Witnesses testified Monday, Feb. 3, 2020, in the double murder trial of Jeremy Christian at the Multnomah County Courthouse in Portland, Oregon. Jeremy Christian is accused of stabbing Taliesin Namkai-Meche and Ricky Best to death on a MAX train and seriously injuring Micah Fletcher on May 26, 2017.
Also Monday in the fifth day of Christian’s trial, prosecutors played 37 minutes of video of Christian ranting while in custody during a medical check-up and his ride to the Multnomah County Detention Center in the back of a police cruiser.
Christian shouted “Just stabbed a bunch of (expletives) in the neck”; “Tell me what the (expletive) to do in my country ... you get stabbed in the neck" and “That’s right, this is a hate crime. ... Hope they all die."
