Alleged violent criminals back on the streets of Oregon after public defender shortage leads to dismissal of hundreds of cases
In Oregon, charges against hundreds of alleged criminals, including those accused of violent crimes, have been dropped due to a shortage of public defenders.Oregon currently has just 31% of the public defenders it requires. As a result, nearly 800 individu...
This is what it looks like when your society starts to break down.
It is pretty bad right now in Portland.
If you are a Proud Boy you'll get railroaded with the full strength of the court system, if you are a multiple rapist on drugs with 30+ felonies you get let out without any bail and they don't even look for you after you skip your court date.
The solution is for people to find the names and addresses of these scum criminals and then sign them up as proudboys then form an angry antifa mob DEMANDING the domestic terrorist Proud Boy s be arrested!
Their addresses are places like "Third tent to the left under the bridge at Burnside"
Truly the most real estate in all of America.
The real solution gets your called a glowie around here.
Zero consequences encourages bad actors.
In Lane County, the DA publicly announced that they would no longer be prosecuting misdemeanors and non-violent felonies, effectively giving a green light to criminals. A friend of mine had a drunk driver crash through his yard last year, damaging his house, taking down a fence, and totaling his wife's car. The drunk then fled the scene in his damaged but still drivable truck. My friend's security cameras were able to identify the drunk's vehicle, which was a company truck, and the police had no trouble finding the driver, but no charges were filed.
The police are not going to respond to everything nor write charges on everything they see. I don't understand why people think they do. This is where lawsuits need to be filed. The friends cameras hold all the evidence needed. There is no reason to put an incompetent middleman into the situation.
It's not the police, it's the DA. The DA is responsible for filing charges and they aren't prosecuting any misdemeanors or non-violent felonies. In this case the police did their job.
Same organization. Same sentiment. They don't work for you. They work for whoever is sitting in the highest office, or more likely the one one(s) who put that person in the highest office.
My overall message here is, stop relying on the state to take care of your problems. They have zero obligation to help you. Your friend should be doing their own leg work and building a case.
Building a case for what? That doesn't make any sense.
They already know have the ID of the drunk driver and they know he did it. They aren't going to prosecute him. Case closed.
My friend doesn't need to do anything. The company who owned the vehicle and employed the driver was on the hook for paying all the damages, and their insurance has done so. The issue here is that the drunk driver is still out on the streets and will probably do it again. I'm sure he was fired and the DMV pulled his license temporarily, but he faced no criminal charges.
Half true. Remove "starts to" and add an "s" to "break" from your post.
My liberal TDS dad lives just outside Portland. He gets what he fucking deserves. Spent his whole life voting to ruin CA, then flees to a safe white golfing neighborhood in OR. Surrounded by a wall even, he was very proud of himself. Saw no hypocrisy whatsoever in the move.
He'll have to live way out in Banks, Canby, Vancouver or The Dalles to escape that shitshow now.
Hillsburrito has spilled its South-Of-The-Border gangland, err, habits, out west to Cornelius and Forest Grove, where a shitload of liberals thought they could buy some acreage. Beaverton is a shithole.
So let's go East... Gresham? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Yeah, they're fucked.
The only relatively safe havens in Portland Metro is Southward or Northward, but Tualatin and Wilsonville are crammed full, and the West Linn / Lake O area will cost you $$$$$($$!) to live there. Up North, Vantucky (err, Vancouver, WA) is actually doing pretty good, in spite of being the former ghetto of Portland Metro. Problem there is, traffic sucks massive ass, and ODOT wants to toll the bridges over the river on I-5 and I-205.
Hate to say it, but in spite of the above, in 5 years your old man will be basically fucked. His only salvation is in Columbia, Tillamook, or (maybe) parts of Clackamas county. Most of Multnomah and Washington counties (and parts of Clackamas) are basically fucked.
He might have to move to Greater Idaho. Baker City, Idaho looks good still.
Given MultCo's property tax rates, his kids would've been fucked anyway.
Gresham is a fucking ghetto now. I have a friend who lives there.
