May LA Eat You

Portland Police Chief Mark Kroeker is going back to LA. His first act in Portland was to instate a dress code prohibiting personal adornment and facial hair, making sure his cops didn’t look like the people they served. His second act was to treat protesters like rioters, causing more violence than he prevented. His third act was to explain that his homophobia didn’t affect his job.

Before Kroeker, the city had a good relationship with its police force. Community policing and working with protesters (who are common in these parts) was important. Kroeker was all about enforcing a Stalinist authority that doesn’t fit here.

Don’t let the screen door hit you on the way out, motherfucker.

    I’m surprised he lasted as long as he did. I never could figure out why Vera had never asked him to resign each time his policies and personal beliefs had such a negative impact on the city. He will not be missed.

    I think Vera liked him. While I love (most of) what she’s done for the city, I hear she’s an asshole in person. Kroeker was her pick. She goofed, totally.

    And Senn, I saw this guy on the street a lot because I work in the next building. You have no idea how hard it was not to trip, push, bump, or challenge to pistolas at dawn. 😉
