Another crazed leftist protester receives a prison sentence stemming from the rampant chaos that has enveloped Portland. William Bryant Pierce took a plea deal and a three year prison sentence after using his anarchist flag staff to attack a disabled man who was trying to get by on the sidewalk.

The initial story, from August of 2018, via KPTV Fox 12:
A local man said a Portland protester attacked him with a flagpole outside City Hall on Thursday.
The alleged assault occurred on Southwest 4th Avenue near City Hall just before 10:30 a.m., according to the Portland Police Bureau.
Police said the suspect, 33-year old Warren Pierce, was arrested and is facing an assault charge.
Officers said the pole was collected as evidence.
With a swollen and black eye, 60-year old Tim Schmitz spoke with FOX12 after being released from the hospital.
Schmitz said he may have a detached retina after an Abolish ICE protester jabbed him in the face, with what he believed was a 6-foot flag pole.
“He started coming at me through the window and started spearing me with the flagpole. I ducked it six or eight times and he finally got me the one time,” Schmitz said.
Schmitz said it all started when he was leaving City Hall, trying to make his way past a crowded sidewalk full of Abolish ICE protesters when he and one demonstrator began exchanging words.
Schmitz said he got in his truck to leave, pulled out to the street, where he stopped at a red light. That’s when he said the protester followed him, ran out into the street, and jabbed the flagpole through his truck window, striking his eye.
“I’m really disgusted with Portland. I’m disgusted and I feel ashamed that I even call it my birthplace. I know all about protesting and I understand it, I agree with. I don’t agree with stepping on my rights to do it though, especially because you don’t like what I say,” Schmitz said.
