Vicky Taft at PJ Media finds Portland Activists Survey Themselves and Conclude Un-Woke Cops Are to Blame for Their Riots
Results of a survey taken after the Portland riots of 2020 and 2021 have just been tallied by a cop-watch organization and the conclusion is that un-woke cops – not actual rioters, protesters, rabid communists, and looters – are the reason they were so bad. Mayor Ted Wheeler says he’ll treat the survey seriously and the city council will consider adopting its suggestions.
Yeah, about that survey …
KOIN TV reports that the suggestions come, in part, from a survey by community activists in a cop-watch group called “Portland United Against Hate.” Activists “used a crowdsourcing tool called “ReportHatePDX to gather ‘first-hand testimonials from citizens engaged in First Amendment activities over the summer of 2020.’”
Among the more alarming suggestions was to “assess” the current crop of cops and any new hires for “harmful biases.” The report asserts, “This bias assessment procedure should go beyond what is already available through the Employee Information System. It is essential that PPB have a clear, consistent, zero-tolerance policy to detect and address harmful biases held by members of the force.”
Perhaps Portland and a few Willamette Valley cities chould split off from the rest of Oregon (leaving them with 2 Republican Senators presumably), and form their own state. They could call it Portlandia.
Linked at the Daley Gator in Yeah, parts of Oregon might be a lost cause at this point.
