The bad news – Occupy Portland insists on sticking around and causing problems for the 99% who aren’t them.
The good news – they’re the gift that keeps on giving for citizen journalists hell bent on exposing the truth not revealed by the legacy media.
Dateline Portland Oregon- November 29, 2011 – A videographer approaches the “peaceful protest” being conducted by Occupy Portland in front of The Justice Building in downtown Portland. An Occupier dressed in a mock police uniform and carrying a TASER replica slaps his night stick into his hand menacingly. “Keep it moving!” he orders the videographer. A short time later a man in a bandana is arrested for tresspassing in front of The Mark O. Hatfield United States Courthouse which some of the Occupiers used as a protest site. “We’re going to Burn This Town!” he tells the Federal Marshalls. A police officer informed us that the man arrested was known to them and had probably been a former resident of the Occupy Portland Camp. An officer thanks us for filming the event.
Criminal impersonation of peace officer
(1) A person commits the crime of criminal impersonation of a peace officer if the person, with the intent to obtain a benefit or to injure or defraud another person, uses false law enforcement identification or wears a law enforcement uniform to give the impression that the person is a peace officer and does an act in that assumed character.
(2) Criminal impersonation of a peace officer is a Class C felony.
Still waiting for an accurate report by anyone in the legacy media on what really goes on with these Occupy protesters.
