The anonymous message board 4chan appears to have, once again, beat the media to identifying a violent rioter.

On Saturday night, a Portland Black Lives Matter militant shot and killed a member of the pro-Trump group Patriot Prayer.
Within minutes of the shooting, 4chan users got to work, and within hours… they had a name.
The message board quickly claimed that the shooter is Michael Reinoehl, 48, of Portland.
Rioters in the city cheered and celebrated the murder by one of their peers.
For several hours, rumors were circulating online that a rioter had been killed by a supporter of President Donald Trump, but there was a big celebration when they found out it was actually the other way around.
“Everybody, I just got word. The person who died was a Patriot Prayer person,” the Black Lives Matter leader tells the excited crowd. “He was a f***ing Nazi. Our community held its own and took out the trash. I’m not going to shed any tears over a Nazi dying!”
