Sincerely wanted to attend this one and show support for Kaady family and friends over the senseless loss of their son, Fouad to cowardly police violence. Arrived a little late to find out that the protest was being held in a little postage stamp sized park with no parking available close by.
Went down the street two blocks to turn around in a small industrial park and found Oregon City police hid out behind these buildings, poised to strike. Returned back to area of park and tuned towards sheriff's office to find that all parking lots along this two block county strip were barricaded off. This led to a dead end in front of the road leading to sheroff's department which was being guarded by about six heavily armed and nervous deputies who ran up to my car to see what I was doing. I rolled my window down a little and said "just turning around" and departed. Noticed cops hiding in unmarked cars with high powered equipment around a half mile perimeter and decided this wasn't my cup of tea.
As much as I wanted to hear people speak and express feelings, this was just too creepy for me. These guys have already proven that they are violent, dangerous,fear freaks that will shoot first and justify later and it was quite clear what the mind set here was; "Fuck with us and we'll get you!"
looked like fifty to seventy five people present, and I don't like these odds. They say you get the government you deserve, and I guess to some extent that is true. If fivty to a hundred people is all the more who care about the outrageous actions of police in the murder of Fouad Kaady, I guess we will have to wait for a few more cops to commit murder to raise public awareness and get enough citizens together to take back our freedom and justice and win back the representation we pay for. Don't forget, your dollars paid for all the cop presence at this protest today and it wasn't aimed at public safety or protection. There was no public in miles of here to protect. This was strictly a show of force and an attempt to intimidate by the cowardly Craig Roberts, paid for with your tax dollars. Craig Roberts is still a sissy coward and a pathetically corrupt man. As long as we allow him to remain in office we will have injustice, brutality, murder, and perjury aimed at covering up these crimes.
