Video: Portland Copwatching 2 16 16 A man with NO knife

Man in Green {jacket} in this video, [after being released]
tells me somebody reported him ....
as a person that was threatening people in the park.
2/16/16/ SW Portland

 https://youtu.be/8TWpWvDoUwk [5:25 min video]

When in fact the man in the green jacket was "the victim" and was threatened by
"a man with a knife" in the South Park Blocks

The police (6 police cars) handcuff and talk with the victim ...
as is seen here in this recorded video
Minutes later the police let their (wrong) suspect go.
