And a good sampling, too. They’ve had a lot of officers leave this year. Imagine that.

This will continue to be interesting to watch. You do you, Portland. Just keep it in your house and outta my yard, thanks.

I’d quit too, in their position.

Police are at the mercy of their political leadership. If those leaders are actively undercutting them, there’s really nothing else to do.

I’ve observed before that cops and teachers are in similar positions. Every social problem flows down to them. If we don’t have politicians with the sense to understand that there are limits to what cops and teachers can realistically achieve, you get Portland.

It’s even worse than that in Portland (and Seattle, and Minneapolis…) Politicians actively believe in the unobtainable and unrealistic, and use that as the metric to drive all policy decisions. The design of the whole situation guarantees failure. Full stop.  JMO.

Reminds me of this recent bit of delicious schadenfreude:

“Fuck the Police! Fuck Capitalism! Fuck the System!!”

(Falls off the building he was trying to vandalize, cracks his head on the pavement)

“CALL 911!!!”
