I mean...

I thought the cops were part of the 99%? What's going on here? Are you sure they were arresting them and not just taxi-ing them back to their safe warm homes? There must be some mistake here. The cops are on our side. You, know: the 99%.

Thats what I asked them last night as I was filming 30.Oct.2011 14:42

Domestic animal owners' responsibilities 30.Oct.2011 15:46

Will the city administration, as the final owner of the police gang's animals, do what citizen animal owners are obliged to responsibly do in cleaning up after their animals?

All police animal outings should be followed up with surge of city sanitary crews, as appropriate, to remove the horse shit and neutralize the horse piss.

Are there any other cases of municipal actions, after city maintenance and construction projects, for instance, whereby the area of that activity isn't cleaned-up?

On these two scores, then:

1. urban animal owners cleaning up after their animals and;

2. effects, as either or both sanitary and safety matters, proceeding from city projects (public works, policing, et al) debris and temporary hazards removed and normal safety and health conditions restored --

the City of Portland's current policy would seem to be grossly and flagrantly irresponsible in not cleaning up after the PPB mounties frolics.

When will the city administration remedy this 19th century, "open range" laissez-faire relic exemption for itself from its health and safety code?

Picking up the horse crap is just as doable for city sanitation forces as it is for citizen pet owners, who are required under penalty of law to scoop-up or otherwise remove the fecal deposits that their animals leave in outdoor public spaces.
