Exclusive: Portland ‘leaders’ pushing to eliminate Criminal Intelligence Unit, Emergency Response Teams

Share:

PORTLAND, OR- Civil unrest and rioting have become the new normal in Portland, Oregon. Now, instead of fighting to drive down the violence that is flooding the streets city officials are attempting to shut down policing units.

Starting on Monday, October 19 Portland City Council will begin working on the Fall Budget Monitoring Process (BMP) and local law enforcement agencies are on the chopping block. 

An exclusive email given to Law Enforcement Today by sources within the Portland Police Bureau (PPB) detail the actions that the council could take to limit police.

The email, which was sent to all members of the PPB alludes to the council targeting specific policing units:

“I think most of us expect some members of Council to take steps to impose additional cuts to the Bureau’s budget during the Fall BMP.  Based upon emails I have seen, I expect SERT, RRT and the Criminal Intelligence Unit to be targets during the BMP process.  Until we start the BMP process, we will not know just how large the cuts could be.”

The Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT), Rapid Response Team (RRT), and Criminal Intelligence Unit all have one thing in common: they have been essential at quelling the violent rioting that has taken over Portland’s street.

Why would a city that has been overwhelmed by anarchy and violence cut direct funding from the units who aim to stop the chaos? Perhaps it is because city officials benefit from allowing criminals to run amuck.

A veteran Portland Police Officer spoke with Law Enforcement Today on the condition that we maintain their anonymity, as they are not authorized to speak publicly about the potential cuts:

“Our units have been too effective at gathering intelligence on Antifa and other extremist groups.  Intel that’s saving lives of citizens and officers, mind you.  Hardesty is looking to eliminate the ability of our department to proactively gather intel top stop their criminal activity.”

Portland’s politicians gain votes from allowing violent rioters to overtake the streets. Make no mistake, the budget cuts will shut down entire units, not over a lack of money, but for political gains.

A second officer spoke to LET, also on the condition of anonymity:

“To break it down simply, they want to eliminate the most important teams in the Portland police department – including what’s essentially our SWAT team, for those not familiar with policing.  Make no mistake – this is how they are rapidly and secretly working to destroy the department from within.”

Portland’s City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty has already indicated a disdain towards the RRT because of it’s “impact of escalating violence and tension.”

Hardesty is transparent in her advocacy for shutting down a critical unit for riot response. In a tweet the commissioner stated:

“My office continues to advocate for the disbanding of the RRT.”

If the budget for the RRT or any of the other units mentioned is slashed, or outright removed, it should come as no surprise to Portland residents.

The email then explains that three members of the City Council must vote to make the cuts. It adds that local officials are working hard to prevent the slashing of an already small budget:

“The Mayor’s Office, Chief’s Office, and the Business Services Group are doing everything we can to provide accurate information about what our units and teams do, and what the impacts of drastic cuts to our budget will do to our ability to provide safety services to the people of Portland.”

The message then delivers a hard truth to law enforcement personal, their jobs are not safe. Despite working tirelessly for their city and risking their lives every night, Portland police officers would be facing layoffs:

“I’m sure you are hearing rumors of people getting laid off.  Whispers about radical changes in how we do business.  I cannot give you answers about layoffs today.”

It is important to realize that the city of Portland is still facing a major crisis. Riots are still destroying businesses nightly and rioters are still loose on the streets. Now realize that, despite the city rapidly becoming a dystopian nightmare, the City Council is pushing to eliminate the very men and women who fight to restore order. Why? Because it will gain them a couple of votes in the next election cycle. 

The email also outlines the lengths police leaders are going to ensure layoffs don’t happen. From delaying projects to selling off equipment local agencies are fighting tooth and nail to keep officers on the street:

“We are getting rid of phones, computers, vehicles, downsizing our building footprint, delaying projects… because we value people.  When somebody asks me to spend $50,000 on remodel project or a new vehicle, all I see right now is the average cost of one employee for the rest of the fiscal year.”

The message adds that there will be “radical changes” to Portland’s way of policing:

“Are there radical changes to our policing model on the horizon?  Yes, probably.  We aren’t going to get more people anytime soon.”

The email ends on an ominous note, asking officers to think about what is important to them:

“Be prepared for change.  Be thinking about what you think is important.”

Revealed: Portland mayor threatened to fire black police chief for not backing him on tear gas ban

The following editorial content was written by a retired police officer and current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today.

PORTLAND, OR- The spineless mayor of Portland, Ted Wheeler, apparently tried to overcome his persona as a wuss back in September when he threatened Police Chief Chuck Lovell he could face discipline “up to and including termination” after Lovell publicly called out Wheeler’s ban of CS gas, according to OPB.org.

A memo from Wheeler to Lovell which was released last Thursday read:

“Your message undercut my directive and demonstrated a lack of forethought of the impact of conflicting information to the community during this volatile moment within our city. This reflects a serious lack of judgement on your part.”

