Even before their names were released, one word repeatedly came up to describe the men who were killed in a
stabbing Friday on a light-rail train in Portland, Ore.: heroes.
They had tried to intervene, police said, after another passenger began “ranting and raving” and shouting anti-Muslim insults at two young women.
That’s when the ranting passenger turned his anger toward those who sought to calm him down. He fatally stabbed two men and seriously injured a third, police said, before fleeing the train on foot.
“Two men lost their lives and another was injured for doing the right thing, standing up for people they didn’t know against hatred,” Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler said in a statement Saturday. “Their actions were brave and selfless, and should serve as an example and inspiration to us all. They are heroes.”
