NW Alliance Portal   We need police accountability!
http://www.ThePortlandAlliance.org/policeaccountability



       


The murders of Aaron Campbell, Keaton Otis,  and James Chasse, Jr. have never been resolved. None of the officers who broke the law and violated Police Department Procedures have been charged, tried,or prosecuted for these crimes. We, the citizens of Portland, Oregon have paid millions for the crimes committed by PDX police officers, yet none of these officers have been disciplined. They continue to serve in spite of their crimes. The shootings of James Jahar Perez and Kendra James may have been forgotten by some, but we have yet to see accountability or justice.  This must change. We deserve an explanation from our council and some discipline and more responsible leadership in our Police Bureau.   


Police accountability matters. But in Portland, Oregon, responsible officers who try to protect and serve the community are too-often betrayed by rogue cops who seem more interested in protecting and serving themselves than in doing the jobs they were hired to do.

"Community members aren't the only ones who have little faith in the Portland Police Bureau's discipline system.

More than half, or 62 percent, of Portland police officers surveyed in the spring believe the bureau's discipline process is unfair. A majority - or 86 percent -- don't believe the bureau holds officers accountable when they're doing a consistently poor job.

...Nearly half of officers who responded, or 47 percent, said they felt the bureau's use-of-force policy was difficult to understand.

"If officers do not understand the policy there is a greater risk that they might violate the policy without even knowing it,'' the report said. "Officers must be able to understand the policy to consistently adhere to it.''

Portland
Copwatch - a project of Peace and Justice Works
"sloppy police work" or murder....


Mark Chasse, brother of James Chasse, Jr.: "The police's power to use deadly force against its citizens is an awesome power and should carry an enormous responsibility. In Portland, however, the police still do not even receive employment reviews, much less any other real oversight. I am saddened but not completely surprised that the Portland Police have continued to fight against any responsibility for what they did to my brother, this arbitration being only the most recent example. Apparently, two weeks' leave was too severe of a punishment for beating my brother to death and ensuring that he did not get proper medical treatment for the gruesome injuries they inflicted on him. "It is unlikely that the Portland Police will ever regain the respect of the citizens of Portland until they stop fighting all efforts at real police accountability. I hope that this longstanding Bureau/union policy will change, as it would be in everybody's interests." For more information contact Dr. LeRoy Haynes at 503-287-0261.

There is no accountability in Portland, Oregon.  Those who murder James were cited for "bravery" and the murder they committed was ignored. These officers remain on the force in spite of multiple complaints and incidents.
