Shockingly, the article opens by naming "protestors opposed to primate research" as among the random visitors to OHSU, (suggesting in the same sentence) who might lead to, "potentially more violence." That's weird, I thought it was these same peaceful protestors who wanted to END the violence already happening to thousands of animals BY OHSU? Maybe I just read it wrong?
Anyway, citizens might be wary to allow gun-toting OHSU Guards, considering some of the heavy-handed ways OHSU has reacted to visitors in the past. Please read this linked Indy story about what happened to one such visitor when she was invited by an OHSU office to come pick up some information about the animal research they do there. She was arrested; and the details about how OHSU behaved are downright bizarre.
Please consider attending this meeting tonight, especially if you have a story to tell about OHSU Security and how dangerous they could potentially be if they were given guns.
Meeting tonight, Thursday Oct 23rd!
6 to 8 p.m. at University Place, 310 S.W. Lincoln St. in Portland
