anti-stasi

I've never seen a portland cop who wasn't ready to fight or argue. They were radicalized back in the 80's over throwing dead possums around black owned businesses and the 'dont choke em' smoke em' incident. Nothing has changed and even the current and past chief's can't manage them nor the mayor's office. It's time to start recalling council people every year if they refuse to shape up the cop shop. I'm for unions, but the PoPO union basically tells city hall what to do. I'm guessing the taxpayers will foot the bill over future lawsuits in regards to Sunday's incidents. Do folks really want a stasi operating here much longer? Look how militarized their uniforms have become lately. Suing the officers personally so they have to foot the bill might be one way to stop these bastards. just my 2 cents.
