The charges are all misdemeanor offenses.

Trudo’s booking information revealed that he was “released on own recognizance.”

Rioters in Portland reportedly launched explosives at a courthouse, tore down barriers, and assaulted officers over the weekend.

Trudo posted a series of now-deleted BLM-supporting Facebook posts before his arrest.

“F*** yeah! One way to hurt the bourgeoisie is to hurt their business. Closing down the ports is a terrific show of solidarity between labour and BLM,” he penned in one post.

“Protesters taking real action. Couldn’t be more proud. Burn it to the ground!” he wrote in response to an article about the Portland Police union building being set alight.

What is a senior software engineer’s salary at Google?

According to, senior software engineers at Google make an average of $210,000 a year.

At the highest end, they make $630,000, with $80,000 in cash bonus and $300,000 worth of stock grants, equating to over $1million.

Why are there riots happening in Portland?

Demonstrations have been taking place in the city since May 25 and the death of George Floyd.

President Trump has decried the demonstrations, and Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf blasted the protesters as “lawless anarchists” in a visit to the city.

The administration has enlisted federal agents, including the US Marshals Special Operations Group and an elite US Customs and Border Protection team based on the US-Mexico border, to protect federal property.

Before the aggressive language and action from federal officials, the unrest had frustrated Mayor Ted Wheeler and other local authorities, who had said a small cadre of violent activists were drowning out the message of peaceful protesters in the city.

But Wheeler said the federal presence in the city is now making a tense situation worse.
