:: sleepless in Portland ::
Bravo on Episode Two, an effective video.
I think we might get some jail terms for certain cops pretty soon. Worth prosecuting.
The miss-assumption of the propertied that they own the public lands and infrastructure, and that the police work for them, against others also entitled to public access, is here acted out in a kind of high stakes street theater. Private wealth versus democracy.
As soon as the police side with private wealth against an entitled public, they become goons and thugs, regardless of outward uniform.
The City of Portland is not getting the police protection it deserves, so long as the mayor behaves like a hostage to the Business Plot er Alliance.
