JBLM uses false police reports to cause Oregon police to arrest AWOL soldier.
Christopher Lee Gardner deserted his post at Joint Base Lewis-McChord after being targeted and continuously harassed [...]
The JBLMATO stated that Gardner was a potential homegrown violent extremist (HVE) because he had expressed disagreement with government policies and potential upcoming deployments. JBLM officials sent out a state-wide bulletin claiming that Gardner was armed and dangerous - a common practice to get civilian police agencies to apprehend military deserters - although there was not any evidence that Gardner actually posed a threat to himself or others.

This was my first protest I have been to in a long time. I went cause of what is happening around the world right now and a new class consciousness emerging we have not had a class consciousness in this country in a long time. When I arrived there were a few young people dressed in black standing on the edge of pioneer square. After a few minutes more continued to arrive I would say a few dozen came. One participant asked me if I had a mask I said I did and thanked them for their concern. There was some right wing agitators and trolls but many people came up and asked me what was happening and I told them the best I could, but they needed to talk to the Youth Liberation Front. Seriously a great group of youth dedicated and passionate. After being there for a while I had to leave afterwards they marched on trimet and took free ride.
Say no to Trimet cops they way to fund trimet is to not criminalize the poor!

Portland Copwatch wishes to express concern with the conclusions being
drawn from the follow up on the Lt. Niiya texting scandal. The
investigation has cleared Niiya of violating Bureau policy. The Mayor
and Chief are claiming that new training for officers to act as liaisons
in crowd situations led to the "success" of the August 17 proto-fascist
/ anti-fascist demonstrations. [...]
The lesson the City and Police still have to learn is that the First
Amendment doesn't contemplate negative repercussions from the state for
those who refuse to communicate when they exercise their rights, nor
does it grant privileges to those who do talk with the authorities. [...]

We remember the brutal murder of Fouad Kaady on this date in 2005, by Sandy police officer & Clackamas County deputy. Those of us who met the good Kaady family & supported them, told them we would not forget. And we meant it.
