The news is out: [Following several weeks of protest that resulted in clashes with law enforcement officials in Oregon, the state’s attorney general has launched a criminal investigation into two “unlawful” tactics allegedly made by federal agents.
Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum also announced she filed a federal civil lawsuit on Friday evening against the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Marshals Service and U.S. Customs and Border Protection to begin the process for a restraining order to stop the agents “from unlawfully detaining Oregonians.”
The lawsuit asks for a declaration that the federal agents’ alleged actions violate the First Amendment as well as the Fourth and Fifth Amendments, and “an injunction permanently restraining defendants from engaging in tactics” such as the two incidents Rosenblum says were “unlawful.”
Requests for comment from the named defendants in the civil case were not returned on Saturday.]
Congratulations to all the morons who support law enforcement so they can violate our Constitutional rights. Trump will have to answer to many lawsuits, comes January 2021.
