Did I say OUT OF CONTROL?
Yes, that's exactly what I meant.
Full of stupid idiots, "following orders" and arresting 9 year old girls and putting them in handcuffs!!!
These are the people that you are entrusting with your safety?
I know it sounds like I am making this stuff up. I assure you I am not.
"Police officers in Portland, Ore., handcuffed
a 9-year-old-girl and took her to the station in a police car. They
photographed and fingerprinted her and detained her for nearly an hour
before her mother arrived."
"Her “crime”? Getting in a fight with another kid—a fight that took
place nearly a week beforehand and ended with apologies on all sides."
That is not just stupid, morally obtuse, obscene and a perversion of the law it is CHILD ABUSE.
Those officers need to be fired.
Along with their supervisors.
Named and shamed. And then their asses need to be sued off.
The people in charge are saying EVERYTHING WAS FINE, WENT ACCORDING TO POLICY.
"Integrity. Compassion. Accountability. Respect. Excellence. Service."
WHAT A LOAD OF DOGSQUEEZE.
Now check this out. The mom, LaToya Harris, of course, was outraged. So she tried to do something about it:
"Harris is determined to ensure nothing similar happens again in
"When she filed a complaint with the police department, the
Independent Police Review Division found the officers violated no
departmental policies. Undeterred, she told her story to the Citizen
Review Committee, which hears complaints of alleged officer misconduct
against Portland police. Now, concerned citizens are demanding changes
in departmental policy."
FIRE. THEM. ALL.
A nine year old girl is cuffed and taken to a police station and detained for an hour without a parent and it's OK because 'the officers violated no departmental policies'.
If that is the case, throw out the whole book of policies and fire everyone who wrote and approved them and start from scratch.
What a despicable and a vile perversion of law and order executed by revolting and pathetic excuses of "men".
Shame on the police of Oregon.
Shame on the officers and the "Independent Police Review Division".
Corrupt. Disgusting and lawless.
The mom deserves a medal for taking these despicable creatures on and making them accountable.