Sadly, we are deteriorating even here on the coast as more California leftists flood in every year. My small town school board is controlled by leftists and we have a fucking drag queen running now.
The coast has been getting it hard for a loooong time - between the Californians and the PERS-babies going out to live the good life on our dime? Fuuuu...
Yep, I've seen it deteriorate drastically over the last several years. Even most of the local population that graduated from high school here are completely indoctrinated commies because the lefties have been controlling the schools for decades. The local high school churns out communists and trannies like a factory now.
Written by someone who knows.
I live in vancouver. It's bad here.Now i have to buy a gun to feel safe.
My small town here in Oregon is full of California transplants that match that description.
Spoiler alert: During the scamdemic lockdowns, those same lefty fucks crammed the various county campgrounds full of people, since it was the only place you could go w/o having to wear a mask.
It's only a matter of time until he experiences lawless Oregon.
If he drives a manual trans car he'll be able to keep it longer....
One of the reasons I drive a manual 98 wrangler :)
Yup. No automatics here either...
how many joggers do they have in Oregon!?!?
Free drugs, housing, and rent? They are like moths to a flame when you have free gibs, lax laws, and "social equity".
The bussed in rioters never left either. They had a short trip to NY, but they came back. Ol Ted “please burn my city down” Wheeler even made them a whole call paid for by the city.
Oh, that's not all... Portland city commission is all hot to build a big tent city style campground for these fucks. To add insult to injury, gov. Tina Kotek wants to build them a shitload of free housing.
I find meth heads are particularly reliable in the upkeep of their homes. I see no issues handing them a pile of copper and other materials that are worth more then they will make in what is left of their lifetime. Squatting is apparently horrific there with the number of empty homes.
And after the chaos of this modern Sodom and Gomorrah comes to an end, all the crying and screaming for help will rise from the decimation. Propagandist and politicians will pick up the flag of help and revitalization in the name of humanity and tender hearted Americans will acquiesce to the call for compasion. Once again spending billions of tax dollars to pay for the mistakes that liberals didn't learn from history.
Maybe once Ukraine is the center of Euro-Asian economy they will be able to send us foreign aid.
Actually I think there won’t be the huge money surplus to spend, which will trigger a lot of other unrest. Our only hope is really an economic downturn to starve the bribes and payouts to the libs. Then we go from there… I’m open to another solution but that’s the only viable one I see.
1 is too many.
Portland is like 6% now, and lots of white and Hispanic meth heads that are "experiencing houselessness".
It's easy to "experience houselessness" when the government keeps you well fed and cared for at taxpayer expense. In Eugene they are planning on giving them $1,000 a month on top of all the other free shit they already get.
Evidently, too many
Portland is a homosexual hell hole. Fuck em
"why do you need an AR-15?"
Fuck the 30-round magazines... I'm gonna need a few reliable 100-round drums.
good luck with that
From the article:
Oregon currently has just 31% of the public defenders it requires. As a result, nearly 800 individuals are waiting to be assigned public defenders for their cases, according to Oregon Judicial Department reporting. Of those individuals, 76 are currently waiting in jail, with some cases taking weeks or even months.
Even worse are these are the ones they simply didn’t just let go via the liberal revolving door of justice.
You know? If only they'd reinstate public executions for shit, most of this backlog would solve itself...
Wokelandia loves their criminal betters - may they reap the blessing of their pro-crime nirvana.
This was the entire goal to begin with.
These commies hate all of us and want us dead.
It’s not a glitch, it’s a feature.
Which is why they proudly and publicly announce it.
It's a great time to be a minority criminal.
Or a minority actor, or a black resident of San Francisco.
easy, make liberal judges work as public defenders
When they say "let violent criminals go free" it isn't "Oh dear what a shame." It's "plan working as intended".
In St. Louis, Kim Gardner's DA office failed to appear in the trial for murderers, causing the prosecution to lose by default and the criminal was released.
Because they want to let criminals go free. Believe me, they have unlimited resources to prosecute people who protest drag shows, speak out at school board meetings, or dare to defend themselves from leftists.
