Portland Disbanded Police Gun Violence Unit On July 1, Finished Month With Most Homicides In 30+ Years

Portland Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler announced in June that he was authorizing radical changes to how policing was done in his city, including disbanding the city’s gun violence reduction team. Now the city is grappling with a surge in violent crime.

“Portland police are scrambling to respond to 15 homicides in the city so far in July. That’s the most killings in one month in more than three decades,” The Oregonian reported. “So far this year, 24 people have died in homicides in Portland.”

While the city has been in the national spotlight for violent riots that have occurred for over two months, the newspaper noted that overall person-to-person and property crimes were down compared to past years, but added that “homicides, assaults, burglaries and vandalism are up.”

The Oregonian added that the city had seen a total of 63 shootings in July compared to 28 the year before. Police Chief Chuck Lovell noted late last week that “the bureau was forced to cut its Gun Violence Reduction Team at the direction of the City Council.”

When Wheeler announced last month that he was enacting numerous police reforms, he said that he was “hearing loudly and clearly from demonstrators that they want fundamental reform.”

Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell blasted the move during an interview on a podcast, saying that disbanding the unit was going to hurt how the department could investigate shootings.

“The loss of the gun violence reduction team, in particular, has a diminishing effect on how we’re able to investigate shootings, which is some of the most important crimes that we investigate,” Lovell said. “So we still have to do that work and figuring out how we’re going to do that without the experience that that team had has been a bit of a challenge.”
If this isn't a classic example of how UTTERLY stupid the Left is, I don't know what is.

I hope the people of Portland wake up and realize that the local government they elected, is not keeping their best interests in mind and vote them out of office. If they don't, they get the government and the idiotic policies they deserve. They can virtue signal all they want, just keep their head down and hope they are not shot.

5 months ago you would call a police gun violence unit a threat to the constitution. make up your mind.
