On the Streets of Eugene

My son Michael Kepler Meo attended one of the Conversations on Race we have here in Portland, one in which the Albina Ministerial Alliance on police accountability and the Chief of Police, along with several of his deputies, appeared.  He spoke about how, never mind the color of the detained person, Portland police have a long history of treating detainees brutally, if not killing them outright.

The deputy chief, at my son’s table, agreed with that.  My son was positively impressed.  Yet, a day or so later, we have this scene from downtown Eugene, Oregon:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPePMEQ-3Kc
