The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Foundation of Oregon has gone to a federal court to hold feds in contempt for the alleged attacks on legal observers and journalists at the protests that took place in Portland.
ACLU, Oregon says that many federal officers disrupted the restraining order that was issued recently that banned officers from arresting, scattering or using force against legal observers and journalists at the protests.
They alleged that the officers from U.S. Marshals Service and Homeland Security dishonored the order “within hours” of its application.
The motion requested the court to order all agents who supposedly violated the order to “be identified, personally appear, and be prohibited from participating in any armed operations within the District of Oregon.”
The motion reads that the violations “are intentional acts by a lawless president.” It reads that the POTUS sent the forces to shoot up in Portland and choke it in a haze of chemical fumes in order to get some reelection soundbites.
The motion states that multiple photos and videos show feds spraying and shooting projectiles at “clearly marked” the press and legal observers.
