There has been another press release, saying that the man police shot had a "razor knife". Some in Portland (and there was at least one post on here to the effect) will say that the shooting was "justified". We as a community need to push the conversations about why some people can deescalate situations like this and that because cops are armed, their response is to shoot.
We need to keep this from getting brushed aside as 'justified' or 'part of the dirty work of keeping the public safe' BULLSHIT. We need to push.
