June 2021Post NowIn the NewsAwesomeJunieenth Snapchat Police ResignationsObamacare Bends BudgetHate CrimeMembers of the Portland Police Bureau’s Rapid Response Team worked on more than 100 nights of protest in 2020. According to sources, all officers in the unit decided to resign from the team on Wednesday, June 16, 2021. Jonathan Levinson / OPBAll officers, sergeants and detectives on the Rapid Response Team at the Portland Police Bureau. ?? the unit responsible for the police protests in the city â ???? left the team on Wednesday evening. THANKS TO OUR SPONSOR: Become a sponsor The police bureau officials called the move unprecedented. The resignation from the unit came after it became known this week that one member of the team, Officer Corey Budworth, would be criminally charged with excessive misconduct used in a racial justice protest last year and that a second member of the Rapid Response Teams, Det. Erik Kammerer is under investigation by the Oregon Department of Justice on similar allegations. Three sources working for the city of Portland confirmed their resignation to OPB Thursday morning before an official statement from the police bureau was issued. The officers will remain employed by the Portland Police Bureau but will no longer work as part of the Rapid Response Team. Assignments to the team are made on a voluntary basis within the police office. The resignations were first reported by KXL. Speaking to the OPB, Multnomah County’s District Attorney Mike Schmidt said his office is still looking into other cases of violence by officials in connection with protests, leaving the door open to further prosecutions against RRT members. In a statement on Thursday, police headquarters confirmed that the team of around 50 officers would no longer work together. This does not mean that there will be no reaction in public policy situations, â ???? The acting boss Chris Davis said in a press conference. “We will use the resources we have.” Davis, who stands in for Police Chief Chuck Lovell while attending a training session, said police are in talks with neighbors law enforcement agencies, although some of those agencies have expressed hesitation in the past To support Portland’s police protest efforts. Still, Davis said, through staffing adjustments and coordination with other law enforcement agencies, he was confident that the office could handle any event where the Rapid Response Team would normally be deployed. What you’re likely to see is a similar response, just with a slightly different approach to on-duty resources as opposed to the specialized people who come in and take on this mission, â ???? said Davis. The Rapid Response Team has been on duty frequently over the past 14 months and has regularly occupied protests, which has been detrimental to the city both financially and in terms of officer morale. According to the city budget, Portland Police Department collected nearly $ 7 million in overtime in June and July 2020 alone. Davis said members of the unit made several complaints to management over the past year, including objections to Budworth’s indictment. “You brought this up, among other things” said Davis. “I think this is really the culmination of a very long process and it is not just a charge that led to it.” THANKS TO OUR SPONSOR: Become a Sponsor This February 2020 photo was taken by a protest observer, the Portland Police Officer, Corey Budworth, left, and Det. Erik Kammerer, right, stand outside the Multnomah County Justice Center. The Oregon Department of Justice is reviewing Det. Kammerer’s complaints about possible criminal charges related to the use of force in protests against racial justice last summer. Officer Corey Budworth was charged by a grand jury with fourth degree assault for alleged excessive violence during a protest on August 18. Courtesy of Doug Brown The Portland Police Association, the union that represents ordinary officers, criticized Schmidt’s office this week over the Budworth indictment, calling it a political move, and saying that Budworth was in the crossfire of agenda-driven city leaders and one politicized criminal justice system. The charges against Budworth were carried out with the assistance of the Portland Police Bureau and were the result of a grand jury trial. Budworth is accused of hitting activist photographer Teri Jacobs from behind with a baton. Several videos of the incident posted on social media show Jacobs moving with his hands over his head as officers clear a street near the Multnomah Building on Southeast Hawthorne Avenue. An officer in the video identified as Budworth hits Jacobs once in the head from the back and then hits her face again after she fell to the ground. In February, the City of Portland settled a $ 50,000 lawsuit with Jacobs. who was wearing press cards at the time of the alleged attack. Jacobsâ ???? Case was just one of the excessive violence allegations the Rapid Response Team faced in 2020, when the office recorded around 6,000 incidents of violence. This sparked multiple lawsuits against the city, as well as criticism from US Justice Department attorneys who say Portland officials have deviated widely from the necessary use of force policy under a federal settlement agreement. In a statement late Thursday, Portland City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty harshly reprimanded officials for stepping down in a moment of accountability and reiterated her support for the District Attorney above the law, ” She wrote. “I support Prosecutor Mike Schmidt in his efforts to hold police officers accountable when they commit crimes because no one is above the law.” Hardesty was a consistent critic of the police team and had called for the unit to be disbanded last fall. But, she said, she wanted to dissolve the unit through a council action – ???? not in protest of the police themselves. I remain deeply concerned that these RRT resignations are yet another example of a renegade paramilitary organization that is not accountable to Portland’s elected officials and residents. said Hardesty. On Thursday Schmidt said he had “self-confidence”? the office would still be able to maintain public safety without the Rapid Response Team. ”In the meantime, my office will continue to focus on the fair and equitable prosecution of criminal cases. We cannot expect the community to trust law enforcement if we stick to a lower standard, â ???? Schmidt wrote. Davis said the office will continue to work with Schmidt’s office to overcome “points of friction”. which he said arise naturally in difficult times. I don’t expect to see what some other cities have seen where this relationship is getting worse and people are not talking to each other ???? he said. “I don’t see this here.” Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, who is the city’s police commissioner and is being called back in part because of city complaints, has to be called back The police bureau has a heavy hand in responding to the 2020 protests and said he had ordered the Portland Police Bureau to “prepare mobile field workers to respond to all public safety needs, including potential mass gatherings related to violence”. Wheeler said Oregon’s Governor Kate Brown has also provided Oregon State Police officers when needed. The mayor also said he recognizes that “the toll has grown over the past year (members of the Rapid Response Team) and their families.” THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSOR: Become a Sponsor THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSOR: Become a Sponsor View OPB’s First NewsletterSign up to receive important news and culture from across the Northwest, delivered to your inbox six days a week.

