Michael Reinoehl Bio, Wiki
Michael Reinoehl is an Oregon man who attended Black Lives Matter demonstrations and railed against President Donald Trump and the police in expletive-laden posts. He was named by a major Oregon newspaper as the man under investigation in the shooting death of Aaron Danielson, the man who was shot and killed in Portland after a pro-Trump caravan broke down.
The victim was affiliated with a conservative group called Patriot Prayer, which has engaged in counter-demonstrations and he was helping the caravan with security.
There’s a lot of confusion about the victim’s name. One video shows a person rushing up to Danielson, referring to him as “Jay.” A lot of confusion erupted on social media over the different names; however, he’s referred to as Aaron “Jay” Danielson in an approved GoFundMe and as Jay by a friend in a graphic video at the scene.
Some on social media claimed he used a pseudonym to protect himself from Antifa, although that was not confirmed. Confusing matters, people are sharing the criminal history of a different Jay Bishop who isn’t the man who died. An apparently fake GoFundMe account in Jay Bishop’s name was taken down, confusing people more. Although it’s clear he did go by the name Jay at times, it’s not clear whether he ever used Bishop.
Michael Reinoehl is a BLM Activist as per his Social Media Posts
Oregon Live gave the suspect’s name as Michael Forest Reinoehl. Eight weeks ago, Reinoehl wrote on Instagram, “Happy black lives matters day!!! #blacklivesmatter #breonnataylor #anewnation.” On July 4, he shared a video of a demonstration on Instagram, writing, “F*** Donald Trump #blacklivesmatter #breonnataylor #anewnation.”
The video shows people chanting “F*** Donald Trump.” It also contains repeated use of the N-word, although it’s not clear who is saying it. Another photo on Instagram showed a demonstrator on a statute that had the words “No Gestapo” painted on it. “😂 he replaced the statue,” wrote Reinoehl.
In one Instagram photo, Reinoehl, 48, showed off a “battle scar” from a demonstration. Multiple photos show protests and riots. “Juneteenth Portland Oregon #f***thepolice #blaklivesmatter,” he wrote with one picture. “Hands up don’t shoot!” he wrote with another. “Elmo says make sure you stock up on condoms cuz it’s time to f*** the system,” said another post.
Graphic photos emerged of Danielson’s body lying at the scene
Graphic photos emerged of Danielson’s body lying at the scene. There are very disturbing pictures of Danielson doing rounds on social media. A video, which is also disturbing, appears to show a person open fire at close range as Danielson walked down the street and another shows people tending to Danielson. You can watch them below, but they are very graphic.

Michael Reinoehl Previous Runs in the Wrong Side of the Law
The Baker City Herald reported in a June 2020 story that Reinohl, of Clackamas “and his teenage son were both arrested after an Oregon State Police trooper saw the pair apparently racing at over 100 mph in separate vehicles on Interstate 84 near North Powder.”
The article says Reinoehl is 48 and indicated he was “charged with driving under the influence of a controlled substance, recklessly endangering another person and unlawful possession of a firearm. He was also cited for driving while uninsured, driving while suspended, and for speeding.”
The story says an officer found “a loaded, concealed Glock pistol for which Reinoehl did not have a concealed handgun license.”
His teenage son faced charges of “driving under the influence of marijuana and unlawful possession of a firearm,” the newspaper reported.
Danielson’s Shooting Attracted the President’s Attention
The shooting death of Aaron “Jay” Danielson drew the president’s attention. “Rest In Peace Jay!” President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter on August 30. He retweeted a post by a Trump supporter that read,
‘This is Jay Bishop.
He was a good American that loved his country and Backed the Blue.
Flag of United States
He was murdered in Portland by ANTIFA.
Jay, we will never forget you.
Rest In Peace my friend.’
