i do not get it. why is a purportedly progressive city like portland tolerant of outrageous police behavior. as a teacher, this story deeply angers me.

Many people DO care about this! You must understand though, this incident of police terrorism was not even widely known to the public until just last week. I myself had only heard about this while listening to a program on KBOO. Trust me - people CARE!
