, why weren't they charged immediately?

And if these were legitimate arrests, why did the police hide their identities?

They didn't hide their identities as LEOs but federal LEOs don't typically wear nametags unlike regular police. And how familiar are you with federal criminal processes? Are you under the impression these things move quickly? Especially right now? I'm also waiting anxiously for all these false arrest/imprisonment lawsuits that are sure to come cascading in any day now (unlike other civil rights lawsuits against the government these are pretty easy to prove if valid)

I am pretty sure the laws they were enforcing outside of the "federal land" were state laws.  All of those stormtroopers need to be held accountable for what they did, and those who ordered them to do it, let the lowbies claim "following orders" then work the way up.

Even if the offense is federal solely because it took place on federal land federal LEOs can arrest you for that offense pretty much anywhere in the US. And how do you know they weren't executing federal arrest warrants after probable cause was submitted before a duly sworn judge or magistrate?


Because if these arrests had been based upon a warrant the requirement under the Federal Criminal Rule 5 require that " (A) A person making an arrest within the United States must take the defendant without unnecessary delay before a magistrate judge, or before a state or local judicial officer asRule 5(c)provides, unless a statute provides otherwise."

Oh no!  The powerwasher and trash pickup businesses are going to be giving out Christmas bonuses and overtime!  Horrors!

I assume you are going to pay for those bonues' and overtime?

Everyone that is arrested should have to spend community service time to clean up their mess instead of having taxpayers pony up paying for their misguided mischief.


Sure.  If you convict the people who spraypainted the walls in a court of law with proof beyond a reasonable doubt by a jury of their peers, you can. That's hundreds of trials, costing the taxpayers hundreds of dollars, which you won't be able to recoup in court costs and fines for grafitti.  That's going to cost more than just hiring someone to just clean it up.  You'd prefer to pay the cost for those hundreds of trials, many of which might find the defendant innocent, than just pony up for a powerwasher?  Not very fiscally conservative of you.

You mean, by not identifying themselves? Got it.

You mean like vandalizing federal property, trespassing on federal property and assault/battery on fed officers? Yeah once they have PC for any of those they can arrest you anywhere in the country. You are factually wrong. Give up

Not at all. I mean the people they were randomly picking up blocks away from the protests, as has been widely covered.

Nice try, though.

And how would you, or any observer, know that they were arresting people "randomly" genius? Did the feds announce that they were doing so? How could anyone possibly know whether they had previously identified someone as a suspect in a federal crime before the arrest was made? Did you put one moment of critical thought into this before just accepting what you wanted to be true as factual?

Also, since federal cops arrested detained/kidnapped the people, with no official (or unofficial) agreement with the state, city, or county, it would seem that these people would have to be charged federally anyway, wouldn't they?

Having served as a foreman on a Jury and rendered a verdict in a criminal case myself (DUI case if that makes any difference) myself, listening to the initiating cop have to explain how he thought the driver ran a Red light when it was in fact a Yield lane, then pulled them over for driving *on* but not *over* the line for 50 feet, and having two other officers give directly contradictory testimony on multiple points during the DA's own questioning, and the DA not get any of those ducks in a row beforehand, you are substantially more trusting of these figures than you should be.

We were very explicit up front that violence and vandalism at our rally would be quelled by the rally members themselves.  It was interesting to hear the local head of the NAACP inform people that if they started to riot and stuff that they themselves would beat you down rather than the police.

For our resident GED-in-law please read
County of Riverside v. McLaughlin, 500 U.S. 44 (1991)


Where an arrested individual does not receive a probable cause determination within 48 hours, the calculus changes. In such a case, the arrested individual does not bear the burden of proving an unreasonable delay. Rather, the burden shifts to the government to demonstrate the existence of a bona fide emergency or other extraordinary circumstance. The fact that, in a particular case, it may take longer than 48 hours to consolidate pretrial proceedings does not qualify as an extraordinary circumstance. Nor, for that matter, do intervening weekends. A jurisdiction that chooses to offer combined proceedings must do so as soon as is reasonably feasible, but in no event later than 48 hours after arrest.

