U.S Marshals Attack Journalists with CS Gas Grenades

Many filming protests in Portland, Oregon breathed a sigh of relief today when U.S. District Judge Michael Simon issued a Temporary Restraining Order against the Portland Police Bureau exempting journalist and legal observers from dispersal orders. The difference was night and day as streamers filmed freely even while the police broke up the protest. Unfortunately, that created a false sense of security for Sol Luna and other streamers that went back to film the United States Marshals guarding the from door of the federal courthouse.

Watch as the Marshals exit the courthouse, issue no warning whatsoever, and start attacking journalists with CS gas grenades. The U.S. Marshals are not parties to the TRO so now they are the ones attacking journalists.