Mitglieder des Schnellreaktionsteams des Portland Police Bureau arbeiteten im Jahr 2020 an mehr als 100 Protestnächten. Quellen zufolge beschlossen alle Beamten der Einheit, am Mittwoch, dem 16. Juni 2021, aus dem Team zurückzutreten.

Alle Offiziere, Sergeants und Detektive mit dem Rapid Response Team des Portland Police Bureau – ???? die für die Polizeiproteste in der Stadt zuständige Einheit â???? schied am Mittwochabend gemeinsam aus dem Team aus.

Der Austritt aus der Einheit erfolgte, nachdem diese Woche bekannt wurde, dass ein Mitglied des Teams, Officer Corey Budworth, wegen übermäßiger Gewaltanwendung bei einem Protest gegen die Rassengerechtigkeit im vergangenen Jahr strafrechtlich angeklagt werden würde und dass ein zweites Mitglied des Rapid Response Teams, Det. Erik Kammerer wird wegen ähnlicher Vorwürfe vom Justizministerium von Oregon untersucht.

Drei Quellen, die für die Stadt Portland arbeiten, bestätigten die Rücktritte gegenüber OPB am Donnerstagmorgen vor einer offiziellen Erklärung des Polizeibüros. Die Beamten bleiben beim Portland Police Bureau angestellt, werden jedoch nicht mehr als Teil des Rapid Response Teams arbeiten. Die Einsätze im Team erfolgen auf freiwilliger Basis innerhalb des Polizeipräsidiums.

In einem Gespräch mit OPB am Mittwoch sagte Mike Schmidt, Bezirksstaatsanwalt von Multnomah County, sein Büro prüfe noch andere Fälle von Gewaltanwendung durch Beamte im Zusammenhang mit Protesten und lasse die Tür für weitere strafrechtliche Verfolgungen gegen RRT-Mitglieder offen.

In einer Erklärung vom Donnerstag bestätigte das Polizeipräsidium, dass das Team von etwa 50 Beamten nicht mehr zusammenarbeiten würde.

„Dies bedeutet nicht, dass in Situationen der öffentlichen Ordnung keine Reaktion erfolgt“, Das sagte der amtierende Chef Chris Davis in einer Pressekonferenz. â????Wir werden die Ressourcen nutzen, die wir haben.â????

Davis, der für Polizeichef Chuck Lovell einspringt, während er bei einer Schulung ist, sagte, die Polizei befinde sich in Gesprächen mit benachbarten Strafverfolgungsbehörden, obwohl einige dieser Behörden in der Vergangenheit ihr Zögern geäußert haben, Portland zu unterstützen? ?s Bemühungen, Proteste zu polizeilich. Dennoch, so Davis, sei er durch Personalanpassungen und die Koordination mit anderen Strafverfolgungsbehörden zuversichtlich, dass das Büro jedes Ereignis bewältigen könne, bei dem das Rapid Response Team normalerweise eingesetzt würde.

„Was Sie wahrscheinlich sehen werden, ist eine ähnliche Reaktion, nur mit einem etwas anderen Ansatz mit Ressourcen im Dienst im Gegensatz zu den spezialisierten Leuten, die hereinkommen und diese Mission übernehmen“, sagte Davis.

Das Rapid Response Team war in den letzten 14 Monaten häufig im Einsatz und besetzte regelmäßig Proteste, was der Stadt sowohl finanziell als auch in Bezug auf die Moral der Offiziere zu Lasten ging. Laut Haushaltszahlen der Stadt hat die Polizei von Portland allein im Juni und Juli 2020 fast 7 Millionen US-Dollar an Überstunden gesammelt.

