Cops on the Hill: Stories from the weeks of April 8 & 15, 2022

  Polar Opposite: This week an aide said that the Member will listen only to police officials regarding voting on change to the Drug War.  SMH….I have that office down as a: NO!


Oregon Decrim Update: Critics are jumping on two major points: 1) 90% of the those who received a civil infraction ticket for possession, simply threw them away, doing nothing.(much like people throw away parking tickets). 2) Not one bed for treatment is ready for those who want it.  The State is spending 300 million this year to make those facilities up and going.

Many critics are whining about the fact that the law does Not provide for mandatory treatment, something which was deliberately left out of the new law. Only 1% of the 2,000 persons who received a ticket have asked for treatment.
