They called him a "nigger." They pulled knives. He showed, but did not pull, his legal pistol. He gets arrested. Of course.

I guess he should have let himself be stabbed and cut. Now THAT would have satisfied the Portland police, I'm sure

PORTLAND — A man who displayed a handgun at Occupy Portland’s downtown encampment after a dispute with protesters has been arrested, police said in a statement Thursday.
The argument took place Wednesday afternoon when 32-year-old Jason C. Parker was challenged verbally by protesters after filming tents, police said. One of the protesters used a racial epithet against Parker, who is black, police said.
A witness said Parker was filming inside tents without permission and displayed the gun more than once after protesters at the camp displayed knives.
“He pulled his shirt halfway up and showed me he had a piece,” said Jason Kersten, who works in the camp’s security group. “This is a peaceful protest. You don’t bring a gun.”
Kersten acknowledged that someone used a racial epithet.
“The N-word was used by some people in the camp,” he said.
Parker had a license to carry the concealed handgun. He was charged with second-degree disorderly conduct.
Protesters have occupied two square blocks in the city’s downtown business district for several weeks
