The leftwing Portland DA caters to anarchist criminals.
A Portland Antifa member who spent years in prison for a child sex crime conviction pleaded guilty this morning to stabbing a black conservative livestreamer during the 2020 BLM-Antifa riots.
Blake David Hampe, 46, pleaded guilty in a sweetheart deal to felony second-degree attempted assault. He will serve no prison time, instead getting three years of probation. The charge is downgraded from the original felony second-degree assault charge. A felony charge of unlawful use of a weapon was dropped in the plea deal.
On July 25, 2020—during the height of the nightly far-left rioting in downtown Portland—Hampe was recorded on video stabbing Andrew Duncomb. Duncomb was hospitalized and narrowly survived being paralyzed as the blade pierced inches from his spinal cord.
Hampe had his face covered with a helmet and goggles during the attack and nearly escaped. This reporter witnessed him being captured by a protest crowd who mistook him for being a right-winger following the stabbing. After he was booked into jail, Hampe’s $250,000 bond was covered by a far-left bail support group.
The case dragged on for nearly three years with multiple trial dates pushed back. During this time, Antifa extremists in Portland intimidated Duncomb for his participation in the case by targeting him at his place of employment. In March this year, Antifa harassed him at a grocery store and successfully had him fired as security over false claims he is a white supremacist.
Despite Hampe failing to show up to several court dates, the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office under Mike Schmidt offered him the sweetheart resolution deal.
……In 2008, Hampe was federally convicted for possessing child sex abuse content after he was caught by U.S. Customs and Border Protection with the material on a computer upon re-entering from Nova Scotia, Canada. According to court records, officers grew suspicious of Hampe’s nervous behavior and seeing children’s toys and underwear in his car in September 2006.
“In addition to the sleeping bags, there were children’s stickers, children’s underwear, children’s towels or blankets with super heroes printed on them and packages of trading cards,” wrote an investigator in a court filing. “The officers also found 12 -15 condoms, a container of personal lubricant, a camera, a cell phone and an Apple laptop computer.”
……Hampe was sentenced to nearly three-and-half years in prison. He served three years before being released early and relocating from Maine to Portland, Ore. in 2011.
……Stabbing victim Andrew Duncomb sent The Post Millennial a victim statement provided to the court upon finding out about Hampe’s plea deal: “I spent almost 2 years after the stabbing dealing with PTSD issues and dealing with resentment I had towards Mr. Hampe. I have healed from a lot of the mental effects this incident has had on my life and I’m just ready to put it all behind me.
Antifa terrorists not only tried to kill the guy but harassed him for daring to seek justice. Places in this country that are run by Progs need an enema.
Antifa/BLM goons responsible for murder and destruction of neighborhoods, businesses, police stations, and courthouses, have skated out of any legal consequences for their crimes. The Dems foster and encourage that shit. The Feds refuse to prosecute.
