The Truth about the Citizen Review Committee

The Justice Department of the United States reported recently at the end of an official examination that the Portland Police Bureau engages in a pattern of police brutality.  We are now in the midst of public negotiations     regarding the response by the City of Portland to these findings, a response mediated by a federal judge.  Neither the Department of Justice nor the City of Portland proposes any essential change to the municipal mechanism now in place which oversees possible cases of police brutality, the so-called citizens review committee.

So, how is the so-called CRC doing?  Does it provide real oversight of brutality by Portland police officers?  A decision made public today can give citizens a good idea of its actual, as opposed to its planned, effectiveness.

Some time ago the bicycle rider Craig Maynard was confronted on the streets of Portland for the reason of the lack of a rear reflector on his bicycle.  As the reader knows, this action was probably harassment, but even so the worst — or most that Maynard should have received was a written warning.  In fact Portland police officer McDonald gave Maynard a broken elbow.  When McDonald brought a complaint before the Citizens Review Committee it was adjudicated as “unproven” because there was only the victim’s statement to support the claim.

Internal Affairs failed even to interview Officer McDonald in this case; twice the Committee requested Internal Affairs’s undertaking to interview McDonald; twice IA refused to do so.  Regulations governing the conduct of the police oversight committee do not require the compliance of IA to a CRC request for further investigation.

On the third request, a request made with the explicit approval of the Office of the Mayor, IA did interview officer McDonald, who — to his credit — admitted he did break Maynard’s elbow.

And the final decision of the Citizens Review Committee?  “Unproven.”

So a bicycle rider is stopped for some petty oversight and the police break his elbow.  He reports the police broke his elbow.  The police officer in question admits he broke the elbow.  And the official committee decision on police brutality: “unproven”.

Such a result need not surprise the reader, for in its report the Department of Justice spoke of the “byzantine” police oversight mechanism having the effect primarily of discouraging any action being taken to acknowledge or to counteract the police brutality it was instituted to combat.  The Maynard case is only the latest in a very long series of denials of palpable fact by the Citizens Review Committee.

One Response to The Truth about the Citizen Review Committee

  1. My wife Joan Wagar was having an affair with a Portland cop named Eric Carlson and he was acting as a double to set me up as a pedophile!

    When I found out my wife Joan Wagar was hooking our daughters up with a cop that was acting as a double I tried to warn people about it, and that’s when I was severely poisoned by Joan Wagar!

    All of my wife’s coworkers at East Port Walmart were calling officer Eric Carlson by the nickname Doubleclick because they knew he was acting as a double, and after my wife Joan Wagar poisoned me everyone at East Port Walmart started calling my wife by the nickname Mrs Dash!

    Police used their power of influence to cover up the poisonings at the hospital and I was repeatedly denied emergency services because of police influence and interference at the hospital!

    Shawna Wagar admits in writing to making false pedophile accusations about me and this occurred when my mother and father were poisoned and murdered by local police and by my wife Joan Wagar!

    April 2005 officer Eric Carlson and Joan Wagar adopted and actively used the nicknames Doubleclick and Mrs Dash in love letters and in their cellphones and it was East Port Walmart employees that first coined their nicknames!

    December 2005 I confronted my wife Joan Wagar with a audio recorder over that love letter Doubleclick the body double wrote my wife and she admits it’s her love letter but refuses to admit to her nickname because she is trying to hide the fact she is a poisoner and that it is open knowledge at East Port Walmart, she still also is trying to hide the fact Eric Carlson is a cop and a look-a-like to me!

    2006 because of police influence Joan Wagar aced a lie detector test I payed for! and two years later a detective Brian Assmus of the Oregon state police tried to cover up this lie detector test by stealing the page signed by the tester, good thing I have photo copy’s of EVERYTHING!

    2006 Two months later Joan Wagar A,K,A, Mrs Dash admits in her diary she lied on that lie detector test and admits to her affair with officer Eric Carlson and admits to using pills and antifreeze in her diary and admits to mixing drinks with poisons and admits she is a liar and a psycho and admits to poisoning a plasma donor and admits I was ill at the time and admits I cannot get help from police!

    2006 A week later Joan Wagar writes her infamous denial letter denying her ongoing affair with officer Eric Carlson and denying she is a poisoner, everything in her denial letter is a lie and even her daughters were sleeping around with officer Eric Carlson and his partners, one of her daughters got pregnant at the time of Joan Wagar writing this by Eric Carlson’s partner David!

    2006 By the time of Joan Wagar writing this written confession that she uses antifreeze as poison I was so debilitated at this time I was bedridden, Joan Wagar tossed this at me like it was a Frisbee because she wanted to see if I could get out of bed to try and find help or not, I could not!

    2007 the hospital admits I had abominable pain and internal bleeding but fakes not knowing what’s wrong and once again refuses to take a toxicology test and ignores my complaints and covers up Joan Wagar’s written confessions she is a poisoner!

    2007 Officer Eric Carlson brags to Clackamas Walmart employees he’s a twin and an alter ego and Walmart employee makes it known it is open knowledge at Clackamas Walmart he is a look-a-like to me and is using my wife Joan Wagar’s locker where my audio recorder was!

    2008 Portland police and OHSU hospital admitting to covering up my calls for help and threatening me telling me I am not welcome to help at a hospital!

    2008 Multnomah county sheriff’s covering up my calls for help and emails for help and are taunting me via their personal Blackberry emails!

    2009 Police made sure I could not get help from any other hospital as well and no one will take a toxicology test! Officer Eric Carlson is one of the first responders to respond to my 911 call and he was NOT there to help!

    2009 officer Eric Carlson and his bros in the Portland police and Joan Wagar made a audio death threat and broke into my home and put it on the computer, their using sound boards to say goodbye in multiple ways!
    The same day I found their audio death threat the police parked a black car with the Oregon license plate “SAYLVU” on it in front of my apartment!

    2009 Another Portland police officer caught on video acting as a double of me outside my apartment and he is with a female that is acting as a double of my daughter Megan Wagar, here is a picture of Megan Wagar with officer Eric Carlson’s partner David!

    And here is video of a police officer acting as a double of me and he is with a female acting as a double to my daughter Megan Wagar!

    07-10-2009 Officer Eric Carlson caught on video paying children TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS to frame me as a pedophile outside my apartment and children admitted I will be killed and admitted my family members were involved!

    2009 Two weeks later Officer Eric Carlson and his partners and my wife Joan Wagar are caught outside my apartment building trespassing and waiting in ambush to shoot me, they are armed with guns, recording devices, and flashlights, and their car with the license plate “SAYLVU” is in the parking lot!

    06-01-2014 Female sting operatives renting apartment below mine are deliberately placing small children in my path and then falsely labeling me as a pedophile!
    They continue to frame me as a pedo with intent of opening fire on me!
