Accountability--What?

the 5 shits are at it again
we must come together
we must come together
NOTICE---NOTICE---NOTICE City Hall, Wednesday 3-3:30 PM 10/22/2014
Please put the following out for all to see, it is important:
The City Council will vote on giving permission to the City Attorney to appeal the DOJ and city agreement concerning our corrupt and militarized police force. The City under Mayor Hales will spend your hard earned money on appealing a request that Federal Judge Simon has made to appear before him to give him an update on the implementation of the settlement. They, (the city) want the judge out of the picture to make sure he has nothing to say to anyone about anything. They will lose this appeal and your money will once again go down the drain. We do not have enough money to get our 3,000 humans off the streets, but can waste money here? We cannot spend more money to secure mentally ill people but we can waste money here? We have children begging for funds, but no! We must spend the money here? Individuals For Justice will be there, others will come but you who sit on your hands waiting for us to do the job must show up!!!! They must fear us and know we are non-violent but pissed.

Arrogants and Corruption 23.Oct.2014 10:04

Lone Vet

"We Know Better... ... ... .." Commissioner fritz

The first indicator that something was amiss, the city council only scheduled 15 minutes for discussion of the resolution to appeal a controversial decision by our challenged city attorney's office, Item 1110. Fifteen minutes? They allowed an appeal of land building by a neighborhood association 90 minutes and it went on for 120; we all waited. About 4:00PM, 30 minutes late on a time certain item it started and it was obvious that the fix was in. Mayor hales and comm. fritz were co-sponsors of the appeal of Judge Simon's authority, having the audacity to request that the four parties come before him once a year to tell him how things are going. He, the judge, made it very clear over and over at the hearing last year he did not have the ability to order the city to do anything, he could only decide if the settlement agreement was fair, and with this provision, decided to accept the agreement. He basically said, if you want my ok you must come and let me know how you are all doing, seems reasonable to me, and 21 other groups who told the council not to appeal and waste more time and money, just get to the business of fixing our police department. The four, (Fish was out and about) all voted for the notice of appeal. That should not be the end, they can, as they did in a case not long ago, file the notice and after thinking about it or hearing from us, did the right thing. In the present case they should withdraw the appeal. They are going to lose this appeal and anger the 9th Circuit and end up spending lots of your money and losing precious time in the process. Once again these 5 s--ts give the middle finger to the people of Portland, the conservatives are laughing at us, and the courts will soon be laughing too. This does not show a progressive city, it shows a group of people who are now so arrogant they cannot see their own corruption. The Portland Police must be drastically changed and you will not do it with 5 white shits sitting up there, get it together folks and run all three out of office next election in 2016. There are 3 of the council positions open, a majority and if you want, you can take control of the city council and make it accountable to the people; will you? Anybody serving on a Commission, committee, or advisory body of any sort should resign, stop trying to make it better with this group of politicians, you can't! You should be on the phone calling and telling the 5 people on the council and the city attorney that this was a stupid decision and you will do what you can to see that all 3 running in 2016 visit the unemployment lines.
