Local Media Helps Criminal Homeless Make Portland Unlivable

Break out the sad violins; Portland’s moonbat media proves that the criminal homeless are oppressed:

One in every two arrests made by the Portland Police Bureau last year was of a homeless person, an analysis by The Oregonian/OregonLive has found.

The number of arrests is dramatically disproportionate to Portland’s homeless population. People experiencing homelessness represent a tiny fraction of the city’s overall population — well below 3 percent even using the biggest estimates.

Yet in 2017, they accounted for 52 percent of arrests.

This could only be the result of discrimination. No one would imagine that people with jobs are less likely to break the law than upstanding derelicts like meth-injecting Brian Lankford:

Last year, police arrested Lankford seven times. In the past decade, they’ve arrested him 219 times.

Who is responsible for the myriad crimes committed by the Brian Lankfords who have been creating Third World conditions in Left Coast cities? Certainly not the criminals.

The arrests are a symptom of Portland and the federal government’s failure to end homelessness.

All that is needed is for the Supreme Court to discover that housing is a human right. Then the federal government can buy everybody a house on borrowed money. Problem solved.

Arresting criminals is pointless, becauseā€¦

Advocates say arresting so many homeless people only adds to the city’s homeless crisis, making it harder for people with long criminal histories to find housing.

Plus, even in a city whose Chief of Police is a Woman of Color named Danielle Outlaw, the cops are oppressors.

Police can easily criminalize behaviors, like trespassing, that are byproducts of being mentally ill or addicted while living on the streets.

Only a bigot would criminalize behaviors like trespassing that are perfectly acceptable so long as you are psychotic and/or on drugs.

Sometimes police actually go into homeless camps looking for criminals, for no better reason than because it is such an easy place to find them. No worries; the ACLU is on the case.

Kimberly McCullough, legislative director for the American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon, said her organization questions whether such practices are permitted under the state’s anti-profiling law.

This moonbattery is doing to Portland what it has tragically done to San Francisco.
