Okay.

This guy is DEFINITELY a fed.

When the attack on Any Ngo began, he walked all the way across the street to get close.

He enters the screen on the right.

The man in the camouflage on the right is wearing noise-canceling earphones.

He's also filming.

So the hand signal establishes a chain of custody for the evidence.

The feds can say, "Here's Agent Smith giving the prearranged signal that Antifa is following through on its threat against Andy Ngo."

Lawyers for Portland won't be able to argue that this person is not Andy Ngo.

The Department of Justice has the goods on Portland.

Excellent.

END

ADDENDUM:

I know that the man in camouflage is filming, because another man has linked arms with him.

This allows the man filming to concentrate on his job without worrying that someone will come up and bash him in the head.

The other guy is guarding him.

You see this kind of physical contact in SWAT teams.

@ThomasWic Note the guy with arms linked with the filming agent is giving a response signal to the guy in the foreground

@drawandstrike

Red pants guy seems to have checked out the shake making and folks around it

@zetetic @drawandstrike

He sure did!

Antifia made the same mistake mistake al-Qaeda did:

When there's no vetting, ANYBODY can claim to be one of you and infiltrate your little party.

@ThomasWic @zetetic @drawandstrike

Astonishing!!! Thank you so much, Thomas!

Are we to understand that Andy Gnu was aware, ahead of time, that the Feds would be there in the crowd?

@rarity @zetetic @drawandstrike

I have no idea.

It's possible that after Antifa announced their plan to assault him, he was contacted and asked if he was going to go ahead and attend.

But it's also possible that all those undercover agents were there without Andy's knowledge.

It appears that the feds are building a case against cities that issue stand-down orders to cops.

Hopefully an example will be made of Portland.

@ThomasWic @rarity @zetetic @drawandstrike I saw the Portland precinct is operating with 130 positions unfilled. Maybe somoe LEOs here can quantify what a typical precinct staffing levels are so we can quatify this number.

@RonOgletree
Ron, typical staffing is based on the crime rates, types (felony/misdemeanor), physical assaults, property crimes, etc. over against a city’s per capita then sectioned off into precincts and rates in each area. That’s basically it. It’s not rocket science.

@macoman4u1
Then would that number for a metro precinct be rather high?

Right, always the money.

@RonOgletree
Customarily, yes. Metro has traffic enforcement (big chunk of change). Assaults, property crimes, all that stuff concentrated. Population by type is important. All depends. Metro Atlanta will look different than Metro Charlotte, than metro Houston, than Metro Seattle, etc.
