Portland Chief Says Things Will Be Different…Next Time

Available at amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com

Portland Chief, Danielle Outlaw (cool name, crumby chief) said recently that the next time there’s a big demonstration it won’t be like last time. Yeah sure.

Chief Outlaw, who surrendered the streets of Portland to protesters.

A big protest about something or another is planned for Aug, 17th. The chief said the cops will be there, in riot gear if necessary. She even asked the surrounding counties for help…no dice. The Counties backed out of a mutual aide agreement with the Portland PD.

She says they are undermanned and asked the Govenator to alert the national Guard.

She’s right about one thing, the’re undermanned. Why you ask? Good question. Portland cops are bookin’ outta there as fast as possible. Pay and especially, working conditions, are driving good, experienced cops to other agencies.

Let’s hope we don’t see a repeat of the June 29th follies where people were getting viciously assaulted …and there wasn’t a cop in sight.
