8pm March Against Another Police Killing Tonight Dont give up the fight!

Get up, Stand up. Dont give up the give up the fight! March tonight, 8pm @ Peninsula Park; N Kerby Ave. Between Rosa Parks Way and N Ainsworth st. Bring your pots and pans and anyother musical or noise making devices.
The cops kill again as a 24 year old "white" "man" was murdered after being tasered and pepper sprayed multiple times this morning just 25 miles outside of Portland. It seems likely that the person was experiencing a mental health crisis as the pigs claim he was partially clothed and displaying erratic and what they are calling violent behavior. He was also doing such things in a rich neighborhood! The cornelius pigs initially on the scene responded to the person with a taser and "wrestling" him. They then called for back up and Forest Grove pigs proceeded to tase the person again also using pepper spray and cuffing the man. In this brutalized state the person stopped breathing and was soon pronounced dead in custody
