“Getting to the root of it”: Emmalynn Lorraine Garrett has lost her bid to have YouTube remove the video of her arrest. [police photo from July 2011 arrest.]

DATELINE PORTLAND OREGON – FEBRUARY 6, 2013:  Daylightdisinfectentant has won a battle to keep one of the Channel’s most popular videos up after a highly visible Occupier tried to have it taken down.  In the video “Occu-Mob Goes Berserk!,” Occupy Portland is caught on tape breaking storefront windows, vandalizing cars, upending trash cans and invoking terror in a Southeast Portland neighborhood.  It was filmed about a year ago.  Emmalyn Lorraine Garrett, a “Public Relations Team Member” for Occupy Portland, filed a privacy complaint with YouTube to have the video removed.  Occupy endorsed violent Black bloc tactics in the event announcements.  The video is one which caught the attention of Conservative Media icon Andrew Breitbart for inclusion in his highly successful documentary Occupy Unmasked.

Garrett filed online to have the video removed after she was caught on tape being arrested during the night of terror.  Shortly after the video was taken, Garrett was carted off to jail and charged with both Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree and Interfering with a Police Officer.  Her arrest is clearly shown in the video.

On the night of the violent free-for-all, Garrett provided her name twice on a public street, and even spelled it out.  She then provided her version of the circumstances of her arrest.  Here’s the transcript:

  • Garrett:  “Emmalynn Garrett, <spelling> E-M-M-A-L-Y-N-N G-A-R-R-E-T-T, <repeats> Emalynn Garrett”
  • Reporter:  “What did you do Emmalynn?”
  • Garrett:  “I was standing on the sidewalk.  They grabbed me and threw me into the street.”

Shortly after this Garrett was tossed into the back of the paddy wagon and carted off to jail.  She’s was accompanied by another high profile Occupier Nefi Martinez-Bravo.  After the van is closed up, one can clearly hear the sounds of the perps repeatedly and violently kicking the insides of the van.

Garrett Composite NumberedOccupy Portland’s Night of Terror:  (1) 6:12 PM Occu-Mob gathers Col. Summers Park. (2) 6:29 PM Windows broken Genoa Restaurant on Belmont (3) 6:36 PM BMW windows broken on Stark (4) 6:52 PM Garrett does the perp walk, tossed into paddy wagon.

RUN-INS WITH THE LAW

Garrett is no stranger to law enforcement.  While we don’t have information on actual convictions, we do have information of her arrests courtesy of the mainstream media and police press releases.  Links are provided.

And while not an arrest this incident fits in well within the pattern.

  • June 25, 2012 – An event which involved flag pole climbing at the State House, and blocking state offices where six people were arrested and taken to Marion County Jail (none of them Garrett).  However, she is heavily involved in the event and gives an interview.

This last event definitively links Garrett with Earth First which is an eco-terrorism organization associated with the dangerous practice of tree spiking.  According to Wikipedia:

“Tree spiking is a common tactic that was first used by members of
EarthFirst! in 1984. Tree spiking involves hammering a small spike into the trunk of a tree that may be logged with the intention of damaging the chainsaw or mill blades and may seriously injure the logger.”

INTIMIDATION ATTEMPTS

Both Daylight Disinfectant and the blog 5440fight.com received emails from someone purporting to be Garrett trying to get the video taken down and threatening legal action.

Emmalyn Garrett Threatening Message Tight Crop

Writes Garrett:

“Remove my name and likeness from ‘Occumob Goes Berzerk’ video.  Use of my full legal name and likeness constitutes a Violation of Privacy by YouTube standards… If you do not, I will pursue this further with the YouTube complaint process and if needed legal action.”  

YouTube’s policy takes into account whether a video is newsworthy and whether it is in the public interest to keep it up.  This undoubtedly factored into their decision not to take it down.  [In defense of our First Amendment Rights, we do not respond well to paper tiger threats and have no intention of ever taking it down.]

In addition to the eco-terrorism association, Garrett is a part of Occupy which, despite the sugar coating by the mainstream media, was and remains a violent movement.  Supported by unions and Fat-Cat Liberals like Michael Moore, they are responsible at last count for 4000 arrests including violent assaults and rapes which they attempted to cover up.  Occupy cost cites across the US well over $13 Million.  Their activities are documented on our YouTube channel DaylightDisinfectant which now has well in excess of a half million views, and in the documentary “Occupy Unmasked” now available on Netflix and amazon Prime.   We tried to contact Ms. Garrett for this story but she did not return our messages and requests to contact us by phone.

  2. please someone get her some shampoo…that hair is just so wrong. i hope they searched it… might be some other occupiers hiding out in there.

    • i think that was the “no poo look.” 😉 that photo was in all probability her mugshot from July 28th 2011. she has not contacted me so i can’t ask. i’m guessing she had spent a night in the hoosegow. thank you for your comment!

  3. Make her WORK COMMUNITY SERVICE and OTHER PAYING JOBS to PAY FOR ALL THE DAMAGE SHE DID….SHE CAN OCCUPY A JOB FOR HER DESTRUCTION OF PROPERTY!!

    • sounds like a good idea. i actually do not know the outcomes of the arrests but i imagine if she was found guilty of any of these crimes community service would be in the plan. i have reached out to her and if she contacts me i will ask. thank you for your thoughtful comment.

  4. Karma finally swings the pendulum the other way, and falcon-punches those that deserve it most.
    All I can say is “MORE, PLEASE”.

    Thank you Daylight!

    • all i can say is that no one in portland is doing journalism with a conservative perspective. if we citizen journalists are intimidated into keeping our mouths shut, and we lose our first amendment rights, then this country ceases to be a two-party country. it becomes a one party country. and we all know what that means. well i won’t shut up. and if you try and shut me up: you are going to get it back in spades. thank you for your thoughtful comment karen.
