Every time I hear about another poor soul in pain gunned down because they were carrying a craft knife or "looked as if they were going for a weapon," it makes me wonder. Other cities don't seem to have an abundance of cases similar to these. What makes this happen so often in Portland? Is it something in the training of the officers, or a larger population of disturbed individuals? I have a friend who shrugs and says "Oh, those trigger happy Portland cops just killed another one." That's a sad commentary, whether the situations match the perception or not.
