Very great thanks, Sarah, for writing so poignantly about this tragic and perhaps unnecessary death. I have serious concerns about how Officer Walters handled the situation, and in combination the Aaron Campbell shooting, very serious concerns about the Portland Police Department. Lately, I've been concerned that the story of Jake Collins was getting buried under other news about protest, without reference to Jake - thanks for bringing his story to the front, with such thoughtful & gentle writing.
PS: I just read that there will be a memorial for Jake Collins and 68 other homeless who have died in the last year. Here's the link: http://www.mentalhealthportland.org/?p=474…
err, typo: I meant to say I support *Sarah* Mirk for elected office. (It's hard to spell when I'm only 8 months old.)
