Host Karen James speaks with Teri Jacobs and civil rights attorney Juan Chavez with the Oregon Justice Resource Center. Following the murder of George Floyd, protests erupted in many cities around the world. Independent photojournalist Teri Jacobs was documenting protests in the streets of Portland, Oregon on August 18, 2020 when police declared an unlawful assembly and ordered the crowd to disperse. Teri was struck repeatedly until she fell to the ground and when she looked up, Portland Police Officer Corey Budworth bashed her in the face. There was no justification for the excessive use of force against Teri Jacobs and she sued the City of Portland. Teri was not only awarded a $50,000 settlement, she also received an apology from Officer Budworth.
