Re: “In Other News

I admire any attempts to improve the safety on Foster; I lived in the neighborhood for years, and my nephews live there still, thankfully. But I gotta tell you, you can light up the pedestrian crossings like Barbie-house-disco-balls and it will not change the safety on that stretch one fucking iota until ONE, the speed limit is substantially reduced, and TWO, there is CONSISTENT ENFORCEMENT by a dedicated patrol system. We don't now have, and never have had, the level of enforcement of the *existing* traffic laws in our neighborhood, and the reason for this is, that is where the poor people live. And the attitude of police is, screw the poor people. Seriously.

Re: “In Other News

There are so many factual errors in this story it's difficult to know where to start, but here goes. First, the event Sunday wasn't a protest, but an act of land liberation. Second, it wasn't sponsored by PLOC (nor was PLOC the only and principle organizer of the May Day action - that distinction would have to include reference to the Black Working Group to whom Alicia Jackson went to for help in reclaiming her home, but what's new about Black people in leadership being discredited for and replaced by White people?), but by the Blazing Arrow Organization which has no ties to Occupy whatsoever (every action these days is immediately credited to Occupy without even two seconds of research being done). Finally, that building in question was purchased after Alicia's land was stolen through a predatory lending scam no different than any other financial scam. The community members on Sunday, tired of the government doing nothing to stop the actions of these predatory banks, decided to take action into it's own hands. The corporate media is labeling this developer as a victim when he has made mad money profiting off the misery of hardworking class people. He's no victim and the people on Sunday are no burglars. All of that is obvious to anyone who takes five minutes to find out what's really going on across the world today. Sadly, the Mercury is supposed to be an alternative news source. With friends like you we don't need any enemies.

Re: “In Other News

Two cops Eric Carlson and John Ray broke into multiple apartments on March 26th 2007 and they raped and photographed children and they murdered one of them and they poisoned Joan Wagar's husbands coffee pot!

Joan Wagar was having an affair with Eric Carlson and John Ray and those law officer's were framing Joan Wagar's husband to get the blame!
Eric Carlson and John Ray and Joan Wagar are caught bragging about their crimes to Clackamas Walmart employees and they are caught on a audio recorder Joan Wagar's husband put in her purse!

The Portland police and Multnomah county sheriff's approved flyers to be printed and issued publicly because of these crimes but the flyers gave Joan Wagar's husband the blame!
After the fact the Portland police and Multnomah county sheriff's have been trying to suppress this information from the public and have covered up victims 911 calls!

Last name of the child Eric Carlson and John Ray murdered is/was Hunter! they committed their crimes early in the morning near 87th and Division st.

Re: “In Other News

The Portland police do not answer to felony complaints and will ignore citizens complaints and they cover up victims 911 calls and they don't care if anyone knows it either!
I blog my complaints all over the internet just to prove I HAVE complaints because the Portland police cover up my 911 calls and pretend after the fact nothings reported!

My life has been threatened by police officer's so I am in a life threatening situation of which 911 does not get HELP!

Re: “In Other News

PPB doing a "It Gets Better' video, REALLY?! Gosh, might as well have members of Aryan Brotherhood/Stromfront make a video just like.

Seriously, it's ironic since ALL COPS are some of the biggest bunch of bullies ever! HELLO, Stonewall riots les we dare forget!

Re: “In Other News

hey sadtweed, why don't you like the Movement? Are you for giving banks too much power and influence? DO you like the political cronyism, lobby infiltration into laws, taxpayer dollars being wasted to bailout/payback party donors? Or maybe you just hate it when certain people express their right to free speech and assembly. you need to come out of your narrow minded vacuum and see what's really going on around you.

Re: “In Other News

"keeping on the movement" = endless shit.

"Turner's attorney argued his client was delusional at the time of the shootings" = Bullshit.

"Commissioner Randy Leonard's patented Portland Loo will now have its very own marketing campaign" = Endless bullshit.

Yeah, here's the article mentioning such:…

And here's one on his criminal DUII arrest in 2010:…

Hmm, let's see now:

Cheating on WIFE with college student young enough to be his granddaughter.
Giving said woman money/favors for sex.
Dangerous drunk who commits DUII
Embarrasses the Hell out of own children

And THIS guy ran the state's largest news paper?! Wow.

I bet dirty 'ol Caldwell was a devout christian, too!

Re: “In Other News

16, or 17 million, either way is to much. what we need to cut is the pay of the officials that run what should be a government service... do we need to pay for bus rides? yes... do we need to pay taxes to support our transportation systems? yes... do we need to pay for pet projects and high wages for the officials that run OUR transit system? no.
