Portland Antifa Rioter Gets 5 Years For Setting a Target Store on Fire


One of the rioters at the Portland May Day protest that escalated to violence will reportedly be sentenced to five years in prison for setting a police car and a Target storefront on fire.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports on Monday, 23-year-old Damion Zachary Feller pled guilty to first-degree arson, second-degree arson, riot, and first- degree criminal mischief. In videos of the incident, Feller can be seen throwing burning flares at a police car and into a Target storefront. He was charged in federal court.

Feller will be officially sentenced at a hearing in October.

Although 25 people were arrested for inciting a riot and other offenses during the May Day protest, Feller was arrested two days later after he was recognized from videos of the protests while walking in the streets.

The Oregonian/OregonLive claims when Feller was shown a photo of the person who threw the flare, he responded, “I saw that online, and I knew I was (expletive).”

In his affidavit, Feller said he got swept up in the “mob mentality” of the riot. The Willamette Week reports he also said he acted because he is a “f**king idiot.”

Feller’s plea deal allows him to serve only four years for good behavior.
