Entire Portland Police Rapid Response Team Resigns

Portland, Ore. — FM News 101 learned late Wednesday night that in response to the criminal indictment of Officer Corey Budworth, the bureaus entire Rapid Response Team resigned. Sources with the Police Bureau say the team voted unanimously to disband.

The Rapid Response Team is a group of volunteer officers who respond to civil disobedience, demonstrations, and riots.

Tuesday, a member of the team was charged with assault for actions during an August 18, 2020 riot in Southeast Portland.

Wednesday, Portland Police Association Executive Director, Daryl Turner told the Lars Larson Show that he feared officers would quit in response to what he called a “Witch Hunt” of a prosecution. In its own investigation the Portland Police Bureau determined no wrongdoing by the officer. He did not violate training or department rules. He did his job within the scope of the law.

1. Good, I can only imagine the profile of someone

who wants to be on that team. That the police department didn’t have an issue with what the officer did speaks volumes.

3. Good Riddance To Bad Rubbish, Sir

Police response this summer past to peaceable protests was criminal assault. I doubt there is any officer on 'riot duty' last year anywhere who doesn't deserve a few years in stir and a felony record to haunt their remaining days.

5. Just keep in mind that a similar Rapid Response team

From the Metropolitan Police Department in DC is what saved the Capitol on 1/6. Metropolitan showed up while the Capitol Police were fighting a loosing battle on many fronts.

6. And?

I am sure they were neck deep in suppressing anti-police protests as well. Bad cops are bad cops. Occasionally doing the right thing doesn't make bad cops good.

8. If you read the first and third comment in this thread

Hopefully you will get my point. Every cop is not a bad cop and every cop who volunteers for this duty is not some type of psycho nut.

9. Officer Daniel Hodges MPD is one of those officers, below is his quote

If it wasn't my job I would have done that for free. It was absolutely my pleasure to crush a white nationalist insurrection," Daniel Hodges told NBC. "I'm glad I was in a position to be able to help. We'll do it as many times as it takes."

Hodges said he was pinned to the doorway while trying to push back the mob.

"They ripped my mask off. Stole my equipment. Beat me up. Sprayed me with everything," he said.

12. I have had my own experiences with the police over the course of 4 decades

and my experience shows me that the majority of policeman are bad by commission of crimes, or by omission of reporting the police they know are bad. The bad apple analogy is routinely used, incorrectly, with the police. One bad apple does rot the entire barrel.

The police have too much power, very little oversight, and thus abuse their authority shamelessly. They are arrogant bullies who see themselves as Judge Dredd or The Punisher, not as guardians of the peace.

13. PPD aint DC Metro

PPD has literal Nazi worshipers in the ranks and protects them with all resources at their disposal. PPD has been low key on strike since the racial justice protests began, and is leaving people to die in the streets while they gobble up as much overtime as they can shake the city down for, but ONLY for purposes of shooting teargas and explosives at protestors. All while actively collaborating with the same groups of RW terrorists that attacked the nation on 1/6.

This PPD rapid response team just RESIGNED to protest one of their rank being taken to court for running up behind a woman with her hands up, beating her to the ground, and then beating her on the ground. That's the what they stand unified in support of.

Think about what such people would have done at the capital, had we all had the misfortune of their presence. I suspect they would have allowed the terrorists free reign, at best. I shudder to think what they might have done, at their worst.
