Portland 'Cop Watcher' / Felon Car Thief Arrested On Federal Gun Charge

A so-called "cop watcher" who angered Portland police and prosecutors by showing up at their homes has been charged in federal court with being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Christopher Ryan Ponte, founder of Oregon Cop Block was arrested earlier this month for holding and using firearms in January despite a felony record.

Authorities cited Facebook posts made by Ponte that show him firing weapons including an AK-47 rifle in a forested area near Estacada.

The 36-year-old Ponte says he's being unfairly targeted by police because of his surveillance activity.

Ponte was convicted in 2016 of possession of a stolen vehicle.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A so-called "cop watcher" who angered Portland police and prosecutors by showing up at their homes has been charged in federal court with being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Christopher Ryan Ponte was arrested earlier this month for holding and using firearms in January despite a felony record.

Authorities cited Facebook posts made by Ponte that show him firing weapons including an AK-47 assault rifle in a forested area near Estacada.

The 36-year-old Ponte tells The Oregonian/OregonLive that he's being unfairly targeted by police because of his surveillance activity.

Ponte was convicted in 2016 of possession of a stolen vehicle.

He started a group called Oregon Cop Block and has visited the homes of former police Chief Mike Marshman, a police captain and a deputy district attorney.

Pro Police Posting Alert 28.Nov.2017 10:27

Another corporate media repost with an ad-hominem comment. Pro police author smears Copwatcher.
Obviously the author doesn't like copwatchers and so they are compelled to trump up anything negative with no mention or reporting of anything positive or from the other side of the spectrum. Mimicking the tired old corrupted mainstream press without a shred of reporting. This is a copy / paste pro police supporter who is generally marginalizing "all" police accountability and the activists-journalists who are doing the in the streets work.

To see some of the police accountability this "copwatcher" does check his YT link:  https://m.youtube.com/user/

[QUOTE] : "This is a copy / paste"


Yes, indeed and if you have problems with the reporting on a violent felon car thief having been jailed for a Federal firearms offense I suggest you take it up with :













1) the Oregonian
(who merely reported on **INDISPUTABLE FACT** i.e. the incarceration of a suspect under Federal charges by local law enforcement - yes this actually occurred In Our Community. It's called local journalism)




2) Multnomah County Sheriff's Department




3) Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives
( suspect was in violation of Federal law and this is the enforcement arm for those laws )
suspect also had prior felony conviction for automobile theft.

p.s. RE: "cop watchers" Great as long as they aren't violent felons
