According Eugene, Oregon police, the victim noticed the suspect, later identified as Damien Leon Ramirez, 23, in the bed of his pickup truck outside of the Jewish fraternity house, Oregon ABC-affiliate KEZI reported. When the victim asked the suspect to get out of the truck, he reportedly kicked the truck and shouted antisemitic slurs.  He also reportedly made a comment about getting a firearm.

The Vice President of Student Life at the University of Oregon, Robin Holmes, issued a statement condemning the incident and praising the police department for their actions.

“The University of Oregon community is deeply disturbed by the crimes alleged to have been committed against Alpha Epsilon Pi. We do not tolerate hate crimes or threats founded in bias against any individuals or groups,” Holmes said.

    he must have been a really stupid one, because in 99.9999999 of the cases, the anti-Semite evil, is called the victim, all of a sudden.

    Framing Jews is in vogue again.
