From the Associated Press:

As violence surges, some question Portland axing police unit
By SARA CLINE
March 6, 2021

… When Penney was killed last summer, unrest was roiling liberal Portland as protesters took to the streets nightly to demand racial justice and defunding police. At the same time, one of the whitest major cities in America was experiencing its deadliest year in more than a quarter-century — a trend seen nationwide — with shootings that overwhelmingly affected the Black community.

Responding to the calls for change in policing, the mayor and City Council cut several police programs from the budget, including one Yarborough believes could have saved his nephew. A specialized unit focused on curbing gun violence, which had long faced criticism for disproportionately targeting people of color, was disbanded a month before Penney, a 27-year-old Black man visiting from Sacramento, California, was killed on July 25.

Yarborough and some other families wonder if ending the unit is partly to blame for Portland’s dramatic spike in shootings, but officials and experts attribute increased gun violence in cities nationwide to the hardships of the coronavirus pandemic, unemployment, economic anxiety and stress on mental health.

… The number of shootings [in Portland] — 900 — was nearly 2 1/2 times higher than the year before. The spike has continued this year, with more than 150 shootings, including 45 people wounded and 12 killed so far. …

While policing has been refocused in Portland, experts and officials say it’s unlikely those changes caused spikes in gun violence.

“I believe if (the Gun Violence Reduction Team) were (around) today, we would still see a substantial, if not identical increase, in shootings in Portland,” Mayor Ted Wheeler said in January. “This is clearly part of a larger national trend.”

A larger national trend of blaming the cops and extolling the criminals.

Wheeler, who is also police commissioner, announced the unit’s disbanding last June and reassigned its 34 officers to patrol. He described it as an opportunity to reimagine policing and redirected $7 million in police funds toward communities of color.

The push was led by Jo Ann Hardesty, the first Black woman elected to the City Council. She cited a 2018 audit showing nearly 60% of people stopped by the gun violence team were Black — though they make up less than 6% of the city’s population.

So far this year, there have been 17 homicides — a concerning number considering there had only been one homicide in the same period in 2020.

    It seems like Portland has been heading down a bad road for a long time. I remember, going back twenty or so years ago, talking to a nineteen or twenty year old guy who told me he was moving out to Portland from Chicago. I asked him why Portland and he said everyone he knew was going there.

    I remember hearing about a horrendous
    squatter apartment building fire about five or ten years ago. Some kind of wiring issue. The fire occured in either Portland or Seattle. There were a lot of fatalities of mostly young white people.

    And yet all these shooting are majority black on black. Just like when the black African wannabe warlord RAZ took over Chaz/Chop. blacks raped ,assaulted every White girl there and all the murders were black on black. And don't forget when RAZ showed up he opened the trunk of his car and HANDED out AK-47's. Do you cucks pay attention to anything.

    I blame the Portland Trail Blazers. Whites in Portland love the Blazers but feel tremendous guilt and embarrassment that it's all white faces in the Moda Center, except for the guys on the court. This guilt has now morphed into self-hatred and violence. All because the Blazers are Portland's only claim to the big time--without the NBA, they're basically Spokane.

  10. Brussels deploys plainclothes police officers to sexual harassment ‘hotspots’ where nearly 80% of women fear leaving home

    Announcing the move, Minister of Justice Vincent Van Quickenborne revealed that in some areas of the Belgian metropolis, almost 80 percent of women do not go out for fear of being harassed or attacked.

    Verbally abusing women in Brussels is already punishable by up to one month in prison or a maximum fine of €1,000 ($1,187), but authorities hope that the plainclothes cops will help “increase the safety and quality of life in Brussels for girls and women,” the Brussels Times reported.

    Let me guess. These “hotspots” are disproportionately affecting minority communities of color.

  11. You can’t say de-policing has “failed” unless you are quite clear about what it was trying to accomplish.

    • Agree: HammerJack
  12. The Whites of Portland made a rational decision to stop paying for the police in black neighborhoods. Blacks don’t want the policing, just go mop up what comes afterward. Blacks killing Blacks, let Gawd sort them out. Seems to be their attitude.

  13. Fun fact: The White liberal Yuppies of Portland still sneer at the majority of Whites and wish them ill.

  14. Couldn’t we just compare the crime rates in the largest counties that went for Trump and see how much the jump is covid related vs BLM related? My guess is there isn’t a crime wave affecting the countryside.

  15. Not sure where you get the 1,600% increase comes from, but the numbers I’ve seen are bad enough. Portland had 55 murders last year, which is the highest number since at least 1993. They’ve already had 18 murders for roughly the first two months of this year – and that’s in winter. If murders continue at this rate then they could double the already near record rate they had last year. Same goes with shootings: 88 for the first two months of last year versus 170 this year.

