  • Looks like Oregon is trying to beat California for extreme PC, the race to the bottom

    In a move that appears to put political correctness above public safety, the police department in Portland, Oregon, will be stopping the practice of identifying gang members in their databases. The department will purge their records in response to strong community concerns about the labels that have disproportionately affected minorities.During a recent announcement, Acting Tactical Operations Captain Andy Shearer said the Police Bureau recognized that gang designations have led to “unintended consequences.” He stated these labels act as lifelong barriers for those who have shunned the gang lifestyle and tried to get jobs.

    The new policy is scheduled to take effect next month. The policy will end their more than 20-year-old practice of documenting and designating gang members. This new policy is viewed by multiple gang experts who spoke with Breitbart Texas, as one that will severely impair investigators and prosecutors by making it more difficult to identify gang crimes.

    What a completely dumb idea-those kind of records show pattern of behavior. ('Send all of the records to the local Fed office for the 'just in case' ) Local governments come and go.
    Even duct-tape can't fix stupid. But it can muffle the noises.

      I think it was 2 years ago that PC people were up in arms about describing a person involved in a crime as either Black or White or Male or Female....etc. They had said it was racial profiling to describe a person like that and was unfair to that particular race/gender. So, yea, "Mr. police officer it was a living breathing individual who attacked me and raped me". "NO problem, there is only 300 million people to check out now". Give me an effffffing break!

        Police already take pics of tattoos on arrested people to help identify them. It is like DNA. All that is kept in a large data base to help identify a criminal.

        Like I have said many times, if you did nothing wrong then be up front with police and cooperate.

          This just means Eugene, Or. will be right behind Portland. There is already plenty of gang activity here as it is.
