On this month's show:

  • The Citizen Review Committee disputes the findings of a police misconduct investigation stemming from the alleged mishandling of a car theft report, and a nightmarish confusion of paperwork. Their decision forces a conference hearing with the Chief.
  • A witness, Dr. Juniper Simonis, describes the standoff between police, Fred Meyer staff, and people reclaiming discarded food on Tuesday, February 16. The full version of this interview can be heard here.
  • A look at the history of contract bargaining between the City of Portland and its police union. Dan Handelman of Portland Copwatch speaks about the prospects for the city's demands in the current round of bargaining. A full version of that interview can be found here.