    And it could get worse. There’s a solid chance Derek Chauvin will be acquitted (as he probably deserves to be). Who wants to know how bad the riots will be if and when that happens, probably just in time for nice summer rioting weather.

    In other news, Amazon billionairess MacKenzie Scott, who has given billions to charities promoting racial equality, has just married a Lakewood School science teacher. Lakewood is famous for lifting hundreds of ghetto kids like Bill Gates out of their trust fund poverty and molding them into real pillars of the community. Without a school like Lakewood, Bill Gates and Paul Allen probably would probably have been running brutal, crack dealing street gangs on Bainbridge Island.

    The article says that in the 1st 3 months of 2020 (before the Summer of Floyd) there was 1 murder in Portland and this year there have been 17 in the same period, so Steve correctly says that's a 1600% increase (he's not innumerate like the Google black HR lady who said going from 0 to 300 was a 300% increase). Going from 1 to 2 would be a 100% increase, 1 to 3 would be a 200% increase, etc.

    The article says 17 and you say 18 so there must have been another one recently.

    Frankly, Portland has a long way to go. This weekend there were 21 shootings in Chicago, which is typical nowadays (last weekend was also 21). Nowadays, thanks to advancements in trauma treatment and blacks' lack of aiming skill (and reckless disregard for human life - blacks do not consider the presence of innocent bystanders in the line of fire to be a reason to hold fire) there was only 1 death out of the 21 shootings.

    Philly has 88 murders YTD. Even adjusting for population, that's more than double the rate in Portland. Although the fact that it is only double is impressive give Portland's relatively small black % - they are more than pulling their weight nowadays. Generally speaking, a city's homicide rate is most closely correlated with their % of black population - you can probably predict the (relative) homicide rate with 80% accuracy based solely on that one number (putting aside external disturbances like BLM which aggravate black murder everywhere).

    Probably, but it isn’t linear. Blacker cities tend to have more violent blacks. The blacks that have moved to the suburbs, or to out of the way places like Denver or Salt Lake, tend to be better educated. If black murder rates in Utah were as high as the deadliest places, then blacks would have committed about 20-30 of our 103 murders last year. They commit more than their share here, but it was probably closer to half that number.

    Jack, Buffalo, with only 250K citizens, had 8 murders in January and if you extrapolate that out for the year it would be 96 murders or 38 per 100,000. Those are Central America murder rates and January was wicked cold this year. But on the plus side, long waiting lists for vaccine, high unemployment, favorite restaurants closed for good, gasoline prices up 50 cents per gallon in just two weeks and kids still not in school.

    Cities that are only 6-12% black will be hardest hit. Places where the black population is large enough that crime and policing are an issue but where the issue of violent crime is confined to certain places and doesn’t touch most people at all.

    It is in places like these that activists will get their way the most. And honestly, it will partly be because people don’t care what happens in certain places to make any pushback happen. The consequences will not be felt for the bulk of the population until it’s too late.

    I am often reminded of an episode of Hoarders, where a black mother and her adult black milquetoast son were both living in hoarding squalor in an apartment building in New York.

    It was clear after watching the episode that the reason for their hoarding was that the two were civilized, mild folk caught living in a black war zone, and so the hoarding was a method of literally building up walls between themselves and the rotten, violent blacks in the neighborhood outside.

    These are the folks who will and are suffering most: good black people in black neighborhoods. I feel for them, but, then again, they vote D and blame whitey like all the rest, so really, they built their own problems with that.

    Aha. Well who reads the article?

    Fwiw, Portland’s murder rate last year was “only” about 9.3 per 100,000, which is much, much lower than the worst American cities. And if it doubles last year’s number of murders and hits 110 this year, it will still only be about 18 murders per 100,000. I’m too lazy to look this morning, but that probably doesn’t even put it up in the top 25 cities for murder rates.

    The problem is that a) Portland is very white, and only ~6% black, and that’s an extremely high murder rate for a city that’s so white; b) a higher share of Portland’s metro population (25-33%) lives in the actual city than in many other metro areas. High murder rates for a major city may not mean much if ~90% of the metro population lives outside the city limits.

    And again, the Derek Chauvin verdict is the big billion dollar question hanging over everyone’s head this year, specially the Democrats. I assume the prosecutors and Minnesota pols are doing everything they can to rig the outcome, but if the jury comes back with an acquittal you can expect the riots this year to make last years look pretty damn mild.

  28. Percentages are intended to be a means of summarising numerical information in a manner that is easy to understand. When the numbers more than double I am not sure they do the job very well. They certainly don’t do the job well when the fraction is tiny, say, three in a thousand. In that instance it is far better to say “three in a thousand” than it is to say 0.3 percent . When the increases that are more than double, say in this case from 10 to 160 maybe one should say “16 times as many”. I don’t know.

