Sheriffs Snub Gov Kate Brown’s Call For Police Reinforcements

Kate Brown, Governor of Oregon announced a plan to create a surge of police. That would be using officers from Washington County and Clackamas County.

Unfortunately, the sheriffs of both counties told her thanks but no thanks. They are both refusing to send their deputies. It’s such a dangerous situation as Mayor Ted Wheeler and Gov Kate Brown have created in Portland.

They say that the problem is not that there are not enough police, but because they fail to make rioters suffer the consequences of their actions.

Every day they arrest the same people and DA Mike Schmidt drops the charges against them. The next day they are at it again. Because of this rioters feel free to attack police officers with anything they can throw.

Washington County Sheriff Pat Garrett refused to send his officers because of a “lack of political support for public safety”. Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts blames it on Mike Schmidt’s refusal to prosecute rioters.

Sheriff Craig Roberts said:

“The same offenders are arrested night after night, only to be released by the court and not charged with a crime by the DA’s office. The next night they are back at it again, endangering the lives of law enforcement and the community all over again.”

The riots have been progressing in violence. But the city still refuses to make the rioters pay a price for their crimes.

Sheriff Roberts said that Brown never checked with him first. She just made the announcement, but that he is refusing to go along with her plan.

The sheriff’s refusal to go along is a blow to Brown, but she and Wheeler are to blame. If there were consequences for their actions, rioters would have stopped.

On Saturday a rioter shot a Trump supporter in cold blood. A second intended victim managed to get away as the shooter ran away from the scene.

The next day Brown blamed the shooting not on the shooter but on the victim. In fact, she praised Black Lives Matter for their ongoing protests. Is this woman insane? (That was a rhetorical question.)

From The Washington Times

Ms. Brown also said Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt, whose jurisdiction covers Portland, agreed to pursue cases against serious criminals.

Mr. Schmidt in August announced a policy of refusing to press charges against people arrested for demonstrating or rioting unless police specifically found they engaged in violence. Those who refused to follow police dispersal orders, for example, had their cases dropped.

Sheriff Roberts said changing that approach is the key to regaining control of the mayhem.

From Oregon Live

Roberts on Monday criticized the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office for not prosecuting people who have been “arrested night after night” and are “endangering the lives of law enforcement.” Court and jail records show that few people have been arrested multiple times at protests and that the majority of arrests have been for non-violent crimes.

The violence has been going on now for over three months with daily rioting. Mayor Wheeler not only refused to punish rioters but he marched with them as well.

He is running for reelection but the people of Portland are the losers. The other candidate is more extreme than Wheeler. She calls herself the Antifa candidate.

Kristin Dennis, Wheeler’s chief of staff said:

“We need regional collaboration because safety in Portland is an issue of regional importance. The mayor looks forward to continuing the conversations with our valued regional partners and will continue to work with stakeholders to address these and other public safety needs.”
