Post-Occupied

Monday morning quarterbacking continues from this weekend's cleanout of Occupy Portland. One guy is complaining that he was hurt when the police swept through Chapman Square. Curiously, the extent of his injuries is never mentioned in the O story.

Meanwhile, the cops have released the names of, and charges against, the 51 people they arrested yesterday. By our count, the average age was just under 28 years old. Interestingly, there was no one arrested between the ages of 47 and 61. Here's the police bureau's list:

I thought that I recognized the "injured" protester's bio and I was right. He was featured in a story on Fox 12 about the use of medical marijuana in the park, found here.

In the story he claims that without his medical marijuana he "can't walk" due to a back injury. However, throughout the interview, he's signing and moving around as he talks without any sign of pain or limited mobility. The guy seems like a bit of a bs artist to me.

18 - 4
19 - 5
20 - 6

62 - 1
63 - 1
81 - 1

Now, the city should add up the total cost of the Occupy event to taxpayers (park repairs, police overtime, etc) and divide it equally among those arrested.

How much does the city spend every month protecting banks? And this week, I saw a police woman stationed inside the BoA branch.

If we are going to be charging people for special service, let's charge everybody.

And this week, I saw a police woman stationed inside the BoA branch.

Probably because there have been threats of action against BofA by the Occupy folks.

These particular costs are a direct result of the Occupy movement. So I don't see your argument.

BofA generally has private security, not cops.

How much does the city spend every month protecting banks? And this week, I saw a police woman stationed inside the BoA branch.

Last time I checked, banks paid property taxes, unlike illegal campers.

But don't worry - you can complain again after the riots on Thursday when the Occupiers try to shut down the banks downtown.

I find it funny that you are refering to FOX news as a reliable source of news. Really? Come one now, we all now they lie and/or bend the truth.

Learn about the movement before you make judgement calls on what is happening. Don't just accept information that is being force fed to you.

I feel sorry for you all who CHOOSE to remain ignorant to the facts and the actual reason the Occupation exists in the first place.
In solidarity

Wow - that one dude is 81! Wonder if he's ageless like William Shatner.... Think the cops handled him with care?

I find it funny that you are refering to FOX news as a reliable source of news. Really? Come one now, we all now they lie and/or bend the truth.

I didn't refer to Fox as a "reliable source of news," I referred to it only as the source of video of the protester now claiming he was injured by Portland police. I simply find it hard to believe that a man with as serious a back injury as he claims he has would/could:

1. sleep on the ground in a park for 5 weeks
2. wade into a crowd that may well turn into a riot
3. twist, turn, and contort his body in the course of normal speech.

Also, in that video, he claims to be spoiling for a legal battle with the city. All of these things raise doubts about the police brutality narrative that the Occupy movement is trying to concoct based on this guy's claims.

Furthermore, I support the underlying principles of the Occupy movement, as do many readers and contributors on this blog. What I don't agree with is the way that the "movement" has been conducted. I think that the protesters are in the process of squandering an opportunity to make some significant political and economic changes.

Doesn't BoA pretty much own Portland?

Dirty, stinking 81 year old hippie!

Whatever happened to the concept of Assumed Risk? Perhaps standing in front of a line of riot police and refusing to follow a lawful command precludes any tortious act? Certainly ought to cost him the sympathy vote.

I find it funny that you are refering to FOX news as a reliable source of news. Really? Come one now, we all now they lie and/or bend the truth.

I hear they all get to fly to work in black helicopters.

Please, don't confuse Diamaodneyes with facts. His mind's made up........No pun intended.

70 dump-trucks to get the stuff hauled out.

Did they not know about the recycling mandates, or were they protesting that as well? Maybe they were looking to Thailand for answers:

Yeah, what about all that money for overtime and landscaping repair?

Well, the 1.5 Billion Dollar Milwaukie Light Rail is about 7.2 miles long. That's about $3500.00 an inch. Let's just end it a block shot, pay the cops, and pocket the difference.

(With no disrespect to Lego brand plastic construction toys, more than a few of our civic officials are already a few blocks short .)

Channel 8 had a run down tonight that put police overtime for the Occupy movement at $750,000. This does not include clean up,haul off and any park related damages. I'm sure if I occupied City Hall I would be dealt with in a very different manner.

NSFW: maybe the naked white fairies broke his back?

Wonder if this is the same Justin Bridges, musician.
