Antifa Domestic Terrorist Gets Sentence For Brutal Attack
Antifa thug Gage Halupowski has been punished to six years in prison after defeating a male with a baton and also splitting his head open. Halupowski’s sentence is light since he made a plea deal that saw a lot of the fees against him went down. This sentence rates news after many Antifa troublemakers have literally escaped a collection of crimes. The attack on Adam Kelly happened on the exact same day that press reporter Andy Ngo was drastically beaten. Andy wound up in the healthcare facility with what was referred to as a “mind hemorrhage.”
Antifa has been able to continue their violence due to the fact that liberal prosecutors as well as juries favored to allow them go. For most, police have stood lazily by and permitted the assaults by the Antifa goons that just attack in packs.
The Oregonian reports:
A 24-year-old man who hit another man over the head with a baton in June during dueling downtown Portland demonstrations was sentenced Friday to nearly six years in prison.
Gage Halupowski pleaded guilty to second-degree assault in connection with the June 29 attack on Adam Kelly outside The Nines Hotel along Southwest Morrison Street. Halupowski was identified as one of several masked, black-clothed demonstrators seen on video hitting and pepper-spraying Kelly after he appeared to come to the aid of another man who’d been attacked during the protests, authorities said.
Multnomah County Deputy District Attorney Melissa Marrero said Halupowski hitting Kelly in the back of the head with an expandable baton was “completely unexplainable, completely unavoidable and didn’t need to happen.”
She said Kelly and Halupowski both were lucky that Kelly survived his injuries.
Defense attorney Edward Kroll said Halupowski made “a really terrible decision” and that Kelly didn’t deserve what happened to him, but the attorney believed the agreed-upon 70-month prison sentence was “one of the harshest sentences I’ve seen for someone with no criminal background and young age.”
Marrero disagreed with Kroll’s assertions, saying she felt the charges and sentence were appropriate based on the severity of Kelly’s injuries and Halupowski’s strike. She said first-degree assault, which carried a potential 90-month sentence, and riot charges were initially considered in the case.
The prosecutors also said another person has been indicted and more people are under investigation in the same attack and other incidents stemming from the June demonstrations.
“My office has individuals charged on both sides of the political spectrum,” Marerro said. “We are not picking sides based on political affiliation, political views or anything like that.”
Halupowski didn’t give any statements while in court Friday. Kelly sat in the gallery behind him. His bald head bore several scars. He declined to comment after the court hearing.
Additional charges of unlawful use of a weapon, attempted assault of a public safety officer and interfering with a peace officer were dropped as part of Halupowski’s plea deal.
Court documents show that a Portland police officer saw Halupowski hit Kelly, followed him and pointed him out to other officers who helped arrest him. He was accused of punching another officer in the arm while being taken into custody.