Wheeler also serves as Portland’s police commissioner. The memo was sent to Lovell on Sept. 11, which was one day after he had issued a ban on CS gas, which for the uninformed is a form of tear gas. The memo was first reported by the Portland Tribune not long after Wheeler sent it.

For four months, the Portland Police Bureau endured nightly riots in the city, and police deployed the gas as an attempt to get the crowds to disperse. Back in June, Wheeler, who last we checked had ZERO law enforcement experience, restricted the use of CS gas to only those times where the riots threatened “life safety.”

Since that time, the gas has been utilized much less frequently, however even the periodic use of the agent has angered rioters, who apparently feel that they should be able to burn, vandalize, destroy, and assault unimpeded. One such group of whiners, Don’t Shoot PDX has filed a lawsuit against the city for “indiscriminate use” of the agent.

According to Wheeler, he said that his chief of staff Kristin Dennis had spoken to Lovell “at length” about the ban prior to it being publicly announced, Wheeler wrote in the memo.

That memo apparently meant little to Chief Lovell, who issued a statement which publicly rebuked Wheeler.

In essence, the police bureau statement slammed Wheeler’s order, arguing (and probably rightfully so) that such a ban on use of CS gas would likely lead to even more physical contact between the police and protesters.

They argued that instead of focusing on the actions of police, the city would be better served focusing on the demonstrators (rioters), who had been engaged in months of usually violent, sometimes peaceful protests.

“The community should be asking the rioters why they are committing violence that threatens the very lives of others nearby,” said the release. “When people gather lawfully, peacefully, there is no need for intervention by police, much less the use of CS gas.”

The memo dated Sept 11 had Wheeler telling Lovell that he was expected to follow the directive and end the use of CS gas immediately, or be at risk of losing his job.

“If you do not understand these expectations, you are responsible for notifying me immediately so I can provide clarification,” he wrote. “Any failure to abide by these expectations will result in immediate action, up to and including termination.”

For Lovell, he has only been chief since June, having replaced former chief Jami Resch, who stepped down when the riots started.

Beside the memo, Wheeler also slammed Lovell in a text sent on the same date, Sept. 11.

According to public records, Wheeler texted Lovell at 1:20 a.m. on Sept 11 after the bureau had posted a statement on their Facebook page, which accused the chief of rebelling against him.

“Chuck to post a statement on the Bureau’s official Facebook page opposing my direct order is insubordination,” Wheeler wrote in the text. “Take it down.”

Wheeler is currently fighting for his mayoral life, trailing his opponent according to polls. What makes matters worse is, according to BizPacReview, his opponent, Sarah Iannarone is a self-described member of Antifa, and was seen in a photo earlier this week wearing a skirt with images of Communist dictators.

Iannone is, surprise, surprise, an educator at Portland state University and a far-left activist. She has repeatedly endorsed the nightly riots taking place in Portland and even declared, “I am Antifa.”

Among her priorities is defunding the Portland Police Bureau, which in one case was a call for a $50 million dollar cut to Portland’s $250 million police budget, or 20%.

According to a local newspaper, the Willamette Week, Iannarone has an 11-point lead over Wheeler. Her radical leanings have raised some eyebrows, however.

In their first televised debate, she admitted to being an “everyday anti-fascist.”

The moderator, KGW’s Laural Porter asked her, “You’ve been called the Antifa mayor. Are you Antifa and how would that guide how you would handle protests as mayor?”

Iannarone answered that “being opposed to fascism in 2020 is not something to be embarrassed about,” and also said with a smile that she has a bumper sticker “from the beginning of my campaign that says #EverydayAntifascist.”

She went on to spout the usual liberal talking points of “toxic masculinity” and all the usual claptrap.

The moderator finally interjected, pressing Iannarone, asking her if “being antifascist is the same thing as being Antifa? Are you Antifa?”

Then, taking up the Joe Biden talking points, she said, “Antifa is not anything more than an idea. That’s what Vice President Biden explained to us. It’s people who oppose fascism.”

But she loves her some Mao and Che Guevera, apparently.

In case you missed it, over the weekend we reported on some fine citizens who were arrested outside the Portland Police Bureau. If you’d like to catch up on these fine citizens, we invite you to:

DIG DEEPER

PORTLAND, OR – On the evening on October 10th, a protest was once again staged outside of the Portland Police Bureau North Precinct, which predictably resulted in blocked roadways and arrests.

 

According to authorities, 26 individuals were arrested under charges ranging from disorderly conduct to even concealed weapons violations.

A crowd of roughly 75 people had gathered at approximately 9:30 p.m. on the 10th at Alberta Park on 1905 Killingsworth Street and began heading toward the PPB North Precinct.

Police said those among the crowd were mostly adorned in all black clothing, with some wearing helmets, hoisting umbrellas and carrying shields.

