What may be lost in the discussion of the Portland Police is the positive they do. I seldom hear commendations regarding the good they do for the community.
About a month ago I was pulled over by an officer for crossing a busy street against traffic control on my bike. The officer was polite and interested in maintaining public safety. He asked me for my I.D., where I was riding, and he was curious about the air pump in my pack that resembled a gun barrel on maison en bois further introspection.
Within the last year someone blocked my driveway, I called the non-emergency number and an officer showed up within 15 minutes to resolve the situation.
I've changed my attitude about the police because they have to tolerate a lot of bad behavior, bad attitudes, and dangerous situations posed by the public they are responsible to serve and protect. lunettes de soleil
I don't condone the mistakes the Portland police have made. I hope they learn from their mistakes and remain responsive to the needs of the public. I commend the Portland police for doing a difficult job under difficult circumstances.
