Portland Police at anti-war rally
Though the Portland police do make mistakes sometimes, it annoys me that we only seem to hear about them when something goes wrong, and we don't hear about the good job they do most of the time. At today's protest, the police were relaxed and professional. I heard them talk to people in the crowd in a friendly way. A few protesters seemed to be trying to provoke the police by walking through their group in a way that was not violent or illegal, but was rude and somewhat odd. The police did not react. I saw nothing but professional, reasonable conduct from the police downtown.
