Knuckle Head: Portland: copwatching
an arrest on 10th ave.
I arrive when a man is being
stuffed into the police car. I was informed by a witness that said the "transit" police arrived and immediately called
out to the suspect as "Hey Knuckle Head".
After the arrest police sergeant, asks me for my name, what I saw and for
a copy of the video [or] a way to download it. I inform her that I am filming for police accountability, and when asked
for my name I would rather not give it up
ACCOUNTABILITY GROUP DENIED MEETING WITH MAYOR
Portland Copwatch, an
organization promoting police accountability since 1992, has been denied a
meeting with Mayor/Police Commissioner Charlie Hales after three months of
back-and-forth with his scheduler and police liaison. Although the group has
met with every Chief and Mayor since its creation, the current Commissioner
seems to be shutting out the organization, after meeting with them a year
ago on July 22, 2013.

Door on men's restroom in Portland park
minute video) A
report by Joe Anybody to the HRC (Human Rights Commission) in Portland
regarding the NO DOOR on a bathroom in the park. For over 10 years there
has been no door on park bathroom in Portland Oregon at Lownsdale Park. My
first request to (both) Amanda Fritz and to the City Parks was blown off with a
shallow reply back that was unacceptable and shameful so I have now informed
the Equity / HRC department in this short clip and by email.
In September 2014 Facebook kicked me off their website for using the

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear an
appeal of a controversial Illinois law prohibiting people from recording police officers on the job. By passing on the issue, the justices left in place a federal appeals court ruling that found that
the state's anti-eavesdropping law violates free-speech rights when used against people who audiotape police officers.....(more)