Davis sagte, die Mitglieder der Einheit hätten gegenüber dem Management mehrere Beschwerden über das vergangene Jahr geäußert, darunter Einwände gegen die strafrechtliche Verfolgung von Budworth.

â??Sie haben das unter anderem zur Sprache gebrachtâ???? sagte Davis. „Ich denke, dies ist wirklich der Höhepunkt eines sehr langen Prozesses und es ist nicht nur eine Anklage, die dazu geführt hat.“

Auf diesem Foto vom Februar 2020, das von einem Protestbeobachter geliefert wurde, dem Polizeibeamten von Portland, Corey Budworth, links, und Det. Erik Kammerer, rechts, steht vor dem Justizzentrum von Multnomah County. Das Justizministerium von Oregon überprüft Det. Kammerers Klagen wegen möglicher strafrechtlicher Anklagen im Zusammenhang mit der Anwendung von Gewalt bei den Protesten gegen die Rassengerechtigkeit im letzten Sommer. Officer Corey Budworth wurde von einer Grand Jury wegen Körperverletzung vierten Grades wegen seiner angeblich übermäßigen Gewalt während eines Protestes am 18. August angeklagt.

Die Portland Police Association, die Gewerkschaft, die einfache Offiziere vertritt, hat diese Woche Kritik an Schmidts Büro über die Anklage von Budworth geübt, sie als einen politischen Schritt bezeichnet und gesagt, Budworth sei â?? ???Gefangen im Kreuzfeuer von Agenda-gesteuerten Stadtführern und einem politisierten Strafjustizsystem.

Die Anklage gegen Budworth wurde mit Unterstützung des Portland Police Bureau durchgeführt und war das Ergebnis eines Grand Jury-Verfahrens.

Budworth wird vorgeworfen, die aktivistische Fotografin Teri Jacobs mit einem Schlagstock von hinten geschlagen zu haben. Mehrere Videos des Vorfalls, die in den sozialen Medien veröffentlicht wurden, zeigen Jacobs, wie er sich mit den Händen über dem Kopf wegbewegt, als Beamte eine Straße in der Nähe des Multnomah Building in der Southeast Hawthorne Avenue räumen. Ein Beamter in dem Video, der als Budworth identifiziert wurde, schlägt Jacobs einmal von hinten auf den Kopf und dann erneut mit dem Kopf ins Gesicht, nachdem sie zu Boden gefallen ist.

Im Februar hat die Stadt Portland eine Klage über 50.000 US-Dollar mit Jacobs beigelegt, der zum Zeitpunkt des mutmaßlichen Angriffs Presseausweise trug.

Jacobsâ???? Fall war nur einer der Vorwürfe übermäßiger Gewalt, mit denen das Rapid Response Team im Jahr 2020 konfrontiert war, als das Büro rund 6.000 Gewaltfälle verzeichnete. Dies führte zu mehreren Klagen gegen die Stadt sowie zu Kritik von Staatsanwälten des US-Justizministeriums, die sagen, dass Portland-Beamte weit von der erforderlichen Gewaltanwendung im Rahmen eines Bundesvergleichsabkommens abgewichen sind.

In einer Erklärung am späten Donnerstag wies die Kommissarin von Portland City, Jo Ann Hardesty, die Beamten scharf zurecht, weil sie in einem Moment der Rechenschaftspflicht zurückgetreten waren, und bekräftigte ihre Unterstützung für den Bezirksstaatsanwalt.

“Was die heutige Aktion besagt, ist, dass einige Portland-Polizisten glauben, dass sie über dem Gesetz stehen.” Sie schrieb. „Ich unterstütze Staatsanwalt Mike Schmidt in seinem Bemühen, Polizisten zur Rechenschaft zu ziehen, wenn sie selbst Straftaten begehen, weil niemand über dem Gesetz steht.“

Hardesty war ein konsequenter Kritiker des Polizeiteams und hatte im vergangenen Herbst die Auflösung der Einheit gefordert. Aber, sagte sie, sie wolle die Einheit durch eine Ratsaktion auflösen – ???? nicht aus Protest der Polizei selbst.

„Ich bin nach wie vor zutiefst besorgt, dass diese RRT-Rücktritte ein weiteres Beispiel für eine abtrünnige paramilitärische Organisation sind, die den gewählten Amtsträgern und Einwohnern von Portland nicht rechenschaftspflichtig ist.“ Hardest sagte.

Wheeler sagte, Oregons Gouverneurin Kate Brown habe bei Bedarf auch Beamte der Oregon State Police zur Verfügung gestellt. Der Bürgermeister sagte auch, er räumte ein, dass der Tribut im vergangenen Jahr (Mitglieder des Schnellreaktionsteams) und deren Familien gestiegen ist.
