There was a stabbing on a Max Train in Portland, Oregon when a 35 yr old pulled a knife on 3 men trying to protect 2 Muslim women

Jeremy Joseph Christian, a 35-year-old arrested in the killing of Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche, 23, and Rick Best, 53, was arraigned recently.  During his court appearance, he ranted from behind protective glass about free speech and called himself a patriot.  

He's accused of pulling a knife and striking the neck of one man and killing two others, those who came to the aid of two girls who were the target of Christian's racist vitriol aboard the MAX train as it pulled into the Hollywood transit station, according to police and witnesses.
