Christian, 35, yelled as he walked into his arraignment hearing, local NBC outlet KGW reported."He told us to go back to Saudi Arabia, and he told us we shouldn't be here, to get out of his country", Mangum said.
"Free speech or die, Portland". He did not enter a plea, and the judge moved on to hear other cases.
Once behind the glass barriers of the defendants' area, he declared: "Death to the enemies of America".
"I just kept telling him, 'You're not alone".
Joseph was arrested but he continued his rant as he sat in the back of a police vehicle and said: "I stabbed the two (expletives) in the neck and I'm happy now".
Micah Fletcher, the 21-year-old seriously injured in Friday's knife attack aboard a light rail train, urged others to rally around the harassed teens - blasting Rip City's "white savior complex" in a passionate Facebook video.
A grand jury is expected to consider additional charges against the suspect, whose next court appearance will be on June 7.
A man and woman hold hands as they comfort each other outside the courtroom where Jeremy Christian was arraigned in Portland, Ore, Tuesday, May 30, 2017.
Public defenders have been appointed for Christian. Fletcher told investigators Christian "threatened to decapitate people". According to an affidavit of probable cause, while in the police vehicle, Christian allegedly said that he was a "patriot" and admitted to the crime and saying, "that's what liberalism gets you".
Calling Fletcher, the lone survivor of the three Good Samaritans who intervened in the attack, "one of the angels that saved my daughter's life", Destinee's mother, Dyjuana Hudson, posted images of the emotional meeting on Facebook.
Fletcher also wanted the teenagers involved to know that "none of this is in any way their fault and that the world is a very cruel place sometimes". A GoFundMe account to pay for his medical bills showed a picture of him on a hospital bed with the visible neck wound that read: "Thank you for all the support".
They are also discussing an endowment or scholarship program in honor of Namkai-Meche, a recent college graduate, whose "enthusiasm was infectious" according to his family. Court documents say Christian shoved Fletcher in the chest and appeared to pull a folding knife from his pocket and hide it in his hand.
"I want the Muslim community to know that they have a home here in Portland and are loved", Fletcher-Cole said. Namkai Meche, who graduated from Reed College previous year, died later at a hospital and college student Fletcher, was hospitalized with serious injuries but was expected to recover. Authorities on Saturday, May 27, 2017 identified Christian as the suspect in the fatal stabbing of two people on a Portland light-rail train in Oregon. Videos have surfaced showing Christian shouting at people, at one point saying the N-word, as police officers separated him.