    I lived through the ultraviolent crack days of late 1980s/early 1990s NYC. By the end of Rudy’s first term (1993-97), however, the prior conversations about crime in NYC had turned to how boring it had become with things like the “Disneyfication” of Times Square and the onslaught of big box stores. These things really do seem to go in cycles.

    Not sure where you get the 1,600% increase comes from
     
    The article says that in the 1st 3 months of 2020 (before the Summer of Floyd) there was 1 murder in Portland and this year there have been 17 in the same period, so Steve correctly says that's a 1600% increase (he's not innumerate like the Google black HR lady who said going from 0 to 300 was a 300% increase). Going from 1 to 2 would be a 100% increase, 1 to 3 would be a 200% increase, etc.

    The article says 17 and you say 18 so there must have been another one recently.

    Frankly, Portland has a long way to go. This weekend there were 21 shootings in Chicago, which is typical nowadays (last weekend was also 21). Nowadays, thanks to advancements in trauma treatment and blacks' lack of aiming skill (and reckless disregard for human life - blacks do not consider the presence of innocent bystanders in the line of fire to be a reason to hold fire) there was only 1 death out of the 21 shootings.

    Philly has 88 murders YTD. Even adjusting for population, that's more than double the rate in Portland. Although the fact that it is only double is impressive give Portland's relatively small black % - they are more than pulling their weight nowadays. Generally speaking, a city's homicide rate is most closely correlated with their % of black population - you can probably predict the (relative) homicide rate with 80% accuracy based solely on that one number (putting aside external disturbances like BLM which aggravate black murder everywhere).

    Probably, but it isn’t linear. Blacker cities tend to have more violent blacks. The blacks that have moved to the suburbs, or to out of the way places like Denver or Salt Lake, tend to be better educated. If black murder rates in Utah were as high as the deadliest places, then blacks would have committed about 20-30 of our 103 murders last year. They commit more than their share here, but it was probably closer to half that number.

    Aha. Well who reads the article?

    Fwiw, Portland’s murder rate last year was “only” about 9.3 per 100,000, which is much, much lower than the worst American cities. And if it doubles last year’s number of murders and hits 110 this year, it will still only be about 18 murders per 100,000. I’m too lazy to look this morning, but that probably doesn’t even put it up in the top 25 cities for murder rates.

    The problem is that a) Portland is very white, and only ~6% black, and that’s an extremely high murder rate for a city that’s so white; b) a higher share of Portland’s metro population (25-33%) lives in the actual city than in many other metro areas. High murder rates for a major city may not mean much if ~90% of the metro population lives outside the city limits.

    And again, the Derek Chauvin verdict is the big billion dollar question hanging over everyone’s head this year, specially the Democrats. I assume the prosecutors and Minnesota pols are doing everything they can to rig the outcome, but if the jury comes back with an acquittal you can expect the riots this year to make last years look pretty damn mild.

  60. Black Lives Matter/today’s Democratic Party are way too Far Left radical even for NWA. NWA only wanted to say fuck the police, not defund the police/abolish the police!

  61. most murders are committed by men and blacks are overrepresented in the fatalities and the perps.

    But how about a comparison of rates in cities or regions?

    Houston has a lot of blacks and a lot more people than Portland but I am guessing there will be no riots of a major nature in any town in Texas. Is there a less belligerent culture in Texas? Probably not. What there is is a much less tolerant culture. ee cummings allowed that there was some zhit one of his characters would not eat. Same here.

    Prediction: no major riots anywhere in Texas this summer; lots of them elsewhere.

    @Jack D

    Jack, Buffalo, with only 250K citizens, had 8 murders in January and if you extrapolate that out for the year it would be 96 murders or 38 per 100,000. Those are Central America murder rates and January was wicked cold this year. But on the plus side, long waiting lists for vaccine, high unemployment, favorite restaurants closed for good, gasoline prices up 50 cents per gallon in just two weeks and kids still not in school. People are starting to notice that biden isn't the answer.

    It seems like Portland has been heading down a bad road for a long time. I remember, going back twenty or so years ago, talking to a nineteen or twenty year old guy who told me he was moving out to Portland from Chicago. I asked him why Portland and he said everyone he knew was going there.

    I remember hearing about a horrendous

    Brussels deploys plainclothes police officers to sexual harassment ‘hotspots’ where nearly 80% of women fear leaving home

    Announcing the move, Minister of Justice Vincent Van Quickenborne revealed that in some areas of the Belgian metropolis, almost 80 percent of women do not go out for fear of being harassed or attacked.

    Verbally abusing women in Brussels is already punishable by up to one month in prison or a maximum fine of €1,000 ($1,187), but authorities hope that the plainclothes cops will help “increase the safety and quality of life in Brussels for girls and women,” the Brussels Times reported.

