Yup, they’re still at it. That’s right, the ever so offended by cops, voted to disband the Gun Violence Reduction Team. A group of seasoned and respected Detectives that knew todays shooter is tomorrows victim.
Disbanded because many of the investigations involved black suspect’s. Since portland is only 6% black this is nothing by pure harassment. Never mind that 52% of murder victims and defendants are black.
If you’re the parent, brother, sister etc. of a murder victim you really don’t care about the race…you just want justice. Better yet, not to have the cops visit you at 2:00AM to give you some really bad news.
This is where the GVRT comes into play. They know the streets. They know the dark, underbelly of society where evil lurks. They keep guns out of the hands of violent criminals. Bye the way, they have bonded with social workers and other resources.
One street cat said…” They’re the departments CIA. They knew what’s gonna happen before it happens. They prevented a lotta murders.” Not anymore. Brilliant Portland. just brilliant!
STAY SAFE, BUCKLE UP, WEAR YOUR VEST ANMD TURN ON YOUR CAMERA!
