The estate of Aaron Danielson, who was murdered by the antifa terrorist, Michael Reinhoehl has filed a lawsuit against the city of Portland, the mayor, and the county DA for negligence.
The suit argues that the hands-off policy of Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler and the lack of enforcement of Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt contributed heavily in the death of Danielson and that if they had done their jobs from the very beginning, Danielson would still be alive.
Wheeler and Schmidt allowed antifa to practically take over the city and they turned a blind eye to the violence caused by these domestic terrorists, the militant wing of the Democratic party. The city of Portland had riots for over 100 consecutive days.
The suit was filed in federal court on Friday and argues that Danielson would still be alive if the city had not taken the hands-off approach to the violence there and had Schmidt not dropped almost every charge against antifa terrorists.
The estate is suing for a total of $26 million dollars. Thirteen in damages, $1.5 million each in economic damages and non-economic damages, as well as $10 million in punitive damages.
Christopher L. Cauble, the estate’s attorney, said in a statement:
“We are seeking justice for the preventable death of a young man, gunned down in a city with a dangerous and deadly hands-off approach to public safety. Time and time again, City leadership and law enforcement have failed to find an effective response to clashing groups of protesters.”
“Given the enormity of the press coverage over the past several years regarding clashes between left- and right-leaning protest groups in the downtown core of Portland, Defendants knew or should have known that violent clashes would occur.”

“The Danielson estate also accused Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt of playing a role by broadcasting last summer that he had adopted a new policy and generally wouldn’t pursue what he considered public order crimes such as criminal mischief, interfering with an officer or a stand-alone riot charge, and instead would focus on deliberate property damage and threats of force or actual force against others.”
Reinoehl was shot and killed by police and other law enforcement agencies when they went to arrest him for Danielson’s murder.
