Juggling the Numbers: PDX Police Response to Gangs, the Mentally Ill and everyday people.

“Police attend neighborhood watch events to instill fear of ‘others’ among white property owners. Suspicion inhibits community cohesion in a time of population shift. I’ve witnessed neighbors beginning to pause, to observe the recent increase of police stops on people of color.” ~Roger David Hardesty

“Unmitigated police misbehavior will continue to reflect on competent and responsible officers who do care about the rule of law and safe communities.  Instead of armed extra-legal storm troopers, we need effective public servants who can create safe and secure streets without precipitously resorting to violence and acrimony. We need peace officers who can live up to the name and do us proud.”
~ Tim Flanagan
