Approximately fifteen Oregon State Troopers stand in a riot line on Denver St in Kenton, Portland


Over the past four plus months, police organizations in Portland have been literally pouring hazardous waste into the city through tear gas, pepperballs, and other toxic munitions.

KBOO's Nat Moon sat down with friendly expert, Dr. Juniper Simonis, to try to get a grasp on the effects this unprecedented abject refusal to respect life in the city of Portland will have on its residents.

Dr. Juniper Simonis is Portland’s resident scientist and expert on police munitions, among other things. Find more of their work at dapperstats.com.