I assumed that the people being grabbed by pseudo-federal agents were going to be charged by the feds, not the locals.

They were all accounted for.  They have all been released.  Some were taken before a judge in the building and released on bond.  I can't recall what they were charged with.

So we can assume for now that those who bonded out were arrested with sufficient PC and didn't have their Constitutional rights violated can't we? Got any evidence of cases where it is otherwise?

No you can't.  You can't assume anything based on what happens at a preliminary hearing on the charge.  The criminal defense attorney could have brought it up then, the judge could have overruled him, but he can still bring it up later.  You don't waive any defences by pleading not guilty at the preliminary hearing and getting a future court date and bonding out.

Yes you can presume, "for now" as I stated. If the arrest stands so far then one can presume that it is far more likely that the arrest is not so obviously flawed as to be apparent from the start, I.e. a complete lack of PC. And yet people here and in the media are arguing that these arrests are without legal justification when the available evidence shows the opposite


You can assume anything you want, I guess.  And, as has been previously mentioned, some people were taken into custody, not taken before a judge, and released when they requested an attorney, without being charged.  Those are the cases that present as an arrest without probably cause.

And at what cost to Taxpayers, the court system, the DA's time (and conviction record), all the cops having to be called in as witnesses, and the life disruption to the people being charged? For hundreds of misdemeanor cases?

No, dropping the charges is absolutely the right thing to do.

Ninety-something percent of convictions are due to plea bargains. Trials are the exception, not the rule

As someone who was on the finalist list as a federal magistrate I can tell you that the magistrates in a district are on call even during weekends (depending on the number in a given district it can be a once a month "gig" and in the old days you got a beeper and then would call in) to do an initial appearance and will normally not even allow it to go that long.

Their issue with my "personality" seems to be not wanting to be told they are wrong. Me, I blame them for posting wrong shiat without bothering to find out different. Not sure why people would defend posting wrong, dumb shiat and attacking people who correct you. Must be the whole "pathetically insecure" thing

No, their issue with your "personality" is that it's combative, repellent and arrogant.  Coupled with your weak argument it's not a good look for you.

There are legal professionals responding to you and your sum total argument seems to boil down to "NO U!", which is never a solid tactic.  You even admit to not having bothered to look some things up (despite this monster wait you were allegedly going through) so why should anybody take you seriously again?  You haven't provided citations, you're just a mouthpiece stomping his impotent little feet because adults won't pay attention to how you think things SHOULD be.

Any clearer for you?

Combative and arrogant is a matter of perspective isn't it? Me, I see a bunch of people, starting with subby and going quickly off the rails from there, who post wrong, stupid shiat and don't like getting called on it so they double down and start hurling insults. Talking out of your ass in the first place is a fine example of arrogance, and it's even more arrogant when you attack the person who just corrects your mistake even though you know deep down you were talking out of your ass in the first place. See, I know they're wrong because I bother to know what I'm talking about and it's not my fault other people don't. I fully blame them. So do you really need a cite that a county DA has nothing to do with federal arrests/charges? And what cites or even basic arguments has anyone offered to rebut anything I've posted? Show me. What evidence or cites ha ...

Do you think that the current situation might just change what is considered "reasonable" under the circumstances? And again, show me where I stated something incorrectly that you are ostensibly correcting? And, since you still don't seem to get it, I never stated that the feds had an unlimited time to bring arrestees before a judge. This has nothing to do with anything except people are alleging wrongdoing by the feds, including Constitutional violations, and have failed to produce any evidence of it whatsoever


Please read
Powell v. Nevada, 511 U.S. 79 (1994)

Which negates your "shiatty argument" there is no basis for claiming a constitutional violation for those who were released as soon as they asked for lawyers without a an "initial appearance" or "arraignment", and in particular Justice Ginsberg's majority opinion which indicated " County of Riverside v. McLaughlin, 500 U. S. 44 (1991), the Nevada Supreme Court recognized, made specific the probable-cause promptness requirement of Gerstein v. Pugh, 420 U. S. 103 (1975); McLaughlin instructed that a delay exceeding 48 hours presumptively violates the Fourth Amendment." (at page 83)

NO, it's highly unlikely.  In fact, some of the detainees in Portland appeared before a judge in the building and were released with a future court date and on bail.  In the cases you mentioned, the judges could take an initial plea by in court video.

