If you are able to get to the scene and speak to witnesses, it would be a good time to do so. Because, as we know from past experiences with the PPB, no matter what actually happened, it will be only a matter of time before we "learn" from the corporate media that the victim "had drugs on him," and that he posed some sort of threat to officers. The best thing we can do to protect each other from the abuses of Portland police officers is to watch each others' backs. Copwatching on a citywide scale, especially in areas where poor people and people of color live, as they seem to be particular targets. In a case like this, where it's too late to prevent the use of lethal force, the very least we can do is to find out what really happened before it's all covered up and diffused through secret grand juries and backroom bargains.
It may be that officers had no choice this time. Maybe. But forgive me if I'm skeptical. I would prefer to know what really happened from imcistas than to hear the same tired line from the corporate police state.
