Portland City still resists police accountability PORTLAND City continues to resist bringing its rogue police force under open accountability. At the end of March a Federal judge told the City and the DoJ he wanted agreement that his court would retain some open annual oversight of mandated police reforms. The settlement follows an investigation by the DoJ into a pattern of excessive use of force by Portland's police. Now, Portland has rejected the judge's proposal.

No Justice for Keaton Otis yet... US DoJ v City of Portland Update of US DoJ vs City of Portland on excessive use of force by Portland Police Bureau and how the DoJ avoided investigating the police killing of Keaton Otis, stopped and shot 23 times for wearing a hoodie. Keaton Otis had no police record, no contraband in his car, which belonged to his mother. No drugs or alcohol. A gun was found an hour later and police claimed he'd shot a cop... but no evidence has ever been presented.
