RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I just listened to the Think Out Loud show from
Tuesday 01 Dec 09.
I am a multiple victim of the PPB
and I don't commit ANY crimes I don't even J-Walk.
I filed a complaint but that went nowhere the complaint system is a joke.
During the complaint process I was stalked by the officer that I complained about.
So I complained about that also.
I spoke to Sgt. Spainbrook of the SE precinct.
He told me the officers can do whatever they like!
He also told me that the PPB is creating a database of cyclists in Portland.
He claims they have the right to stop any cyclist (for no reason at all) and take down the personal info of the cyclist and the info on the bicycle their riding.
Since that phone call I have been stopped three times (for no reason at all). I am treated like crap and all three times they searched me and flipped my bicycle and took the info.
I would like you to do a show on WHY the PPB is creating a database of cyclists.
What possible excuse could they have ?
Can this be legal ?
I reported all of this to Mr.Saltzman and nothing has changed.
You should contact Mr.Leonard about this issue. He seems to be the only councilperson that gives a dam.
The foul treatment I have received at the hands of Public Employees (PPB) was the reason that I ran for city council.
I know the Police have a hard job, but there is no excuse for abuse and there is no reason to be secretly creating a database of cyclists.