Yes, it's reported some have.  I have not heard of any attorney's making deals in Portland.  I do live in Ohio, but am part of the criminal defense community, and the criminal defense group I'm part of on facebook is silent on it.  If deals are being made, the defense bar association would be discussing it.

Even if the offense is federal solely because it took place on federal land federal LEOs can arrest you for that offense pretty much anywhere in the US. And how do you know they weren't executing federal arrest warrants after probable cause was submitted before a duly sworn judge or magistrate?

Because if these arrests had been based upon a warrant the requirement under the Federal Criminal Rule 5 require that " (A) A person making an arrest within the United States must take the defendant without unnecessary delay before a magistrate judge, or before a state or local judicial officer asRule 5(c)provides, unless a statute provides otherwise."

So in your vast legal expertise what constitutes a legitimate or necessary delay? Do you really think that language means instantaneously or anything close to it?


The DOJ lists it as that day or the next day
"Either the same day or the day after a defendant is arrested and charged, they are brought before a magistrate judge for an initial hearing on the case. "

And what would you think makes it "necessarily" to delay past this as initial arraignment are available via electronic means and federal magistrates were available, in your vast legal experience, counselor?

Oh no!  The powerwasher and trash pickup businesses are going to be giving out Christmas bonuses and overtime!  Horrors!

I assume you are going to pay for those bonues' and overtime?

Everyone that is arrested should have to spend community service time to clean up their mess instead of having taxpayers pony up paying for their misguided mischief.


who paid the overtime for the federal agents that were also there and part of the mess?  how about we call them to clean up?  they are already on the payroll anyway.

Jake Havechek: The DHS knows that Hitler disbanded the brownshirts and had the leaders killed when the Waffen SS replaced them, right?


I expect that their knowledge of history extends to reading the chapter title, thinking ""The Night of Long Knives" sounds metal awesome!", and nothing more

/ I mean, if they'd paid attention in history they'd know that the fascists - how should I word this... - didn't win

This is from the U.S. Attorney (not the the federal district attorney- which is a position that does not exist) :

"Based on news accounts circulating that allege federal law enforcement detained two protestors without probable cause, I have requested the Department of Homeland Security Office of the Inspector General to open a separate investigation directed specifically at the actions of DHS personnel. "

I am sure that DHS "will investigate themselves and clear themselves of all wrongdoing"

dirkhardly: sdd2000: dwrash: Langdon_777: Over a day later and I find you even less likeable than yesterday.

What the feds did in Portland was wrong and should never have happened, it was a dangerous overstep of federal power in a state's turf.

The federal building is not state turf, its like an embassy.. it is Federal Property.

And where the "arrests" all made within or on federal property by the unmarked federal officers or on the basis of some federal crime? Were the vans the people were pushed into on federal property? Were the people arrested taken before a federal magistrate within the 48 hours that Powell v. Nevada, 511 U.S. 79 (1994) and  County of Riverside v. McLaughlin, 500 U.S. 44 (1991) preemptively demarcates the timeline under Federal Criminal Rule 5 ?

I don't know. Do you have any evidence they weren't? Do you really think, given the checks in our system, that this could go unnoticed by everyone, especially the Courts, watching? Where has any arrestee or any attorney acting on behalf of a client made such allegations?


Please see the complaint as well as the affidavit attached   https://www.doj.state.or.us/media-hom​e​/news-media-releases/attorney-general-​rosenblum-files-lawsuit-against-u-s-ho​meland-security-announces-criminal-inv​estigation/

And I can assure you with a reasonable degree of certainty that  the Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum is aware of Federal Rule 11.

sdd2000: The Envoy: dirkhardly: Which post by RyogaM? And did they maybe start the shiat slinging first? Look at my interaction with Hyjamon. They were nothing but civil and I was nothing but civil back. And in the grown-up world I live and operate in, the legal world for instance, you don't spout bullshiat instead of facts or talk shiat without a reckoning. So you stay safe here in the comments where you can pretend you're smart or have the moral high ground

Ctrl-F "RyogaM".  66 entries.  Go for it.  You read it, because you attempted to denigrate it later.  Feigned ignorance, do you use that tactic in your "grown-up world" too?