Per standard procedure, those among the crowd were warned that any sort of criminal activity or continued blocking of roadways would result in anything from arrests, citations and crowd control agents.

 

Apparently, many from the crowd didn’t heed the warning from police, and officers began to clear the road inhabited and also started to make some targeted arrests.

Those arrested during the demonstration, and their alleged offenses, are as follows:

Overnight Sunday, authorities declared a riot in downtown Portland after a large group of violent demonstrators marched through the South Park Blocks, vandalizing and toppling statues of Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt.

 

Rioters did not stop there as they broke windows at the Oregon Historical Society building in downtown Portland.

According to reports, protesters met under the Burnside Bridge and marched to the South Park Blocks for what they declared an “Indigenous Peoples Day of Rage.”

Allegedly, there were social media posts calling for an “end” of colonialism and for the abolishment of the police. Just before 9 p.m., on Sunday, October 11th, police tweeted that a “mass gathering” had formed at Southwest Park Avenue and Southwest Madison Street.

 

Police reported that the protesters were trying to pull down a statue with a chain.

Authorities warned the protesters that anyone involved in criminal behavior, including vandalism, was subject to arrest. The Oregonian reported that the organizers of the violent protest signaled their aggressive stance for the night calling for “direct action”.

In addition, the organizers demanded that the video live-streamers and photographers who have become staples of such events to stay away. People in the crowd were repeatedly told not to film. Individuals who passed by the destruction were ordered by demonstrators to stop filming or delete photographs. 

 

The demonstrators were extremely violent towards those who were caught filming. In fact, an apartment resident had lasers shined at his eyes and a liquid thrown in his face when they saw him shooting a video of the scene from his terrace.

After downing the statues of Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln, members in the crowd began smashing windows of local buildings.

The group hung a banner that said, “Stop honoring racist colonizer murders.” A mural on the Sovereign Hotel building depicting the Lewis & Clark expedition was splattered with red paint.

 

Video from the toppled statues show that they had been vandalized with the words “Stolen Land” and “Murderer” spray-painted at their bases. 

At 9:40 p.m., police declared a riot after getting additional reports of damage. They told the crowd to disperse immediately. 

The group, nearly 200 strong, marched through downtown Portland, at one point occupying all four lanes of West Burnside Street. Most of the demonstrators were dressed in all black, from head-to-toe. Many wore body armor, carried shields, and wielded night sticks or other weapons.

 

Authorities reported that 26 people were arrested by Portland police officers after protesters gathered outside the bureau’s North Precinct and blocked streets into the late hours on Saturday night. On that night, October 10th, the North Precinct was targeted again by violent protesters.

It has been targeted numerous times over the past 130-plus nights by violent protests, including some that devolved into riots, arson fires, and violent attacks on officers. The Portland Police Bureau (PPB) had been informed that the gathering on Saturday, October 10th as well as Sunday, October 11th were “direct action” events.

There were multiple warnings broadcast over loudspeaker and social media by the PPB:

“To those who gathered near North Precinct, NE Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd is open to vehicular traffic. Immediately vacate the roadway and proceed to the sidewalk. Additionally, do not participate in criminal activity. Those who do not move off NE Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd will be subject to citation, arrest, or force.”

“If you remain in the roadway and show the intent to engage in physical resistance to removal, of if emergency circumstances require, you may be subject to the use of crowd control agents, including, but not limited to tear gas and impact weapons. Move to the sidewalk now.”

 

According to PPB, 26 people were arrested with charges including interfering with a peace officer, disorderly conduct in the second degree, resisting arrest, and carrying a concealed weapon.

PORTLAND, OR – Riots that occurred on September 5th in Portland played out in the usual form that many have come to expect. Those among the crowd of rioters threw rocks, firebombs, launched fireworks toward police officers, and numerous people wound up getting arrested.

There were reportedly 59 people arrested between the evening of September 5th and the early morning hours of the 6th in Portland, with the Portland Police Bureau sharing some of the photos of the damage that occurred, and some of the items seized from arrestees.

The crowd of rioters had reportedly gathered at Ventura Park at approximately 9:00 p.m. on the evening of September 5th, and began heading toward the East Portland Community Policing Center. Many rioters were adorned in various forms of body armor and carrying around shields as well.

It only took approximately 15 minutes after the crowd had gathered at the park initially before assaults against police started, which began with rioters tossing firebombs at officers who were strategically positioned to hinder the crowd from reaching the East Precinct.

This is the riot where video footage went viral of a rioter who managed to catch their legs on fire from their own arsonist attacks.

Things like mortar fireworks were also launched at police officers and even slingshots were used to attack the police. It didn’t take long for police to declare the protest as a riot and warned those present that tear gas was about to be deployed. This of course was ignored by the volatile crowd and police were forced to utilize tear gas.
