Police abuse

Live from Seattle WTO - 1 of ?

program date: 
Thu, 12/02/1999

This is an excerpt from an hour-long pre-emption on Thursday December 2, 1999 in which I recount a Direct Action Network press conference that finished just before I went on air.  This audio will NOT be part of KBOO's special coverage of the 10th anniversary of the Seattle WTO demonstrations.

However, I will contribute other audio from the dozens of hours of tape I rolled in Seattle while covering the WTO  Ministerial for KBOO.

Wake Up and Smell The Boot Polish

program date: 
Tue, 11/10/2009

 Hosted by Abe Proctor and Joe Uris

 Today, Joe is by himself, and he opens the show with a reading of an article from August of 1993 that was printed in a small independent rag called PDXS.  The article was entitled "Wake Up And Smell The Boot Polish," and warned us of a pending Fascist State looming on the horizon.  Amazingly, the article could have been written yesterday, and inspired quite the flurry of calls.

Portland Police Internal Review Into Deadly Arrest Released

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Wed, 09/23/2009

The findings of the Portland Police internal review into the death of James Chasse [CHA-see] were released today.  James Chasse was a musician and writer who died three years ago from injuries arising from his arrest by Portland Police.
The review found that the use of force by officers at his arrest did not violate policy and that one of the officers “knew or should have known that Mr. Chasse had suffered a serious physical injury.’
However it found that Sergeant Kyle Nice violated a police board directive that should have lead to Chasse being taken straight to hospital, rather than to the Jail.
KBOO’s Paul Munday talked to Jason Renaud of the Mental Health Association, a friend of Jason Chasse, and Dan Handleman of Portland Copwatch, for their reaction.

Thu, 10/08/2009 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Why aren't Portland police being held accountable?

Why aren't Portland police being held accountable?

The list of city residents who've become victims at the hands of the Portland police continues to grow, leading Oregonian columnist Anna Griffin to observe the news stories about these incidents "makes the Rose City's finest look like thugs with badges." In the meantime, Chief Rosie Sizer's finding on the death of James Chasse - and her failure to punish the offending officers - suggests police accountability remains little more than a joke in our city. Why can't Portland hold its police force accountable? Should the mayor take back the police commissioner duties from Commissioner Saltzman? Where's the city auditor's Independent Police Review division in all this?

The Cost of the Military Machine, Portland Police Taken to Task, and Problems with Changing the Status Quo.
