PJM: Malik Fard Muhammad, 25, and his girlfriend Kristin McGuire traveled from Indianapolis, Ind., to Portland, Ore., to fight with cops. Muhammad will be extending his stay for an extra ten years, compliments of the feds.
As per a document from the Department of Justice (DOJ), Muhammad traveled to Portland for the sole purpose of rioting.
Muhammad is alleged to have traveled to Portland with his girlfriend from their home in Indianapolis for the specific purpose of violently engaging in civil disorder during recent area riots. On September 5, 2020, during a large civil disturbance in east Portland, demonstrators threw dangerous objects at police, including commercial grade fireworks, Molotov cocktails, and bottles. At least one demonstrator was seriously burned by a Molotov cocktail thrown in the direction of police. Muhammad was present at this event and provided baseball bats to members of the crowd.
The document further states that information gleaned from Muhammad’s phone proves he passed out baseball bats to other rioters and bragged about it to friends. His phone also provided a shopping list of items needed to make Molotov cocktails. more
