Portlandians react to police bureau's diversity video on social media

Jun 15 2020, 2:28 pm

Amidst protests, demonstrations, and sky-high tension levels, the Portland Police Bureau released this video:

The video comes the morning after yet another day and night of protests that included partial escalation involving force to control “civil disturbance” and “unlawful assembly.” Since the dawn of the local Black Lives Matter movement in Portland, the police have taken up crowd-control munitions, protecting landmarks like the Justice Center downtown.

Some vocal Portlandians have not taken the message too kindly, and a few have taken to social media to vent their outrage.

In contrast, there were a few folks expressing vocal support for the Portland police and see this message as a caring and empathetic move from the Bureau.
