DOJ USA v. Portland Police 2016: Mark Kruger & larry O'Dea & Charlie Hales under fire

Portland Police get slammed for sending Mark Kruger in to attack police accountability systems

Following the CRC, that Captain filed a hostile-work-environment complaint against the IPR Director based on the water-throwing incident. The IPR Director did not throw the water.

Thus, the Captain continues to undermine public confidence in PPB and makes every officer's job less safe.
