23-year-old Damion Zachary Feller, an Antifa protester, has been given 5 years in prison for torching a Portland police car and a Target store on May 1st after he admitted he did it earlier this week.
The event itself was caught live by a local TV station which showed Feller throwing a flare through a window at the Target location which prompted employees to extinguish it asap.
Later TV and cellphone footage captured Feller through another flare through an already shattered window of a police SUV just across the street from the above-mentioned Target store, at Southwest 10th Avenue and Morrison.
The Far-left, or alt-left, will continue this level of violence and it will eventually escalate until something is done about it. They fight “against” fascism but are clearly one of the most fascist organizations I think any of us have ever seen.
Feller admitted he was guilty and told detectives that he became part of the “mob mentality,” according to the affidavit.
On Monday, Feller offered no statements in Multnomah County Circuit Court. He wore a blue jail uniform as he stood beside his public defender, DeAnna Horne.
Feller pleaded guilty to first-degree arson, second-degree arson, riot and first-degree criminal mischief. He is scheduled to be sentenced to five years in prison during an October hearing.
He also was charged in federal court for his crimes. But as part of his plea deal, he won’t be sentenced to any additional prison time.
Feller will be eligible for release from prison after four years, if he gets time off for good behavior.
Shortly after his arrest, Feller told authorities that he doesn’t talk to his family, which includes his grandmother in Longview and his parents in Colorado. He said he’d been homeless for the past year, been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and smoked marijuana daily.
