Following many grand jury indictments, the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office officially announced charges against Antifa rioters in Portland. The charges come from a variety of crimes committed over the last two weeks.

Charges against these Antifa members include felony riot and criminal mischief. The New York Post’s Andy Ngô, who was recently attacked at these riots reported all the charges in detail.

Left-leaning District Attorney Mike Schmidt dropped the vast majority of charges against Antifa rioters last year. But now, a spokesman told the Post that he “continuously condemned property damage and violence.”

On Sunday, Mexican prosecutors said they have charged seven individuals in the infamous “Fast and Furious” weapons trafficking scandal. Among those charged in the more than decade old case  were former top police official Genaro Garcia Luna and former drug lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman.

“Fast and Furious” was and investigation in which agents from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives sold guns to criminals with the intention of tracking the weapons.

The plan went horribly wrong, and the agency lost most of the guns, including two guns that were found at the scene of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry who was murdered In December of 2010.

Terry’s murder exposed the bungled investigation. Fox News reports Mexico says drug gangs and former officials also participated in or failed to stop the weapons trafficking. Garcia Luna was arrested in Texas in 2019 for allegedly protecting a drug gang.

Luna was security chief in President Felipe Calderon’s 2006-2012 administration, and was also tasked with being the leader of the government’s fight against organized crime. Also charged was former Federal Police commander Luis Cardenas Palomino, who was the right-hand man of Garcia Luna.

Palomino was already arrested on charges of torture and U.S. prosecutors have separately accused him of accepting millions in bribes from the Sinaloa cartel, reports Fox News. Drug lord ‘El Chapo’ was also charged with weapons trafficking, but is already serving a life sentence in Colorado.
