Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, April 09, 2021

Contemplating the 266 shootings and 25 homicides in just the first three months of this year, Antoinette Edwards was struggling to understand how Portland city commissioners could oppose the mayor's proposal to restart a Portland Police gun-violence team.

What more do commissioners need to know to understand the trauma neighbors feel about repeated shootings on their street, Edwards, who headed the city's office of violence prevention for 10 years, asked at a Thursday press conference. What daily data report can bring the reality of the threat home to commissioners? How many more loved ones need to die before commissioners match the urgency of this crisis with courageous action of their own?

I am sure that if we only had a commission on gun violence that would frighten the people willing to take life, we could eliminate shootings forever.
Problem is another commission ain't going to stop the poverty and addiction that leads to most violence in the first place.

Top 30 highest murder rates in U.S.

Funny thing, Portland not even in top 30, but everyday you try to paint the picture that Portland is some hell on Earth.... you are spreading lies and propaganda.

"but everyday you try to paint the picture that Portland is some hell on Earth.... you are spreading lies and propaganda."

sucks, doesn't it?

I can appreciate the unfairness of it all coming from a place that's constantly being painted as hell on earth.

It's not.

Portland's gun violence surge needs dedicated police team
What you won't see on MSM. What where those murder statics again? Oh? Unreliable?

Wait, so now you ARE for heavy enforcement of gun laws? Great!!!

Also, Portland defunded their policed department by ONLY 3%.

AND they put in place a shooting investigation unit last month:

But you are conveniently ignoring is that gun violence is way up over the last 12 months in 51 of our largest cities across the country, the vast majority of whom did not make any cuts to law enforcement.

#4 A crime report from 2015? What the hell is wrong with you people.

Sigh. This is pointless. I'll read he rest later.

Talk about pointless.. you completely ignore the 2021 list of highest murder rates ...again without Portland.
Think what you want... its obvious you have a stick up your butt over Portland but you never complain about any of the actual dangerous cities...curious and sad at the same time.

Good luck in finding LEOs in Portland who are willing to be complaint/dedicated to a city govt which has been anti-police for quite a while now. I am guessing that they, if not already, will be experiencing a shortage of officers who will be willing to go into harms way for their ungrateful 'bosses'.

I expect many of the 'defund the police' blue cities will [if not already] be experiencing shortages in that profession. Better know as 'you reap what you sow' [i.e. You eventually have to face up to the consequences of your actions {which dems are pretty much incapable of doing}]
