Have any of those arrested in Portland been arraigned/indicted yet?

Iíve read that 18 protestors were arrested and are still in custody pending arraignment on federal charges including failure to disperse and destruction of property.

I ask this because:

1) In order to file charges, doesnít there have to be a report from the arresting officer? That officer would have to be named, as would any other officers listed as witnesses or assisting in the arrest.

2) the arrest and court records would available to the public, would they not?

3) the leak of the memo from Chad stating his troops are not trained In crowd control could be used as a Defense.

4) the fact that as acting director of DHS, Chadís term has exceeded the 210 day limit prescribed by law - so, wouldnít he have no authority to direct his stormtroopers, and thus their presence would be unlawful?

We will soon see if there is any serious attempt at using the courts to prosecute protestors, in which case, I think the People will gain the upper hand.

2. I have heard...

That some of the protesters will be charged as terrorists. I'm going to check into that more, but that is as dark and ominous as it gets. That word is loaded and can be used as a tool for tyranny.

10. Mostly misdemeanors

I think many cases will be dropped

Some are charged with creating a disturbance and failure to follow a lawful order. (The penalty is probably banning them from ongoing protests...as is one woman who was arrested for misdemeanor assault of federal agent)