This is what I'd call a business opportunity.
Most jurisdictions I've seen will just start assigning local defense attorneys these clients when they run out of Public Defenders. Hell, my hometown didn't even have public defenders, just a round-robin list of practicing local attorneys.
While technically the correct decision if due process can't be afforded, this is just another reason not to live in these blue hellholes as the controlled demolition continues.
i don’t like this because it compels the action of an individual to represent you, the same reason health care is not a right
Due process is a right, though, and lawyers (both prosecutors and defense attorneys) are representatives of the court. As I stated, releasing these people is correct if they can't be afforded representation. It's something attorneys agree to as part of being licensed and barred in that jurisdiction.
These attorneys are compensated for their time and effort, though it may not meet their standard fees, and as part of being a member of the bar in good standing, they are expected to have a certain percentage of pro bono clients, and if they are part of any law firm of note, those pro bono hours are, more often than not, required.
allow attorneys to be unlicensed then for public defenders
Not going to hear any arguments from me. All licensures are nothing more than bureaucratic, institutional control systems.
The Left are ungovernable, and hence successful with their subvertive agenda.
Won't end well, you see how they take care of their community gardens?
It's crazy how they just don't care about people. While claiming to be the party that cares.
Reap what you sow motherfuckers.
Ppl gonna start taking justice into their own hands.
Those are the only cases being tried.
The likelihood of them finding you is very low. The shortages also apply to the police.
Feel free to live in Portland and try out your luck!
I’d rather live in the Bible Belt area and commute in :)
“Don’t you dare defend yourselves from the chaos we worked hard to create!” - Commies
They got plenty of resources if they need to indict you on not wearing a mask, criticizing a public employee or taking a guided tour.
Yup. And watch out if you step on an LGBTQ EIEIO flag.
Yup, OreGone all right.
This DA is from around my area in CNY, def trump country rural. Syr.com wrote a puff piece about him and in the article he says his time in NOLA teaching, and the “difference in kids he taught not obeying police and the danger of that”. What kind of retard thinks it’s safe for anyone to not obey police. These fucking ethnomasochistic white men are the biggest fucking problem today.
Oops, another "accident".
Because Oregon is a POS.
Who's the prosecutor for Oregon. Who and/or what organization helped elect him. Was it Becky Bond? Who hires and is in charge of public defenders? Lots of mid lawyers take up public defender cases. Sounds like someone's purposefully not prosecuting criminals.
However, even in my state there's at least a lack of judges here so cases have a long wait time now.
It’s a soyboy from CNY, around where I live. Total trump country. He says his Time in NOLA teaching showed how dangerous it was for blacks to disobey police. A true fucking retard.
I'm sure every one of them is thankful to be freed without any charges and will change their ways and not be violent criminals anymore.
Someone tell those judges that these people are Republicans so we can keep Walmart/Target/Walgreens open and the streets a little safe.
I had jury duty 2 years ago. I felt the Defense made a fantastic job of proving the defendant guilty.
Meanwhile in DC, some people who walked through the Capitol, are rotting away in prison for two plus years.
Oregon is no longer part of America. It's now the Anarchist Cove - no laws allowed, no police nor courts allowed. It's straight mob rule. It's stupid for America to allow this to exist. Unchecked, mob rule will try to spread because they've had success, & that will eat up more states with anarchist thugs. Oregon State government must be seized by the feds & ruled with force or the citizens must be permitted to use force to end mob rule - whatever it takes.
Until someone "important" - read that loud known liberal person - is killed or injured terribly, it will not change.
This has been going on for decades in Portland. There's always some excuse why they have to let criminals walk. I've heard jail shortage, judge shortage, police shortage, now it's DA shortage. It's all bullshit.
WOKNESS is the problem. Democrat party controlled cities are violent WOKE SHITHOLES!
Thank a DEMOCRAT party voter each time you are robbed and raped in a Democrat party controlled city 🤡🤬
Head on a Swivel... Make yourself a hard target.
Target practice. Let's go!
Good with it....
It's a feature, not a bug
