Anarchists leak water hose into office of Portland lawyer who represents ICE employees

Damage to law office caused by anarchists

The “tolerant” left strike again.

As reported by Oregon Live:

Sometime over the weekend, anonymous vandals stuck a garden hose through the front-door mail slot of lawyer Sean Riddell’s Northeast Portland office and left the water running. Someone who works in the office — a house converted into business space — discovered the mess about 2:30 p.m. Sunday.

Riddell and lawyer Christine Mascal, who run separate legal practices under the same roof, wondered if someone targeted one of them because of a case or whether it was a random vandal, Riddell said.

On Monday, Riddell apparently got an answer — in the form of an email forwarded to him from a Willamette Week reporter who said she received it earlier that day. The email, signed “some anarchists,” claims responsibility and says the authors hoped to “cause maximum economic damage” to Riddell because he provides legal representation to the National ICE Council, the union for local employees of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

“For every child that is separated from their parents and locked in a cage, there are people making money off it,” reads the email, posted in a Willamette Week story.

Riddell called police Sunday after the initial discovery. If caught, the vandal or vandals could face felony charges of first-degree criminal mischief or second-degree burglary for entering the space of his office through the mail slot, which had been painted shut.

Riddell said his law office has video surveillance cameras and so do area businesses. He called police again Monday and let them know he was forwarding along the email claiming responsibility. The email also was posted anonymously Monday morning to an anarchist website.

On Tuesday, industrial-strength fans were blowing across the warped wooden floors of the law office and some of the still-soggy carpet in the basement, where the water had poured through floor vents from the first-floor office. Workers were tearing up the carpet before it could turn moldy.

Riddell said insurance will likely pay for the damage.

He noted that the people unhappy with him weren’t willing to stand up for what they believe in by identifying themselves. “I have the courage of my convictions,” Riddell said. “I put my name on what I do.”

Sounds like they read the George Hayduke book “Don’t Get Mad… Get Even”…. Lot of similar pranks in that particular piece of literature.

Yes, that was Edward Abbey and his main issue was protecting wilderness areas. Politically Abbey was close to Libertarian. He had nothing but contempt for hippie eco-freaks although he was the inspiration for Earth First. He was a true individualist and an American original. I always enjoyed his writing and I think he would be horrified at where the “green” movement is today. He was from a different time

I am an avid reader too and have enjoyed Edward Abbey’s work. You are right about his being close to a Libertarian. His novel “The Brave Cowboy” was made into the movie “Lonely Are The Brave” which is one of my favorite movies.

Yes, great movie, Kirk Douglas. Abbey actually had a cameo in it. The “anarchists” embraced him for a time but he had one quality that they would find offensive: he was very patriotic, he loved this country. His last words were: no comment

Since this is Portland OR I assume they will get the merest slap on the wrist if caught. These pathetic fruitcake “anarchists” really think they are “speaking truth to power” or some such gibberish. They have neither courage nor convictions. If they ever succeed in getting their civil war they will hide out in Mom’s basement as soon as the shooting starts. Vandalizing a lawyers’ home; such a formidable foe we’re up against. We give up, open the borders

DCG . . . Excellent article from here in Portland, OR. . . the land of batsh*t crazy leftists. I guess they sure taught that lawyer somethin’ . . . the insurance company will pay. Then when they get around to looking at the dollar amounts of claims paid out–they will just raise their rates on EVERY POLICY HOLDER, not just this attorney to recoup and plan for the increase of incidents that must be covered. It amazes me just how ignorant, particularly these young “Antifa” sorts really are. I wish there was an island large enough to send them… Read more »

“I wish there was an island large enough to send them to”

There is. Greenland. They can live off the land, if they can find it under the ice

The NW leftards are uncouth louts, punks. We have just as many in the NE but they are more sophisticated and better at passing as humans. They’ve had more time to practice

Lately the Mayor has essentially told the cops to not interfere with leftist activities. Portland, and similar cities, are some of the first full implementations of the Odor. No matter what someone thinks about this, if you step back and look it only makes sense in that context. The taxpayers may pay their salaries, but these “officials” do not work for them. So far, they haven’t encountered enough angry resistance. There are only two possibilities. One is that it will continue to sink into utter lawlessness and chaos, or two, the citizenry will rise up and take control of their… Read more »