You don't even need to go that far to see that his feigned, "I was above that and did not call anyone names" bovine excrement. All you need to do is read his Boobies in this thread where his Boobies said "As pretty par for the course, subby is dumb" That of course in his mind is how a brilliant legal argument should be made.


Note he's in the "legal world".  I reckon he's a paralegal or an average 2nd year law student.  Possibly a legal secretary who thinks he's going to be the next Erin Brockovich.

dirkhardly: The Envoy: dirkhardly: It's funny how so many here react to actual facts.

That, or they're reacting to your charming personality.

Their issue with my "personality" seems to be not wanting to be told they are wrong. Me, I blame them for posting wrong shiat without bothering to find out different. Not sure why people would defend posting wrong, dumb shiat and attacking people who correct you. Must be the whole "pathetically insecure" thing


No, their issue with your "personality" is that it's combative, repellent and arrogant.  Coupled with your weak argument it's not a good look for you.

There are legal professionals responding to you and your sum total argument seems to boil down to "NO U!", which is never a solid tactic.  You even admit to not having bothered to look some things up (despite this monster wait you were allegedly going through) so why should anybody take you seriously again?  You haven't provided citations, you're just a mouthpiece stomping his impotent little feet because adults won't pay attention to how you think things SHOULD be.

Any clearer for you?

dwrash: Mikey1969: dirkhardly: You are 100% wrong. Federal arrest jurisdiction extends to pretty much the entire US.

For federal crimes. Not for standing on the street.


And they are under no obligation legally to identify themselves more than they did

You mean, by not identifying themselves? Got it.

They had police patches on their front and back.  No names though because of doxing.

And that is really what this is about, the police are not giving you the same opportunity that the police were given.  Idiot protesters posting YouTube videos that the feds now have a team of people working through and arresting all the idiots that appear on the videos committing crimes.

Deliciously ironic.


O_o They black-bagged people that were in in the area, literally between the courthouse and justice center (and ultimately had to release at least one without charge as soon as they asked for a lawyer), the Feds aren't going through YouTube videos and arresting people after the fact days/weeks later, especially after being told to stay the fark off our streets, there hasn't been a federal arrest in almost two weeks.

flondrix: I'll ask again:  Has everyone who was "disappeared" into an unmarked van been accounted for?

I assumed that the people being grabbed by pseudo-federal agents were going to be charged by the feds, not the locals.


They were all accounted for.  They have all been released.  Some were taken before a judge in the building and released on bond.  I can't recall what they were charged with.

Good luck with THAT theory in court, counselor.  Oh, wait, you spoke at a BLM protest, didn't you?  And members of BLM spraypainted the federal building in Washington.  Hey, guys, dwarsh is guilty of the graffitti in Portland, make him pay!


We were very explicit up front that violence and vandalism at our rally would be quelled by the rally members themselves.  It was interesting to hear the local head of the NAACP inform people that if they started to riot and stuff that they themselves would beat you down rather than the police.

Sure.  If you convict the people who spraypainted the walls in a court of law with proof beyond a reasonable doubt by a jury of their peers, you can. That's hundreds of trials, costing the taxpayers hundreds of dollars, which you won't be able to recoup in court costs and fines for grafitti.  That's going to cost more than just hiring someone to just clean it up.  You'd prefer to pay the cost for those hundreds of trials, many of which might find the defendant innocent, than just pony up for a powerwasher?  Not very fiscally conservative of you.


Yet it is consistent...look at the 'drug test welfare recipients" in FL, cost more than the savings.

I always use this analogy: some people will hire security at $100 a day to prevent $5 loss due to theft.

The smart thing would be follow through with the charges.  Then you can make a very public spectacle of how ridiculous it was that the people were arrested in the first place and how little evidence there was of wrong doing.

A jury will have no problem acquitting, and everybody can point at laugh at how  Trump's SS nazied the ppl of Portland.

(Unless the evidence doesn't actually show that)
