It is past the time to take some form of legal and/or subversive action against the City of Portland and their aggressive rude police bureau that continues to practice illegal discriminatory tactics against Critical Mass. The Halloween ride was just the culmination of the months of oppressive police tactics that often have no judicial support. Last night there were the standard trumped up citations, unwarrented physical 'attacks' and arrests, disruptions to the bystanding society at the expense of fun loving cyclists celebrating their legal right to ride en mass, and an arrogant over-reactive motorcyle crazed police wing.
Let us all find a forum to organize and put some fire under the HEAT and get them back to 'Serving and Protecting the citizens whom pay their salaries' and STOP this monthly illegal and unwarrented harrassment!! (You can gain access to police dispatch calls......and I bet VERY FEW every are complaining about Critical Mass)
I will assist in this cause. I will schedule a meeting with Commander Mike Garvey; Traffic Commander and Mike Hess of the Independent Police Review after the elections are over and a new mayor and councilman are elected. Other tactics are needed from legal, press support, subversive yippy motivated pranks, resistence, etc....Peace and Resist yttocs
