"Suffice to say, I think it's immensely, immensely morally wrong and irresponsible how much money we have gotten as opposed to how much support, money, love, kindness, that has been given to that little girl". A stranger intervened, telling Christian he couldn't disrespect the girls in such a way, she said. He underwent two hours of surgery to remove bone fragments from his throat, and was released from the hospital Tuesday.
Christian faces aggravated murder and other charges.
"Apparently the knife, when the gentleman stabbed me, the hilt, it hit my jawbone and broke it, and I thought it was centimeters but apparently it was millimeters away from my carotid artery", he said.
Immediately upon entering the Multnomah County Justice Center Courthouse in OR for his arraignment on Tuesday, Jeremy Christian loudly interrupted the ongoing proceedings from inside his holding chamber, as two officers flanked him. The men were protecting two young women who were the target of the 35-year-old's anti-Muslim slurs.
Additionally, federal authorities are weighing whether or not to prosecute Jeremy Joseph Christian for hate crimes, after he allegedly killed two men following a racially charged confrontation.
Jeremy Christian appeared defiant and unapologetic as he shouted, "You call it terrorism, I call it patriotism", during his first court appearance. The affidavit said cell phone video also showed Christian stabbing the men and yelling epithets.
Some residents said President Donald Trump has caused those racist demons to stir again with his administration's travel ban, his promise to build a wall along the border with Mexico and his crackdown on illegal immigration.More news: Top Merkel aide rejects Donald Trump's call to renegotiate Paris climate deal

Legacy Emanuel Medical Center Julie Reed spokeswoman said Tuesday that the 21-year-old man was discharged. The third, Micha David-Cole Fletcher, a university student, had surgery for his stab wounds and is expected to recover.
Back in high school, he won a citywide Portland Public Schools poetry slam. The man, charged with fatally stabbing the two men and injuring a third who tried to shield young women from an anti-Muslim tirade, appeared to brag about the attacks as he sat in the back of a police patrol vehicle according to court documents.
Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche, a Reed College class of 2016 graduate, was one of the two people fatally stabbed while protecting the safety of others on the Portland, Oregon MAX train on Friday, May 26, 2017.
"The violent attacks in Portland on Friday are unacceptable".
According to court documents, Christian is facing two counts of aggravated murder, one count of attempted aggravated murder, one count of first degree assault, three counts of unlawful use of a weapon and two counts of intimidation. "It's not surprising that he would stand up to hate in such a way". He yelled statements including, "Go home, we need American here", "I don't care if you are ISIS", and "Free speech or die". "Our prayers are w/ them", Mr Trump said in a Twitter message before taking part in a wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery.
