Oregon Mugshot Bill & Identifying Radical Leftist

There's a new bill in Oregon which would prohibit police from releasing booking photos except for in specific circumstances and would require publish-for-pay publications to remove mugshots upon request. Juan Chavez of the Oregon Justice Resource Center said mugshots “results in trial by press release, not a judge or jury. And make no mistake, in this day and age, this is the digital version of a perp walk.”

I haven't put too much thought into this, though my gut reaction is that a little public shamming is probably a good way to dissuade radicals from being radicals. But the real point I'd like to make is that the mugshots have served as a means of countering the narrative that the Portland riots and vandalism weren't done by Antifa/leftist but instead by far right radicals. I've come across this argument numerous times. Those on the left who don't want to believe the facts, simply imply that the chaos in Portland is caused by boogaloo boys, proud boys or some other similar group. Though they provide little or no evidence in support of their claims, they want you to prove it wrong. 

After coming across this claim a number of times, I started adding arrest info to my Portland timeline. Though it doesn't prove group or ideological affiliation it does allow you to make inferences about those involved. For example, you wouldn't expect a lot of trans people to be part of a radical right wing group. The same with minorities, or gays/lesbians, or those who dress in goth, or look like hippies, etc. Also, people like Andy Ngo, who regularly releases arrest info on his twitter account, will also do a search of arrestees social media and find other evidence that they support a leftist ideology.  This of course isn't conclusive evidence, it's just more evidence that points in the obvious direction that those responsible for the chaos in Portland are radical leftist. More evidence for those not convinced by the leftist graffiti messages, chants, social media diatribes, online manifestos, etc.
