Portland uneasy, suspect shouts 'you've got no safe place!'

A man who was stabbed in the neck while trying to stop a man from shouting anti-Muslim insults at two young women on a Portland, Oregon, light-rail train said Wednesday that the city should focus on the girls, not him.

Jeremy Joseph Christian, 35, was booked on suspicion of aggravated murder and attempted murder in the attack and will make a first court appearance Tuesday. He yelled statements including, "Go home, we need American here", "I don't care if you are ISIS", and "Free speech or die". You've got no safe place.

On Monday, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler called on federal authorities to rescind a permit for a June 4 "Trump Free Speech Rally" and not to issue a permit for a June 10 "March Against Sharia".

Officers tightened their grip on his arms as he added, "Death to the enemies of America".

The probable cause affidavit written by Multnomah County Deputy District Attorney Ryan Lufkin says Christian also calls himself a "patriot" and says, "That's what liberalism gets you" as he discusses the killings. "You hear me? Die", he shouted in the courtroom, flanked by two deputies.

"I just want to say thank you to them and their family and that I appreciate them because without them, we probably would be dead right now", she told local Fox affiliate KPTV.

Jeremy Joseph Christian began yelling when he walked into the courtroom Tuesday. Two of the stab victims, 23-year-old Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche and 53-year-old Rick Best, were killed, while 21-year-old Micah Fletcher survived his wounds.

SIEGEL: What do we know about the suspect in this case, about Christian? The day before the stabbing, Christian yelled Islamophobic threats at the driver of another MAX train, according to video surveillance.

Attending the hearing on Tuesday was Micah Fletcher, who was wounded as he tried to defend a black 16-year-old and her Muslim friend as they rode on a crowded train on Friday. "Your words and actions are meaningful, here in America and throughout the world", she wrote.

Asha Deliverance, the mother of Mr Namkai-Meche, has written an open letter calling on Donald Trump to address Islamophobia.

The account is the first complete version of events to be released by Fletcher. "Like, I don't know what to do after that, you know".

Trump's remarks came after the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) called on the president to condemn the rampage and speak out against what the advocacy group sees as an increase in anti-Islamic sentiment. What charges is the state planning to file against the suspect, Jeremy Christian, today?

He answered: "In my heart".

A deputy answered: "We did".
