Your Intrepid Reporter was detained, at the corner of Northeast Weidler and I believe it was Grand [although I am not ruling out Grant], by six uniformed officers of the Portland Police Bureau.
In the course of some informal conversation, Officer Blazer confirmed to his fellow officers that he intended to vote for the putative Pacific Green Party candidate for US Congress, the Old Man With the Eyepatch.
Thus the police have rational minds and can see that the Green Party is talking about real problems. Right here in River City. One policeman at least is voting for the Pacific Green Party Liaison for Police Accountability.
Update 16 May 2015 : Your Intrepid Reporter was surrounded by five Blue Beach Balls at around six-thirty this evening [since the watch of Your Intrepid Reporter has been sent, consequent to his arrest on Wednesday at Pioneer Courthouse Square Starbucks, to a remote NW Industrial Park location, he is unable to state the time with his usual precision], of whom Officer Blazer was one. He told his fellow officers in my hearing that he has always liked me and still does.
Chers lecteurs, such a statement, coming from such a source, does a lot to preserve the good health of YIP. Really.
