Another Great Idea

  • The Portland Police Bureau (PPB) announced on Friday afternoon, September 8, that it will stop documenting people as gang members, and will purge its gang member database in October, right after Danielle Outlaw is appointed as the new Police Chief.

    The move appears to be done in the name of political correctness. Many agencies throughout the nation have gang member databases, and they are an invaluable investigative tool for officers, including officer safety.

    The gang database would alert officers when they were out with a known gang member, and that database is now going away.

    The database was also used to send social workers to try to work with the gang members to get them out of gangs.

    The PPB said that the practice is being discontinued after strong concerns were brought up by residents about the gang member label, which have “disproportionately affected minorities,” according to OregonLive.
So the big brains in Portland decided to take away a tool that might help steer the affected parties away from crime instead of maybe addressing the issues that led to the "affected minorities" turning to the gangs in the first place. Things like:
  • missing fathers;
  • lack of family structure;
  • no stigma attached to substance abuse;
  • out-of-wedlock children without a support system;
  • conflict resolution;
  • regular, steady employment;
  • delayed gratification
The gangs supply all of that and more. How about addressing those problems and not pretending a problem doesn't exist? Or is that "racist"?

The stigma of the gang member status may be detrimental to the individual, who by the way had a choice in most cases, but the label also protected police officers as well as the general public. Therefore the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few or the one.

This is because of the immigration policy of the Trump administration. ICE goes after known gang members and deports them on information about their gang affiliations. I hope some coppers saves that information and gives it to ICE personnel.

I know it's very difficult not to chase these guys but it will save your career and your bank account. Go read the order on pursuits. The city expects us to obey each and every order. When an order is violated and the city is pissed off about it they will use every word of it to hammer you. They don't care if the police were shot at. Also the responsibility for terminating a chase is on the pursuit Officer. Saying a supervisor didn't terminate the chase is not a defense.

IMHO this has nothing to do with 'Political Correctness', but all to do with the new Police Chief, Danielle Outlaw, looking out for her African-American Homies.

Yeah, sorry, but I'm calling her a racist. And this is why: ...'the gang member label, which have “disproportionately affected minorities,” .....' So if more Whites were Gang Members everything would be hunky-dory, right Ms Outlaw? (what a fitting name for a pro-criminal person)

What she's doing in effect is this fairly new legal ploy of Nullification (of a Law/ Practice) by something called 'Disparate Impact' (its original purpose was to insure Fair Housing renting/lending). If a law, ANY Law, has a prejudicial effect on Blacks, even if no racial discrimination / prejudice was intended, that Law is Null and Void. Black 'Activist' Lawyers are using this more and more. It was a favorite tool of the Obama Administration.

In the near future you'll see Black 'Activists' / Lawyers / Politicians trying to use 'Disparate Impact' in Criminal Law. Since it's a fact that Blacks are effected more by Criminal Laws than any other Racial Group, the Laws are Discriminatory due to Disparate Impact and are therefore 'illegal'.

So I hope this moron's policies bite her in the ass big time. Because if this nonsense gains traction this country will be lawless and un-fucking-governable. It will be complete anarchy

You can't hide from the truth only try to cover it up, which the media in Chicago is very good at.

Shame on whoever was the highest ranking officer (I'm assuming it was the Lt) in the District for not overruling that termination order. My response in the vehicle pursuit report would be as follows..."The termination of this pursuit as ordered by Sgt ---- was overruled by R/Lt for the simple fact that the occupants of pursued vehicle attempted to MURDER a police officer. Any decision otherwise would only embolden the actors encourage and perpetuate further attacks on law enforcement."

Clearly, Pursuits are filled with peril and it's usually not wise to engage. However, there has to be a limit to the abuse we must tolerate. We better have the balls and willingness to stand up and protect ourselves and one another at the very least and we need leaders that have the guts to do it when necessary. Sadly, this was one instance where leadership failed us and, as a result, the cocksucking savage that shot at the police likely won't hesitate to do it again.

I left Chicago about 6 years ago and moved to Oregon, working for a mid sized suburb outside of Portland. Mostly a pro police town, the protesters do show up in Portland and cause issues for Portland P.D. And Portland P.D with out question has their fair share of issues with policies that are very liberal.
Its a liberal state but so is IL. I'm glad I left, not having to police the ghetto and having a nice sized house and land was worth it for me.

Our great American society has a proven and well known history of being discriminatory against many of its own fellow Americans. Why else do you think organizations like the Jewish Defense League, the NAACP, hell, even Mexican farm workers became organized? Irish Americans, Italian Americans, Polish, Japanese, Chinese, etc. all organized their own groups to look out after their self-interest, because they had to look within themselves to fight for their rights. Battles that still go on today.

Let's hope somebody in the Portland Police department does a Wikileaks and passes on this important intelligence to (us) some private citizens who can make use of this important information.

Who are the Gang members?
Where do they live, hang out?
What weapons do they use?
Who do they sleep with - we can work those that sleep with the gang members to find them?

Also note that one of the worst gangs in Portland OR are the masked Antifa gangs that attack police, conservatives, Trump supporters, Identitarians, Alternative Right activists.

Don't let the lying media, fake news Lib Left media, cuckservative media fool you - the masked Antifa mobs are criminal street gangs - their White middle class backgrounds do not change the fact that they are street gangs and they can and will do violence against police and regular citizens.

I respond:

While it's true that anti American, BlackliesMatter mobs, race hustlers have been causing the most trouble, murder and mayhem it's not fair to say that they are the only race doing this.

What about the National Council of Laraza? LaRaza translates as "The Race" - Laraza is a Latino racial/cultural power group that agitates for Latino power and for things like not enforcing our immigration laws. LaRaza is also a Hispanic only street gang in Chicago that recently shot up a police car with an AK47 rifle.

The as bad as it gets "American" mass media is dominated by 5 media corporations that control over 90% of American news, sports and entertainment. All of these Media corporations are run at the top by the same racial/ethnic group - they're not Black. It's an ethnic media mafia that hates traditional White European American history, culture - wants to see us replace.

Again it's a media mafia and it's not the Italian American Mafia - something much worse.

Does anyone actually do anything different when they see a gang caution file, should assume everyone could be dangerous already and by the time you see it the most dangerous part is pretty much over. Most true bangers are the most co-operative people to stop they know the routine, they talk shit, but do what you tell them anyway unless they got something.
