Dear dreadlocked dude working at the tattoo shop on Hawthorne: why did you stop us from holding the violent drunk? He had been sexually harassing women up and down the street, and finally smashed the window at the Thai place when he didn't get the free food he wanted. That guy needed help and he needed to be accountable. Then when the cops showed up you had to put on a big show in your shop. I recommend reading up on ORS 133.225 and 161.255- what we were doing was totally fine. This wasn't a case of the "man" keeping anybody down- we were just trying to get justice. Get a fucking grip.
You Were Not Sticking it to the Man!
