If The Oregonian's careful parsing is problematic, what do you call the other news outlets who ran with it themselves, minus the caveats?

I doubt anyone is all that surprised by either the actions of The O or the Portland police, hopefully something will come of the investigation.

In related "our police department needs reform" news, it was good to see The Intercept do a feature on this local story, worth a listen if you didn't catch it:
