As first reported by KOIN 6 News reporter Jashayla Pettigrew, Kenneth George Harold was a member of the U.S. Army stationed at Joint Base Lewis-McChord when he allegedly committed his crimes between February and April, 2021. He left the military in May 2022.
Harold is charged with interstate riot and is accused of communicating with others or traveling to Portland on more than one occasion to incite violence and damage property, Pettigrew reported on Tuesday, Feb. 14, 2023. Among other things, Harold is accused of using a “tool” to smash through the windows of local buildings, including those at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland.
According to the KOIN 6 News report, court documents show that on Feb. 17, 2021, Harold sent a text message in which he suggested that he and the recipient break windows and distract law enforcement “again.” About a week later, Harold had a similar interaction with another contact.
“The cool thing about Portland is that there are a ton of people that show up so it’s easier to perform the type of direct action I like to do like throwing smoke bombs so that the pigs can [sic] see us or I would cut loose with a mortar fir [sic] sure,” the person typed in their message.
Harold replied that it seemed easier to conduct those actions in Portland than it did in Seattle.
