Portland police training on protests ends with slide showing mock prayer for ‘dirty hippy,’ prompts investigation

I'm outraged by this on so many levels. This is on the heels of the PPD leaking a false report about our first black woman city council member.

Wow, that's one heck of an article. Thanks for sharing it. I found this to also be interesting:

One of the police PowerPoint training slides released Friday shows a woman holding a sign, shouting something, standing still in front of a line of riot-clad officers, and identifies the encounter, as “Active resistance.”

Earlier in the article it says this:

As a result of the lawsuit, a federal judge last year restricted officers with the Police Bureau’s Rapid Response Team from using crowd-control launchers during protests until they received further training and “can recognize and articulate a threat without speculating” and understood the difference between active aggression and passive resistance.

I think this problem of lack of police understanding the difference between active aggression and passive resistance is very deep and broad. I think for a lot of officers "active aggression" means not complying with their orders immediately and completely - there really is not much, if any, recognition of someone doing passive resistance.

You can push the police state underground, but it's never going away. That's where the Defunders get their strength. While it's an unpopular sentiment - and even more unpopular idea politically - the rationale for defunding is clear because this kind of police behavior just isn't going away by itself.

Leadership, union, rank and file
Flush them.

Wow. Yeah. That is unconscionable. Thugs at the helm, and lots of other places too.

PPD knows it's easier to deliver a beat-down after you've demonized someone.

“The last of the 110 slides in the presentation showed the “Prayer of the Alt Knight | Based Stickman” meme. “Based Stickman” refers to Kyle Chapman, the founder of a group called the Fraternal Order of Alt-Knights that formed as the “tactical defense arm” of the Proud Boys, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. He’s a far-right Trump supporter and street brawler who earned the nickname “Based Stickman” after a video showed him hitting an antifascist activist with a wooden sign post in Berkeley in 2017.”



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Portland is one of the most liberal leaning cities in the country. If it’s happening here, well. This is far from the first time. I’ve witnessed PPD’s unwarranted brutality first hand more than once. They’ve been giving the Proud Boys a pass and cops have been caught tipping them off.