    It seems like Portland has been heading down a bad road for a long time. I remember, going back twenty or so years ago, talking to a nineteen or twenty year old guy who told me he was moving out to Portland from Chicago. I asked him why Portland and he said everyone he knew was going there.

    I remember hearing about a horrendous
    squatter apartment building fire about five or ten years ago. Some kind of wiring issue. The fire occured in either Portland or Seattle. There were a lot of fatalities of mostly young white people.

    I believe the cited fire was in Oakland. The Ghost Ship. Portending name.

    The huge number of deaths was because, in addition to using the warehouse as an illegal multi-tenant residence, they were also using it as an illegal concert hall. The "concert" (rave) was given on the 2nd floor which only had one means of egress via some kind of shaky staircase made out of shipping pallets.

    Every generation thinks that it is going to reinvent the world in some way that is free and different than the way that annoying old white men with all of their "rules and regulations" have structured it. Everything fun is illegal. You can't just get a bunch of your friends together and have a good time - there is all of this shit about fire codes and permits and sprinklers and so on. Why do they need all this stuff? It's just more of the white man's materialism. The Native Americans lived in peace without any lighted exit signs. And then it all goes up in flames.

    I think these stats are something the skinny white punk of Portland will be quite proud of:

    "We're keeping it real in Portland now.. This ain't no Whitopia like they show on TV. I got homies right next door to me, in fact, but we're not racist here like you rednecks. We don't redline them or chase them out with big dogs, well, not NEXT door, but down the block, OK, a couple of blocks on the other side of that stoplight, see it?"

    "You ain't livin' in REAL big city American, lessin' you got a few murders a week. Now, that's livin', and NO, I DINT just start droppin' my "g"s for this interview, ni**a!.

    I blame the Portland Trail Blazers. Whites in Portland love the Blazers but feel tremendous guilt and embarrassment that it’s all white faces in the Moda Center, except for the guys on the court. This guilt has now morphed into self-hatred and violence. All because the Blazers are Portland’s only claim to the big time–without the NBA, they’re basically Spokane.

    And yet all these shooting are majority black on black. Just like when the black African wannabe warlord RAZ took over Chaz/Chop. blacks raped ,assaulted every White girl there and all the murders were black on black. And don’t forget when RAZ showed up he opened the trunk of his car and HANDED out AK-47’s. Do you cucks pay attention to anything.

    Update: the Ghost Ship 'warehouse" murder just got sentenced to "home confinement for another year and a half."

    Commie female judge said because he "admitted guilt" he should be treated leniently.

    Worked at the Nuremberg Trials so....

  103. I live in the Portland area. You drive around now, graffiti is everywhere, homeless tents, etc. It didn’t used to be like this. We’re basically returning to the bad old days of the 1970s. The smart people are getting out, going to the burbs. It will take 20 years for the cycle to run its course, because as people leave, only the “woke” voters are left, and they’ll continue to double down rather than admit they were wrong.

    Does Hillsboro count as a suburb, or has it now grown into Portlandia enough that they are essentially merged? Intel has a pretty big investment there, they wouldn't want to have employees too scared to move. That company also wouldn't like Multnomah county tax policy to get too progressive.

    Not sure where you get the 1,600% increase comes from
     
    The article says that in the 1st 3 months of 2020 (before the Summer of Floyd) there was 1 murder in Portland and this year there have been 17 in the same period, so Steve correctly says that's a 1600% increase (he's not innumerate like the Google black HR lady who said going from 0 to 300 was a 300% increase). Going from 1 to 2 would be a 100% increase, 1 to 3 would be a 200% increase, etc.

    The article says 17 and you say 18 so there must have been another one recently.

    Frankly, Portland has a long way to go. This weekend there were 21 shootings in Chicago, which is typical nowadays (last weekend was also 21). Nowadays, thanks to advancements in trauma treatment and blacks' lack of aiming skill (and reckless disregard for human life - blacks do not consider the presence of innocent bystanders in the line of fire to be a reason to hold fire) there was only 1 death out of the 21 shootings.

    https://chicago.suntimes.com/2021/3/6/22316796/chicago-weekend-shootings-march-5-8-gun-violence-crime

    Philly has 88 murders YTD. Even adjusting for population, that's more than double the rate in Portland. Although the fact that it is only double is impressive give Portland's relatively small black % - they are more than pulling their weight nowadays. Generally speaking, a city's homicide rate is most closely correlated with their % of black population - you can probably predict the (relative) homicide rate with 80% accuracy based solely on that one number (putting aside external disturbances like BLM which aggravate black murder everywhere).

    It is only six percent black. You work with what you’ve got.
