I've posted photos of Justin as he is loaded onto a stretcher and into an ambulance: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1…
Any ODOT or Trimet cameras they could check for footage of the car?
Did the Merc steal the lesson plan of a 4th grade Social Studies teacher to write this?
Anyone who went to fourth grade in Oregon learned about John McLoughlin long ago, maybe even went to his house, and possibly the interpretive center that looks like a giant wagon and closed some time ago, I think. Some of us even recall playing the Oregon Trail computer game on old school Apple IIEs... now giving us a history lesson about that game would be a story. (especially a friend of mine from Maine also played that in the 4th grade back in the 80s).
This report has got me thinking about the report from the other day that talked about firefighters actually being healthcare workers based of the stats about the types of calls they respond to. Maybe local police agencies should distribute some similar stats and then train police according to the types of calls they actually respond to. Maybe their training and job duties simply don't match?
When you go through extensive training about how to kick in doors, chase people, and shoot them you develop the tendency to quickly respond in said fashion. Maybe policies should should shift...
@Tony I'm wondering the same thing. To sample 59 subjects in the whole Woodstock neighborhood and then try and generalize their responses on everyone else in the 'hood seems like quite the stretch.
Not that correlation equals causation, but it would be really interesting to overlay that map with a map that shows real estate property values.
Sarah, I truly love the article, the narrative and your resourcefulness of actually hitting the streets, but one critique: one "quantifies" numerical data and "qualifies" observational data.
