Under the rug

As usual, the latest bad news about Portland's wayward police force was published by the city's daily newspaper at 6:00 p.m. on Friday -- the start of a three-day holiday weekend. This supposed coincidence happens a few times a year, it seems. For those of you who missed the two stories, here's a recap:

Ronald Frashour, the officer who was fired after needlessly shooting an unarmed man in the back last January (subject to union appeal, of course), has cost the city's taxpayers another $44,000 over his ramming the wrong cruiser with his police car in a cowboy move a few summers ago. Maybe someone should have realized that he wasn't the best guy to send out with the shotgun to a suicide-by-cop scenario.

Meanwhile, a $500,000 lawsuit has been laid on the city over sexual harassment of a teenage girl by fired officer Joseph Wild (yes, that's his real name), on a city-provided cell phone two years ago.

That wasn't a shotgun, it was an AR-15 assault rifle.

Pay attention to the details.

The City Council approved a settlement with the second innocent driver whom Frashour hit after he caromed off the wrong car he intentionally rammed.

The person whom he deliberately rammed (wrong color car - red instead of white, or white instead of red), is still wrapped up in a separate llawsuit with the City,inwhich the City Attorney's Office ias acting just like any insurance company whore law firm, delaying, delaying, delaying, and denying, denying, denying denying.

At least getting rid of Frashour will put an end to the constant bleeding of the taxpayers in paying for both his negligent acts like deliberately ramming the wrong color car in a pursuit as well as his intentional acts -like executing citizens.

Speaking of cell phones - where can the public find the phone usage records (just cost/minutes) of the Portland police?

Will Shay you can try requesting that information from the City Auditor's office. Good like with that. They've gotten tighter than a severely rusted bolt on a screw.
