Sometimes you try to give folks the benefit of the doubt - for just being utterly fucking clueless. I NO longer give that benefit to Vera Katz. She has just announced May 9th as an Official Oregon holiday (whatever that means) as Police Officer Day. For all the fallen police officers that have died in the line of duty. Which is fine - and it's reasonable. But could her timing be any worse? Her timing is not reasonable. With the fatal shooting of Kendra James - that is MORE than questionable - how could she pull this shit now?
I just got a call from my ex-mother-in-law - who is African American - she was crying - she couldn't believe what slap in the face it is to the black community at this time. Vera could have waited for this special holiday - but it's almost as if - she is purposely trying to be hurtful - trying to rub salt in open wounds.
The Police Chief and the bitch he rode in on - NEED TO GO.
