December 17th, Occupy Portland decides that Open Borders and AMnesty is the only nice way to deal with illegal mexicas. I think they have one brain cell amongst all of them
One protester reported that during their arrest, they were told to plead “not guilty” and the charge would be dismissed. The reason? If the case were to go to the Oregon Supreme Court, it was likely that the city ordinance would be overturned on Constitutional grounds.
“I’ve been protesting because we shouldn’t be afraid of our government,” Nadia Greene said. “We shouldn’t be afraid of the police who exist to protect us.”
Drawing attention to the hypocrisy of how we enforce our laws was one of the messages many of the arrestees shared. Others were interested in the human aspect.
“I think we really accomplished community awareness which caused the discussion to happen,” Brad Beach said.
But the protesters and officers weren’t all business. “When they started chanting ‘You’re sexy, you’re cute, take off the riot suit’, the protesters and officers were chuckling.”
“I want to do this every night,” Jacob Clary said. “I want to encourage the public discussion which was a result of this sit-in. I don’t want to keep this kind of action just to the Pearl, I want to be in every sector of the city.”
While the interaction was overall very professional and lacked the air of police brutality we have seen in places like Oakland, some arrestees did report rough behavior.
“I was kept in a squad car for four hours,” Cameron Whitten told supporters. “When I was remaining silent they weren’t very friendly. They knew who I was, I heard them talking about me. I got slapped a few times, and had a car door shut against my head twice.
“As soon as I complied and told them my name though, they were suddenly very nice
“once again I, snoremonster, am really pissed off. the charges will be dismissed poor people never get charges dismissed. The Thirty are protected by donations and public outrage are not changing the system . Try taking the protest to Washington County- Charges won’t be dismissed – the liberal Lawyers in Portland won’t make any headway with the Rabid DA’s.The police reports won’t be fabrications upheld by the Judges. Get out of Multnomah County if you want to change Oregon.
Once again this was the Ladies Flower Club pretending to speak for the masses , for the poor. It’s all street theatre no real challenge to the Power structure.”
Police Arrest 30 ‘Occupy Wall Street’ Protesters in Oregon: Obama ruins economy; inspires shantytown. Turns out Many of those arrested are not young, but closer to 40 and some are still in jail for refusing to give their name and using Jane or John Doe. I guess the Young Rich Kids decided Social Justice wasn’t worth a rap sheet. Mug Shots Below
Dont worry about those arrested, they will have good attorneys, not the very crappy Metropolitian Public Defenders. Now ,they can be martyrs for the poor , who they have done absolutely nothing for , other then destroy two public parks and run up the taxpayer police tab.

In the meantime the real invasion and occupation of illegal aliens continues from Mexico, China India. If they had tried to Occupy Washington County I would have had more respect for them. Portland has turned into Sesame street for affluent hipsters.

PORTLAND, Ore. – Police arrested about 30 anti-Wall Street protesters in Portland early Sunday, dragging and carrying them to waiting vans, after they refused to leave a park in an affluent district.
The arrests came after protesters from the Occupy Portland movement marched to the Pearl District, with some saying they viewed its residents as part of the wealthy demographic they’re protesting.
Dozens of them gathered in Jamison Square Saturday evening to defy a midnight curfew to vacate.
